Q.I. Press Controls unveils Miracle Camera at drupa 2012

Once again Q.I. Press Controls demonstrates its capacity for innovation! During the Drupa 2012 print media fair in Düsseldorf, this world-renowned manufacturer of highly advanced quality control technology reveals its most recent development for web offset presses: the mRC-3D detection camera.

The mRC-3D detection camera has now been equipped with double sensors and automatic self-cleaning. This means an extra gain in efficiency for users! Heat-set and cold-set rotary printing are high-speed processes in which quality and customer satisfaction come down to nanoseconds; misregister and/or colour deviations are no longer accepted in the battle for the reader/consumer. In order to achieve this and meet the need for the highest efficiency, Q.I. Press Controls’ engineers have developed this new generation of automated detection.

The double-sensor technology not only doubles the possibilities but can also cope more effectively with depth; which is the reason for the 3D designation for mRC’s latest detection camera. This concept proves its great added value particularly well in case of unsteady paper web routings and/or surfaces.

Since detection cameras in production processes can become obscured, this would usually require printing personnel to carry out cleaning. Now, this is no longer needed! The Automatic Ink Mist Shield (AIMS) clicked into place in front of the camera rolls a new antistatic crystal-clear section of film in front of the sensors and, after fully automated calibration, the precision measurements resume undisturbed. And this without any action on the part of printing personnel, in only a few seconds, at any location on the rotary press.

The launch of the mRC-3D at drupa will be accompanied by news about version types, costs and availability. It will also emphasise how this innovative high technology contributes to reducing costs, minimising press running time and reducing downtime.

At stand A24 – Hall 17 Q.I. Press Controls is showing its full range of computerised quality control on rotary presses. It's certainly worth a visit!
