Japs-Olson Orders Third Goss Sunday Press
ST. LOUIS PARK, MN—Japs Olson Co. will add its third new Goss Automatic Transfer (Sunday) web press in early 2014 to aid in production of direct mail. The company will also install a new Goss Pacesetter saddlestitcher at its facility here.
Michael Murphy, president, and Robert Murphy, chairman, announced the company’s latest investment at the PRINT 13 show in Chicago this week. The new press, like Sunday 2000 press systems installed in 2007 and 2011, will feature eight printing units and a 57˝ web width. Goss Autoplate and Automatic Transfer technologies will allow on-the-fly job changes without stopping for makereadies. The new Pacesetter 1600 saddlestitcher will be equipped with six horizontal hoppers and the new Goss GT-16 five-knife trimmer.
“Print is a powerful direct marketing medium, and we have continuously invested in technology to help our customers deliver their messages in the most impactful, targeted and cost-effective manner possible,” noted Michael Murphy. “That includes offset, digital and hybrid printing capabilities, as well as advanced finishing.”
Japs-Olson was the first printing company in the United States to install an eight-unit, single-web press.
Eight-unit Goss Sunday presses with Automatic Transfer technology provide the versatility to print up to eight colors or to print successive four-color jobs without stopping the press for a makeready. The latest press at Japs-Olson will feature a specially designed cut-off for direct mail products. Goss will equip the system with a high-speed Vits Rotocut sheeter, as well as a Goss Contiweb splicer and Ecocool dryer.
