Are you wasting valuable time and manpower when you have the right technology to use at your disposal?

In the pictures below, I use street sweeping as an example of using manpower versus equipment to finish a job. If you look at the pictures, you will notice that the machine is getting the job done much quicker than the three men sweeping by hand. This technology will most likely finish a whole city block while the three men are still trying to finish one intersection.

Like the street sweepers in the picture, your Heidelberg offset printing press with its automated modular blanket and impression cylinder wash-up devices put technology to work with faster and more complete cylinder washing than using manpower alone.

If you’re doing a manual wash-up on your press, you could expect it to take 4 to 6 minutes per unit. If you want to complete all units on your press, it could take up to 24 to 36 minutes. However, if one invests in Modular Blanket and Impression Cylinder Wash-Up Devices, you can expect this to take only 3 to 5 minutes to wash ALL of the units or any sequence of blankets with auto wash. A 87.5% reduction in wash-up time!

Using the Modular Blanket and Impression Cylinder Wash-Up Device gives your employees more time to produce sellable work. This will lead to your business being more productive and increasing your output.
