Rotary Technologies, a manufacturer of web infeed tension and reregister systems, has launched a materials waste calculator at its website: www.rotarytechnologies.com/roi.html. The calculator is a tool for printers wishing to know wasted material costs due to misregistration on press stops and starts.
“These hidden costs may be surprising and may not be considered when quoting a customer, or taken into account when evaluating performance,” says Joe Nicholson, president of Rotary Techologies, Orlando, FL, USA. “Printers using the calculator can enter their own figures and gain valuable insight into their operations.”
Rotary Technologies’ equipment aims to reduce material waste and improve press registration with its Servo 3000 Infeed and Reregister System.
