The development prospect of logistics in Beijing's printing industry (Part 2)

advanced equipment that catalyzes "printing" logistics

in the first two issues, we have introduced the macro planning of "logistics" in Beijing's printing industry and the operation concept of the whole printing industry in "logistics" to the care of employees and the society. In principle, almost all activities involving the transaction of structured goods can not be separated from logistics. The difference is just the proportion of logistics in the whole business process

in fact, logistics activities are going on all the time from the salesperson receiving the order to the delivery of printed matter to the customer! Transferring paper, sending semi-finished products after printing to the binding factory for post printing processing, or delivering the final products to the place designated by the customer are all part of the logistics process. Especially in industries with various production processes such as printing, each link involves the transportation and storage of materials, semi-finished products and finished products. Therefore, in the daily operation of printing and binding plants, logistics activities account for a large part, affecting the operation of the whole printing production, as well as the flow and turnover of funds and the control of operating costs. The inseparable relationship between printing and logistics also leads to high logistics costs (including transportation fees, warehouse rent, opportunity cost of stored goods, etc.)

if these non-profit costs are not controlled, the consequences will be unimaginable. High logistics costs can affect the flow of company funds at least, and can even lead to the collapse of a company. Just as the "Apple express" event occurred in Hong Kong many years ago, it is because the high logistics costs of express delivery make the turnover insufficient to offset the overall operating costs, and finally the decision to close down has to be made

strictly speaking, "logistics" itself is a professional knowledge, while "printing" is another professional process, which in principle is different types of industries. However, for today's increasingly competitive printing industry, it is not enough to compete only with the quality, cost and production time of the printing process itself. It is also necessary to include the storage, transportation and turnaround time costs of related materials and finished products into the elements of competition, and connect the "logistics" Specialty to the whole production. Moreover, the printing process is numerous and trivial, and each process is closely linked to each other. A certain production process is due to logistics problems, so we Jinan new era Gold Testing Instrument Co., Ltd. need to master the correct online method to prevent such a situation from causing delay or pause, which will affect the next process. In order to better combine the production process and logistics management, the printing production supervisor needs to have both the knowledge of production process and logistics management, which brings many new challenges to the modern printing production supervisor

in fact, this cross industry integration itself is to improve the competitive advantage of final products and services. In addition to the printing service industry, there are many examples in other industries with a large number of customers, especially in foreign countries, including auto parts, clothing, pharmaceuticals, electronic communication products, consumer goods (especially goods sold through supermarkets). Without a cost-effective "logistics" distribution channel, products will not be delivered to customers in time

of course, in order to establish an efficient and perfect "logistics" system, in addition to the "logistics" process and logistics expertise, advanced and even expensive hardware facilities are also required

compared with the "logistics" system of other consumer products, the printing service industry seems to be in the stage of growth, especially in the "logistics" process and professional logistics management knowledge. Many internationally renowned "logistics" outsourcing service management companies, including "DHL solutions" and Federal Express (UPS), have set up special logistics solutions for many industries, but have not yet made relevant solutions for the publishing and printing industry

fortunately, so far, many European and American countries have a certain foundation in the research and development of hardware to promote printing logistics, especially in countries with relatively high labor costs, employers are very willing to invest in hardware to improve the productivity of employees, thereby reducing major labor costs

automated logistics equipment helps to improve the efficiency of logistics activities in the printing plant, and can also cooperate with the digital information management of the production department, combining the two to integrate operation management. Before the popularization of computers, the surface Rockwell hardness test adopts two indenters: 120 ° diamond cone and 1.587mm steel ball. All the materials, semi-finished products and finished products in and out of the warehouse, and the printing and production operation are recorded manually, which greatly depends on the experience of the staff in charge of recording, as well as his familiarity with the transportation process and printing work arrangement, so as to achieve efficient material allocation and timely transportation. The biggest drawback of manual mode is that it is not conducive to the establishment of the system, and it often makes the arrangement of logistics deviate from the actual production work. Today, advanced printing enterprises generally use computers to cooperate with management, and logistics departments and production departments can jointly establish an interconnected information system. The more automation of modern logistics equipment and printing equipment also enables manufacturers to carry out centralized control and central management through computers, thereby simplifying the work of logistics management and making logistics operations more systematic

at present, Reed Exhibitions will launch the Asian transportation lightweight exhibition at the same time of next year's aluminum industry exhibition. In view of the relatively low domestic labor cost, it is not obvious that domestic enterprises have invested a lot in high-tech hardware in accelerating logistics. Only in the publishing industry, because time is the lifeline of publishing, domestic printing and distribution institutions are increasing their investment in newspapers and publications to meet the requirements of on-time printing, so as to improve their own competitive advantage in publishing and printing

taking this opportunity, we briefly introduce some advanced equipment to promote the logistics of "printing products" for your reference:

(1) computer direct plate making equipment (CTP) saves process from technology, It can also be regarded as the equipment to promote printing logistics

(2) the "keel belt" that transfers newspapers from the newspaper rotary machine to the stacker at high speed

(3) the automatic transport vehicle that transmits goods according to the designated track (the Yellow route drawn on the ground)

(4) the automatic printing plate transportation and storage system dedicated to the newspaper office - the number of printing plates consumed by newspaper printing is very large, and the printing plates are sent from the printing room to the workshop only by manual transportation, It is very time-consuming and laborious to store the printed plates after printing. This storage system can automatically send the printing plate to the printing workshop along the road track, and automatically take it back after printing. Since each printing plate is bar coded, this system can quickly classify and properly store the printing plates

(5) Hanel lean lift vertical automatic lifting shelf saves a lot of plane space and rent, and saves a lot of storage costs

(6) the pallet type automatic storage system systematically manages the warehouse and stores goods by categories

(7) Roland aupasys fully automatic paper table conveying system makes the logistics system automated

1 Raw material warehouse 2 Lifting device with intermediate plate 3 Storage 4 Shuttle 5 Transfer tray 6 System tray 7 Empty paper tray 8 Paper table replacement device 9 Stack reversing device 10 Chain system of roller conveying angle 11 Turn to platform

(8) Europe and Japan have launched many printing equipment, which can be equipped with automatic plate loading and infrared or ultraviolet drying devices to increase production efficiency, reduce or even save paper drying time, and promote the flow speed of semi-finished products
