QuadTech Announces Addition of Procemex to Product Portfolio

Sussex, WI--29 June 2009--QuadTech, Inc., today announced an agreement to become an authorized sales agent for PROCEMEX-PRINT web monitoring products in North, Central, and South America. Based in Jyväskylä, Finland, Procemex Oy Ltd. is recognized as a pioneer in camera-based web monitoring. Procemex technology involves using video cameras to monitor various locations on the press line for events such as web breaks.

The addition of Procemex’s unique products complement QuadTech’s industry-leading print control offerings, and help solidify both companies’ positions as market leaders. QuadTech is the only print control manufacturer to exclusively offer the PROCEMEX-PRINT products in the Americas.

“We’re extremely excited to be able to offer Procemex alongside our own product lines in the Americas,” said Karl Fritchen, President of QuadTech. “None of our competitors are in a position to do this. For printers, this is an additional piece of automation to help them reduce waste and gain press productivity—and a profitable alternative to existing, more expensive web monitoring systems. Many European printers have embraced this technology and we believe the printing market in the Americas can realize the same benefits.”

Based in Finland, Procemex specializes in developing and promoting leading edge image processing and machine vision applications for the pulp and paper industry, as well as selected business and customer segments such as the printing industry. As part of its agreement with Procemex, QuadTech will offer:

  • PROCEMEX-PRINT – Web monitoring system
  • Procemex Piccolo and Piccolo Flex – Portable multi-camera digital video recording and troubleshooting system
  • Procemex Flex Camera - Intelligent digital 1.3 million pixel camera
  • Procemex WebAccess - An add-on component for existing Procemex Web Monitoring Systems for monitoring web breaks by remote users such as press suppliers
