Last year, QIPC had installed 10 automation systems at the Noida-unit of Amar Ujala Publications. This year, QIPC successfully completed 25 installations in the first six months of 2017 across India.

At Agra’s Manugraph Cityline press, QIPC added 14 mRC-3D cameras for colour registration equipped with an Automatic Ink Mist Shields (AIMS) for automatic cleaning of the lenses on the Manugraph M360 press. Also, the TPH Orient press in Agra has installed two mRC-3D cameras for the colour register, fitted with AIMS.

In Lucknow, the TPH Orient 35000 press was equipped with 21 mRC-3D cameras for colour register and cut-off ribbon control with AIMS. On another TPH press, two mRC-3D cameras for colour register were installed with AIMS.

18 mRC-3D cameras for colour register and cut-off control with AIMS were installed on the TPH Orient 45000 and two mRC-3D on the extra tower of the TPH Orient. These installations took place in Noida.

21 mRC-3D installations were done at the Dehradun-based Orient Xcel press and two installations were done on the TPH Orient press in Kanpur and Moradabad, respectively.

According to the company, the mRC-3D camera is the fastest in the world and can measure the paper web accurately as well as independently of the focus distance and distortions in the paper web. This ensures a very short response time, as a result of which substantial savings can be achieved on paper insertion.
