Scheduled Preventative Maintenance

Graphic Innovators offers a program of scheduled preventative maintenance wherein GI technicians, during one week annually, work from splicer through to the folder checking and correcting maintenance areas (tasks?) on each press element. The thrust of our efforts is to address those items normally requiring periodic maintenance that for whatever reason are not addressed by plant maintenance or press crews. Once completed company management receive a detailed report of all items address and the actions taken.

This program is designed to minimize the disruption in your press room all the while providing the maximum of productivity insurance and downtime avoidance. Some items, but not all, covered by the program and usually missed by plant personnel are listed here:

• Remove all drive line guarding for inspection of belts, shafts etc for wear and proper adjustment.

• Check all small gearboxes for proper lubrication and state of repair.

• Drain print unit gear cases, clean and remove debris, inspect gearing

• Inspect all placements of all press elements on press pad, insuring all shims are tight.

• Spot check all work side enclosures, inspecting rotary unions, register mechanisms and fountain drives.

• Inspect splicer and hoist

• Inspect dryer, insuring proper damper setup and gas usage within proper limits.

• Inspect chill roll rotary unions, valves and piping, drive components and belting.

• Inspect folder gearcase, drain oil and inspect for debris, inspect on the run adjustments, inspect and repair paper transport tapes and inspect and verify all pulleys spin freely. Inspect all driven rolls for excessive surface wear and insure condition of drive bearings.

Press Rebuild, Remanufacture and parts

Factory rebuilds are completed at GI’s 92,000 square foot facility located just west of Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. A factory rebuild not only permits the typical mechanical remanufacturing activities and cleaning but also allows for electronic control system and press drive upgrades.

GI has the necessary depth of knowledge in M-600 within its qualified in-house operations and engineering staff and in its field service group as well.

A typical M-600 rebuild would include the following:

• Remanufactured blanket cylinders with new bearings

• Remanufactured plate cylinders with new bearings

• Install new ductor drive CYCLO gearboxes • Install new latest version ductor lever design

• Remanufactured water pan rolls, ink vibrator rolls and fountain rolls

• Cleaning, Inspection and resetting of all ink fountains, inspect gearbox and coupling and replace if necessary
