How to stand out from the competition in the marke

  • Detail

Editor's note: before the famous print 05 exhibition was held, professionals in the printing industry held a seminar in Canada with the theme of "the arrival of the digital era of binding plants". The seminar emphasized the influence of new binding and finishing technologies and the latest developments in information packaging equipment and direct mail services. As we all know, in the era of meager profits, post press processing is the top priority for printing enterprises to obtain profits. Therefore, it is necessary for us to review the essence of this conference and find some inspiration for ourselves

a total of 65 industry insiders participated in the recent symposium on printa2 and the use of horizontal tension machine, including bookbinders, ordinary commercial printers, direct mail experts, print sellers, consultants, and raw material suppliers. The theme of this symposium is "the arrival of the digital era of binding plants"

the printaction seminar held at the Toronto Board of trade also introduced some new equipment and technologies presented at the print `05 converting exhibition held in Chicago to the participants who provided salad and 3 Meiji packaging containers for large retailers and coffee shops

the conference emphasized the influence of new binding and finishing technologies. These new technologies appeared in drupa in 1995, and their development speed was unstoppable in drupa in 2004. Although the global printing industry is in a recession, the drupa exhibition shows that raw material suppliers invest% of their revenue in the research and development of new technologies. In the pia/gatf (American Printing Industry Association and American Printing Technology Foundation) technology awards, the increasing proportion of post press processing innovation awards also further confirms the practicality of this technology

creating value

the investigation report on creating value by the American Offset Printing Association (NAPL) was completed in early 2005. Due to the expansion of strategic space, the 317 manufacturers surveyed hope to develop in this area in the future. The stable manufacturers and some other industry insiders who attended this meeting have learned about the benefits that digital services can provide. Our only goal is to distinguish our company and services from many other competitors in the same industry in the market

in this survey and similar surveys, the field of post press processing and binding finishing itself has not been proposed as an investment project with significant impact throughout the entire printing industry. At the same time, some far sighted printers seized the opportunity to invest in the purchase of these new equipment for post press processing as part of their strategic decision to complete the computer integration departure from the fixed fixture mobile manufacturing (CIM) workflow. Most industry leaders are reluctant to share their successful experience with their peers for fear that their competitors will follow their example

the latest CIM workflow will save 20% of the cost. One automatic paper cutter can complete the work of the past two paper cutters, while one automatic binding machine has stronger production capacity. It can complete the workload of the past two or even three old binding machines, thus creating greater opportunities for enterprises

Ralph pasquariello, deputy manager of post press production management in Heidelberg, believes that the addition of automatic servo motor can save more than 40% of the operation preparation time. The automatic folding machine can turn an 8-page Book note into a folded fold (also known as organ fold, fan fold) map in 60 seconds. The automatic paper cutter can reduce the job preparation time by 55%, while the automatic stapler can save at least 50% of the job preparation time

According to pasquariello, many printers who invest in new binding technologies spend most of their time removing the stacker and loading it into the automatic paper feeding position, which is even longer than the automatic switching between jobs. Some printers may think that investing in this project will limit their capital turnover. However, other printers are eager to sell their old equipment, because two old equipment have failed to meet the requirements. One is the urgent need to print office documents and new book samples, and the other is the need to enter the postal industry

printing houses with old-fashioned binding machines face two problems at the same time. They will not debug the machines separately in order to print 25 new book samples. However, in printing plants with automatic staplers and binding machines, there are few manual operations, and there is a special small stack of paper tables, which can be used to complete the work of (or the number of books ordered by customers). When a work is completed, the operator will prepare the materials of the new book samples and complete the work with only 30 new book samples by pressing the button on the equipment. At the same time, according to the product description, it can also complete the printing of two new book samples before the paper stacking table of the next moving piece is ready
