Press release from the issuing company
QuadTech announces the sale of 15 QuadTech Autotron Newspaper 2800 Register Guidance Systems to The Times of India, The Tribune Trust, Jagran and the Printers Mysore Newspapers. The QuadTech systems will be installed on 15 new Manugraph Highline presses recently ordered by these newspapers.
Pradeep Shah, Managing Director of Manugraph said, “QuadTech offers us the perfect solution to optimize the performance of our presses. QuadTech’s high standards are identical to those of Manugraph. The integration of the two technologies will mean that our customers have ultimate quality control over what they print.”
The focus on print quality by the four newspapers is reflected by the investment in the latest presses from Manugraph. The Times of India has ordered nine Manugraph Highline 45 Presses incorporating the latest QuadTech Autotron Newspaper 2800 Register Guidance Systems.
The Tribune Trust will take delivery of three Manugraph Cityline Express presses fitted with QuadTech Autotron Newspaper 2800 Register Guidance Systems. Jagran will take one QuadTech System and The Printers Mysore will take Two QuadTech systems.
“In addition to enhancing print quality, the QuadTech systems provide another key advantage,” states Pradeep. “India is a market with one of the highest consumption levels. By integrating register controls into the new presses, our customers will be easily meet the international targets for wastage.”
The Autotron’s ability to reduce makeready, so that good copies are produced within approximately 400 turns of the press, is a key factor in their choice by Manugraph.
“Shorter make readies not only mean less waste but also faster job changeover times, which translates into improved customer value. The Autotron systems will allow our customers to save both time and money, reducing the payback period for their investment.”
Comprehensive customer support was also a key factor in the choice of the QuadTech solution. Pradeep Shah continues, “QuadTech’s global network and outstanding customer service compliments our company’s vision and also the market need. It strikes the perfect balance for us, supporting our own philosophy of global reach, delivered locally. Our success is based on cultivating partnerships of the highest standard, and QuadTech has been our only partner in register controls for over five years now.”
Manugraph plans to further expand its global appeal and increase its business by 50% in the next year, whilst also trebling overseas sales. It has a full order book for the next 12 months and produces over 70 press units per month.
“Manugraph’s dedication to the success of its customers is identical to QuadTech, whose development of products and services is designed specifically to provide a positive impact on ‘bottom line’ performance. We treat our presses like aircraft. When you take off, you always want to land safely. The QuadTech Autotron systems provide this capability,” concludes Pradeep.
