“Our new TSC Press Drive Controls were developed based on customer demand to eliminate the need
to rely on the OEM for expensive parts, service and software upgrades”, stated TSC’s Products, Parts
and Service VP, Eugene Albright. “We’ve been providing equipment controls solutions for the USPS for
decades and were able to transfer those controls technologies to the newspaper printing presses . We also
listened to our customers and reviewed our extensive historical service data and replacement parts records
to help us develop our TSC Press Drive Controls.”
“With our new partnership with QIPC – EAE, we can now provide our customers complete solutions for a
wide variety of controls, including press controls, the highest quality optical measurement and control systems,
along with closed loop color controls”, added TSC’s SVP Richard Palmer.
