QIPC-EAE presents Smart Pre-setting system and multi-sectional control at WPE 2019

Oosterhout, August 2019 - Want to know all about Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) smart ink key and damp pre-setting system? Or learn how Engineering Automation Electronics (EAE)'s innovative multi-sectional control allows you to operate your press with a single desk instead of 4? Then visit the World Publishing Expo 2019 (WPE) at the QIPC-EAE booth.

Smart Pre-setting
Every printer wants to get the best out of his machine. But finding the optimal measurement and control values for both the ink keys and the damping solution manually can be quite a task. QIPC's Smart Pre-setting system automates this accurate and time-consuming work thanks to innovative self-learning software. The system has already been successfully rolled out in several printing plants. "In general, we can say that after a week of production with Smart Pre-setting, we achieve an accuracy that is 20 percent higher than with conventional systems," explains QIPC Director Menno Jansen. "Depending on the type of press and production, this can be as much as 40 percent. This results in considerable savings in terms of time and waste."  

Ink keys

The Smart Pre-setting system is self-learning. Based on TIFF files, the ink keys of the press are set for the first time. The system then quickly analyses the results of a production and decides, on the basis of the pre-sets used, what adjustments may need to be made in order to optimise production. "by use of detailed reports, we can see how good the pre-set was and how much room there is for improvement," says Menno Jansen. "We are only satisfied when the maximum out of a press has been achieved."  

Dampening control

Dampening control is also intelligently set up by the Smart Pre-setting system. In doing so, the system itself takes into account production information that influences the pre-set, such as the web width and hot or cold printing units. The self-learning pre-set system is of great value for printers working with different press lines, such as NZME (Read article Oct 2018). Thanks to Smart Pre-setting, printing companies can achieve savings in time, work more efficiently and improve the quality of their printing products.  

Desk 7 & Tablet 7

In the past, as many as 4 control desks were sometimes necessary to operate a single folder. QIPC automation systems make it possible to control a single folder with one control desk. Desk 7, EAE's latest control desk, even allows 2 folders to be controlled by one desk. De Persgroep Printing in Amsterdam, among others, are successfully using Desk 7. The efficiency savings lie in the combination of QIPC's automation systems and their full integration into EAE's modern control desk in combination with Tablet 7. Tablet 7 enables operators to take over the entire machine control remotely. Menno Jansen: "Thanks to the automation, the printer is truly a process operator. Because he no longer has to deal with the printing process, he can monitor the 2-folder process at the same time."  

WPE 2019

The QIPC-EAE staff will be happy to explain more about Smart Pre-setting, Desk 7 and Tablet 7 at WPE 2019. You can find them in Hall 21A stand E13.
