"We offer a total solution to press manufacturers and press users. For them, this is a part they don't really have to take into account. We solve it for them. Both press manufacturers and end users of the press want to get maximum performance from the machines. Besides the fact that Ronald Web Offset or Prakash Offset like to equip their presses with our systems, end users often ask for it themselves. They are satisfied with the performance of our systems and the support we also offer,” said Rakesh Dave, managing director of QIPC-EAE India.

For Ronald Web Offset, QIPC will supply the automation of one press that will be built in Sri Lanka. It concerns an mRC-3D system for colour register (2 cameras on 1 tower) on a Ronald semi-commercial newspaper press and the same system of 2 cameras on 1 tower on a similar press. The optics are automatically cleaned thanks to AIMS.

"The press can save on lost copies thanks to QIPC's colour register control and the print quality will be more consistent,” said Aditya Gupta, director of Ronald Web Offset.

Prakash Offset meanwhile has three projects in Bangladesh where it uses the systems of QIPC. Each project consists of an mRC-3D colour register (2 cameras on 1 tower) on a Prakash semi-commercial press.

"Our experience is that QIPC's systems save paper and improve the consistency of the print quality. But another important reason for us to work with QIPC is the ability of printers to use their staff more efficiently thanks to, among other things, the mRC-3D system,” said Saurabh Gupta, director of Prakash Offset.
