Your Problem … Short Runs & Long Set-up Times
Emphasis on “Lean Manufacturing” and “Just-In-Time” procurement are driving shorter and shorter run lengths. Runs currently average just over 1,000 – down from over 5,000 in 1999.
And as you strive to produce higher quality, dimensionally accurate, multicolor boxes on your existing machine, Longer Set-up Times are the result – now pushing almost 50 minutes.
Ignoring this problem guarantees lost profits.
