Understanding true productivity.
Whitepaper & reports.
In today's ultra-competitive environment, most printers are looking to boost profits by minimizing spending on capital equipment and press supplies. What many don't realize, though, is that their profit is actually directly linked to the cost it takes to produce each finished sheet.
A Smithers Pira study, focusing on used machines under 10 years old, commissioned by Heidelberg found that despite advertising similar specifications, not all presses produce the same net output year after year. In fact, manufacturers that offer lower equipment prices often do not deliver enough net output to justify their lower price — meaning their cost per sheet is actually higher than a more productive but expensive machine.
