QIPC’S Intelligent Bar Sensor at Labelexpo

Intelligent Bar Sensor
IBS-100 Intelligent Bar Sensor - 100% full inspection system

The IBS-100 (Intelligent Bar Sensor – 100% full inspection) is the first product out of the acquisition of the assets of INTRO International by Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC). The 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, color 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, QIPC detects 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 where it combines so many functionalities in a single bar sensor. QIPC will explain about all the functionalities and possibilities that IBS-100 has to offer at Labelexpo Europe 2017 in Brussels.

Packaging print and digital print market 
With the asset acquisition of German-based INTRO International, QIPC aims to intensify its efforts in the packaging and digital printing market. The introduction of the IBS-100 represents a first concrete step. “QIPC wants to act as a partner in the packaging market and digital print,” explains Jaco Bleijenberg, international sales and marketing director at QIPC. “Measuring and controlling the quality of printed matter are inseparably linked to the automation of the process. The IBS-100 is the first tangible result of the acquisition.”

Attention to detail 
The 100% full inspection which the IBS-100 offers will be in an extremely high resolution. That means it will be possible to detect every tiny error and ink spatter. In addition, the high resolution also functions to recognize small text and barcodes; paramount in the disciplinary environment that is the packaging and digital printing industry. At the push of the button, every printed page can be displayed on the screen in its entirety, with the operator being able to zoom in on those areas that require attention. Any specific copy can now be inspected in detail with this web-viewing option.

Synergy benefits 
QIPC’s managing director Menno Jansen says, “It’s clear to see that the synergy between our know-how, our R&D team and INTRO International’s experience has had an immediate pay-off. Just like 20 years ago, we’re launching a product which is unique in the global market.” In addition to the IBS-100, INTRO International plans to bring many more interesting products and technologies to Q.I. Press Controls in the future. “Of course, investments will have to be made to continue developing their other products. But as you can see with the IBS-100, this is already delivery exciting end products.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
