As quality and production speeds for inkjet presses come into alignment, it is seen by some as to be an almost perfect printing process, if done correctly, since there is no image carrier, no makeready
, instant drying and integrated finishing.
In the medium term, the printer, manroland web systems, and Kodak will optimize the installation to reduce makeready
time to just a few minutes, make the setup easier to use, and improve registration.
Komori calculated an average of less than five minutes per job, including makeready
, pre-ink, run-up to color, achieving register, running, wash-up and on to the next job.
Total quantity or scope: 5 lots, proposed a site and a treatment method for waste "bulky"> 80cm, waste "incinerated" in excess of 220 tons monthly and during 4-5 weeks annual technical stop CVED Vitre, waste wood, waste and gypsum plasterboard, polystyrene makeready
With regard to makeready
, Harkens suggested using a standard procedure for operators to start with, as well as employing meticulous inspection of raw materials.
This makes bypassed printing units and the use of blind plates a thing of the past, resulting in shorter makeready
times and less waste.
and waste on offset presses may be down sharply, but it still can't touch that of a toner-based press.
King Printing has a reputation for its eagerness to embrace the latest technology, starting with production digital printing in 1989, fully automated CTP in 1995, zero makeready
binding equipment in 2004, full-color inkjet in 2008 and the PROSPER 1000 Press in 2010.
Thanks to the die cutter's short makeready
times, users benefit from high productivity and excellent cost-efficiency.
The result is a marked reduction in makeready
times and paper waste.
From the economic perspective, the reduction in makeready
times, waste, maintenance, and labor input associated with the Cortina's automation and cutting-edge technology--which include KBA PlateTronic automatic plate changers and CleanTronic washing systems--was a key criterion influencing our investment decision," said Al Nisr managing director Obaid Humaid Al Tayer.
In addition to the iGen presses, CCM has five Xerox Nuvera([R]) devices including one Nuvera 144 Production System and four Nuvera 120 Production Systems along with FreeFlow Makeready
and Web Services software to produce a variety of on-demand applications.
