September 2007 -- Riverside, CA: Socal Printing installs CC1 eXaminer Automatic Register Control; Realizes Immediate Waste Savings Benefits
CC1, Inc. of Portsmouth, New Hampshire announces that Socal Printing in Riverside, CA recently installed its eXaminer Automatic Register Control on six (6) Tensor 1400 4-highs.
Pat McLemore, Socal Production Manager, says of the installation, "I was impressed with the ease of installation, and the start-up and training have been very thorough. Our press operators have found the eXaminer to be easy to use and the interface very user-friendly".
With Socal's original purchase of the eXaminer based on projected waste savings, McLemore goes on to say, "The ROI of the eXaminer was calculated at 19% savings; our actual July savings came in at 30%. I expect those numbers to continue to rise as my operators get even more proficient on the system."
In addition to actual waste savings, the eXaminer provides tangible benefits in other areas of the newsprint production arena. McLemore adds "Now that we have the eXaminer as our dedicated register control, time has been freed up for our operators to focus on other areas such as color."
"We are pleased with the results at Socal," indicates Roger Mattila, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CC1. "The entire process at this site has been one of mutual cooperation and we look forward to our continued partnership."
CC1's eXaminer is uniquely designed utilizing state-of-the-art digital register control technology to handle the specific challenges and requirements of the newsprint environment. In addition to establishing initial register simultaneously on all web leads, allowing for significant start-up waste reduction, the eXaminer provides documented improvements in quality consistency throughout the run. For press lines requiring motorization, CC1 offers a complete line of register motorization packages.
