How many A3 pictures can be framed per hour using CMC on average with one person operating start from finish ?

That depends on the rest of the equipment and how skilled the operator is on all of it, plus mounting the prints, fitting hardware, sealing etc etc. On a good day I'd be looking at 20 mins for one frame with mount undermount and all sealed up ready to hang, but maybe 5 per hour and TBH it wouldn't be that much longer with a manual mount cutter.

We supply a company with just mounts for their online shop and can fire out 500 A3 mounts a day if we really get going on a Wizard 9000.
Once the template is made it's a question of one operator loading the board and stacking the mounts.
