Indian newspaper printer and press manufacturer upbeat about QIPC mRC-3D
The innovative mRC-3D register management system of Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) helps printers worldwide in saving waste and making the life of their employees easy. The Dutch specialist in measure and control equipment gains new ground in the Indian market, receiving orders from printers and web offset press manufacturers alike.
Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) has recently received an order for mRC-3D camera from Pudhari Publications in Kolhapur. The newspaper printing house produces the popular Marathi daily Pudhari published from Maharashtra, Goa and North Karnataka. The newspaper is largest is circulated Marathi daily in Western Maharashtra and third-largest in Maharashtra. In the state, the newspaper has different editions for all major districts including Mumbai, Pune, Kolhapur, Sangli, Satara, Nasik, Solapur, Ahmadnagar, Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg, Belgaum, Thane, Raigad, Aurangabad, Marathawad and Jalana.
The QIPC mRC-3D-system for colour register is unique in the world. It features the fastest camera capable 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 saving 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 latest order of QIPC mRC-3D-system for its Kolhapur plant fits into a long-term cooperation. The newspaper printer benefits from the above-mentioned features of the mRC-3D-system. “The costs for printing plants are constantly increasing and we were looking for a way to keep them under control,” explains Dr Yogesh Jadav, Managing Director of Pudhari Publications Pvt Ltd. On their partnership with QIPC, he adds, “Thanks to QIPC, we can realise saving in waste and simplify our production.”
SIGMARQ Technologies, one of promising web offset press manufacturers in India, has installed mRC-3D-systems in most of its presses being installed in the leading newspaper houses across the country. Latest order of the register management system made by SIGMARQ is for a press in Kenya. SIGMARQ is an emerging web offset manufacturer that sees the advantages of QIPC mRC-3D-system, which they like to install them on their presses. “Almost all our presses sold to Jagran Group are equipped with mRC-3D systems,” says Rajesh Ghorpade, Managing Director, SIGMARQ Technologies.
