The IFRA conference was held at Fira de Barcelona Montjuic 2 in Barcelona, Spain from October 14 to October 17, 2002. TKS was introduced to the Spanish newspapers as a dynamic engineering source for high speed and high quality reproduction. A number of French and Belgium newspapers stopped by to revisit and inform TKS of their future plans for press expansion.
Quite a few newspapers were especially interested in the add-on capabilities of existing presses that TKS has completed in the United States especially on Goss presses. Newspaper visitors from the United States along with their European fellow newspapers joined in discussions on how to solve their needs for upgrades and expansion of color on their presses. Expansion of computer integration and technology was explained to visitors at the booth.
New newspapers visiting TKS at the booth were shown videos of the factory and the test presses. The videos showed TKS’ computerized NC machines in the factory, and the actual running of the Flying Plate change, Flying Page change and Flying Web Width change on the TKS factory test press. These capabilities of the TKS presses were demonstrated on the video with the operations being done at different speeds of production to minimize waste and optimize the use of equipment and personnel. Details of TKS technology in such features as the patented Shell Cylinder, patented Super Registration Device, Infeed and Outfeed control, Digital Ink Pump and Spray Bar were shown to exhibit and stress TKS’ engineering excellence and commitment to the newspaper industry.
