Print speed is just one factor in a larger ecosystem
Wide-format and display graphics providers are constantly challenged by the need to get jobs on and off press as quickly as possible, and are always on the lookout for ways of speeding up the process. The speed of the printer itself is the most conspicuous—and highly touted by equipment manufacturers—factor, but other steps in the process can impede overall productivity. When it comes to flatbed wide-format printing, board loading in particular can be a major bottleneck.
A new WhatTheyThink white paper sponsored by Canon Solutions America—Beyond the Print Engine: What Is Productivity?—looks at the various aspects of flatbed wide-format productivity, specifically focusing on board loading. Automation options, such as robotics, have started to appear, but one approach—Canon’s FLOW technology—provides a unique strategy for boosting flatbed printer board loading.
In this white paper, you’ll learn:
- What are the steps involved in flatbed board loading and how do they impact productivity?
- What solutions exist for improving the board loading process?
- What is Canon FLOW technology and what speed improvements can it provide?
