Sussex, Wisconsin, USA - 02 June, 2016 - QuadTech Inc., worldwide leader in color and inspection technology, announced a competitively-priced register control option designed for single width, single folder newspaper press applications. The new Register Guidance with MultiCam TRIM was developed from the company's proven MultiCam system. QuadTech's MultiCam is the world's best-selling register camera, with over 15,000 installed worldwide.

The LED-based MultiCam TRIM camera has the ability to read multiple mark patterns across the web, scanning diamond-shaped marks as small as 0,50 mm. The system can be configured to control up to eight towers and one folder from a single operator control station.
