Oosterhout – The innovative mRC-3D-system of Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) helps printers worldwide to realise savings in waste and to make the life of their employees easier. QIPC, the Dutch specialist in measure- and control equipment, recently received an order from the Indian printer Pudhari Publications in Kolhapur, that will use the mRC-3D-system in their own printing plant and from Sigmarq Technologies, an Indian press builder, who will install the mRC-3D-system on a press that’s been built up in Kenya.
The mRC-3D-system for colour register is unique in the world. It has the fastest camera in the world and is able to measure accurately, regardless of the focus distance and the distortions of the web. As a result, the response time remains very limited and large waste savings can be realised. By equipping the system with double sensors, the possibilities become twice as large and depth can be handled with more efficiently. This is very important in case of flutter, waves and/or creases in the webs.
Pudhari Publications has been familiar with the QIPC systems for some time: the most recent order fits into a long-term cooperation. Pudhari Publications benefits from the above-mentioned features of the mRC-3D-system. “The cost for printing plants are constantly increasing and we were looking for a way to keep them under control”, explains Managing Director Dr. Yogesh Jadav of Pudhari Publications on why he has partnered with QIPC before. “Thanks to QIPC we can realise savings in waste and simplify our production.”
Sigmarq is an emerging Indian press builder, who sees the advantages of the QIPC-systems and therefore likes to install them on their presses. “Sigmarq is growing”, says Rakeshkumar Dave, Managing Director of QIPC India. “In the near future , for example, they want to launch a new highspeed newspaper press. Our strong relationship with them, offers us the possibility to grow along with them. “ The four mRC-3D-cameras that Sigmarq has ordered now, will be installed on a press in the Kenyan capital Nairobi. “That gives us an immediate entry into the growing African market”, realises Rakeshkumar Dave.
More efficient operation
The goals Sigmarq is pursuing with the installation of the mRC-3D-system for colour register are the same as for Pudhari Publications and all those other satisfied users: waste savings and a more efficient operation of the press. Rakeshkumar Dave: “Thanks to the mRC-3D-system, the user will get maximum control over the consumption of paper, ink and energy. In addition, higher quality printed material can be delivered and the accuracy and speed of the production process is increased thanks to the fully automated system.”
