Press extensions and upgrades are keeping control systems developer QI Press Controls busy in India.
Orient presses at Amar Ujala in Noida and Kanpur are being extended and the Dutch company is also to install its colour registration technology at Chitralekha Printers and Publishers in Navi Mumbai.
Growth in colour demand sees four-tower TPH Orient 45000 X-Cel presses in Noida and Kanpur being extended, each with a fifth tower. Both presses had been equipped with QI’s IRS register control, and the company will now install additional mRC+ cameras on both presses.
A leading regional newspaper in Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh Uttarakhand as well as New Delhi, ‘Amar Ujala’ was founded 1948 in the early days of Indian independence. Its readership of 30 million people is served by editorial systems connecting chief and subordinate editors and a network of printing plants, also demanded by road network limitations.
At Chitralekha Printers and Publishers, a Manuline S16 heatset press is being upgraded with QI’s mRC+ cameras following the failure of an existing system.
