Koenig & Bauer (UK) has introduced ‘Gold Star Roller Service’, a roller service initiative to help printers improve press performance and maintain print quality.
The company identified that a press with rollers in poor condition or incorrectly set can cause major production and quality problems for printers. Resolving these problems can be time consuming and requires an identical skill level across all press crews.
To overcome these issues and assist its customers, the ‘Gold Star Roller Service’ sees each set of rollers supplied by Koenig & Bauer accompanied by an expert visit to professionally fit and set rollers. During the visit, the Koenig & Bauer expert will also provide guidance on general roller care and best practice to ensure the rollers remain in peak condition.
Koenig & Bauer identified the benefits of the service as:
- Press rollers fitted and set correctly first time, every time;
- Unplanned downtime reduced;
- Consumable costs reduced;
- Quality increased; and
- Roller maintenance scheduled to avoid peak production times.
Bespoke packages can be arranged for individual units or a complete press.
