Now that an installation at the Newsquest printing site in Oxford has reached the goals set out, the British media group, owned by Gannett, is investing again in measurement and control equipment from Netherlands-based Q.I. Press Controls. In conjunction with Koenig & Bauer, automatic cut-off and color-register and closed-loop color and damp control are being installed at a Glasgow site.
K&B is supervising the project. A mRC-3D system (11 cameras) for cut-off control and IDS-3D (12 cameras) for color and register control are being installed on a K&B Colora press.
The K&B Colora has considerable room for growth in terms of the number of unusable copies produced by the press. There are also improvements to be made regarding efficiency in Glasgow.
