Canadian Commercial Printer Adds First Full-Size Web Press

Thursday, January 19, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

January 18th, 2006 - McLaren Morris & Todd completed the startup of a new Goss M-600 web press at its facility in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada in November. The seven-unit system is the first full-size web press for the company, which also operates seven sheetfed presses and two half webs. “The M-600 is ideal for high-speed, cost-effective production of commercial work with a fast turnaround,” according to April Burke, Operations Manager at McLaren, Morris & Todd. Burke says the company has disproven any concerns that the web offset print quality would not match up to the level of its sheetfed presses. “The two processes are indistinguishable,” she contends. The automated Goss M-600 system is equipped with closed-loop controls and the Goss Autoplate plate changing option. Goss also supplied its own Contiweb splicer, Goss Ecocool dryer, and a combination folder with a pinless former-folder module. Employees from McLaren, Morris & Todd attended operator and maintenance training programs at the Goss Training Center in Dover, New Hampshire prior to the installation. “When we began thinking about new capacity, we were very serious about a 12- color sheetfed perfector with a roll feeder,” Burke explains. “The more we talked with customers about their needs, the more we were convinced that a full-size web was the better answer.” Burke says the ability to produce a 16-page form, two eight-page forms or four fourpage forms in a single pass with in-line finishing adds versatility and better allows McLaren Morris & Todd to serve customers as a single-source supplier. “With the solution we have now, we feel we are not losing out on any opportunity to serve our clientele,” she adds.
