HIGH PERFORMANCE PRINT AUTOMATION
3TControl’s Print Automation solution, the unique and modular closed loop control platform from 3TControl provides a complete web offset automation package tailored for newspaper printers. The result is optimum performance in waste, quality and press manning customized for print operations to yield higher profits.
PRINT AUTOMATION is a new generation of products from 3TControl Precision Systems that focus not just on newspaper quality but also on significantly reducing the cost per copy so giving printers the benefits of best practice printing applied to their particular print operations.

Quality vs Productivity. So what should we be asking printers to do?
The cost of newsprint has recently gone up by on average 20% in most markets, but is automation in the mind of plant managers to combat newsprint increases?

Commercial printers have for over a decade been able to enjoy the benefits of closed loop color control. The same benefits are now available to newspaper printers using the same, proven, reliable techniques.
Accurate color reproduction across the web requires conditions to also be met other than tracking ink density and dot size, notably accurate dot alignment or color register on every plate is a prerequisite for any closed loop color control system.
True Register technology gives accurate register on every plate across and around the press avoiding the need for manual plate middling.
Precision cut-off control right from start-up, throughout makeready, acceleration, splices and press deceleration at the end of the run is now possible with 3TControl.
Accurate Fan-Out measurement at every section allows real-time fan-out evolution to be monitored and corrected under different production conditions.
Dot gain monitoring and calibration are an important part of printing process control.
