Goss International demonstrates New Ways for Print
DRUPA—May 29th, 2008—Goss International is demonstrating innovative technologies and an expanded application range for web offset production from its stand in hall 17, with its drupa 2008 theme – ‘New Ways for Print’.
Showcasing its latest press, finishing and workflow solutions, Goss International is presenting technologies that push the boundaries of web offset production and enhance the value of print. As well as exhibiting Magnum 4, Uniliner, FPS and Sunday 4000 printing units – all with new features and capabilities – the company is highlighting the world’s first 96-page Sunday 5000 web press. Magnapak and Pacesetter finishing systems will also be exhibited.
“Goss International is focused on continually improving the value proposition of print and providing printers and publishers with competitive advantages and new opportunities,” points out Bob Brown, CEO, Goss International. “Our organization has premiered many groundbreaking technologies at drupa over the years, and this year is no different.”
The all new Goss M-600 Folia press, which is running live on the Goss International stand, combines sheetfed and web concepts to double the productivity of sheetfed perfector presses. Demonstrations will emphasize high print quality, fast makereadies and low waste at short run lengths.

All-new press unveiled. . .
The Goss M-600 Folia press provides a highly productive alternative to sheetfed perfectors, with the potential to double output.
Using proven M-600 printing units, standard sheetfed inks and unique sheeter technology developed exclusively with VITS, the press will print up to 30,000 perfected sheets per hour on coated stock without a dryer. The footprint is comparable to that of a sheetfed perfector, and the investment cost and labor requirements are competitive.
The world’s first 2860 mm-wide web press, the Sunday 5000, is destined for Italy later this year. All of the elements – from 1524 mm (60”) diameter paper rolls, to consumables, to folding precision at full web speeds have been designed for optimal high-pagination production and new opportunities.
