Waste percentages on a Digital press are based off of the total number of press sheets. On an Offset press, it is based off of press sheets per pass. • Press Sheets Up To - Used to set breaks
• Flat Overs - A flat number of overs
• Percent - Overs based on the quantity of sheets

When calculating waste, the scale does not slide. The Waste calculation is the percentage of Total Number of Press Sheets plus a Flat Number of Sheets.

• Exact matches use the listed percentage and flat sheets
• If the Quantity exceeds the maximum Quantity in the scale, the maximum Quantity is used.
• If the Quantity is below the minimum Quantity, the minimum Quantity is used.
• If the Quantity is between scales, the next highest scale is used.
• Example:

 Press Sheets Up To Flat Overs Percentage Overs 500 1 10.00 999999 40 2.00

If the number of Press Sheets = 350, the calculation would find the first Waste Scale and the calculation for overs would be:

Percentage Overs + Flat Overs = Total Overs

35 (10% of 350 Press Sheets) + 1 (Flat Overs) = 36

If the number of Press Sheets = 1000, the calculation would find the second scale because the number of Press Sheet has exceeded the Press Sheets up to the first scale.

Percentage Overs + Flat Overs = Total Overs

20 (2% of 1000 Press Sheets) + 40 (Flat Overs) = 60
