Increase Print Capacity by Thinking

Posted by Dan Marx on 6/29/18, 9:00 AM

Do you have more print work than your company has the capacity to handle? If yes, then the next step should be to go out and start looking for new equipment, right? Before you make appointments with your accountant and your banker, you should ask yourself a few questions, like:

  • Are our press change-overs and make-ready as quick and efficient as they can be?
  • How often do we find ourselves re-doing jobs due to an error on our part?
  • Do we ever find ourselves waiting for materials (paper, substrate, inks) that we thought we had on hand?
  • Is maximizing the speed of our press limited by pre-press/finishing/shipping?

In each of these examples, valuable press time is wasted. In all these circumstances, there is room – through efficiency – to increase your print capacity without capital expense. Ask first, buy later (when you really need to).
