Oosterhout, March 2015  - Mayr Miesbach has plumped for a Q.I. Press Controls’ system after purchasing a KBA heatset printing press. Mayr Miesbach was, after some persuasive talking, won over by the advantages of the mRC-3D and the new IDS-3D. These new systems from Q.I. Press Controls enable Mayr Miesbach to guarantee high standards of quality and reduce waste. “From a technological point of view, these systems are helping us to forge ahead. We are now able to use of state-of-the-art technology,” according to Erwin Erler, print manager at Mayr Miesbach GmbH.

According to the Environment certificate for climate initiatives, Mayr Miesbach’s production processes are carbon-neutral, it has the EU Ecolabel for sustainability and the EINSER – AZUBI accreditation for the training of its personnel, just to mention a few.

When he purchased the KBA C217 press, Mayr Miesbach had among others the environment and quality in focus. The organisation fell into conversation with Arslan Miftachoglu, managing director of Q.I. Press Controls Germany, about an automated system for the printing press. Miftachoglu was able to convince Erler that the new technologies of Q.I. Press Controls would provide Mayr Miesbach with additional benefits. “Taking into account the environment and general quality, opting for the mRC-3D and the IDS-3D was the most logical decision to make,” explains Miftachoglu. “In Mayr Miesbach’s case these systems will ensure a uniform standard of high quality and a marked reduction in waste and ink consumption.”

The order placed with Q.I. Press Controls is for a fully automated solution consisting of 2 mRC-3D colour register cameras with AIMS and anti-embossing, 3 mRC-3D cut-off register cameras with AIMS, sidelay and remote control and 2 IDS-3D colour control cameras with RAS. The system will be installed on the aforementioned KBA C217 commercial printing press with 5 printing units and 1 folder. Erler adds: “This gives us an improved start-up period, lower production costs, more effective and exacter quality control and a faster cut-off control.” In this way, he believes, the system is able create an easy-to-use, reliable and low-maintenance printing press for Mayr Miesbach.

Miftachoglu goes on to explain that the order is also down to a good working partnership with KBA. It was thanks to them that he found out that Mayr Miesbach was looking to purchase the press. Mayr Miesbach expects that the planning for the start-up period will be smooth and professional. “Even after the start-up period,” he elaborates, “we want a our electricians to undergo a thorough introduction to the sytems and for our operators to get proper training. We expect that Q.I. Press Controls will be able to step in at a moment’s notice if there are any sudden problems, remotely or otherwise.” Miftachoglu expects a fruitful partnership with the company: “We will continue to offer an excellent service and I hope that customers like Mayr Miesbach in Germany will also be able to show that automatic solutions from Q.I. Press Controls can suit any kind of organisation.”
