Mohn Media orders new hybrid Sunday press system with in-line finishing from Goss

Thursday, August 07, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Mohn Media, the multi-discipline print service provider based in Gütersloh, Germany, has ordered a 24-page Goss Sunday 2000 web offset press equipped with unique in-line capabilities. The ability to source the wide-web, single-circumference press and a full range of in-line finishing equipment in a complex configuration from a single supplier was of key importance for Mohn Media in choosing Goss.

Due for installation in the fourth quarter of 2014, the Goss press line ordered by Mohn Media includes five Sunday 2000 units with a 1450mm web width and semi-automatic plate loading, a pinless folder, Contiweb CS zero-speed splicer and Ecotherm dryer as well as an additional made-to-order web drying configuration featuring further chill rolls and a remoistening unit. Goss will also equip the press for inkjet personalization and supply a range of Contiweb Vits components for in-line coating, gluing, die cutting and pre folding.

According to Axel Hentrei, chief executive officer of Mohn Media, the aim of this investment is to streamline processes for more production flexibility: “Once the new Goss press line is up and running, we anticipate significant time-savings on regular jobs as well as less waste and a more efficient use of resources in general.”

Mohn Media specified the 1450mm wide/six-pages-across format for its press in order to benefit from the high production capacity of up to 65,000 impressions per hour, in combination with the agility of a single-circumference (two-pages-around) format. This was another capability which recommended Goss know-how, according to Hentrei – not only because Sunday gapless technology has pioneered and perfected wide-web printing, but also due to the industry-leadingGoss expertise in web handling from reelstand to folder.

Web integrated infeeds and web guides maintain exact web tension and alignment in the zero speed Contiweb CS splicer. These features combine with a shaftless drive system to prevent web breaks and ensure high print quality. As well as a full complement of web guides and tension controls throughout the entire press system, the Sunday 2000 press for Mohn Media will also feature web severers, web catchers and web break detection technology.

The trademark gapless blanket technology of Sunday presses eliminates the vibrations and the associated print defects such as bump streaking, doubling and web flutter, enabling high-quality printing at higher speeds and on wider webs. Additional standard Sunday press features – like heavy-duty side frames and 1:1 in-line cylinder stacks that are force loaded and bearerless – also help to minimize vibrations and maximize flexural stiffness.

“The sophistication of this configuration calls for a safe pair of hands on the project from start to finish,” concludes Hentrei. “At Mohn Media, our core business is the creation and management of full-ranging media solutions that involve many different skills and processes for our customers. We understand very well how important it is to have the right skills, experience, process knowledge and attention-to-detail. We feel confident that Goss is the right partner in this project.”
