Oosterhout – Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC), the Dutch specialist in measurement and control systems for the printing industry, has recently installed two of its technologically advanced systems in two more Indian printing plants. Both SAP Print Solutions in Mumbai and Sahitya Mudranalaya in Ahmedabad are extremely satisfied now that they have seen the systems up and running over the last few months. SAP has even placed a new order.

In Mumbai, two mRC-3D cameras for colour register and cut-off control were installed on a Manugraph Cityline press. “We'd already had a positive experience using QIPC’s register control on our Harris NCH 400 printing press”, says SAP's managing director Santosh Bamne, explaining why his company, which previously focused on book and commercial printing but which is now involved in the web-offset market, plumped for QIPC for the automation of its brand new printing press. “Because we're still new on the web-offset market, we wanted to offer a better quality at a competitive price. We benefitted from a more efficient printing process with better control and so decided to opt for QIPC again.”
The mRC-3D for register and cut-off control is now doing exactly what SAP expected of it. “The system has been in operation for a few months and we've not regretted our decision to buy for one moment", explains Santosh Bamne. “The goals we set ourselves with respect to savings in waste, precision of the final product and less dependency on personnel have all been attained”. The satisfaction of SAP has even led to placing a new order for mRC-3D for colour register control on their Harris NCH400 press.
Likewise two mRC-3D cameras were installed in Ahmedabad, this time for colour register and cut-off control, on a Harris NC400B book printing press. “The system has improved the quality of our printing enormously”, explains a satisfied customer. This company has a reputation for state-of-the-art equipment working at high speed and producing a reliable quality.
“As well as a greater consistency in cut-off accuracy, we have been able to achieve considerable savings in waste”, adds Sahitya Mudranalaya. “Before installing the system we would lose many copies, in particular during splice and speed changes. Now we hardly lose anything.” Operators at Sahitya Mudranalaya are also happy with how the mRC-3D system operates. “The control system is so easy to use that the operators have very little to do during the start-up phase and afterwards.”
