    Thank you for the reply
    I am the owner of the company

    It is basically the new operating hourly rate for the machine on a sm 74 compared to the smaller sm 52

    Thank you

    Hi fileman .
    it is normal when you change format the rate changes and since you want to buy a larger machine therefore the costs of the difference in shape are also added the cost of different spare parts, longer filling rolls and larger diameter big more or less therefore it influences the rate but in my opinion there are more advantages than disadvantages if you take a large format machine, you save time, fixed costs and you gain in speed and quantity also the technology makes the work easier for the operator this reflects directly on productivity. Good luck
