Druckhaus Wittich gets upgrades from QIPC
German printing company Druckhaus Wittich is having two of its presses upgraded using automation systems from Dutch firm Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC). The two companies have worked together before, as Druckhaus owns other presses fitted with QIPC automation systems. In the current upgrade, one press will get a replacement to its existing QIPC system and another will change over to QIPC.
A manroland CROMOMAN printing press with five towers, dating to 2002 and located in Fohren in southwest Germany, will be fitted with a new mRC-3D system for color control and cut-off control. The ten cameras will replace the old QIPC IRS system. “They are aiming to bring about reductions in waste as well as to improve the quality of their printing,” said QIPC director of international sales and marketing Jaco Bleijenberg of Druckhaus Wittich’s aims with the upgrade.
The second mRC-3D system for color register and cut-off control will be fitted onto a manroland CROMOMAN press dating to 1999. This press currently uses a register system supplied by another company, to be replaced by the mRC-3D system.
