India Raises Capacity and Quality of Newspaper and Magazine Printing with Q.I. Press Controls
Posted: 8/7/2012 | By: Press Release | Q.I. Press Controls
The Indian Amar Ujala newspaper publishing group increases its coldset newspaper presses, requiring additional mRC+ cameras.
Q.I. Press Controls India received some considerable expansion orders from Amar Ujala’s printers in Noida and Kanpur in view of additional printing towers to be added to the current presses. This is a very positive trend! After all, it means an increase in page scope for more advertisers.
In Noida, the Orient 45000 X-Cel with four 4-high printing towers will be expanded with a fifth printing tower. The same procedure applies to Kanpur for the Orient 36000 X-Cel. A fifth printing tower will be added there as well. Both presses had been equipped with IRS for full-color register control. Q.I. Press Controls will install additional mRC+ cameras on both presses in order to control the color register of the additional full-color printing web on either side.
‘Amar Ujala’ is also the title of the regional newspaper printed in Hindi. It is a leading newspaper in the regions of Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh Uttarakhand as well as New Delhi. ‘Amar Ujala’ was founded on 19 April 1948, in the early period of Indian independence. The elevated objective such as promoting social awareness and creating a sense of responsibility among the population is still characteristic for this newspaper, which is read by some thirty million people and which appears simultaneously in many places. The latter is thanks to the modern communication between the chief and subordinate editors and the network of the printing plants located close to the reading centers. The spread of printing plants is needed due to the Indian road network and its limitations. The restrictions of the Indian road network also require additional attention from manufacturers and suppliers in terms of the service they provide. Mainly single-width/single-circumference) (2/1) coldset web-offset presses are used. THP (The Printers House) is an important supplier for this and is always represented at the Drupa exhibitions, including 2012.

A reliable service and positive relations yielded Q.I. Press Controls a great order for the delivery of mRC+ on Chitralekha's heatset press; a Manuline S16
Chitralekha’s heatset web-offset press had been running for a few years when Q.I. Press Controls India was instructed to install an automatic color register system: a great order to equip that Manuline with mRC+ color register technology for the perfecting register. Q.I. Press Controls India was awarded this order as a previously installed register system failed due to poor servicing. You must be able to implicitly rely on manufacturing support for the color register system, certainly in a country such as India. Truth is that this specific service cannot be provided by the local press manufacturers, yet is provided to the client/users of the register system directly. Q.I. Press Controls never loses sight of that direct provision of service. The more so since Q.I. Press Controls is aware of the crucial importance of this to clients who have to meet ever-increasing quality requirements on a daily basis.
