Goss completes high-speed SG-3 folder Install

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Goss International completed assembly of its fourth SG-3 pinless web press combination folder at its facility in Durham, New Hampshire in early June. A time-lapse video of the assembly process is posted at www.gossinternational.com. The folder will be shipped to a customer in the US. Another SG-3 folder was recently shipped to Germany, where a commercial and publication printing company is installing it with a Goss Sunday 4000 press, and two more are scheduled to be manufactured at the Durham location later this year.

The new high-speed SG-3 model produces short-grain magazine, insert and book products at speeds of up to 120,000 copies per hour. The folder accommodates up to eight ribbons and can produce signatures with up to 96 magazine pages.

Key technology features of the SG-3 folder include individual ribbon drives, double-cut signature creation, increased product width capacity, simplified group jaw cylinder adjustment, optimized tape paths, simplified diverter and 40-percent product slowdown. Options include balloon formers, edge trimming, ribbon stitching, collect stitching and Goss International's Zero-slip Nip technology.
