RF Header - Do you make the cut

Your finishing department directly contributes to your bottom line.

A typical finishing department has three key functions, each making a significant contribution to a job’s total production time:

  • Operation: rewinding and producing finished rolls
  • Cycle Operations: set-up, roll changes, fault edits and removal
  • Non-machine work / non-value activities: paperwork, job files, workspace organization, collecting materials, boxing, etc.

Analyzing these areas can help organize and prioritize activities, saving both time and cost and resulting in a substantial impact on the bottom line.
