What is Runnability

Home » EQMS » Quality Tools Overview » What is Runnability

Runnability is a term often used by printers, and refers to the ability of a sheet handle the inflexibilities of the printing process. With the speeds materials are run through the process today, there has been a lot of development to maintain a stable process without tearing or damaging the material while it is run.
The same goes for packaging machines that have become very advanced over time due to the increased complexity of packaging and required speeds. The term runnability is also used there when referring to if the machine can run with a given material at a required speed.
For example within the tobacco industry, the machines used can produce an impressive 1000 packs a minute, which is equivalent to more than 16 packs a second.
