Products, Support Services, Partner Solutions Highlight Goss' GRAPH EXPO Agenda
DURHAM, N.H.—August 17 2015—Goss International will highlight the unique advantages of its web offset technology for commercial, newspaper and packaging applications at GRAPH EXPO 15 in Chicago (Booth #853, McCormick Place South) from Sept. 13-16.
The company will focus on its ground-breaking product portfolio for the commercial, newspaper and packaging markets, highlighting the Goss Sunday Vpak press for high-quality, short-run packaging applications, and the Magnum Compact press for short- to medium-run book, newspaper and semi-commercial applications, and its wide range of Sunday commercial web presses.
Goss will also provide further information about its latest partner solutions, such as Alwan’s Color Expertise Technology. Now commercially available across the full Goss product range, this software suite includes extended color gamut, enabling customers to add two or three inks to conventional process inks for exact brand color reproduction without the need for spot inks. Facilitating a substantial reduction in the costs usually associated with ink changeovers, the update is expected to bring customers a 30 to 50 percent cost reduction compared to the use of spot inks through a combination of eliminating ink changeovers and reduced ink inventories.
Alwan’s Color Expertise Technology also features G7 certified color management and quality control software which helps to increase print quality and consistency; reduce cost and ultimately maximize productivity across the production cycle.
“GRAPH EXPO is the ideal platform for Goss to engage with customers and prospects about our latest product developments and partner innovations across market sectors,” relayed Mike D'Angelo, Goss managing director for the Americas. “We always welcome the chance to communicate directly with printing companies of all sizes, and provide details of how Goss technologies can potentially re-expand margins, revitalize production capabilities and create flexible run-length opportunities.”
The Goss Lifetime Support team will also present parts, service and enhancement programs, designed to extend the competitive lifespan of both press and finishing systems. Visitors who stop by the Goss booth will also find out what special parts promotions are being offered at the show.
Recent Goss customer projects in the U.S. will also be a key feature at GRAPH EXPO.
“Our customers continue to push the boundaries in the markets they serve and we have been privileged enough to be involved in some significant American customer projects and new press installations,” continued D’Angelo. “Since GRAPH EXPO 2014, the first Magnum Compact press system in the U.S. has been installed at Advance Publishing in Staten Island—the press towers clearing the overhead by no more than an inch!" Installation of the first triple-wide Goss Uniliner press was also completed at Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
D'Angelo continued, “These U.S. firsts and the new Goss presses successfully installed at other North and South American customers, such as Colonial Press International, Creel Printing, Grupo El Comercio and Infagon Web S.A., further demonstrate Goss’ commitment to delivering market-leading offset solutions, tailored to our individual customers’ needs.”
