INDUSTRIAL PROJECTS

“NOISE MITIGATION & FREQUENT STOPPAGES.” SHAKTI PRINTERS.

• Due to excess atmospheric heat, frequent stops of air compressor of screen-printing process occurred and resulted in increased waste and low production rates. The enclosed and air-conditioned chamber reduced compressor temperature resulting in reduced number of stops and increased productivity by 10%.

“IMPROVED WEB-LEADING ON GEOMAN.” THE TIMES OF INDIA.

• All print towers were connected via horizontal and vertical shafts in Geoman. To reduce waste with successive webs, we implemented the individual tower clutching/web leading method, thereby improved product loading, which saved $25K per year in paper and electricity costs.

“START-UP WASTE REDUCTION, PRE-INKING FOUNTAIN ROLLER.” TIMES OF INDIA.

• Every edition contained unprinted white waste, so we modified the old sequence and created a pre-inking sequence to reduce that waste. Putting impression rollers ON at a low speed 0 – 4000 cph, we minimized the gap between water and the ink touching plate cylinder and activation of inking roller early to facilitate ink charging. Another product made as a fountain roller was already inked in restart sequence.

“PARALLEL PRINTING OF TWO EDITIONS.” TIMES OF INDIA.

• We achieved printing two editions simultaneously in the same time it would take to print one edition without hampering output time.
