Kroonpress chooses new press automation from Q.I. Press Controls

The Estonian print company Kroonpress has equipped their Goss M600 heat set press with Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) press automation. Kroonpress is preparing the recently acquired press for the future, they want to keep the M600 in use for another 10 years. "We think that QIPC provides the most modern solutions for our specific needs."

Second life
A press does not have to be new to function in accordance with the requirements and standards of 2019. With the right measuring and control equipment, even older presses can produce cost-effectively, consistently and reliably. It is in this belief that Kroonpress is equipping their recently acquired Goss M600 heat set press with new QIPC automation. "The automation that was still on the press from the former user is no longer up to date and technical support is limited," says Gerd Lindmaa, Production Director at Kroonpress. "New systems like those from QIPC offer more speed and accuracy."
Existing user
Kroonpress has known for some time what QIPC's systems are capable of. Since 2013, the automation of the company from Oosterhout has been used in Estonia. "We are a satisfied user", continues Gerd Lindmaa. "We appreciate the experiences of the existing cooperation with QIPC. We have found that QIPC provides the most modern solutions for our specific needs." The visits to the reference sites in Baarle-Nassau and Mouscron confirmed the positive opinion of Kroonpress.
Heat set press
The specific need in this case is the automation of a heat set press. On the Goss M600, 5 mRC-3D cameras for colour register, cut-off register and sheeter-register are installed and 2 IDS-3D cameras for colour control. Gerd Lindmaa: "We count on more stable print quality and less paper waste thanks to faster start-ups. In general, we expect higher efficiency in the use of our raw materials."
Long term
The result of the installation is a more modern, efficient and faster press for Kroonpress that is ready for the next ten years. "We are intensifying our cooperation now, because we are counting on QIPC to be a long-term partner", says Gerd Lindmaa, "QIPC will continue to invest and innovate, which will provide us with a system that will remain up-to-date in the future". Erwin van Rossem (Director of Global Sales & Marketing QIPC) is delighted about the near and longer future: "The fact that they are choosing our systems again is the greatest sign of appreciation we can get. We have the right solution for Kroonpress and are proud that we can continue to deliver to them."
