ABB has had a pioneering role in the area of control and automation for newspaper printing for many years, and where ABB has lead, the others have followed. The decades of experience of the printing industry, coupled with continuous development of hardware and software, puts ABB in an ideal position to design and implement control systems for printing presses in accordance with the increasingly demanding requirements of the press manufacturers and the end customers.
Systems can be supplied for all press types and include the integration of third-party systems (dampening, ink supply, washing devices, register control etc.) as required.
Our control systems are built using standard components that are available worldwide and for which spare parts are available for at least 10 years after installation of the system.
