TKS to Print Wall Street Journal Daily at drupa 2012

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

TKS will exhibit and demonstrate the JETLEADER 1500 digital ink jet press at this year’s DRUPA (May 3 thru May 16). TKS will also exhibit a static Low Profile Double Wide Tower unit.

The daily and live production runs will produce the current day’s U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal, output as a complete finished multiple section, full-color broadsheet product. TKS will receive daily edition files of the Journal at its booth and print that day’s edition during the show.  

TKS will also demonstrate other live product formats from the JETLEADER, including sheeted product from the VITS Multicut LP27 Sheeter and press scheduling software.

The JETLEADER was introduced in 2011 after two years of in house testing and development. This new revolutionary drop on demand web fed press can print a multitude of multi section broadsheet Newspaper and Commercial products and formats finished in line. It has variable image and format capability. The press can run on a variety of substrates and uses water based pigmented ink. The JETLEADER uses no plates, has no dampening system, uses substantially less electricity than a conventional offset press and has a small footprint.

  • Speed 492 ft (150 m) /minute

  • Web width: Max. 1,400mm (55”.1”)
