Real-time and historical press productivity statistics for Heidelberg offset printing presses
PressReporter helps you to maximise your presses productivity by allowing you to see what is happening on your presses in real time, without the need to keep visiting the pressroom for updates.
View current press status showing what job is on the press, time on press, number of sheets run including wasteage, how many times the press has stopped and why. PressReporter gives an easy visual display of press productivity and events, and this is all done automatically with no need for any manual input.
Heidelberg SM, XL, CX, SX presses with the Management Gate or Instant Gate licenses on their CP2000 or Press Center press consoles can feed data into PressReporter with minimal user intervention - no button pushing or activity logging for your printer minders - they can concentrate on printing while PressReporter keeps track of everything automatically. Older presses or those from another manufacturer can be integrated using PressReporter's manual logging option allowing you to track job progress on all your press from a single PressRepoter system.
React to scheduling problems and opportunities immediately
PressReporter allows people within your company to respond quickly to unforeseen changes on the press, for example a damaged plate, misfeeding paper, drying taking longer than expected, and much more. Production management are able to see if jobs are falling behind or move a job to another press that is ahead of schedule. It allows them to make quick informed decisions based on up-to-the-minute information coming directly from your printing presses.
PressReporter allows all this information to be available to anyone with a valid PressReporter login from a standard web browser anywhere on your company network from any desktop, tablet or mobile phone.
Review and compare shift productivity
PressReporter generates shift reports for any date period allowing you to check and compare print minder's productivity broken down into make-ready, printing, wash up and non-job related tasks.
Cost jobs more accurately
PressReporter gives estimators the ability to look back through the complete job history of the press to see exactly what the cost of a job was last time it ran, or the overheads of similar jobs when quoting for new work. The search facility makes it easy to find any job and know immediately how much press time and paper it took.
Know your history, plan for the future
PressReporter lets you analyse retrospectively by reviewing a previous time period, such as a day, week or month, to spot production bottlenecks and compare different periods. You can see exactly how your presses are performing day-to-day over a period of time. It can also help you to understand those often unaccounted for non-productive times to inform decisions about work schedules and productivity to reduce unnecessary downtime and poor performance.
