The following is a message forwarded on behalf of Bonnie Pray.

I am currently working with a small web offset lithographic printer on a
paper waste reduction effort at his facility. The most important part of
our project is to establish baseline numbers on waste impressions. The
press is currently equipped with the Auto-Count computer system which is
supposed to measure NET impressions (Gross - waste). However, we are
questioning the accuracy of this system. What other methods/computer
systems/etc. are currently being used in the printing industry to
determine paper waste on the press. Is Auto-Count still the
best technology? Thanks for any help.
