Screen Printing - June/July 2018 - 8

PRESSING ISSUES

operations and the value of thinking in the long term. All four
speakers agreed that educating their customers is key - you
can't count on the customer to know the benefits of a sustainably
produced product. "We have to be the ones to ask the hard
questions to move the industry forward," Dela Cruz said.
Mark Hanley, IT Strategies, addressed "What Single-Pass
Printing Means for Your Business." Hanley said that ceramic
tile printing has embraced single-pass technology, but other
areas have been slower to adopt. The future offers a range of
new products, with some concern about single-pass printhead
cost, propensity for nozzle failure, and maintenance integration to prevent nozzle failures.
"The Future is Now: The Two Key Places to Automate
Your Production" offered attendees insight into automation
from workflow to customer communication to the shop
floor. Richard Labiuk, president of Holland & Crosby (hollandandcrosby.com), and Brian Hite, president of Image Options
(imageoptions.net), discussed the ways automation can save
time in the long run, despite some effort in the short term.
"Automation is really just saving time, money, and effort.
Five minutes may not seem like big savings, but all that time
adds up," Labiuk said.
