Newsprint­ers, QIPC col­lab­o­ra­tion on track

Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Industry Installs & Upgrades -

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.”
