AIW Printing completes installation of 80-page Goss Sunday 4000 system

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

August 19th 2008 – A new gapless 80-page Goss Sunday press will go into full production, on time, this month, at AIW Printing near Melbourne, Australia. CEO Peter Clark says the company is extremely pleased with the very smooth installation process and excited about new opportunities the press will provide.

AIW is the 4th largest heatset web printer in Australia and New Zealand.

"We have grown our business by always investing in the latest, automated technology available for prepress, printing and finishing," according to Clark. "We are always looking for efficiencies with production and technology that is the most environmentally sound on the market. The new Sunday press is the latest example, and we look forward to passing on the print quality, productivity, environmental and efficiency advantages of this high-pagination system to our customers."

Crews at AIW put ink on paper with the new press on August 6. "We appreciate the skill and the professionalism Goss International brought to the installation process," Clark says. "Our teams have worked very well together, and that teamwork was the key ingredient in the on-time start-up of this large, technologically advanced press system."

Clark says that the Goss Ecocool dryer supplied with the new Sunday press and the waste reduction features throughout the system, especially the gapless technology with its beneficial paper savings, support AIW's focus on reducing environmental impact. The advanced afterburner technology of the Ecocool dryer optimizes the use of the evaporated waste ink solvents to fuel the drying process, thus substantially reducing emissions as well as fossil fuel consumption.

AIW was the first heatset web printer to use captured rainwater from its factory roof in the production process and is boosting this storage capacity from 200,000 to 500,000 liters. AIW has also pioneered the use of 100-percent recycled papers for catalog and magazine production.

The 80-page Sunday 4000 system is the latest and the largest of several new Goss heatset presses that AIW has installed over the past seven years.

AIW Printing was founded in 2000. The company specializes in newspapers, magazine and catalog production and has secured work with many of the largest print buyers in Australia. AIW was the first web offset printer to be awarded the Gold Award in the Printing Innovation category at the Annual National Print Awards organized by The Printing Industries Association of Australia.
