MCLAREN PRESS GRAPHICS REJUVENATES DGM PRESS WITH MRC-3D CLOSED-LOOP FULL-COLOR REGISTER FROM Q.I. PRESS CONTROLS - McLaren Press Graphics
Oosterhout, March 2014 - Q.I. Press Controls North America management is delighted with a key order from McLaren Press Graphics, a leading commercial printer based in Bracebridge , Ontario, Canada. Q.I. Press Controls is pleased to announce the recent sale of the advanced, latest generation closed-loop mRC-3D full-color register system complete with cut-off controls for McLaren's DGM430 coldset single-width press line.
For McLaren Press Graphics
this investment replaces their existing register system, which did not include cut-off controls.
Drew McLaren, President of McLaren Press Graphics:
"We were one of the first commercial printers to install registration controls on a non-heatset press back in the 1990's, and we recognized the ROI immediately.
Given the relatively high cost of this technology at the time, we still experienced significant cost savings to justify this investment.
This was achieved despite the fact that we were running lower cost uncoated substrates than typical heat-set installations, who were the first companies to invest in this technology because they were running higher cost coated stocks yielding greater savings and quicker ROI's".
With Q.I. Press Controls' mRC-3D they wanted to resolve their cut-off waste issues while taking advantage of the new camera technology to further enhance their quality process and improve their waste numbers.
: "Originally we didn't realize how different the product was from other brands on the market.
wanted was an all-in-one, cost effective, state-of-the-art solution for their coldset application.
They needed to look no further than Q.I Press Controls' mRC-3D register system.
The mRC-3D's depth-scanning principle is ideal for their DGM430 press configuration, which has some fairly long web leads.
The mRC-3D functions perfectly in such an environment.
: "Q.I. Press Controls
will allow us to close the loop on our press controls as our current system does not address the bottleneck of manual cut-off controls.
We had been looking for a system that would address this weak link in our automation and Q.I. Press Controls'
mRC-3D system will allow us to now include this component, while addressing registration controls that perform quicker and provide better feedback to our press operators."
coldset production line is a DGM430 with a 89 cm (35") web width and 57.8 cm (22 ¾") cut-off.
employs a staff of 55 employees and has a separate division for digital publishing and online revenue generating products for their publishing clients.
