Waste elimination through value stream optimization
The printing and packaging industry is facing many challenges due to war in Ukraine. The prices of raw materials keep increasing, while there are supply chain issues and extended delivery times.
Now more than ever, the elimination of waste in every step of the workflow is a necessity.
At AV Flexologic we incorporated the principles of lean manufacturing in all our processes to respond and adapt to any industry challenges. Throughout the years of our lean journey, we developed a waste-free value stream for our customers to help them maximize the efficiency of their workflow.
CURRENT VALUE STREAM
The current value stream uses an example of a pre-press department with 3 traditional mounters with 3 operators and 3 shifts. Due to manual plate mounting, there are some reworks that need to be made and the accuracy of the mounting is not guaranteed.
FUTURE VALUE STREAM WITH AUTOMATIC MOUNTING
The future value stream is AV Flexologic’s optimized workflow, which includes 3rd Generation Automatic Mounting to eliminate waste and reworks, while the mounting accuracy is guaranteed! Supporting equipment and extras on the mounter offer a streamlined workflow that saves time and costs.
3rd GENERATION AUTOMATIC MOUNTING
AUTOMATIC MOUNTING ADVANTAGES
- Elimination of press downtime due to mounting mistakes
- Higher productivity – less operator time required per mounted plate
- Faster press start-up – reduction in changeover times and waste material
- Detailed Quality Control and Reporting with Image Recognition
- Streamlined workflow
- Phenomenal consistency
