I am considering purchasing an inkjet press. What time frame should I expect from the initial delivery to the point where I'm able to print customer jobs?

The installation and training time frame depends on the complexity of the configuration and size of the device, but generally most current installations take about three to four weeks. The first week or two is generally unpacking and installing the RIP, press, and related components. By the third week, there are printed sheets coming out of the delivery of the press and initial operator training will commence. It's wise to have a few customer jobs ready to go as part of the implementation process, so that real-world examples can be incorporated into the training process.
