Exhibit at JANPS2003

The 17th Japan Newspaper Production Show (JANPS2003) was held for four days from November 4th to 7th at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center, “Tokyo Big Sight”. With our shaftless web offset presses, the Color Top 7000CD and Color Top 5000UD, taking center stage, we also put on display our mailroom equipment for newspapers.

The Color Top 7000CD is an ultra high-speed shaftless web offset press that can print at a speed of 85,000 cph (copies per hour). It is a couple drive system whereby each of the printing cylinder couples (plate and blanket cylinders) are synchronously linked through computer control. By the incorporation of an SDS (Super Drive System) to realize synchronous linkage and a super high-speed and stable digital inking system, very high quality printing can be maintained.
Further, for the small to medium size newspapers in the U.S. and Europe, we have developed the Color Top 5000UD, a four-page wide by one-page around (4 X 1) shaftless web offset H-type press with 1:1 ratio plate and blanket cylinders that is unit driven. At a maximum printing speed of 70,000 cph, it has the productivity of a 4 X 2 (four page wide by one page around) press, while using only half the amount of plates, resulting in lower running cost. In the area of machine weight, a four-stacked printing unit (tower) weighs only around 25 tons, thus, reducing the power necessary to run the press making it an economical printing press.

Also on display were a 2-arm, split-arm reelstand in which the two arms on one shaft move independently allowing for fast and easy web roll widths changes, a CS-510 Counter Stacker and an APT-220 address label printer and applicator.

At this JANPS show, the Tokyo Kikai Group’s related companies were represented by Toki Electronics displaying and demonstrating the Newspaper Production System-5000, Newspaper Production Control System, T-NPC, the Spray Dampening System TSD-2000S, the printed image surface inspecting device, the Inspector-300, and by Kaneda Kikai Seisakusho, Ltd. displaying and demonstrating the newspaper center gripping conveying system, the BTC, the automatic magnetic tape-guided vehicle, the AGV, and the direct-to-plate system, the CTP. As a JANPS2003 exhibitor, our company was given the Exhibit Award from the Japan Newspaper Editors and Publishers Association.
