For the efficient running of a modern packaging printing business, there are a lot of components to consider. A complete production machine that runs smoothly is the first and foremost requirement. However, technology ages quickly and only by continued investment can the efficiency of a production be kept up to market standards. It is, however, possible to stay up to date with technology by means of adding adaptations and improvements to a machine.
In order to be able to asses whether production runs are performing profitably, it is important to be able to successfully schedule and calculate them. For this, a Management Information System is indispensable. Hand-in-hand with this are improvements in storage and other logistics, all of which will allow for a smooth running printing company.
Management information soft-ware for the packaging industry is intelligent, responsive and powerful. Integrated software provides a powerful offer, order instructions, stock control and an invoicing module. We have already had great success in the flexible packaging, folding carton and direct mail market, where margins have considerably been improved.
LIFT & TILT UNITS
There is always room for improvement in the internal logistics of a company. Think about how many times a product is grabbed, moved, lifted and put down again. And this is often unnecessarily heavy work done by man and takes up a lot of time. Deltapak offers a series of roll lifts and tilts that are modular in construction, but can always be customised.
In every company that processes rolls you can find ancient and dangerous core cutters that can be replaced by new safe and efficient ones. Through careful production planning, only the required amount of cores will be cut. As the machine cuts, the operator can walk away until all the complete parent core has been cut. The stock can then quickly be refilled as needed.
SLEEVE STORAGE SYSTEMS
As a company progresses, more and more tools can be roaming around, without having a fixed or designated area storage place. A warehouse with movable sections offers the solution: the sleeves are stored together and can easily be called up. The system can be designed according to the space available. Can you guess how much searching time (and annoyance) it will save you?
