Keeping Ahead Of Competition By Integrating Firm Wide Printing

it is in 2013 that digital wide format print was identified two be very vibrant in the print market. Three groups are driving this growth: conventional sign shops and screen printers adding or switching to digital printing methods; existing wide-format users wanting to increase capacity or improve quality and/or productivity to meet customer demand; and commercial offset printers or prepress specialists who are keen to capture a larger proportion of their customers’ print spend.

in this kind of print there is a wide rate of technological development. This has therefore resulted into wide opportunities for market as new ways of package prototyping as well as fabric printing emerge each day.

While the capabilities of individual wide-format printers continue to evolve apace in terms of resolution, colour gamut, speed of production and range of supported substrates, the integration of these devices into both the production workflow and the wider environment of their owners’ businesses has largely been neglected.

The wide format printers are operated in isolation as compared to all the other kinds of ERP systems. Basically this happens because the customers do not trust automation as well as lack the interest and awareness towards them.

The printing cost is only a small amount of cost to the total cost incurred when it comes to wide format printing as its finishing are generally very elaborate. Wide format printing most of the time happen as a one time job that requires a lot of time management, elaborate finishing as well as shipping and creative inputs. Most of the producers of wide format print are very reluctant in accepting automation as the norm of this kind of jobs is customerization.

This manual approach can lead to inefficiencies in production management, and may result in material wastage and quality inconsistencies both between devices and over time. The other problem is associated with the inability to load balanced work across machines leading some machines being left idle.

Every point at which manual processes occur is a point at which costs can rapidly be added and yet these costs are often unaccounted. Job costing models based on ‘per square metre’ pricing can lead to work being done at a loss, especially where time spent on file preparation before output is not recorded. The manual method mainly does not provide all the relevant information and therefore as there are no bottle necks already in place, it means that some costs that have already been incurred will be left unaccounted for.

The wide format printer will be crowded very soon and this will create awn increase pressure to offset the extra costs.
