With Klappe’s experience of more than 27 years in the graphics arts industry in the Asia Pacific region, he knows that automation is key. Klappe commented: “ The technology is already there to connect your machines to a MIS (Management Information System) and to other machines and systems. They can communicate with each other and with us, to automate the printing process. This way, connectivity can help the operator reduce mistakes and increase efficiency.”
