QuadTech Debuts Expanded Line at IFRA 2003

Sussex, WI--September 23, 2003--QuadTech, Inc., the worldwide leader of press and auxiliary controls, will be at IFRA booth #2245, October 13-16, showing for the first time a combined line of Quad/Tech and PressTech newspaper control products

Quad/Tech, Inc.'s merger with PressTech Controls, LTD. creates a company with more than 80 years of collective experience in auxiliary control technology. The company supplies a complete line of register controls, reinforcing Quad/Tech's commitment to the newspaper industry.

At IFRA, Quad/Tech will be featuring the Autotron 2800, Color Control System (CCS), and the RGS Vector on the ICON platform. The Autotron 2800 is designed specifically for newspapers, and is ideal for short runs, where it quickly pulls the press into register.

The CCS automatically searches for, locates, and tracks micro color bars to relate color density information and other print attributes to press operators. The CCS with Instrument Flight's Balance NavigatorÒ feature makes gray balance control easy and flexible, and eliminates the need for the operator to translate color balance modifications into multi-color ink key adjustments.

The RGS Vector with ICON system meets the demand for high-speed, newspaper register control. The RGS Vector has the fastest register control camera on the market today, achieving up to 30 captures per second while the web is running at speeds up to 3,500 feet per minute (17,8 meters per second).
