Completion of first domestic 6 X 2 web offset press.  Second Europe-bound export to printing company in Portugal.
Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho, Ltd. has recently signed a sales contract with Mirandela Artes Graficas, S.A., a major printing company in Portugal, to supply the first domestically made 6 X 2 shaftless newspaper web offset press, the Color Top 9000CD.  This 6 X 2 press was presented at drupa 2004 actually printing during show hours at top speeds of 90,000 cph and was enthusiastically and widely received by the attendees.

The triple wide 6 x 2 press has plate and blanket cylinders that are 6-page wide by 2-page around which means that it can print 1.5 times the standard double wide 4 x 2 press (4-page wide by 2-page around) reducing the number of printing units required when printing multi-pages.  The merits can be seen in areas like smaller footprint which means not only reduced initial cost but also lower running costs such as less waste, less power consumption and lower maintenance cost due to the fact that there will be fewer pasters and shorter web paths.  This is a result of the favorable acceptance of the operations track record and service provided in the previous multi-purpose commercial offset press, the Color Top 8200CMCD which was delivered to Mirandela in 2003.

Installation of the press commenced from June of 2006 which consists of:  5 (6 x 2) towers – 2 folders – 5 reelstands.

  Cutoff : 21" (533.4mm)
