Award-winning Lean Manufacturer Increases Productivity by 500 Percent with the Truepress Jet L350UV+LM; Press Expected to Assume 100 Percent of Company’s Print Jobs

SCREEN Americas announces its customer’s satisfaction and success with the Truepress Jet L350UV+LM. FastCap, LLC, a lean manufacturer of unique household products located in Ferndale, Washington, installed the press in June 2020 and has since increased its productivity by 500 percent.

A first-time customer of SCREEN Americas and new to inkjet technology, FastCap’s founder and chief executive officer, Paul Akers, hitherto operated flexographic in-line roll presses in his 50,000 square foot facility. Being a lean manufacturer of more than 800 products designed to improve the daily lives of woodworking professionals and homeowners, Akers operates his presses intermittently. Prior to purchasing SCREEN’s technology, the company had been devoting at least eight hours a day to any given print job. With the Truepress Jet L350UV+LM, those same jobs are now completed in as little as seven minutes each. With the extra time, Akers is now able to schedule multiple print jobs in a single day and focus on other areas of the business that might need attention.

At least 60 percent of FastCap’s printing projects have already been transferred to the Truepress Jet L350UV+LM and Akers expects to eventually migrate 100 percent of his print jobs onto his new press. “The quality is better, the ink is more durable and it is faster than my other presses,” said Akers.

Choosing to invest in SCREEN’s technology was not a difficult decision for Akers. Already partial to Japanese technology, Akers needed a press that would meet certain challenges including printing on certain grades of paper and printing close to the paper’s edge. Akers chose low migration ink so that he’d have the ability to print labels for food products and also opted to add white and orange to the standard CMYK colors.

FastCap LLC has over 2,000 distributors in 40 countries and earned the prestigious Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award for lean manufacturing in 2016.
