Oosterhout – Over the last year, India-based printing concern D B Corp Ltd. (Dainik Bhaskar), having dailies in 3 languages, has placed no fewer than five different orders with Q.I. Press Controls - Engineering Automation Electronics (QIPC-EAE). Various printing presses in Aurangabad, Bhopal (two orders), Noida and Shivdaspura have been fitted out with systems from QIPC-EAE, the Dutch specialist in measurement and control equipment. “We’re delighted with the technical support from QIPC-EAE,” was the resounding verdict. “And we’re already looking forward to intensifying our partnership in the future.”
D B Corp Ltd. and QIPC-EAE have been working together since 2008. A number of the former’s printing presses have been fitted with QIPC-EAE systems. “Our presses operate extremely efficiently with QIPC-EAE automation systems,” says Mr. R.D. Bhatnagar, Chief Technology Officer at D B Corp Ltd. He explains why his company is so satisfied with the collaboration and the reason behind its decision to have several other presses equipped with QIPC-EAE systems. “Not only do the systems reduce waste in the start-up, our newspaper editions can be printed much more quickly and with improved and consistent quality.”
At the start of the year, D B Corp Ltd. ordered a mRD-3D system for colour register on its Manugraph M360 press in Shivdaspura. The order consisted of 16 cameras, installed to bring about savings in paper and to raise quality. The same system was ordered for two similar presses in Bhopal, where the mRC-3D system was made up of 14 cameras. Likewise in Noida, an mRC-3D system for colour register, this time including 12 cameras, was ordered for the plant’s Prakash Newsline 36 press. Finally, in Aurangabad, an order for 12 mRC-3D cameras for colour register was placed for its Manugraph M360 press. All the systems mentioned are fitted with optional Automatic Ink Mist Shields (AIMS) for cleaning the lenses.
D B Corp Ltd. has the same objectives in mind for all its sites, according to Mr. Dinesh Sharma, Vice President of Production. “Our aim is to bring about time savings in the colour register process. We also want to print more accurately as well as minimise the amount of waste.” More importantly however, is the fact that we can deliver enhanced quality thanks to the QIPC-EAE systems, which give us vastly improved reliability”.
The partnership between D B Corp Ltd. and QIPC-EAE was already intense and, thanks to these five orders, will only be strengthened. “Not only are we satisfied by the systems themselves, we highly value the technical support and service,” concludes Mr. R.D. Bhatnagar. QIPC-EAE works hard at keeping its partners happy. “Our partnership shares common goals,” reflects Mr. Vijay Pandya, Managing Director of QIPC-EAE India. “We’re absolutely delighted that D B Corp Ltd. can now achieve its business objectives of better quality and efficiency more easily thanks to our solutions and the local support we offer.”
