BS ISO 16762:2016 pdf free.Graphic technology – Post-press – General requirements for transfer, handling and storage
All incoming packing units shall be free of damage that affects the quality and/or the processability of the goods. Incoming intermediate products and raw materials may show visual defects and or defects affecting their subsequent processability. They shall therefore be inspected with respect to obvious defects. These include surface modifications (smudging, carboning, scratches, abrasion, set off, etc.), non-flatness (waviness, curling, etc.) and damage (wrinkles, holes, etc.). Prior to processing of such damaged intermediate products, the supplier or the customer shall be informed in order to decide on further steps. This communication shall be undertaken if obvious damage is detected during or after the post-press operation or if there are difficulties encountered with the actual operation. All communication shall be documented in the job information.
Raw materials should be presented in a way to avoid unnecessary preparative operations. Materials intended for automated feeding shall all be of the same size and aligned squarely and parallel to each other on the leading edge. Specific requirements for automated feeding should be communicated prior to production.
The presentation of raw materials should be clearly identified with the relevant specification and batch numbers on the package label. This should include the quantity or weight information where appropriate. Where products or raw materials have a specific shelf life, the date of manufacture and expiry of the shelf life shall be clearly marked on the packaging.
All materials used to produce intermediate products intended to be further processed by post-press operations shall conform to the process requirements of the post-press operations used and conform to the environmental requirements applicable. The ink on all printed matter shall be dried or cured sufficiently to prevent disruption to the product being processed, e.g. marking.
Where there is more than one job on the substrate (also variable information and/or versions), clear identification of the job details should be included on the printed piece. The location of this information should be such that, after job separation, this information is easily visible. When it is not possible to put the identification information on the printed product, the job information shall contain identifying information such as a thumbnail image or principal distinguishing characteristic.BS ISO 16762 pdf free download.
