Heidelberg shows how to improve performance
December 9, 2009 by Lyndon
Heidelberg’s managing director, George Clarke, hosted a two day industry event on the 18th and 19th of November. The event focused on how to maximise profits by improving press performance. Heidelberg’s marketing manager said:
‘’We have very important messages for participating printers at this event’’
Visitors attending the event were able to see demonstrations of several different Heidelberg presses, always good for printers who tend to like a more hands on approach.
Heidelberg identified the main issues as being how to get:
‘’more out of a printer’s management information system, how to harness ISO12647 to the mutual benefit of the printer and customer, and how ink coatings and other pressroom chemicals can affect job costs’’
These issues are increasingly important in this tough economic climate, especially for print companies around large conurbations like Greater Manchester. For example, consider Altrincham in Cheshire. A printing company in Altrincham running Heidelberg presses will surely be interested in greater efficiencies which could improve profit.
Heidelberg will host new events in 2010. If you are a large print company or a small print company in Altrincham it may be beneficial to your company to attend such an event and consider first hand what very important messages Heidelberg are passing on.
Watch out for 2010 printing industry events and see if Heidelberg is planning any in your area. If you can’t find any in your area then consider travelling to one anyway. The efficiencies gained form attending the event should more than cover the costs.
