The Job Was Going Great Until....

The Big Job Was Going Great Until….
by Noel Ward, Editor@Large
The big job was going great until a small wrench vibrated its way off the top of a tower and dropped into your press. It did a number on the plate, put a really amazing gouge on the impression cylinder, and made an incredible sound before the operator got the thing shut down. And you were only 20 minutes into a three-hour, six-color job on your primary sheet-fed press. Helluva way to start a Tuesday.

So minutes later you, the pressman, and a couple others are huddled around the press, considering the damage and thinking about what to do. Removing the impression cylinder and resurfacing it would take the better part of a week and you have too much work in the queue to lose this press for that long. Getting a new roll from the press manufacturer will run well north of Twenty-Large. You do not want to outsource these jobs and give up the revenue. The calculator in your brain is clicking away and you don’t like the numbers. Link to Article
