Service agreement

Instead of having an service engineer working on your press once a problem occurs; choose for a service agreement and prevent those problems from happing.

Preventive maintenance is conducted to keep equipment working and/or extend the life of the
equipment. Maintenance can make or break a good product. Proper maintenance will reduce
unexpected down time and makes your production more reliable. Regular maintenance will
prevent potential problems and keeps the costs lower and more predictable.
DG press ServiceS has a team of well-educated and experienced service engineers. Years of
experience have made them the specialists in the field of web offset printing presses.

Technical support and maintenance of the press needs to be executed on three levels:

  1. First line maintenance consists of cleaning, inspection of roller condition, exchange of inking rollers and regularly stripe adjustments according to the service manual. This task is executed by the customer’s print crew.
  2. Second line maintenance consist of fault finding and repair of parts and components in case of functional problems and periodical systematical preventive maintenance inspections. Inspections will be carried out according a detailed checklist.
  3. Third line maintenance consist of overhaul and revision of components, extensive inspection and replacement of critical parts. Normally executed once every 5 years.

A service agreement covers the activities for 2nd line maintenance.

Regardless the number of machines and coverage, DG press adjusts the maintenance contract tailor made to your wishes and demands.

Roller exchange program

DG press executes de renewal of your compounded rollers on a regular base and combines this with a free inspection of your printing units.

Based on a mutual agreed planning, we come by with a new compounded roller set. During our fist visit we will exchange the rollers and bearings of the first printing unit. We will take the old rollers with us to let them be recompounded. This “new recompounded set” will then be used during our second visit to exchange the rollers of the second unit. This will be repeated until all units are done. We will take care of the recompounding with the compound quality of several high quality suppliers.

During the visit we will fully inspect the printing unit and you will obtain a full inspection report and maintenance advice. The exchange program will be tailor made to your wishes.
