White Paper On Post-Press Performance

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

(January 13, 2009) Muller Martini, the world leader in print finishing innovation, has created an informative white paper that provides strategies for getting the most out of automated finishing technology.  The document, entitled Optimizing Post-Press Performance, can be ordered by calling 1-888-2-Muller ext 1329.

Included in the white paper are valuable insights, techniques and diagrams explaining how print production operations can maximize the investments they make in Muller Martini's newest generation of post-press machines.  These machines offer the profit-enhancing benefits of automated machine set-ups, high operating speeds and a full range of auxiliary equipment to minimize staffing by automating signature feeding and book stacking. The integration with a company wide, integrated, JDF/JMF workflow can further increase productivity when properly implemented.

"Today's post-press technology enables set-ups to be completed in minutes rather than hours...and this is just one example of how the newest machines can increase productivity," states Peter Doyle, Muller Martini Corporate Integration and Workflow Manager and the author of the white paper.  "To realize the full advantages of the latest high-speed automated machines, printers and binderies need to take a systematic approach to improving their entire workflow through the post press department.  This white paper provides a blueprint for maximizing and harmonize the entire printing process."

Among the specific topics covered in the document are: Workflow and Material Handling; Cost of Downtime Analysis; Benchmarking; Creating Realistic Goals; Operator Expectations; Performance Metrics; Make-Ready Procedures; JDF/JMF Integration; and Preventative Maintenance.  "In my opinion, operations can save a hour in machine down time for every minute of job planning that they invest in creating good work order/job ticket instructions.   Our white paper is a comprehensive planning and reference tool specifically written to assist operations in working smarter not harder in order to achieve greater profits," continues Mr. Doyle.

In addition to authoring the Optimizing Post-Press Performance white paper, Peter Doyle has written a book entitled Benchmarking the Bindery (Kennet Publishing) and has also written numerous articles for various trade publications.  Mr. Doyle has more than 28 years of industry background and is a frequent presenter at industry shows, conventions and conferences.
