KP-Connect enables you to access and share detailed press operating information in a secure, cloud-based environment. Remote 24/7 visibility into the information you need helps keep your finger on the pulse of your business, so you can maximize press usage, improve productivity, and increase profitability.
KP-Connect Basic is a service that improves productivity by allowing Komori and the printing company to share detailed press operating information and by making printing operations visible in the safe environment of the cloud. The printer’s own improvements as well as data-based press and process improvement methods from Komori are presented.
KP-Connect Basic can aggregate operating status data on a job-by-job, weekly or monthly basis.
KP-Connect Basic produces a detailed breakdown of schedules and improvements to increase efficiency through analysing changeover times, registration and colour adjustments, printing, and idle times.
Before you can reduce lost time and increase productivity, you must first visualize and understand your production operation.
When production operation is visualized, areas of improvement are brought to surface.
KP-Connect enables you to instantly access the workflow in your press room so you always have accurate data on hand.
The KP-Connect portal dashboard contains a monthly summary of operations with options to look through previous and upcoming months and to switch between multiple machines. It offers a comprehensive overview, including factors such as make-ready times, printing speed and test printing.
From there, the tabs at the top enable users to track job progress, manage maintenance, view more detailed reports, receive a trends analysis and explore the knowledge centre. It puts your press information directly into your hands so you can make informed decisions.
With a world of data at your fingertips, printers can now be even more connected to their business helping them streamline their process and give customers a higher quality of service.
