GEW Innovations Cut Costs for Customers
GEW will shortly be offering its customers another major benefit – remote monitoring of its installations. Here the system’s control units can be directly connected to any GEW via the Internet, where they can be monitored from any of their service centres worldwide. Conditions that affect UV curing performance, reliability and efficiency such as ambient factory temperature, unchanged filters or other minor maintenance issues can be diagnosed and pre-emptively corrected, eliminating unnecessary downtime and service calls.
Set against the background of the recession, these new innovations could not have come at a better time. Compared with conventional UV curing technologies, the company’s e-System range of electronic power supplies and optically perfected lampheads has collectively saved its customers an estimated 7 million pounds and has reduced their carbon emissions by around 30,000 tonnes to date. This healthy saving in operating costs and carbon footprint has coincided with tightening environmental legislation, delivering printers a twofold benefit. In addition, the company remains true to its long-standing policy of competitively priced original equipment spare parts and highly responsive after-sales service. These latest innovations will further sharpen the operational efficiency and payback time of any press specified with a GEW system, helping to relax the pressures that today’s economy is exerting on our industry.
