Stark Druck Orders second Goss Sunday 4000 press

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

September 8th, 2008 – Stark Druck has signed an order for a second Goss Sunday 4000 press following the installation of a similarly configured Goss press in 2006. The German printer announced its intention to purchase both presses two years ago as a two-part improvement project that would deliver an extensive range of new product formats for clients.

The new Sunday 4000/48S press will consist of five units, each equipped with Goss Autoplate and Automatic Transfer technology to significantly reduce makeready times. The 48-page short grain press will run at speeds up to 60,000 iph in collect mode and, duplexed with the existing Sunday 4000/48S press, will be capable of producing 2 x 48-page signatures at 120,000 copies per hour as well in collect mode up to 96p DIN A4 signatures. A high speed SG-3.2 jaw folder, equipped with two choppers, will match the high speeds of the press and provide additional signature versatility – including an A5 book format – a new product opportunity for Stark Druck.

"We elected to work with Goss International because they offered an integrated solution – from the paster to the folder and incorporating the workflow and auxiliaries," comments Tino Heer, general manager at Stark Druck. "So far we have found the existing Sunday 4000 press to be highly efficient and highly productive, so we are looking forward to working with Goss International again."

Heer adds, "The new duplexed press will produce over 100 different product formats, which is great news for our customers. We really feel that we are embodying Goss International's philosophy of New Ways for Print."

Installation of the new press will take place at Stark Druck's Pforzheim facility beginning in December of 2008.
