Newsprinters, QIPC collaboration on track
Collaboration between Newsprinters UK and Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC), specialists in printing industry automation systems, is continuing apace. In 2014, Dutch firm QIPC received the biggest order in its history from Newsprinters.
The order saw 134 IDS-3D cameras installed at two of Newsprinters’ sites in the UK: at Broxbourne, north of London; and at Eurocentral, close to Glasgow in Scotland. Fourteen manroland COLORMAN XXL printing presses have been equipped with QIPC’s automatic color control. “We still feel a sense of pride at landing the order,” said QIPC’s managing director Menno Jansen.
“We are constantly working with QIPC to develop new features and to raise the performance of the systems,” said Mark Ellington, Group Technical Services director at Newsprinters. “For example, QIPC have developed a special reporting button which allows us to record an incident. The data is subsequently reviewed by QIPC, who will work with us to diagnose and fix the problem.”
