Basic Operation, Maintenance and Troubleshooting of Pressio Collating Machine

on October 11, 2021

When we receive inquiries about Pressio products, the most frequently asked question is regarding maintenance as well as the price.
For a company considering purchasing a relatively large product like Pressio machine, we understand that quality, price, durability, and how to take care are usually key factors.
Today, I have uploaded a blog with photos and videos on our website regarding basic operation, maintenance (including replacement of consumables) and troubleshooting of Pressio collating machine.

It may surprise you that our collating machines can be easily handled by men and women of all ages. Mainly for maintenance, all you need to do is replacing the consumable parts.
Currently about 5,000 units are being used across the world and in many cases young students and the elderlies are operating Pressio collating machines.
Therefore we are confident that our collating machine is a very easily handled product to all people.
Hope this blog will help you clear any concerns you have about maintenance.

 


< Basic Operation >

We have an instruction manual for Pressio collating machine in English, but if you just want to know the outline of the product, for example the explanations of the dial and sticker etc., please take a look at the YouTube below.
You can see there are no difficult adjustments needed and very easy to operate.

In addition, we have prepared many videos for different situations for you to have a better idea of our machine. For example, how to load the paper samples, how to add the samples, how to run a test, etc.

If you are interested, please contact us.

 


< Maintenance and Consumables >

As I mentioned above, the maintenance of the Pressio collating machine is mainly the replacement of consumables. If used properly, it is extremely rare that the other parts of the machine need maintenance.

#1: Consumables-1: 2 types of paper feed rubbers and sponge

Rubber rolls and sponge

-Replacement timing: It depends on the material of the paper sample and how frequently you use the machine, but generally it is recommended to replace it 1-2 times a year.
-Delivery method: Will send by Express Mail Service.

YouTube link : How to replace the rubber roll.

 
 

 

#2: Consumables-2: Chip

-Replacement timing: It depends on the material of the paper sample and how frequently you use the machine, but generally it is recommended to replace it once every 2-3 years.
-Delivery method: Will send by Express Mail Service.

YouTube link : How to replace the chip.

 

 


< Troubleshooting >

There are three possible problems you might face with Pressio collating machine: “paper feed error”, “paper jam”, and “double feed.”
However, many of these errors could be prevented by adjusting the paper feed parts properly. Also when an error occurs, the machine detects the error and automatically stops, and error details are displayed on the LCD panel.

Today, I will introduce in YouTube videos about the three common errors: how to deal with them and how to prevent them.
I’m confident your concerns will be solved by watching the videos.

Case Studies of Wrapping Machine | Utilize Wrapping Machine for In-House Mail for Confidential Documents

on September 27, 2021

In banks, schools, and even government agencies Pressio wrapping machines are useful for sending confidential documents by in-house mail.

If someone opens the envelopes wrapped with plastic film by Pressio wrapping machine, the plastic is torn and cannot be rewrapped. This means it is obvious if someone tries to open the in-house mail during its delivery.
Therefore you will be able to send confidential documents by in-house mail without having to worry about someone else opening and seeing them.

Also plastic films are less expensive than paper envelopes.

 


< Conventional situation >

Usually there are number of confidential documents in banks, schools, and government agencies and those documents are sent by envelopes with tightly sealed sticker so that they cannot be open by someone else.
Once the seal is opened, this kind of envelop cannot be resealed, therefore the recipient will notice if the envelop is opened or not.

These kind of envelopes with a tight seal have a high security level but they are expensive and it takes time to seal manually.

conventional situation

Many companies use the special envelopes shown above for the confidential documents, but it is not cost effective and takes time to seal and unseal.

 


< If you use Pressio machine >

If the department which sends confidential documents starts using Pressio wrapping machine, employees can wrap the documents quickly and easily allowing them to focus on more important roles. Also by switching to plastic film from paper envelopes, you can reduce costs.

If someone else or a staff from other department opens the plastic film, it is very obvious and the recipient will notice it.

Case Studies of Collating Machine for Flyer/Leaflet Distributions

on September 6, 2021

Pressio collating machine and wrapping machine can be useful in the business which delivers advertisements such as flyers and leaflets to individual residential mailbox.

Many of the sponsors often have advertisements in different styles, such as booklets, thin leaflets, and double-folded shapes.
With the conventional collating machines it is impossible to collate those types of ads and there are many cases where people are putting together the ads manually.
If such companies could use Pressio collating machine, they would be able to efficiently mechanize the procedure to set ads and eventually it would improve the business operation by reducing time and costs.

In addition to improving operational efficiency, you can also solve the problems of ads distribution services.

 


< Conventional situation >

Usually many companies, shops, and restaurants have their own staff hand out their ads manually and many people including commuters are annoyed with it.

Also if each sponsor company uses a local delivery company to post the ads to customer’s mailbox, the mailbox will be a mess due to different delivery company posting variety of ads. It could end up with complaints from the customers to the sponsors.

picture-situation-1

Even if someone has an interest in one of the ads, it is sometimes difficult to grab one having that many pedestrians are around and crowded.
Or the worst case is that he or she does not notice the ads due to the crowdedness.

 

picture-situation-2

In the Situation No.2 case, the shops, delivery companies, and residents all are not satisfied with the situation and the impression they get from the ads worsens.

 

 


< If you use Pressio machine >

If the delivery company first collates all the ads and wraps the set of flyers/leaflets with a plastic film, the problems we have will be solved.
In addition, the delivery company may be able to deliver the ads not only to individual homes but also to public places such as hospitals and offices.

Picture- In case with Pressio machine-1

If the companies related to printing, delivery logistics, and flyer distribution could install Pressio machine, they will have chance to develop a new business.

Especially for printing companies it is suitable because they can make their flyers and leaflets on their own.
Also for delivery logistic companies, it is suitable because they can deliver to residential address and also to public places.

Newly equipped with a collation program function that allows to select the leaflets for each customer attribute.

on  July 1, 2021

In recent years, as represented by the term “big data”, advertising is becoming more diversified as companies collect customer information and apply it to advertising.
Even with paper advertising, distributing uniformly the leaflets with the same content is less attractive to customers and consumers.
On the other hand, companies like mail order companies which can manage purchase history and attribute data of the customers have taken advantage of the more effective advertising and have achieved the cross-selling by setting flyers and leaflets according to customer attributes.
Such trend is especially accelerating in recent years.

 

Considering such circumstances, Pressio collating machine is now equipped with a “function corresponding to a collating program that allows to choose the paper samples for each customer attribute.”

 

See Figure 1 below

Figure1: Image of a program which enables to choose paper samples

 

By utilizing this function, it is possible to collate samples with different contents for each set. For example, include a leaflet of a product similar to the one the customer purchased in the past, include a leaflet of a product that is compatible with the customer’s attributes, and include a different leaflet according to the number of times the customer has used the services.

 

Now, how do you choose a flyer or leaflet to match?

 

There are several ways to do this.
For example,
1: Read the barcode that contains the collating instruction content.
2: Read the QR code that contains the collating instruction content.
3: Create the collating instruction content in advance as a csv file or excel file, then import it to a dedicated PC.

 

To be more specific, printing the barcode on the cover of the delivery note or address, printing the barcode on a shipping cardboard then read it in the line process, etc. There are many different ways to adopt to customer demands.

 

In addition, Pressio collating machine can be used as stand-alone style.
(It is also possible to connect to multiple units by communication.)

 

If you are already using a system-controlled equipment line and want to connect Pressio collating machine to that line or add more collating functions, we can handle it. Pressio collating machine can operate by receiving a collating instruction signal from your system.
(There is also interface specification documents available.)

 

“We want to set and bundle flyers and leaflets that match customer attributes for each customer.”

 

If you have such demand, first and foremost please contact Pressio.
We will listen to your current operations and demands, and will propose the best plan possible.

 

We, the Pressio team, look forward to hearing from you.

 

If you’re interested in our products, please please feel free to contact us.

Advantages and disadvantages compared to conventional collators

on June 4, 2021

We show advantages and disadvantages of Pressio collator compared to other conventional collator. Please see below.

 

< Advantages >

 


#1 : Adaptable to various samples, especially to folded shapes and multiple papers

 

The samples which conventional collators cannot work well are no issue with Pressio collator.
Particularly lots of customers make use of Pressio collator for catalog, leaflet, pamphlet, multiple flyer, letter fold sample etc.
Of course, ordinary samples such as NCR, calendar, post card are also well handled with Pressio collator.

Also the available sample size is as follows,
Minimum size: 100 × 148mm / 3.9 × 5.8 inch
Maximum size : 340 × 450mm / 13.3 × 17.7 inch

Please refer to the YouTube video below.

 

 

 


#2 : High speed collating

 

The collating speed is as follows,
Average: 5,700 sets per hour
tMaximum: 8,400 sets per hour

We often suggest the average speed because there are few errors, and in that way your operators can add (refill) your samples on tray smoothly.

 
 
 

#3 : Non-stop-operating

 

You can reduce the collating lead-time really dramatically as you don’t need to stop the machine for refilling papers on the tray.

Please refer to the YouTube video below.

 
 
 
 

#4 : Both front and rear side trays | Vertical type ( Saves your space )

 

Pressio collator doesn’t take so much space as the product has the trays on the both side, front and rear, and it’s a vertical type.

You can save your space.

 

 


#5 : Able to start operating easily and quickly

 

You can start operating Pressio collator immediately after the switch is ON.
Also, if the setting is not changed, you do not need to adjust collating conditions so strictly.
(Of course even elderly people or students can adjust the collating conditions, it is that easy.)

 

 


#6 : Easy maintenance

 

There are only 3 consumption parts with Pressio collator, and the maintenance is just to replace the consumption parts.

There are very few troubles except for the consumption parts.

 

 


#7 : Able to move the machine

 

When you don’t use Pressio collator, you are able to move the machine to your warehouse so easily.
Even one person can handle it easily.

You can make the best use of your space.

 

 


#8 : Folding paper function

 

Pressio collator can fold one main paper and insert the other all samples set into the folded main paper.

The red circle: folded main paper.

Available size of a folding paper:
A4 size = 210 × 297mm (8.3 × 11.7 inch)
A3 size = 297 × 420mm (11.7 × 16.5 inch)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

< Disadvantage >

 


#1 : Standalone machine (only collating function)

 

Pressio collator is standalone type, so it doesn’t have any other functions such as stapling, gluing etc.
It’s more focused on adapting to various applications and to heavy duty collating jobs.

 

 


#2 : Not including movable catch tray (which can separate each collated set)

 

Unfortunately, Pressio collator doesn’t have “movable catch tray “, so the each collated sample set will just pile up on the catch tray.Because we place importance more in the collating speed, we have not integrated this function to Pressio collator.However, we understand that some customers require this function, so we often suggest following solution instead.

 

 

*Remark :
If the width size of your sample is around 440mm (17.3 inch), this solution cannot be used, because the sample cannot be slide left (or right) on purpose.

 

Or if you can use the folding function, the each collated sample set will be separated.

Please refer to the following YouTube video.

 

 


 

Consider Pressio collator if your machine or conventional machines cannot work properly for your sample.

Consider other brand machines if you need an all-in-one-line machine including collating ,stapling or gluing, and cutting.

 

 

Also, if you could share with us about the details of your samples, we would be able to conduct an experiment with your actual sample or other similar sample in our factory, and would report back to you.

The difference between TZR-SC and TZR-SH

on February 4, 2021

We are often asked about what are the differences between [ TZR-SC model ] and [ TZR-SH model ] , so I’m showing the differences here on this blog today.

First of all, please take a look at the following photo.

Photo of 2 models of our products

 

TZR-SC is Pressio flag-ship model, and it consists of the main body, the jogger catch tray (Red circle), and the integrated lifter (Green circle).

On the other hand, TZR-SH is Pressio standard model, and it consists of the main body and the simple catch tray (Brown circle).

 

With regard to TZR-SC,
—————————————–

#1
On the jogger catch tray, the collated sample sets are aligned automatically and transferred to the integrated lifter, and then the sets are raised by the lifter.

—————————————–

#2
While the collated samples sets are aligned and raised, the main machine continues collating, so it won’t affect your collating lead-time.

—————————————–

#3
It has 6 types, like 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, and 25 trays .
(All types include folding function tray which makes Outer jacket (wrapper paper))

—————————————–

#4
TZR-SC can adapt to the following 2 sizes of sample set.
– A4 size (210 × 297mm / 8.27 × 11.69 in)
– B4 size (257 × 364mm / 10.12 × 14.33 in)

It your sample paper size are not the above sizes, we would like to suggest TZR-SH model.

Please refer to the following YouTube video.

 
 

With regard to TZR-SH, 

—————————————–

#5
It has 9 types, like 6, 8, 11, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, and 25 trays.

—————————————–

#7
It can be connected with the external lifter as an optional machine.

—————————————–

Please refer to the following YouTube video.

 

 
 
 

—————————————–
#8
TZR-SH without the lifter can adapt to the sample sized as follows,
– The minimum size: 100 × 148mm / 3.93 × 5.82 in
– The maximum size: 340 × 450mm / 13.38 × 17.71 in


TZR-SH with the lifter can adapt to the sample sized as follows,
– The minimum size: 210 × 297mm / 8.27 × 11.69 in
– The maximum size: 340 × 450mm / 13.38 × 17.71 in
