4x1 Press sets to be installed at the New Sapporo Printing Plant of The Hokkaido Shimbun Press
Same type of COLOR TOP ECOWIDE II to be installed  

On 11th of April 2016, TKS received an order for two sets of the COLOR TOP ECOWIDE II web offset presses from The Hokkaido Shimbun Press for their New Sapporo Printing Plant of Doshin Sogo Printing.

The Hokkaido Shimbun Press has decided to build a New Sapporo Plant to relocate their production base from the current Sapporo Plant.

The Sapporo Plant had been using three sets of another press vendor’s 4x2 presses.  Two sets of TKS COLOR TOP ECOWIDE II offset presses will soon be installed at the completion of the new plant construction.

The Hokkaido Shimbun Press did a thorough review of various press vendors 4x1 press format.  With TKS they saw not only the outstanding robust structure and features, but excellent ability in Environmental Performance, saving energy and resources.  This criteria was very important in their selection process.

We are very proud and grateful to receive this order, following their orders in 2010 for the Hakodate plant and in 2007 for the Kushiro plant.
We express deep gratitude to The Hokkaido Shimbun Press for continuous investment and confidence in our superior quality products.

The COLOR TOP ECOWIDE II to be installed is a 4x1 web offset press with high-speed DIP (digital ink pumps) feature capable of printing 80,000 copies per hour as its top speed.  The configuration of the press are two sets of three COLOR TOP towers (4/4), two COLOR TOP mono units (1/1), one folder, and five reelstands which can print 40 pages with 24 pages in color.  They will also have TKS optional features such as the “New Air-conditioning System” and peripheral equipments such as the TKS Newspaper Production Control System T-NPC and the full automatic web leading system FWL.

The full operation of the press is scheduled in March, 2019.
