Goss Provides 'World First' Press Technology Demonstrations
The Newspaper Zone
The Colorliner CPS (Compact Printing System) press joins the Goss FPS (Flexible Printing System) press in the Goss family of 'true compact' newspaper press solutions. Derived from the latest-generation Colorliner press model, it incorporates FPS technology features modified into a more conventional 'non-split' four-high tower arrangement. The Colorliner CPS press is a true workhorse for higher-volume production and product versatility, while delivering the key quality and practical benefits of low profile (4.5 m high) towers and speeds up to 90,000 copies per hour.
The new tower on display at drupa 2012 features ergonomic, Goss Autoplate fully automatic plate-changing technology, as installed on hundreds of Goss press units worldwide. Additional design high points, such as uniquely low heat generation within its units, offer publishers further operational advantages through reduced energy consumption and lower costs.
drupa marks the first global presentation of a new Goss Magnum HPS single-width, one-around high-speed press, capable of up to 70,000 copies per hour. Designed for heatset, coldset or combined production, the press offers extended capabilities for producing a mix of magazine and newspaper work with the flexibility of a single-width format and productivity levels associated with double-width production.
"We have a history of introducing groundbreaking Goss technologies at drupa and we are continuing that tradition with products such as the variable-repeat Sunday Vpak presses. But beyond the introduction of specific technologies, our presence at drupa conveys our long-term perspective and our focus on actively exploring new concepts with our customers," concludes Meissner. "Even in these highly competitive industry conditions, Goss has continued to invest in its core markets and extend the advantages of its core technologies to new applications. Printers know they are collaborating with a strong, visionary supplier who can work with them to replace outdated equipment with advanced web offset solutions that will help them see things differently."
