Mapping the material losses in a cement bags manufacturing company revealed that losses of ink and solvents occur mainly at the end of each production batch due to ink leftovers in the machine that are removed by solvents. Reducing the feed tray size, the volume of feed tubes, and the dead volume in the ink trough significantly reduces the quantity of ink leftovers, and the required solvent quantity.
