QIPC’s Intelligent Bar Sensor at LabelExpo

August 2017

- The IBS-100 (Intelligent Bar Sensor - 100 % full inspection) is the first product resulting from the acquisition of the assets of INTRO International by Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC). This unique, innovative system enables 100% full inspection and can be combined with existing register and density measurement and control software from QIPC. This means that image-based density control, colour register control and perforation, cut-off control or side-lay control of the complete image can now be done with 100% full inspection. To measure the quality in digital printing, we detect with the IBS-100 any missing jets from the print image or register mark. For the convenience of operators, via web-viewing, everything is fully visible during the printing process. The product is the first of its kind worldwide: never before has a supplier been able to combine so many functionalities in a single bar sensor. QIPC will be happy to explain about all the functionalities and possibilities that IBS-100 has to offer at LabelExpo Europe 2017 in Brussels.

Happy 21st! NZME upgrades to meet needs of a changed industry

April 2017

- A large order to refit and automate colour control on a 21-year-old newspaper press on “the other side of the world” is a special one for Q.I. Press Controls for two reasons. For one thing, it’s the classic scenario of the grand old press installed when print was king – and primarily to print a single flagship title – turned in a post-consolidation industry to produce a variety of publications with greater demands and shorter runs. And secondly, there’s a personal cachet for QIPC director Menno Jansen in delivering a much better system than the one in which – as it happens – he was involved before establishing the Netherlands-based company he now leads with Erik van Holten.
