The article focuses on the effects of technological innovations and electronics designed for production efficiency. The author mentioned the Bobst machine control's CUBE unit, wherein the system reduce makeready times, quicken production, improve performance and consistency and assist with troubleshooting. He notes that probably the most forward looking application of electronic in the modern lines is the way it can be interfaced to make communication routes and workflows.
