The training on Simulator is exactly like on-site press training, as the simulator behaves exactly like the printing press; showing the cause-effect of good and bad printing, except that it happens virtually without any time and material wastage. The training will be ideal for experienced printers and new recruits to learn to troubleshoot almost all the problems and causes that may occur in a press and to learn the general working of a press.

The simulator at RMTC can simulate 4x1, 4x2 and 2x1 press and thus allow wide range of training possibilities. 

Individual and collective training modules are offered on the following

  1. Web tension
  2. Print quality
  3. Materials
  4. Reel stands
  5. Infeed unit
  6. Printing unit
  7. Superstructures

The state-of-the-art Simulated Press training facility at the WAN-IFRA Research and Material Testing Centre (RMTC) in Chennai is the only such facility in South Asia. 

This facility is supported by ABP, Deccan Herald, Malayala Manorama, The Hindu, The Mathrubhumi and The Times of India. Sinapse Print, France is the provider of this virtual printing press simulator.
