With this, Pudhari aims at improving automation on its printing presses at its plant in Kolhapur. The mRC-3D system will ensure full automation on the colour register on the Manugraph Cityline press with five towers.
Yogesh Jadhav, managing director, Pudhari Publications has helped instil a youthful, dynamic enthusiasm in the company. This wind of change blowing through the company has been partly brought about by a long overdue investment programme for press automation.
“Pudhari is a growing newspaper group,” said Vijay Pandya, managing director for QIPC in India. “Yogesh Jadhav is always coming up with ideas about how to stay ahead of the competition. Automation is just one of these.”
The mRC-3D system is aimed at fully automating the colour register in the plant at Kolhapur. The system with its high-speed cameras will bring about maximum savings in waste. The digital cameras with built-in microprocessors ensure real-time data processing of measurement data. Because of its 3D function, the mRC-3D scanner is able to accurately measure printed micro marks, independently of focal distance and irregularities in the paper web. The cameras in Kolhapur are equipped with Automation Ink Mist Shield (AIMS). As a result, the camera lenses are automatically cleaned by transported film. Staff will receive on-site training from QIPC on how to use the system.
With the help of all these systems, Pudhari Publications expects to make savings in paper, ink and energy, to improve the quality of the final product, to speed up the production process and to ramp up productivity in the plant. In addition to its print works in Kolhapur, the company has two other plants.
