VTT's new Komori heatset web-offset press is equipped with Q.I. Press Controls
Press release from the issuing company
December 6, 2007 - VTT Grafiska AB in Vimmerby in Sweden has decided to monitor the quality of the colour and fold register on its new Komori heatset web-offset press with Q.I. Press Controls' IRS.
VTT's Komori System 38 will be fitted with five IRS CCD cameras and the automatic cut off register system. The webs are also equipped with automatic side lay control.
With the installation of the IRS system on the Kumori press, Q. I. Press Controls makes a big move in the right direction.
The Swedish graphic industry likes to work with Komori presses. And that goes for both sheetfed and heatset web-offset presses. Komori is seen as an eco-friendly company on account of its Japanese roots. The Komori System 38 is a much coveted single-width 16 page heatset web-offset press used for magazine printing as well as every other type of web-offset printing. So it is hardly surprising that VTT Grafiska AB in Vimmerby has opted for this system.
VTT Grafiska AB is a commercial printing firm that employs a workforce of 70 people.
John Petersen, general manager VTT, emphasizes the importance of going along with the growing heatsetmarket.
That is why VTT has now invested in a state-of-the-art Komori System 38 - a 16-page heatset web-offset press with a top production speed of 60,000 copies per hour. “But production speed isn't the only thing that matters,” says John Petersen. “Above all we also wanted to be able to switch from one order to another and achieve perfect colour register as quickly as possible, given that the company itself always has to bear the cost of the excess paper and time it uses.
Q.I. Press Controls responds to this and convinced both VTT Grafiska Ab and Komori of it's IRS colour register systems which are installed successfully worldwide.
IRS improves the press quality and at the same time reduces waste.
