Energy Efficiency in the Printing Industry

Energy Efficiency in the Printing Industry

Examine the practical terms and problems of precise assessment when it comes to power usage.

The relevance of energy efficiency is not new in any industry that exists on the planet, but practices and associated principles certainly vary from country to country, with some rating excessive power usage far higher on their agendas for manufacturing across all sectors. Without a doubt, there are areas involving print where the cost of electricity – and its associated waste – tends to lack importance and rate fairly low on the list of criteria for businesses involved in heavy duty processes and production methodologies. But, regardless of the environmental principles that encompass power issues, the sheer cost and unnecessary redundancy that are all too easily generated should be viewed as detrimental to the way in which companies of all sizes operate today. Without clear benchmarks and auditing capabilities that apply nation by nation, even universally, monitoring is not a simple task and is impossible to impose. This is because there are so many variables that might or might not be employed, according to levels of importance, by different types of PSPs worldwide.

Consistency, price & support win Nazdar & QPS customer loyalty

Consistency, price & support win Nazdar & QPS customer loyalty

Marshall Signs, one of the first UK-based print businesses to try Nazdar 702 series UV inkjet inks, remains a very satisfied customer a number of months on.
Released in autumn 2015, the Nazdar 702 series inkset has been developed by Nazdar Ink Technologies as a high-quality, affordable alternative to OEM inks for Océ Arizona printers. As Nazdar's first entry into the plug-and-play UV inkjet market, the inks offer a seamless conversion process with excellent colour and chemical compatibility.
They are also extremely reliable and consistent with vibrant results, as Nottingham-based Marshall Signs discovered at the end of last year. The health and safety sign specialist was running a second-hand Océ Arizona 250 GT with alternative inks from a different supplier, but was waiting for the availability of the Nazdar 702 series.

Efficient Signmaking for Small Shops and One-Man Armies

Efficient Signmaking for Small Shops and One-Man Armies

I am not really a one-man army, since we normally employ over a dozen full- and part-time employees at our two companies located across the highway from each other. But, when I go back through my files it is interesting how many sign fabrication jobs I tackle personally and get done with very little help from the crew. And to be honest, I don’t mind flying solo at all.

In fact, for quite a while I had two kids off to college, and working a whole lot of overtime seemed the only way to protect what retirement savings I had. Then, custom sign projects became my regular Saturday activity. This is often still the case today, because when I am not interrupted 30 times a day by phone calls, and customers who want to see the boss, I can actually get a whole lot done and I enjoy the work a lot.

This month I’d like to look at a couple of the recent jobs that were basically created one-man-army style, and go over some of the fabrication techniques that make these jobs make sense and make money, too.

Nazdar Tech Tip - S.A.F.E

When determining the best ink for any application, the 4 most important factors to consider are what is being printed on, what type of machine is being used, post-printing processes, and what the ink will be exposed to upon use. These factors can be summed up with the acronym S.A.F.E: Substrate, Application, Finishing, End use.
