Exhibited at drupa 2008

The drupa 2008, international print media messe, was held at Dusseldorf, Germany from May 29th to June 11th.  There were 1,971 companies from 52 countries exhibiting their products in the 19 halls (2 more halls had been added to the previous show).  Japan was represented by 43 different companies.  Altogether, 391,000 people visited from various regions of the world.  TKS exhibited the Color Top Mini (2x1, semi commercial web offset press) with ink-jet printing system which performed the live running demonstrations.  TKS also exhibited the products of Color Top Series, Color Master Series, and TKS Group Companies.

The Color Top Mini, which is a tower type web offset printing unit for half web widths, is available for printing various sizes of newspaper and commercial products.  The Color Top Mini is flexible and easily adjusts the many kinds of printed products.  The exhibited press configuration included a 2-arm reel with a paster, infeed device by shaftless drive, H-type tower unit, and 2:2:2 folder connected with a Baton Touch Carrier.

The Color Top Mini demonstration was performed at a speed of 550 rpm using the Hybrid printing system, combining offset printing first followed by ink-jet printing on the same web.  This demonstrated the ink-jet printing system ability for making different images on each copy.  TKS also demonstrated the Color Top Mini normal offset printing at the maximum speed at 850 rpm, which displayed the difference in its higher printing quality and superior hybrid technology.

The large monitor in the booth was utilized to introduce TKS and TKS group, remarkable offset press Color Top series, Color Master series, and TKS group's products.  Numerous participants visited the TKS booth every day during the exhibition.  Visitors seemed most impressed especially with the magnificent hybrid printing.
