Jul 27, 2008 at 06:44 pm by Staff

QI Press Controls has sold its closed-loop control system to North American printing giant Transcontinental for two new triple-wide manroland Colorman XXL lines totalling 17 towers. Transcontinental is the largest printer in Canada and the sixth-largest in North America, as well as being a major publisher. In Anjou, Montreal, two press lines, each of which has satellite units and a UV dryer, will be used to print high quality semicommercial work. QI will install six touch screens, 16 IDS markless closed loop colour control scanners and 12 of the new mRC scanners launched at DRUPA, for cut-off and side lay control running with one set of micro marks.Information is gathered on a web-based IQM quality information system, and the QI systems are fully integrated with manroland’s PECOM to create a ‘hands-off’ operation which starts when a job is loaded with all scanners. In San Francisco, where three three-tower presses use four-high towers with a hot air dryer on each line, QI will install 18 IDS markless closed loop colour control scanners and 18 mRC scanners. gx
