Kalptaru Offset, Natraj Print House, Saraswati Press, Hexagon Print & Pack and Sanat Printers are five new Indian partners with whom Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) will collaborate. The Dutch specialist in measuring and control equipment for the printing industry supplies Indian printers with various mRC-3D systems for color register control.

Rakesh Dave, managing director of QIPC-EAE India, emphasizes the versatility of QIPC’s automation systems. “Every press and printing company is different, of course,” he explains. “These orders also involve three different types of machines. For each specific installation, we will really deliver custom work. These orders show once again that QIPC systems can be integrated in any type of web offset press.”

Kalptaru Offset

In Ahmedabad, an mRC-3D system for color register and cut-off control is installed on a TPH Orient press. In total, two cameras are involved. Kalptaru will print fewer wasted copies, work more efficiently and deliver higher quality prints thanks to QIPC’s innovative system.

Natraj Print House

Natraj Print House, also based in Ahmedabad, will also equip its Pressline press with an mRC-3D system for color register and cut-off control. This also involves two cameras. As with Kalptaru Offset, these will be installed by QIPC and the staff will receive technical training on site.

Saraswati Press

The order Saraswati Press placed with QIPC consists of four different projects, all of which will be carried out at the Kolkata printing plant. Four of these are two color register mRC-3D cameras installed on a NAPH Graphics press. “Our systems are already installed on several NAPH presses,” says Dave. “That turns out to be a successful combination and hence this new order.”

Hexagon Print & Pack

This print shop in Mumbai has an mRC-3D color register system installed on a TPH Orient press. The first priority of this quality printer from the Bombay region is to further improve the quality of their printing. In addition, the QIPC system will contribute to a reduction in the number of lost copies and a more efficient production process.

Sanat Printers

Sanat Printers from Sonipat already has experience with QIPC systems. The good reputation of the Dutch company also contributed to Sanat Printers having a new mRC-3D system for color register and cut-off control installed on its Harris M600 press. The printer wants to save on the number of lost copies and is convinced of the high technology used by QIPC.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
