Goss Installing World’s First 96-Page Commercial Web Offset Press
BOLINGBROOK, IL—February 4th, 2009—Goss International shipped the world’s first 96-page web offset press to Mazzucchelli in Seriate, Italy, in January. The Sunday 5000 system utilizes gapless blanket technology, which eliminates the vibrations associated with blanket gaps and allows high speeds and excellent print quality to be maintained with the wider cylinder configuration.
Goss International first announced that it would develop the Sunday 5000 press in October of 2007. The 2860 mm (112 inch) web width will allow printing of 96 full A4 magazine pages per cylinder revolution at up to 40,000 impressions per hour. Installation of the first press at Mazzucchelli is scheduled to be complete in March, 2009.
