Press release from the issuing company
At drupa 2012 Goss International is emphasizing its industry-leading technology and visionary approach with a number of world debuts for the packaging, commercial and newspaper markets.
Exhibiting under the theme of ‘See Things Differently’, the company is demonstrating how the latest advances in automation, formats, configurations and supporting technologies can be harnessed to provide customers with the power to produce more impactful, immediate and cost-effective printed products with lower waste and less environmental impact.
Goss International president and CEO Jochen Meissner comments: “Driven by the challenges that our customers are facing, Goss has adopted a different perspective on adding value. The new products and technology applications that we are showcasing at drupa 2012 offer alternatives designed to help printers expand their opportunities. Our technologies, adapted, developed and fine-tuned to specific needs, can improve margins and provide higher value products to publishers, brand managers, readers and consumers.”
Goss International is exhibiting adjacent to its parent company, Shanghai Electric, in Hall 17 to demonstrate the broad and complementary capabilities of the two companies. The 1,820-square-meter Goss booth is organized into zones including Commercial Offset, Newspapers, and Packaging. With a focus on enhancements, service and support, a fourth Lifetime Support zone also demonstrates the unique Goss commitment to extending the lifespan and competitiveness of existing press and finishing systems.
The Packaging Zone
The Sunday Vpak presses provide the productivity and print quality advantages of web offset, along with high-tech inking and exacting control over presetting, register, color and tension. The Sunday Vpak 3000 is available in web widths of up to 1905mm (75 inches) and exploits the signature print stability of the gapless Sunday technology to address the growing trend towards wider web packaging printing for greater economy and flexibility of production. The Vpak 500 model is available in web widths of up to 1041mm (41 inches).
The two Sunday Vpak printing units are being demonstrated in the dedicated Packaging Theater at drupa, with a full presentation covering the technology, market applications and production advantages they deliver.
The Commercial Zone
Blanket changes and fully automated 96-page plate changes are being demonstrated on the Sunday 5000 unit at drupa. The unit is bound for Stark Druck in Germany after the show as part of a new installation that will make the company the world’s first site to run two 96-page web offset presses.
The Newspaper Zone
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.
“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.”
