Imaging Technologies, Inc. (I-TECH, www.i-technologies-inc.com) I-TECH and KT Web Printing Ltd. (Toronto, Canada) have formed an alliance to install the first I-TECH automatic register control system in Canada. KT Web Printing, a cold-set web printer, has been specializing in printing newspapers and magazines in Toronto, Canada since 1983. I -TECH’s automatic register control system will be installed on KT Web’s existing Ventura 4-High presses beginning in December and will go live in January 2010.
Thomas Kim, President of KT Web Printing Ltd., says, “I-TECH’s impressive software interface, online support and troubleshooting, and almost invisible registration dots compelled us to really examine I-TECH’s advanced system. Their highly competitive pricing and guarantees, as well as their friendly staff, helped make our decision easier.”
Bill Brandenburg, I-TECH’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, says, “The KT Web partnership allows us an opportunity to provide register motorization on their 4-High’s as well as give them a state-of-the-art productivity solution. Having a Canadian demo facility will also help us in our expansion efforts in the greater North America.”
Imaging Technologies, Inc. and Richner Communications, Inc. (Garden City, NY) also have partnered to put the first I-TECH automatic register control system on the East Coast. The I-TECH closed loop, automatic register control system will be installed on Richner’s existing DGM 430 press in January 2010 and will go live in February. Stuart Richner, President of Richner Communications, Inc., says, “We chose the I-TECH register system after a thorough investigation of the alternatives. The I-TECH system’s advanced technology, ease of use, and nearly undetectable register marks—coupled with its team of dedicated, attentive personnel—gave I-TECH the edge over competing products. The fact that the system is extremely well priced, and offers excellent guarantees and online support, made our decision that much easier.”
Bill Brandenburg, added, “We are excited to have Richner as a partner in this project. Richner will receive lowered make-ready waste and time as well as helping their “Green” profile. At the same time, I-TECH will get another first class demo site to bring in other prospective printers.” Brandenburg also points out that “We now have our equipment on heatset, coldset, and UV presses at newspapers as well as commercial printers. Furthermore, if we combine these two orders with our existing customer base, it gives us 22 webs of register, ribbon, and/or cut-off control on 9 different presses at 6 sites. That’s a pretty impressive record for a company who installed their first system just 18 months ago.”
