Goss International Announces Drupa 2008 Lineup
BOLINGBROOK, IL—March 5, 2008—With the theme New Ways for Print, Goss International will demonstrate innovative technologies, unique opportunities and an expanded application range for web offset production at drupa 2008.
A new Goss press system will be in full operation at the show, incorporating technologies that create a unique and highly productive alternative for some traditional sheetfed applications. Additional printing unit exhibits on the Goss International stand in hall 17 will include Magnum 4, Uniliner, FPS and Sunday 4000 models, all with new features and capabilities. The company will also highlight the world’s first 96-page Sunday 5000 web press and demonstrate its latest Magnapak and Pacesetter finishing systems.
“Goss innovations like our M-600, Uniliner, Sunday, and FPS press platforms and DigiRail, Ecocool, Autoplate and Pacesetter technologies have been groundbreaking highlights of recent drupa shows,” explains Goss International CEO Bob Brown. “We will extend this record of technology leadership this year and emphasize how we are working with companies of all sizes and requirements to create unique new opportunities.”
Short runs, wide webs, advanced automation
New technologies aimed at shorter run lengths and higher pagination will be among the Goss International developments at Drupa. The company will profile installations that are utilizing its exclusive Automatic Transfer (AT) Sunday presses for continuous printing. More than a dozen presses with the Autoplate and Automatic Transfer technology combination are now in operation worldwide, including eight-unit presses that complete full-color job changes on the fly.
Goss International will also exhibit key technologies of the new 96-page Sunday 5000 press and present simulations showing how its gapless blanket technology, precision machining and cooperation with auxiliary and consumables suppliers enable the wider platform. The first Sunday 5000 press will be installed in Italy later this year with a web width of 2860 millimeters (112 inches).
