Q.I. Press Controls lands major order from Chinese printer
The Dutch specialist in measurement and control systems for the printing industry, Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC), is set to intensify its partnership with China-based Hunan Xinhua. In addition to the QIPC equipment already installed on its book and newspaper presses, Hunan Xinhua has now placed an order for two mRC-3Ds for automatic colour register on its new Goss book printing press. The two mRC-3Ds will be fitted with Ink Mist Shield (IMS) and a new folder will also be installed in the printing plant, which is located in the south-western city of Shaoyang.
The mRC-3Ds will enable the colour register to be controlled completely automatically on the press from now on. In terms of speed, the mRC- 3D camera is second to none and is able to give accurate measurements independently of the focal distance and irregularities in the paper web. This means extremely short response times as a result of which waste can be substantially reduced. The mRC-3D detection camera is now equipped with double sensors. The double sensor technology not only doubles the possibilities, but can also handle depth more efficiently. This concept has proven its value when it comes to unsteady paper web routings and/or surfaces. IMS ensures that the optics on the mRC-3Ds can be cleaned using removable glass.
