in production, the complete process involved in getting presses ready to run. Make ready includes roll mounting, plate mounting, inking, and registering and adjusting.
The "building-up" of a printing plate so that the heavy and light areas print with the correct impression.This also refers to all operations before production.
The process of preparing a printing press before a new run, to establish register, ink density, consistent impression, and so on
Also called set up. All work done on a printing press before running a job. Make ready includes adjusting the plate, feeders, grippers, side guides; putting inks in the fountains; registration; and matching the printed result to the supplied proof (bringing it up to color). For short runs of a few thousand, the make ready costs are a significant percentage of the total printing costs.
The process of setting up the actual press used to do a particular job.
(1) In printing plants, the general preparatory operations prior to going to press, including the adjustment of cutting, creasing, and scoring rolls, and preparation of the press. On an offset press, the adjusting of feeder, grippers, side guide, pressure between plate and offset blanket cylinder, putting plate on press and ink in fountain to be ready to run the press. (2) On a photocomposing machine, the preparatory work of positioning negative in holder, plate on back, and getting ready to start exposures in step-and-repeat operation of platemaking.
All the activities required to set up the press before printing can begin.
The preparation, running and testing of a press prior to printing a job. It involves mounting printing plate/s, inking up and finally running the machine (usually using wasted stock) all to achieve optimum print quality.
All process operations prior to the actual printing of the substrate
The building up of the press form or plate so that the heavy and light areas print with the correct impression.
The time spent in making ready the level of the printing surface by placing packing under the form or around the impression cylinder. Also, the process in getting an offset press ready for printing.
