Difference between ‘Vision’ and ‘Sight’ There is a lot of difference between vision and sight. Often people misunderstand that these can be invariably used. A person who is visually impaired may have a vision. But its not necessary that a person with sight would have a vision too. This year, let’s pray and strive towards aquiring a vision. The year bygone has brought in lot of disruption. The economy saw two of the biggest moves from the present Union Government. In fact, the print media faced one of the biggest brunts. A 30% cut in advertising budgets saw over 1500 journalist getting a pink slip. Ironically, while these very journalists could write volumes on why startups are unethical in cutting staff, there was no murmur from any media when they were forced to take the decision. But then, in the last two months, we hear that revival has already begun. So it calls for inspriing stories to help us get back in form. In this issue, we continue to present you with stories that will educate you, inspire you, and maybe give you the required nudge to adapt to change. JN Arora’s Vimles Jain undoubtedly gives the most candid interviews of his time talking about history, failures and the future. We also have in this issue, snippets from a recent paper on thermoelectric screen printing,. In our guest column, we discuss how to select the right laminator, and Simon gives his take on the digital foiling machines. And wrapping it off with few lines by Maya Angelou, one of the most celebrated American poets:

Marabu to unveil new range of printing inks at FESPA 2017 Ink manufacturer Marabu is set to present its latest range of inks for screen, digital and pad printing at FESPA 2017, from May 8-12 at the Hamburg Messe, Germany. Marabu will present a completely new range of inks which includes advancements in ink technology for the efficient production of touch screens, and as well as recent additions to its portfolio, such as the Mara Jet DISX and DI-MS digital ink lines. A further highlight is the brand-new Ultra Pack UVFP system for screen printing, a UVcurable, low-migration system for food packaging. There is also a pioneering product for pad printing: Tampa Tex TPX, with a remarkable range of applications.

“At FESPA 2017, we will be showcasing two completely new and user-friendly eco-solventbased whites of the ink systems Mara Jet DI-SX and DI-MS.” commented Marabu. “The special feature of the whites is the high opacity and the excellent chemical and mechanical resistance. A further strength with the highly advanced formulations is that neither of the inks forms sediment while in the printer, ensuring seamless production processes.” Also on display at FESPA 2017 will be the new Texa Jet DX-DTE digital printing ink based on pigmented resin that boasts all the major advantages of transfer technology. In addition, the Screen Truepress Jet W3200 UV II, suitable for graphics, will be showcased, as well as the Spyder Xi digital printer from Inca Digital. The company will also present the Tampa Glass TPGL developed on the basis of state-of-the-art raw materials specifically for pad printing

decorations on 3D objects. It offers ease of use, brilliant results, and exceptionally high chemical and mechanical resistance. This ink is suitable for glass and ceramic items, metals, chrome-plated and varnished substrates, and thermosetting plastics. Finally, the company will show the Mara Shield UV-CGL system that offers brilliant colours, and dries quickly for efficient, reliable production processes. These liquid coatings can also be employed to produce opaque blocking layer for digital wall prints, for interior wall panels, kitchen work surfaces and splashbacks, and glass doors. “FESPA 2017 provides a perfect platform for print professionals to exchange information and insights. Marabu will be amongst the exhibitors to present its new product portfolio and to get in touch with prospective clients. The popular trade show is going to be a perfect place to get into deeper discussions with the experts, so no one should miss it,” the company concluded.

Kodak calls off sale of prosper inkjet business Ink Eastman Kodak Company today announced it will retain its PROSPER inkjet business. The decision was made following in-depth management review of business operations and multiple discussions with prospective buyers. “This is a pragmatic decision given the improvements in the business and the offers received,” said Jeff Clarke, Kodak Chief Executive Officer. “PROSPER performed well in 2016 with a 40 percent increase in annuity sales for the full year. We expect our


| SCREENTEX | February - March 2017

Enterprise Inkjet Systems Division (EISD) to be profitable this year, including our next-generation Ultrastream investment.” Kodak will continue to invest in its Ultrastream program and has entered into letters of intent with partners which will create new applications that drive market demand for the technology. Kodak will begin delivering Ultrastream evaluation kits to 17 companies, including Fuji Kikai, GOSS China, Matti, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Printing & Packaging Machinery

(MHI-PPM) and Uteco, to explore the integration of Ultrastream into their future printing solutions. Kodak expects products built on Ultrastream technology to go to market in 2019. Kodak will recast financial results to reclassify PROSPER into continuing operations of the company within the Enterprise Inkjet Systems Division. Kodak has been accounting for PROSPER in discontinued operations as an asset available for sale and will provide an update of this reclassification on its next quarterly earnings call.


EFI’s launches VUTEk 3r and 5r Printers Electronics For Imaging has launched two new UV LED inkjet printers offering one of the fastest throughputs available in their product class. The EFI VUTEk 5r and VUTEk 3r printers are two of the new technologies that EFI is discussing with customers at upcoming tradeshows. The new printers are the most technically advanced LED roll-to-roll printers on the market.

The printers are equipped with a powerful LED curing technology that delivers both cost savings and environmental benefits. It offers resolutions up to 1200 dpi and comes with the native EFI UItraDrop Technology sevenpicolitre printheads with true multi-drop. It also has a unique colour distribution algorithm that provides superior economic advantages with ink usage, with a single litre of ink covering up to 1,600 square feet, on average, across all print modes. The 3-meter-wide 3r model offers print speeds up to 3,715 square feet per hour, and the 5-meter 5r model offering speeds up to 4,896 square feet per hour.

Inline roll-to-sheet cutting, slitters and a sheet collector kit are key additions that help users improve throughput by reducing or eliminating altogether the need to handle printed jobs on separate finishing tables. The VUTEk 3r and 5r also offer optional features for automated double-sided backlit and blockout printing; a mobile app for remote printer monitoring; multi-layer white ink imaging; additional light colours for extended-gamut imaging and more. Strong initial demand for the 3r and 5r printers has resulted in early installations to customers in North America, Europe and the Middle East who wanted to replace slower, less-efficient, roll-to-roll printers.

Epson rallies behind PaperLab; claims market worth €2 bn Epson has developed what they call “the first ever in-office paper recycling machine”, which takes used documents and turns them into clean, white, blank sheets, in just 3 minutes. The PaperLab, which Epson claim will “revolutionise recycling” is capable of reusing 14 sheets of A4 paper per minute, meaning 6,720 sheets could be produced in a regular eight hour day. It can also produce different kinds of paper, A3 sheets, thick paper for business cards, coloured paper and even scented paper. The machine looks like a large photocopier and pulverises printed sheets into individual fibres using a process Epson calls defibrating. The process removes inkjet inks and toners, reducing the printed

sheets to their naked paper fibres. Water consumption is also minimal and the technology incidentally saves the trouble of shredding documents. There is a considerable carbon footprint attached to the shredding process, which generally involves secure and expensive transport to dedicated offsite shredding facilities. The recycled material is turned into new sheets of paper through the addition of a special binder and a little water. The binder adds strength and chemicals and can also colour the sheets or enhance their whiteness. The mix is pressed and calendared to produce new sheets, and can even be scented. PaperLab uses far less water than conventional papermaking and although it is initially intended for office environments, the

technology can be scaled up. Minoru Usui, Epson’s global president says that PaperLab will transform workplace behaviours and practices. “PaperLab can recycle waste paper in the office using a dry process, therefore creating an office ‘eco-system’ that reduces CO2 emissions, increases savings on collection, disposal and logistics, ensures secure disposal of confidential documents and saves water, which is used in huge volumes in traditional recycling processes.” It takes about three minutes for PaperLab to produce its first new sheet of paper once the machine is loaded with waste. The machine can also produce A3 sheets and in a variety of weights from office sheets to business card stock. Epson reckon it will take a year or so to ready PaperLab for the commercial market, a market they estimate to be worth €2 billion.

FESPA announces 2017 Awards shortlist The expert judging panel of the FESPA Awards 2017 has announced its shortlist hailing the innovation, high-quality and creativity of this year’s entries. Hundreds of entries were submitted for this year’s FESPA Awards. And although the final winner will not be announced until May 10 at the FESPA’s Dinner Gala in Hamburg, Germany, recently there was a small group of experts that were very busy carefully studying each piece of work and having the tough task of picking out the best projects. Graeme Richardson Locke, sales and operations

director at Vektor, who served as a judge for this year’s FESPA Awards commented: “As so many submissions were of such a high quality it made for a very difficult job for the judging panel to differentiate on technical execution alone. Fortunately with a range of criteria to be scored we managed in all cases to reach a consensus without too much argument.” “With 14 categories and hundreds of entries the sheer volume of entries to be evaluated was challenging we certainly needed the two full days to review everything. Even with more than 30 years of printing experience the scope of techniques employed presents difficulty in appreciating the methods used.”

The judges, who FESPA handpicked based on their specialist knowledge and experience within their own print fields, highlighted the amazing range of creative applications of both, screen and wide format digital print, seen in the entries. Expanding on the importance of the Awards not only to entrants but also to the wider industry, Graeme said that they can help companies from around the world gain valuable promotion, with the global market looking to the Awards to see the best in print talent. All the shortlisted entries for each category are being profiled on the FESPA Awards website so their projects and techniques can be shared with the rest of the sector.

Canon launches UV gel wide-format printer Océ Colorado 1640 Canon has announced its long-anticipated UV gel wideformat printer, the Océ Colorado 1640, a 64-inch roll-to-roll printer. Designed for large-format graphic-arts and print providers, the Océ Colorado 1640 is designed for producing indoor and outdoor graphics, including roll-to-roll signage and displays. The company claims that customers will be able to easily handle peak periods with fully automated media loading of multiple online rolls, confidently print unattended with on-the-fly quality assurance, produce instantly cured prints on a wide variety of media including heat sensitive media, and help cut expenses with low operating costs.


| SCREENTEX | February - March 2017

At the heart of the new Océ Colorado 1640 is Canon’s recently announced UV-gel technology. This technology combines a new UV curable ink that gels immediately on contact with the media, with Canon’s latestgeneration piezoelectric printhead technology. The system uses acoustic sampling to monitor nozzle performance on-the-fly, whilst the LED UV curing system works without applying any heat to the substrates meaning ultra-thin and heat-sensitive media are suitable. The LED UV curing system operates independently from the printing system, which the company said ensured identical jetting to curing for every droplet and gave better control of accuracy and size. The Océ Colorado 1640

features a heavy-duty drawer mechanism that holds up to two rolls of media at one time, each weighing up to 110 lbs. The two rolls can be of the same media type and size or different media, and once initialized, the print engine can switch jobs between rolls without operator assistance. If an unknown media is loaded, the printer will automatically measure its thickness and adjust the print gap accordingly. This information is then stored in the media library along with other media parameters so that the next time this type of media is loaded, the printer knows exactly how to handle it. The UVgel printheads also incorporate patented continuous nozzle monitoring to detect and correct any underperforming nozzles.




Roland DG releases new ErgoSoft Roland edition 2 RIP Roland DG has announced that ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software will now be available for its Texart dye sublimation transfer printers. Existing software and print settings can still be used after updating to the ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2, which has more than 40 new features/enhancements. A new dithering method increases rasterisation speed and improves dot placement accuracy resulting in 40% faster RIP times and smoother gradients. ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 also includes up to eight simultaneous RIP servers to drastically reduce processing time.

Also included, the Hot Folder feature makes batch printing of images with the same specific print settings easier to further enhance printing efficiency. Image Add-Ons functions support several new effects such as barcodes, rulers and drill holes. Multiple effects can also be applied to a single set of data. Specific editing functions support file formats that are commonly used for textile printing. The ‘Step and Repeat’ feature to create flawless repeating textile patterns from a single image is now available for PDF and EPS file formats. The ‘Color Replacement’ feature for creating multiple colour variations is also now available for TIFF and PSD file

formats. Variable data printing is now included as standard. Roland DG product manager Hirotoshi Naruse. said, “In response, we launched the Texart brand in 2014 exclusively for use in digital textile printing with a firm commitment to deliver exceptional value to this market now and in the future.” The company currently offers two Texart 64 inch (1625 mm) models. For fast, high volume printing with dual staggered printheads to maximise productivity, the XT-640 is built for continuous production on long print runs. The RT-640 is designed to provide superb quality, productivity and value with ease of operation that will please both experienced operators and beginners.

Mimaki launches hybrid TX300P-1800 range The Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-to-textile printers have been updated to simultaneously load both textile pigment and sublimation dye inks for flexible textile printing. This enables the use of a single printer to print directly on a wide range of textiles without the need to change out ink systems. “Recently, in the textile and apparel markets, quick deliveries and short, customised production are becoming increasingly important. This new system is specifically designed to address this need for costeffective short run printing of textiles for products or samples,” said


| SCREENTEX | February - March 2017

Mimaki Europe general manager Ronald van den Broek. “It means that producers can switch fabric types quickly and easily, selecting the appropriate ink system for each fabric. And these inks do not require usage of water or steaming in the posttreatment process, making them environmentally sustainable as well.” Mimaki offers five different ink types for textile printing, including sublimation dye ink, dispersion dye ink, textile pigment ink, reactive dye ink and acid dye ink. In the normal course of operation, one ink per printer must be selected. But now textile producers will be able to use the two most popular ink types in one single printer. The Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-totextile printers will be able

to simultaneously load TP400 textile pigment ink for cotton and hemp materials as well as Sb420 sublimation dye ink for polyester material without changing inksets for each run. Since neither ink type generally requires steaming or washing in the post-treatment process, there is no need for a large space, a huge quantity of water, or special expertise in handling the printed fabric. All that is required is the printer and colour fixing equipment, making these entrylevel printers suitable for use by designers, fabric workshops, and educational and research institutions. The hybrid ink system for the Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-to-textile printers will be commercially available in summer 2017.

Affordable foiling without dies By Simon Eccles

Metallics, foils and raised imaging effects are starting to appear for digital production, with benefits of low setup costs, short runs and variability. Simon Eccles looks at what’s here and what’s coming. Eye-catching metallic effects are one of the latest beneficiaries of the digital revolution in print.


| SCREENTEX | February - March 2017

You can now use ordinary digital printers and laminators to apply standard spot or pattern foil that adhere to a digitally printed pattern image. This brings the usual digital benefits of easy artwork, nomake-ready, no waiting, economic short runs, one-offs or variable data between copies. Most importantly, there’s no need for conventional metal dies, which take time to order in, cost money and, though they can be re-used, need setting up every time. While metallic inks have been available on a few large format eco-solvent inkjets since about 2010, the limitations on particle sizes through inkjet nozzles means that their reflectance isn’t anything like as bright as a true metallic foil. Foiling allows the creation of a range of effects that embellish print. It means the application of a thin layer of decorative material that might be a mirror finish metal foil but can also be a diffraction or

holographic effect. It can also be a plain colour that’s difficult to achieve with standard printing colours (fluorescents or pearl effects for instance). Apart from the visual attraction of foils, there’s also a security aspect. They are almost impossible to scan or photograph properly, which helps to protect counterfeiting by simple copying, and creating them requires relatively specialist equipment and consumables, which again deters casual counterfeiters. In fact, the first idea for using foils with laser printers was apparently originated by security printer Harrisons in the UK. Foil is supplied on a roll of plastic carrier film in a range of widths (the narrowest rolls are usually called ribbons). When the foil-carrying film is pressed onto the receiving medium, the thin foil layer detaches from the carrier film and adheres to the target area. “Hot foil” has a layer of heat-activated adhesive and was originally developed for heated metal dies, while “cold foil” has no adhesive and relies on a sticky ink or coating that is applied separately to the target media. Applying an overall foil to media using a laminator is nothing new. It’s how off-the-shelf metallised papers and boards are made in the first place. You can apply these to your own media with a standard laminator. What’s relatively new is the ability to use an almost standard laminator to apply a spot foil that only adheres to printed shapes and letters. Mostly this is done by adding a new feeder attachment for hot foil that then goes through the

GUEST COLUMN standard heated pressure rollers of the laminator to activate the adhesive and transfer the effect layer onto the receiving substrate. The laminator can still be used for normal film application too. With hot foil the effect works by controlling the temperature of the laminator so that a layer of ink (usually black as it absorbs most heat) heats up enough to activate the adhesive, but the underlying substrate doesn’t. Then when the foil is pressed onto the medium, the adhesive is only activated by the hot ink/toner area, and the foil peels off. Digital printing means that every image can be different. If you want an overall foil laminate you simply print solid black over the whole thing. Entry level foiling At the very basic level you can buy rolls of foil from hobby suppliers that will work with low cost desktop laminating and encapsulating machines, which are commonly available for a few tens of euros in widths up to 300 mm or so. If you only need a few (and small) foiled copies at a time, it’s worth exploring the market that way with very little outlay, though user reports suggest that dedicated heat-foiling machines work best and the foil itself works out quite expensive this way. The entry point for professional digital foiling would be something like the small US built FoilTech hand and autoloading machines, for widths up to 340 mm. In the UK and parts of Europe these are sold by Caslon, with UK prices ranging from around €2,300 to €5,000. Japanese company Uchida U-Coater system is similar to Caslon’s but has a slightly different transfer principle, it claims. It

says it partly melts the toner surface, applies the foil and then burnishes it for a very smooth finish. A U-Coater costs about €4,000 and is manually fed with sheets up to 320 x 600 mm. A fully automatic version is planned for about €12,000. Modified laminators Korean laminator maker GMP was one of the first companies to adapt the idea for a commercial laminator with a process it calls ‘sleeking.’ You can print black dry toner or HP Indigo ink over offset print and the foil only adheres to the digital image. You can also laminate the print, print a toner image onto that, and foil over that. Alternatively, you can print the job first with any process (analogue or digital, full-colour if needed), then laminate GMP’s special toner-receptive film over the whole sheet, which protects the initial image. Then you run the laminated sheets through a toner press to add a foil-receptive image, and finally run them back through the Sleeking laminator to apply the foil. GMP’s Sleeking process is available on most of its current laminators, with the widest currently being the roll fed Excelam Plus 685 series, with 685 mm laminating width. GMP also sells the foils, with a good range of metallic, glitter, diffraction, holographic and coloured effects. Other laminators makers have broadly similar foiling options. Vivid offers foiling attachments on its Matrix range of sheetfed laminators, with maximum widths of 330 mm. Last year it showed a prototype version of its Easymount Air 1.6 metre wide format laminator (which features pneumatic pressure rollers),

called Airfoil. This has foiling attachments and is expected to reach the market later this year. There’s no price yet but a standard Easymount Air costs about €9,500. Vivid’s Boss range of laminating consumables includes toner-receptive laminating film to protect the underlying print as well as a choice of foils to go on top of toner print. The foils themselves can be overprinted, broadening the range of possible effects. Toner printing Most lamination foilers work with dry toner from copier/printer or digital production press or with liquid toner from an HP Indigo digital press. These contain quite a lot of plastic material that soaks up heat easily. Inkjets, which use much finer pigment or dye particles, unfortunately don’t work the same way, except for some UV inks that

form a polymer layer. Using dry and liquid toners imposes a size limit. Most dry toner printers are limited to A3+ formats, up to about 330 mm wide. Exceptions include the 500+ mm width length Xeikon roll fed models, or toner based roll fed CAD/GIS/ plan printers such as the KIP range with media widths up to 914 mm. HP Indigo liquid toner presses are also mainly SRA3 format, but there are some B2/500+ mm width roll and sheet fed models. These are all good machines and can be used for POS and POP signage, but not for large formats. Some high speed industrial class laminators can be adapted for foil application, for instance the UK’s Autobond and Germany’s Leonhard Kurz have models for either hot foiling onto toner or coldfoiling together with purpose-built inkjets. However these are built for high volume work and priced accordingly, so aren’t really designed for the relatively low volumes that most

Larger formats I-Sub Digital which uses a variation of the UV method in its Digi-Foil system, designed for use with Mimaki’s series of flatbed UV inkjets. Here the Mimaki primer ink is used as an adhesive and foil is applied on top. A hand-held roller can be used for small quantities, but the company can also supply DFPro thermal laminators (based on Vivid models) in 460 mm, 650 mm and 1,200 mm widths. These laminators can be used with prints from the with the Mimaki UJF range of small format printers, with bed sizes from A3 up to 710x510 mm. The larger JFX200 flatbed, with bed sizes of 2.5 x 1.3 m or 2.5 x 3.1 m, has the same ink set and so foil can be applied using either the hand applicator for small areas, or the largest 1.2 m DF-Pro laminators. Both Scodix and MGI make dedicated embellishment inkjets that overprint clear polymer to gives raised and textured effects similar to embossing. Both offer cold-foiling options to go with these, producing convincing foil blocking effects. Scodix currently makes six models in sizes from B3+ to B1, and speeds up to 4,000 sheets per hour. MGI’s JetVarnish is available in B2 and B1 sizes. However, these are vastly more expensive than modified laminators. A B2 MGI JetVarnish 3D costs about €290,000 or about €815,000 for the B1 Evolution. The various Scodix models cost from about €290,000 to €1.4 million. Landa showed this brand new NanoMetallography technology last year. It’s not dependent on underlying print.

Finally, a new technology that may or may not prove relevant in future years. Landa, which is developing a new offset inkjet technology process called Nanography, last year showed a completely new method for applying mirror-finish foil inline with any press, that it calls NanoMetallography. In February 2017 it announced that it had sold the technology to Altana Group and will commercialise it through a new German company called Actega Metal Print. A prototype shown last year was for narrow web label printing, but the process can in principle be made for wider formats. There’s been no hint of pricing. Applications So far digital foiling is mainly intended for smaller format printing, to add value to books, brochures, POS, labels and luxury packaging. The fact that there’s little on the market for wider formats may reflect the anticipated demand – the foil effects are most eye-catching when viewed up closely, and larger format signage is usually viewed at a distance. You can use a wide format printer to output many smaller copies at once, but in that case you can cut them up and run them through a smaller format foiling system. One recent study suggested that up to a quarter of all digital print is already “embellished” in some way. While we suspect that spot gloss varnish accounts for most of this, it seems clear that printers and customer see embellishment as adding value and eye-appeal. Foiling has a timeless appeal that pre-dates printing by thousands of years, so you can be sure that we’ll be seeing a lot more of it in future digital systems.


Which is the best laminator for your print business?

Whilst the basic principles of laminating remain much the same, refinements can be seen in the development of new machines and technologies. Laminating is a very common and surprisingly versatile process that’s commonly used as a finishing stage in wide format printing. Its most familiar use is to put a clear protective film onto printed paper or vinyl. However, that’s just the start of what you can do if you have a laminating machine, a stock of different films, and some experience and imagination. They allow you to create finished products that add a lot of value to the print stage. These may take a fair bit of manual work but it’s more than balanced by the higher margins they can command. While operating the machines is simple, the important thing is for the operator to learn the techniques


| SCREENTEX | February - March 2017

and procedures needed for what can be quite complex sequences of material preparation and application. There are training courses and demonstrations by the suppliers, but YouTube also has a wealth of useful videos on specific procedures for different laminating jobs. Laminating machines can apply special effects films, or they can be used in mounting printed or plain materials to board and other rigid materials. It’s often possible to hand-mount such materials, but a laminator makes it much easier and helps to reduce damage and errors. How it works At its heart any laminator has a pair of rubber (or rubberlike) rollers with a variable-sized gap between them. They are used to press two materials together, with a layer of adhesive in between. The purpose is to apply a smooth, even pressure so

the two materials bond properly, without bubbles or creases. Depending on the sophistication (and cost), laminators may have motorised rollers that drive the media through the gap, plus feed rollers for rolls of self-adhesive laminating film, and take-up rollers for the backing paper (“release liner”) as it is peeled away. Even with sheet-fed laminators the film is continuous, so either hand or machine trimming is needed to separate the finished items. In most wide format laminators the roller gap is set by hand by screws at either end (so these must be carefully levelled), but a few companies offer pneumatic roller controls which align automatically to the media (and are controllable so for instance they won’t crush delicate foam board). Laminators can also be used with pre-cut sheets or boards that may be hand-fed or using a powered feeder for high volume models. Normally the laminator controls include a foot pedal so both hands can be used to position the materials as they are guided into the rollers. The speed of the rollers will be variable and the direction can be reversed to allow for a bit of trial and error. For operator safety detectors in the roller nip area will stop the machine (or refuse to start it) if fingers or clothing gets too close. For higher volume roll fed wide format work there may be a roll feeder and take-up roller for the target media, though most of

GUEST COLUMN this work tends to be with pre-cut sheets and hand-feeding. Laminators used for signage, display or vehicle wrap work don’t tend to need very high throughput and you can get a good machine for between €5,000 and €10,000, or €15,000 if you really need the best. Most manufacturers offer a choice of widths, such as the Easymount series which ranges from a simple 650 mm width desktop model to the sophisticated 1.6 metre Air 1650 SH with pneumatic roller pressure control. Some wide format laminators are supplied with trays or tables to support long sheets and boards as they are guided into the rollers and to stop them falling on the floor as they emerge. If not it’s easy enough to set up something of your own, preferably with locking castors so they can be wheeled in and out of position as needed. It’s common to cover these with cutting mats, so they can act as working tables as well. Hot or cold? Thermal laminators have heated rollers that work with a heat-activated adhesive that gives a strong, permanent bond. A single-sided thermal laminator only heats the top roller, so is used for conventional singleside lamination. A dual heated roller machine can be used for encapsulation too, where thermal film is applied to both sides of the target media at once. Alternatively a cold-acting adhesive may be preferred, usually because the substrate may be damaged by heat (such as vinyl). Unheated large format laminators cost less to buy, but are less flexible. Any thermal laminator can be used with cold films simply by

switching off the heater. One of the most important aspects of a lamination machine is to bring the materials together without bubbles or creases, with just the right pressure to activate the adhesive properly without crushing delicate substrates. The resilient rubbery material of the rollers helps with this, but you’ve also got to set the gap between them to allow the thickness of the materials to go through with just enough “nip” pressure to make the bond. With thermal laminators you’ve got to be sure the machine is up to temperature before starting to use it, or the adhesive won’t activate properly. Dust is always an enemy of lamination as it can be trapped permanently beneath the film. Hand feeding is a relatively slow process where there’s time to wipe the top of each print with a sticky tack cloth to remove dust (and static) before it reaches the rollers. For high speed machines a more automatic anti-static and cleaning system may be built in, as well as a cooling system after the heated rollers. However, there are also laminators that are used for high volume litho or screen printed work. These can be very heavy duty machines with printing press-style sheet feeders and delivery stackers, with prices to match. Prices of €30,000 to €50,000 are not uncommon. Vacuum presses Another way to laminate uses a vacuum frame rather than rollers. For instance the Hot Press units have a heated glass top and a vacuum base. They can use dry mount tissues, which are adhesive-impregnated paper sheets that are not sticky until

heat and pressure is applied. This method allows items such as picture mounts to be positioned exactly and monitored through the glass before committing yourself. Larger vacuum units can take multiple separate items at once, increasing productivity. Digital printing The introduction of digital processes raised new challenges. Early dry toners contained a lot of silicon oil after fusing, and this made it hard for standard laminating films to stick to the printed areas. New adhesives and sometimes higher pressures were needed, though most modern toner presses use less oil. With solvent based inks, used in many large format inkjets, the problem can be outgassing. The ink continues to cure for up to 48 hours after printing, even if it feels dry. If you laminate too soon, the vapourising solvents will create bubbles under the film. This affects both strong solvent and eco/mild solvent inks, and means that such jobs often have to be re-rolled and stored for several days before they can be laminated, finished and delivered. This is one reason why HP’s Latex inks are popular, as they don’t have an outgassing problem.

Neither do UV-cure or aqueous inks. Hybrid solvent-UV inks are also intended to avoid the outgassing problem, as they have a minimum solvent content that flashes off on the printer. Applicators Applicators are a more

industrial variation on laminating machines, usually used to either apply rolls of plain or pre-printed self-adhesive vinyl to large flat panels or flexible media. They are generally used so the roller works from the centre outwards to one end in the first pass, and then return to the centre and go in the other direction for the second pass. The roller carriage runs freely on bearings and is pushed by hand, unlike the fixed position and motorised (and often heated) rollers of a laminator. Swedish RollsRoller company pioneered the idea. Its applicator tables have a travelling roller carriage that press the adhesive surface to the target surface while peeling away the backing material (either by hand or with take-up rollers. All

models include a long flat surface that’s illuminated from below and can be used as a working and cutting table. Applicators (and laminators for that matter) can also be used to apply application tapes. This can be supplied in narrow rolls as the tape name implies, but for larger format use they are wide rolls of clear adhesive backing film. They are applied to the top surface of cut-out vinyl letters and shapes, to hold them accurately in position after the surrounding media is weeded away (ie removed). The shapes can then be transferred accurately on to the final surface (eg a van side or window) and the applicator tape removed to leave the shapes adhering accurately in position. The transparency helps with positioning.

What is thermoelectric screen printing?

What if you could easily print a thin layer of material – for use anywhere – that would allow you to create flexible energy harvesters or coolers? That may soon be a reality. Thermoelectric conversion is a solid-state and environmentally friendly energy conversion technology with broad applications that include solid-state cooling, energy harvesting and waste heat recovery. Flexible thermoelectric devices are especially attractive for waste heat recovery along contoured surfaces and for energy harvesting applications to power sensors, biomedical devices and wearable electronics – an area experiencing exponential growth. However, obtaining low-cost, flexible and efficient thermoelectric materials is extremely difficult due to many materials and manufacturing challenges. In work led by Professor Yanliang Zhang at Boise State


| SCREENTEX | February - March 2017

University, high-performance and low-cost flexible thermoelectric films and devices were fabricated by an innovative screen-printing process that allows for direct conversion of nanocrystals into flexible thermoelectric devices. The precise control of the starting nanocrystals’ shape and surface chemistry and the optimization of the nano-ink and screen-printing process are the key factors giving rise to unprecedented performances in the printed thermoelectric materials. The paper on this work, “High-performance and flexible thermoelectric films by screen printing solution-processed nanoplate crystalsis,” was recently published on the Scientific Reports website. The collaboration with high-tech startup company ThermoAura, focusing on nanocrystal synthesis, also

contributed to the success of this work. Based on initial cost analysis, the screen-printed films can realize thermoelectric devices at 2-3 cents per watt, an order of magnitude lower than current state-of-the-art commercial devices. Such a cost reduction would make thermoelectrics a very competitive energy conversion technology that could tremendously open up the largely underexplored markets on waste heat recovery. This additive printing method not only will benefit thermoelectrics, but also result in a disruptive manufacturing approach for other electronic devices and energy conversion or storage technologies of ultralow cost and flexibility. Zhang’s vision on marrying additive manufacturing and advanced energy technology to enable major technology breakthroughs also has been recognized by a major federal funding agency. He recently received an infrastructure award from U.S. Department of Energy to invest advanced additive printing equipment and establish stateof-the-art additive manufacturing capabilities at Boise State. This new capability will enable students to perform cutting edge research on additive manufacturing and their applications on printing sensors, flexible electronics and energy conversion and storage system.

Digital will pave the next wave of growth for us: Vimlesh Arora

In an exclusive and rather candid interview with ScreenTex, Vimlesh Arora of JN Arora talks about the business, growth and the future growth avenues for the company. JN Arora is a renowned name in the printing industry. The Delhibased company baby-stepped into printing industry in the year 1958. Late Joginder Nath Arora, on whom the company has been named, started operation in a small shop in the old Delhi region, which is the hub of commercial business in the

union capital. In years to come, it expanded its basket by including solutions for almost all need of printing technology – offset, flexographic, security, screen graphics, screen textile, digital sublimation printing and even a range of adhesives and special tapes. The company has been growing over 15% in the last five years, and expects to notch it a few per cent up in the next five years. Few from the print fraternity have often

expressed amazement at how this company has been able to sustain its bottomline while continuously increasing its base of offering. Vimlesh Arora, the CEO of the company, on the other end, believes the credit for the growth should go to his customer. “We began the company like any other entrepreneur. But the hunger to grow and expand that we witnessed with our customers was infectious. Since printing was a buzzing industry, a lot of them could have easily settled with a few suppliers and brands. However, contrary to this thought, each one of the customers we dealt with wanted to experiment with new brands and was constantly striving to improve.” Perhaps, this is why JN Arora is on a perpetual hunt for the next line of products that can help it create a full basket of offering. While this seems like a great strategy, it is equally strenuous, claims Vimlesh. “Being on the constant search drains you. You come across several great products but not all fit the markets you serve. Printing has science at its core. Therefore, any product can only contribute its best if it matches some set conditions. While selecting partners we have always done our bit of R&D. Customer centricity is something that has been a culture at our organisation and hence any product that we put our name to has to be able to at least sustain – if not add to – the brand trust we have earned over the years. That’s our criterion for selection.” He adds that a large number of trends can be easily spotted by attending international seminars,

LIMELIGHT conferences, exhibitions and then marrying them with the prevailing trends in the country. “Striking a fine balance between what’s new and what’s feasible is the real secret to develop a full-spectrum offering. And mind you, the spectrum is dynamic in nature. As customer expectations change, the spectrum widens.” “It was in 1996, during our first visit to Fespa in France when we realised in order to grow we need to have a different approach towards capturing market share. We realised that there was a plethora of opportunities. We started first with screen mesh and then in 2002. We entered the T-shirt printing segment. Gradually, we built a strong list of brands that we could offer including Siser which prides itself as a leading manufacturer of thermo transfer for textile industry,” he adds. Vimlesh says that each of his partners have helped him get closer to new growth paths. For instance, “Siser opened a new growth avenue for us. We got access to players who were interested in digital media printing,” he says. The basket today encompasses leading names of the printing industry such as DIC, 3M, Siser, VIVID, Siliconi, Avery Dennison, Pidilite, Elkalub, Skarta, Luminescence, Fujifilm Sericol, Unirich, Heilderberg , Kiwo, Smart Solution,Union, O2 among others. “However, it’s not that all decisions have been spot-on. For instance, the decision to enter narrow label could have waited. The market was not mature enough and hence, though, it was not a loss making proposition, in comparison to other ventures and partnerships, it didn’t kick off as well as we expected,” he shares. “The peculiarity of the Indian market lies in the customer attitude. While some regions

and players show keenness to experiment, others don’t. Some prefer to have the quality discussions first and cost later; whereas others put cost as the first point of discussion. Some like to bargain and some are open to pay premium for service. The market is as different as are the dialects in the country. Therefore, the type of customer you are dealing presents you different challenges,” he adds. One of the biggest impediments for the industry is the unscientific costing methodology. Vimlesh confesses that it has been one of my pet peeves. “If you are deciding your cost of service based on what your competition charges, you are beginning on a wrong foot. Costing is dependent on your operational efficiency and expertise. Your survival depends on how you master it. And therefore, it’s epochal you learn it sooner,” he says. Digital is the next battleground With digital taking the centre-stage, JN Arora doesn’t want to miss out on the market. The company has sort of virtually divided its team to have a sharpened focus on the digital segment. For this, JN Arora recently tied-up with Agfa for its Anapurna and Jet-I range of presses. Since Jet-I already has

good install base in India which makes it easier for JN Arora to take the product to deeper markets. “We also have another mid-range printing machine Handtop. We have successfully installed few machines recently in the country, and are optimistic about future sales of this press. “We are also working with Polyprint direct to garment printers from Greece. It is one of the fastest growing segments and the machine sits perfectly well with the demands of the entry level DTG customers. In addition, we are working with Smartjet for entrylevel models specially focusing on the gifting segments which are equipped with Ricoh heads. There are also machines for printing on Sunpack, Sunboard, and fabrics, vinyls etc. This is in addition to several other brands we are in discussions with to increase our digital portfolio,” adds. From the hustle and bustle at the headquarters of the company, it was evident that the digital team is on a war foot. Vimlesh shared that in the past few months the team has expanded at a healthy rate to support this new business division. “We have been creating a team of skilled salesmen, marketers and technologist to drive the goals. Now we have a team of 100+ people who are working for JN Arora, with a separate marketing and sales team for digital business.”

Dean, tell me the answer: Climate and technical printing problems

Vegetable fibres are the primary raw material for paper, and these fibres are sensitive to moisture. Depending on the humidity of the surrounding air, they either absorb or exude moisture. The extent to which paper contains moisture, is largely the result of the raw materials used, but the way these raw materials have been prepared in the pulping process also has an effect. If the fibres have been intensively beaten, their surface size will have increased, and this, in turn, increases their capacity to absorb moisture. Mineral fillers, such as calcium carbonate and kaolin, are not actively involved in any processes of moisture exchange. Therefore, papers with a large proportion of fillers contain less moisture than papers with low quantities of fillers or no fillers at all. Sizing (the application of a glue layer) has no significant effect on moisture content. Depending on paper type, the level of moisture content can influence the general properties

of a paper. For instance, in terms of its tensile strength folding resistance and surface smoothness may vary with the level of moisture content. In general, however, the issues mentioned only lead to processing problems under exceptionally adverse conditions. This is very different in the case of two other common phenomena that do cause serious problems: static charge and dimension variations. Both can have a negative impact on the runnability of the paper, thus leading to misregistering and other disturbances of the printing process. Dimension variations Depending on relative air humidity, the fibres contained in the paper either absorb or exude moisture, causing them to swell or to shrink. In other words, the shape of the fibre changes, significantly so in the cross direction, much less in the machine direction. On top of this, during the process

of paper production, the fibres orient themselves in the machine direction (the run direction of the wire). The combined effect of these two phenomena inherent to the production of paper, is that dimension variations are far more pronounced in the cross direction of the paper than in the machine direction. Different types of paper can show swelling levels of 0.1% to 0.3 % in machine direction, as opposed to 0.3% to 0.7% in cross direction. These are values that in the practice of printing will never be reached, but they can be measured in tests of moisture-induced expanding. These tests show that a change in relative air humidity of 10% causes the paper to “grow” in a proportion of 0.1% to 0.2% across the width. This means that a paper of 100 centimetres across, will expand 1 to 2 millimetres – a change in dimension that will definitely lead to printing problems such as misregistering. Fortunately, most printers are aware of the issue, and take these dimension variations into account during pre-press and actual print run. Apart from that, the problem of misregistering caused by absorption of moisture has to a great extent been solved by technical innovations – such as moisturising installations, “lowfount” offset plates, the addition of alcohol to the fountain solution and, last but not least, increased printing speeds significantly reducing the “dwell time” of the paper in the printing press. Static charge Another problem that occurs

TECHNOLOGY from time to time, is sheets of paper “sticking” together. In most cases, this is due to static charges, primarily produced by friction, direct contact with other materials and sudden separation. Static charges most commonly occur when exceedingly dry paper is processed in conditions of low air humidity. A level of 40% to 32% humidity appears to be the critical bottom limit, both for the paper itself and for the relative humidity of the air in the workshop. Static charges, causing sheets to stick together, can result in multiple sheets being fed into the press at the same time. Static charges can also make the cushion of air, separating two sheets in the delivery, dissolve too quickly, thus causing ink from the printed side of one sheet to set off onto the unprinted side of the next one.

Circumstances within control Circumstances in the workshop Today, moisturising installations are used in practically every paper processing environment. Most of these installations are fully automatic or semi-automatic and require little or no maintenance. Particularly during winter, when relative air humidity can drop to very low levels, moisturising installations help to create optimal conditions in storage rooms and workshops. The basic design is the same in all cases: a series of spray nozzles, operating on compressed air and spreading a thin mist of water. The installation automatically maintains the required air humidity according to a set range of humidity values.

PAPER HANDLING Especially in periods of critical climate circumstances, printers are advised to follow these guidelines: • Paper is not an efficient heat conductor. Therefore, allow for sufficient time to let the paper adapt itself to the temperature in the workshop. • Do not open the paper wrapping until printing is about to begin. The wrapping protects the paper from fluctuations in temperature and humidity. • Infrared-drying, which drastically reduces the relative humidity of the paper, should be used sparingly. • During drying, the paper should not be exposed to extremely low temperatures, as this would significantly extend drying times. • Avoid damaging the paper wrapping and carefully rewrap remaining pallets.

Challenge of fine line screen printing for printable electronics

Hiroki Sano of the NBC Meshtec Inc. R&D department discusses why the proper wire mesh must be selected for each printing project. Screen-printing remains the most cost effective method for producing a wide variety of electronic components. Modern electronic components often require conductive line width as fine as 50µm or even narrower. To screen print such a fine conductive line, printers are required to utilize a mesh with the thinnest possible

wire diameter, as this helps to minimize printing interference and to control paste deposit. However, as a wire diameter gets thinner, its strength diminishes and the weaving process becomes challenging. Leading wire mesh manufacturers working to develop wire meshes designed for fine line printing must use higher strength materials. Moreover, in applications such as LTCC, capacitors, and inductors which require dimensional accuracy and stability, a high Young’s modulus wire is vital. Table A shows specific wire meshes designed for fine line printing applications introduced by NBC Meshtec Inc, Japan. The strength and Young’s modulus of the wire increases as you move down Table A (below). Fig. A shows a comparison of physical property between three different wire meshes for reference. It is important that the proper wire mesh specifications

be selected for each individual printing project. Careful consideration should be given to the technical requirements of the print itself, as the print is greatly influenced by the specified mesh’s mesh count, thickness, percentage of open area, strength, dimensional accuracy and so on. Calendered wire mesh (a process where the mesh is flattened by passing between rollers under high pressure) is a typical option designed to improve the mesh performance in several ways: The knuckles of the warp and weft wires are fastened tight and the mesh structure is stabilized to improve dimensional accuracy. The thinner the mesh, the lower the screen thickness, leading to a thinner paste deposit. The flattened knuckles of warp and weft wires improve the surface smoothness of the mesh, helping to improve screen Rz value and ultimately leading to better print resolution.

TECHNOLOGY Mesh thickness consistency is improved to ±1µm (vs. ±2µm with non-calendered mesh), resulting in a more even stencil and print. This precision process can be applied to all wire meshes discussed above. For instance, it is possible to calender the total thickness of a wire mesh down to the thickness of the individual wire diameter + 2µm. So for instance, the M30 360-16µm mesh shown in Photo A can be calendered down to a total mesh thickness of 18µm. 1. Solar Cells (Electrodes) One well-known printable electronics application is photovoltaic or solar cells. Line straightness and uniform paste deposit are essential for printing solar cell surface electrodes. In order to optimize the electrical performance of the solar cell, the light receiving area on the surface of the cell must be maximized while, at the same time, enough paste must be deposited for proper resistivity. As a result, the industry trend has been toward ever narrower and taller lines. To achieve these printed lines, some solar cell manufacturers employ a double-print process. This is a process where two screens are used in succession in a printon-print technique in order to

build up the height of the printed line while still keeping it narrow. Needless to say, this double-print process requires extreme dimensional accuracy and repeatability from both the screen and the printing machine. Most pastes used for printing on solar cells have a relatively high viscosity. Furthermore, squeegee speeds for solar printing are typically running at a rate of about 200mm/second. Consequently, a screen mesh with a small wire diameter and high open area (40%+) is generally required. The ideal meshes for such applications are M30 290-20µm or M30 360-16µm. Photo B and C below feature a screen and printed line using M30 36016µm mesh. The surface of the silicon wafer pictured in Photo D and E displays an irregularity referred to as ‘texture’. Printing on such a surface with variations of up to 15µm is considerably more difficult than printing on a smooth surface. Generally speaking, the rougher the texture, the greater the challenge. For this type of printing, then, screens require a softer, high resolution emulsion with an increased thickness of about

15 to 20µm. This helps improve the gasket effect between the screen and the solar cell substrate. Where finer lines are required, a screen mesh with even finer wire and a substrate with a smoother ‘texture’ are needed. 2. Touch panel (frame extracting electrodes) Oftentimes, untreated PET films, glasses or ITO films are used as printing substrates. With these types of hydrophilic materials, paste spreading can easily occur during printing. For this reason, the paste needs to be extremely high in both viscosity and thixotrophy. Typical printed line widths today are 70µm or narrower. Consequently, a wire mesh with a mesh count of 400 tpi (threads per inch) or higher, and a wire diameter 20µm or thinner, is highly recommended in order to optimize the paste deposit. Photo F features enlarged images of 50µm lines printed on untreated PET film using M12 500-19µm mesh. The most critical spots to print are the curved lines shown in Photo G and the single fine line shown in Photo H, as curved lines are prone to smearing and single lines tend to break or disconnect. Additionally, in a mass production setting, screen clogging is an issue with high

viscosity paste. 3. LTCC Electrode Printing Photo I shows 15µm line and 30µm space printing for an LTCC application. The substrate is a type of ceramic material referred to as ‘green sheet’. This porous material absorbs

4. Screen Printing Finer Lines When screen printing 30µm or finer lines, consider the following important recommendations: • Choose a mesh count of 500 tpi or higher with a wire diameter 20µm or thinner. • Select a high resolution emulsion with photopolymer size of less than 2 microns. • Go with a glass mask (preferably chromium coated) for your artwork. • Use a parallel light or Fresnel lens exposure unit for imaging. • Opt for a precision printer with a suitable printing pressure that does not exert too much

load (squeegee pressure) on the screen. A typical guideline for squeegee pressure is about 0.2 to 0.5 N/cm. • Both screen making and printing should be done in a consistent (temperature and humidity controlled) environment. When possible, prepare/treat the surface of the substrate to minimize ink/paste spreading. Photo J shows a screen with resolved 10µm lines and 20µm spaces using M12 730-13µm mesh and a 5µm EOM (Emulsion Over Mesh) thickness. While many companies are currently screen printing amazingly fine lines such as these with existing processes, research and development continues with the goal of pushing the limits of screen printing.

7 Rules For Effective Shop Planning equipment, shelving, tables, desks, and machinery. Measure these and draw them in at scale. To help move stuff around later, make a few copies of the items and cut them out with scissors. You can then temporarily place them on the layout to brainstorm on what should go where. Once you are satisfied with your shop drawing, use this to examine your workflow based on the SWOT Analysis definition above. On a separate sheet of paper, make a list of the things in your facility that match up to each of the attributes of SWOT.

Space, or more accurately, effective workspace: That is the holy grail in a production environment. Can we layout the shop so there is better flow to enhance our production capabilities? Like a person’s fingerprints, every workspace is different. That being said, our list is a general guideline. Rather than getting into specifics, just think how these points can help you modify your own space. Rule #1 - SWOT Analysis If you haven’t heard of a SWOT Analysis before it stands for Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Strengths are the attributes of the building that are helpful in achieving great production workflow. For instance, a truck high loading dock or windows that allow a good bit of natural light. Weaknesses are the things regarding the space that are harmful to positive workflow. Low ceilings, oddly shaped rooms or production on multiple floors for example. Opportunities are the


| SCREENTEX | February - March 2017

items in the facility that could be changed for a more positive workflow. Removing a non-load bearing wall to enlarge a space for example. Threats are the conditions that are extremely negative in regard to production. These require serious consideration and attention. Inadequate drainage or outdated electrical systems, for example. To get started with your shop SWOT Analysis, use a sheet or two of graph paper and make a simple sketch of your facility layout. Each square represents one foot. Draw it to scale, and make sure you add n all of your doors and windows. Mark your electrical outlets and any water pipes or floor drainage. You want to illustrate your basic architectural blueprint. Once finished, make a few copies. We will be using these, so you will want something to doodle around on for brainstorming. If you are already in working in the space, use one of the copies and add in all of your existing

Rule #2 - Room to Work When planning shop layouts, people concentrate on just the areas around the machines. In fact, the machines will dominate the planning. These things are big, heavy and usually expensive, so that makes a certain amount of sense. Yet, there is a lot of activity that supports these machines. Inventory has to be received and counted. Orders have to be staged for production. There also is a considerable amount of prep work too. Screen-printing requires the screen making, embroidery requires hooping. After your product is decorated, will there be any post-production work? Hangtags applied? Neck labels removed and a new one sewn in? Maybe the shirts get polybagged or custom packaged. Then, everything has to be shipped. Each of these functions requires a certain amount of floor space to happen properly and effectively too. Don’t short change them by just planning on where the high dollar equipment is going to sit. A good chunk of the work happens in the periphery.

BUSINESS Rule #3 - Safety This has to be mentioned. Work safe. When planning your shop, you’ll of course need to leave emergency exits clear. Fire extinguishers should always be well marked, with an area taped off on the floor so they don’t get blocked. As most shops in the industry use chemicals of some sort, you’ll need to make sure your eye-wash stations are easily accessible too. These aren’t hints, as they are in the building codes and workplace safety laws. Don’t set yourself up for a big fine by ignoring them. Make sure it is in your plan by making it a part of your program list when working on your shop layout. Rule #4 - Access This may be one of the most important notions to planning effective workflow. You’ll need to move stuff around. Will you be able to do it easily and all in one direction? Or will it resemble working your way through a maze? Having clear and demarcated travel lanes mapped out on your floor is the secret for effective shop layout. Throw some blue or yellow concrete tape on the floor to mark your access lanes in the shop. This says to everyone, “Keep Clear”. If you mark the lines off and train people not to place a stack of boxes or skids in the lane, moving product through your facility just got easier. Pushing this one step further, have lines marked on the floor where your product should be staged next to your equipment. Train your staff to use the lines to align the boxes so they are placed in neat and orderly rows. Make it easy for success to happen by illustrating the expectations of what to do.

Rule #5 - Storage Does your shop look like a junk pile? The key to easy and effective workflow usually starts with eliminating any bottlenecks or friction points. Quite often the clutter that’s around the shop just gets in the way of working. Get organized. Put stuff away. A good rule of thumb is that the items that are used the most need to be the closest to where the work exists. If multiple work groups use the same tools, make sure there is one set for each group. No need to walk across the room to borrow something. Items that aren’t regularly used need to be stored away from the work and off of the floor if possible. Cabinets, shelving and bins work great. Clearly mark where things go and what’s inside. Put dates on them. After a year or so if you haven’t touched it you might consider selling or discarding it. Rule #6 - Growth One notion to consider is what might happen not only a few months from now when business picks up, but three to five years from now when you need to add some more equipment to the mix. Will you need more room? The reason you might consider this now is that you might need to add plumbing or electrical needs. It may be much more expensive to break up the concrete to add a new drain or work in a new electrical panel. When planning for growth, what changes could you make? For example, putting in electrical outlines higher on the walls, or even in the ceilings may allow you to plug in future equipment without running extension cords everywhere. Get these in early, and allow

yourself the room to expand later. Be sure to talk to your contractor or infrastructure vendor about it when doing any work. Rule #7 - Workflow Ah, the best for last. How your production happens on a daily basis is usually dictated for the most part by the shape of the room, and where the loading docks or doors are situated. A more rectangular shaped room could have everything flow in one direction, like a river. A square shaped room, could have a more circular workflow, like a merry-go-round. What you want to avoid as much as possible is a workflow that operates like a two-way street. You want to avoid collisions if you can. One way workflow is the best. Using the graph paper layout and the rules listed above can you chart out a better workflow for your shop? Where are the friction points where things get log-jammed? What is in the way? Could you turn or flip some equipm ent around that might make a difference? What if you placed your order staging or inventory on the other side of the room? Would that free up some needed space? How much wall space do you have, so if you added shelving you could create those access lanes? Could you sell or throw away any unnecessary items and find your floor again? Ready, Aim, Fire Before you start moving stuff around in your shop, you might want to gather your team together and show them what you have in mind. They are the ones doing the work. Maybe a thought or two from them could help with the project as well. Sometimes involvement with other people produces that one undiscovered great idea that makes all the difference.
