NEXPO 2001

The annual exhibit for the newspaper industry in USA was held at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA from June 16 to June 19, 2001.
TKS booth showed video presentation of the Color Top 7000CD in operation of doing Flying Plate Change, Flying Page Change and Flying Web Width Change. Visitors watched with the aid of slow speed photography as continuous web running at 53,000 CPH was changed from one product to another product without stopping the press. This was an exchange of sixty-four plates from one physical Tower Unit to another Tower Unit with waste of less than seventy-five copies.
Changing web widths from full to half were shown again with the use of slow speed photography at speeds of 35,000 CPH. A full size web product was changed from an eight page production to a four page production as the web width was reduced from a full roll size to half roll size.
With these presentations TKS showed the flexibility and capability of their shaftless press technology.
