TKS jumped into the digital inkjet press arena, and will show its new system at next month's newspaper production show in Japan.

The JetLeader water-based inkjet press, with a maximum web width of 21.5 inches, can print up to 492 feet per minute, with a resolution of 600-by-600 dots per inch.

The machine will be used, in live operation, to print process color on one side of the web and black on the other side, TKS said, adding that the press is engineered to print 4-color on both sides of the web.

The Japan demo will also include variable printing as well as sheeting or cutting the final product. TKS will also equip the machine with a TKS folder to produce tabs, the vendor said.

"We have high hopes for this new product," said Mike Shafer, national sales manager of TKS (USA).

Additionally, TKS will have in operation a ColorTop Ecowide 4-by-1 press unit and a double delivery folder with three formers. The folder will be delivering two different broadsheet products, simultaneously, at different speeds, TKS said, adding that as part of the demo products will be starting and stopping at different times and at different running speeds.

The vendor also plans to showcase its postpress gripper conveyor and stacker as well as its closed-loop ink control and cutoff control systems.

The JANPS production show will take place Nov. 24 in Tokyo.
