Automated cleaning of press parts is the smart way to make sure you have consistent high output from your printing machine and the highest possible printing quality. It does not matter whether you clean with solvents, non-flammable liquids or alkaline liquids you get the same high results every time.
Here are the benefits from automated cleaning
1. Improve overall production quality
When you implement automated cleaning into your production you significantly increase the overall cleanliness of your workplace. However, the most important thing is that you reduce the number of do-over printing jobs you have in your production, your print quality improves, and you will potentially be able to scale up your production to do even more printing jobs.
The printing machinery you have invested in has certain numbers that you bought into, amongst other printing speed time to set up and quality etc. none of those can on day-to-day basis be reached if you run the operation based on manual cleaning.
2. Reduced downtime
Downtime is bad for business. One thing is that the productions halts, because of a flaw or failure - the worst thing is that you must spend valuable time finding, where the fault is and then most of the time start all over again on your project.
With an automated cleaning machine for your press parts, you make sure that your printing machine is always clean and is always ready to do your next printing job – and do it well.
3. Prolong the lifetime of printing machine
Your printing machine is the heart of your production. It is the main thing that makes you money, but do you know what else makes you money? Proper cleaning.
Proper cleaning of you printing machine prolongs its lifetime and you get more in return on your investment and fewer do-over jobs, because you have a clean machine that does not affect your printing job.
4. Improve your HSE (Health and safety environment)
Manual cleaning of your press parts is a slow and tedious process that takes a lot of manpower. But what is even worse is the effect manual cleaning has on the cleaner’s health.
Research show that a person that does manual cleaning is more likely to get sick and leave their position. Even if you want to do it right, setting up a manual cleaning operation without any health hazards is challenging.
Implementing automated cleaning significantly increases the overall health and safety of your employees and they are more likely to remain in their job for longer, which means you can concentrate on more important matters, than rehiring for the same position repeatedly.
5. Free up production space
Manual cleaning takes up a lot of space. You need space for all the equipment, solvents, and workers. Then you also need a place to dry all your press part and lastly you need a place to store the used material safely. With an automated cleaning machine, you immediately reduce the amount of space you need.
When you switch to automated cleaning you can create a new unique workflow for your production, where you bring the cleaning closer to the printing machine and in return reduce the time it takes to clean your machine even more.
