March 12, 2004 -- MAN Roland’s 1000th PECOM system goes to France, to the D&G Deschamps printing company, founded in 1905. It is located in Tourcoing in France’s northern megalopolis of Lille-Roubaix-Tourcoing and operates mainly in the commercial printing segment. With a staff of 43 and a turnover of EUR 6.1 million, the company serves long-year regional and Paris customers with, for example, mail-order catalogues and labels.
The company recently invested in a four-colour ROLAND 700 with APL automatic plate loading and cylinder washing device. With its new press, the management intends to develop business in new market segments. To be prepared for future requirements, it also invested in PECOM.
MAN Roland’s Press Management System PECOM is known as the system for full networking of printing operations, for making all data readily available as needed, and for saving a lot of time. Looking back on some months of production experience with PECOM, Production Manager Christophe Deschamps expresses satisfaction with the system because it saves precious minutes in each makeready operation, which increases press availability and allows more jobs to be produced. The information about inking data is accurate, enabling waste cutting and quicker achievement of the first good sheet.
Asked why they chose PECOM, General Manager Jean-Charles Quensierre and Christophe Deschamps are of one opinion: “With PECOM we go flat out.” Most important of all it saves their company a great deal of time in press preparation and makeready. On top, it is an investment in the future: D&G Deschamps will be able to grow in capacity and to answer every demand of its customers in the years to come - in quality, quantity and productivity.
