Highlights from Expanded Goss and Shanghai Electric Product Portfolio #Ipex
BIRMINGHAM, UK—May 20, 2010—With its investment in Goss International, Shanghai Electric Group Corp. has expanded its involvement in world-class industrial equipment manufacturing. At Ipex 2010, Goss International is exhibiting alongside SEC to highlight a range of newly allied printing companies and the products in the combined portfolio.
More than 20 years after its initial move into the print sector, the subsidiary printing and packaging machinery companies of the Shanghai Electric Group Copr. (SEC) today produce press, finishing and auxiliary components for the worldwide market. Current brands and products associated with SEC encompass a broad range of applications. Under brand names such as Akiyama, Purlux, Guanghua, Yawa, Shen Wei Da and Feida, product lines for sheetfed printing, binding, die-stamping, foiling and guillotining are designed to deliver world-class performance and high value.
On the IPEX booth, a selection of products from the SEC portfolio represents the wide range of print production solutions offered by the Group:
Akiyama – MEGA Jprint perfecting
Running live at Ipex, the most advanced version of the Jprint series, the MEGA Jprint has new features including the ability to automatically change all plates simultaneously in three minutes. The system also optimizes sheet handling and registration with a subsequent press speed of 15,000 iph for four-over-four jobs.
The uniquely configured B1 cylinders of the MEGA Jprint mean that each side of a sheet is printed using separate units, which are positioned one above the other and feature their own plate, blanket and impression cylinders. This enables the entire sheet to be printed on both sides without the need to turn the sheet or leave gripper margins on the tail edge.
Yawa – die-cutting and foil stamping
The YAWA PRO-F106 die-cutter has been specially designed to provide the versatility of die-cutting and quality hot-foil or hologram stamping in a single operation. Differing from a standard dual-purpose foil stamping and die-cutting devices, the YAWA PRO-F106 is capable of foil stamping, die-cutting and stripping. A new infeed and control system gives highly accurate positioning that enables holograms to be applied at high speed.
