3TControl CEO Ian Banerjee commented, "The collaboration with ABB is really exciting. ABB Printing is part of the ABB Group and you will not find a more stable partner, and that’s what printers are looking for in these challenging times. There are many new benefits we can offer through this cooperation to further help printers with better quality and print cost reductions. 3TControl has continued to push the bar higher and together with ABB we can bring new possibilities to market, not only with new functionality for ABB's top level production management solution MPS Production, but also for customers that wish to only change the underlying electronics. Like us, ABB believe in bringing to market solutions for printers to get more and more out of their existing presses. Building the best automation solutions for newspapers worldwide is our passion and we look forward to going global with ABB Printing."
Kurt Übelher, HKMB CEO commented, "we were first a client looking for automation in an increasingly competitive market. We liked the 3TControl system and company a lot. They think like printers and understand the reality of print operations. They build systems for printers by printers. We are a real publishing and printing organisation looking constantly to be more efficient. We are always trying to get more from our print operations and automation is a key part of that. Our involvement in this cooperation helps generate new user ideas and provides a real world demo room for customers to visit and test-drive the system for themselves.
The cooperation between the companies has already borne fruit with an order placed by Schibsted Trykk Bergen, Norway, for the full integration of the 3TControl press register and ink density control systems with the ABB press control system.
