Nowadays, there is nothing worse than after all that work running film trials the machine doesn’t work. Furthermore, we spend endless hours confirming packaging requirements, holding force and stability settings. Problems can occur with the number of revolutions on both bottom and top of packaging configuration. Also, to come back a few hours later to find changed settings.
Locking off settings is essential. We don’t mean writing settings with a permanent marker inside the mainframe cabinet. We mean physically lock them off, disable, remove from unwarranted use.
Also, we would suggest a physical box padlocked fitted over Control Panel. Hence, leaving any reset or changing to be conducted by line managers or house engineers alike. All this good work can be undermined by the wrong fingers doing the wrong thing.
Having been successful running on our range of high-performance films, we work with in-house engineers in fine tuning settings to compliment the customers Pack. We emphasise performance to reduce consumption and cost to the end-user.
