Q.I. Press Controls Enters into Serbian Collaboration

Press release from the issuing company

Oosterhout – The Serbia-based printing concern of Color Press Group is to install automation systems from Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) on its presses. The heatset printer is investing in the mRC-3D system for color register and cut-off control supplied by the Dutch specialist in measurement and control equipment for the printing industry. “Excellent references, flexibility and a willingness on its part to meet our specific requirements were what clinched it for us.”

Quality improvements
Color Press Group has printing presses which belong to the previous generation. To get these operating at optimum capacity, the management considered an upgrade and update in automation an absolute necessity. “It’s a fiercely competitive market out there,” explains Executive Director Zoran Tovjanin of Color Press Group, which carries out about 40% of its work for external clients. “For that reason it’s vital that we can deliver the best quality print. In addition to savings in efficiency, we expect the new QIPC system to bring about major quality improvements. This will give us a competitive edge over our rivals.”

Positive references
In opting for QIPC’s mRC-3D system for color and cut-off control, the reference visit at Grafoprodukt, based like Color Press Group in Novi Sad, played a key role. “They spoke highly about their partnership with us,” says QIPC’s Head of Sales, Erwin van Rossem. Zoran Tovjanin endorses that: “In the first place, the excellent references convinced us to work with QIPC.” The personal contact and willingness on the part of QIPC to make changes simply confirmed this choice: “There was flexibility and a preparedness to adapt to our needs.”

Alleviating operators
In total, 4 mRC-3D cameras for color register and 2 mRC-3D cameras for cut-off control were installed on the Manroland Rotoman D press. The aim is to limit register waste to 500 revolutions, to restrict overall paper waste by 40%, and to enhance the quality of the printed matter. Zoran Tovjanin: “What’s more, an upgrade of older machinery is always going to alleviate the work carried out by our staff. Their work will become easier.”

Balkan region
For QIPC, this new collaboration with the second largest printing concern in Serbia opens up the possibility of the company establishing itself more firmly in the Balkan region. The Dutch specialist in measurement and control systems for the printing industry is making ever deeper inroads into the region. “Our aim is to capture a larger share of the market here,” explains Erwin van Rossem. “In Color print, we have absolute confidence of adding another satisfied customer to our portfolio, just like Grafoprodukt before them. It is precisely that satisfaction that is important for our further growth in the Balkans.”
