Goss will present innovation, integration and execution advantages at Print 05

Press release from the issuing company

Goss International will showcase innovation and integration, ranging from press and postpress systems, to service and support at Print 05. The company will demonstrate its unique Goss Automatic Transfer option for non-stop printing and will operate a Goss Pacesetter 1100 saddlestitcher featuring servo-drive technology. The 16,800-square-foot booth will also feature each model from the gapless Goss Sunday press lineup and an area dedicated to Lifetime Support capabilities. "We see a strong future for web offset production, and we are uniquely positioned to help our customers create it," explains Bob Brown, Goss International CEO. Brown says his company views the largest printing trade show in the world in 2005 as an opportunity to showcase technology and, more importantly, to advance dialogues with customers about how to put that technology together and put it to work to create opportunities. The Goss Sunday press lineup at Print will include the 24-page Sunday 2000, the double-circumference Sunday 4000 and the Sunday 3000/32, the world's first web press featuring a wider 2x8 (32-page) format. Additional technologies on display will include the Goss Autoplate automated plate changing system, the Goss Web Center comprehensive, modular workflow and control system, the Goss Ecocool dryer with integrated chill rolls and closed-loop control options, and the Goss PFF-3.2 pinless former folder. The Goss Automatic Transfer feature, available for Sunday presses, allows on-the-run print transfer for version changes or complete four-color job changeovers without stopping for a conventional makeready. The Goss Pacesetter 1100 saddlestitcher in operation at Print will feature servo-driven hoppers and Goss Omniflex controls for optimal versatility and product customization. Goss will also emphasize versatile postpress configuration options through auxiliary components, including Ferag equipment now represented by Goss in North America. Goss has recently enhanced its Lifetime Support organization in North America. An area within the Print 05 booth will be exclusively devoted to presenting service, parts, enhancement, training, and lithography services capabilities. "We will demonstrate an impressive range of advanced web offset technology at the Print show, but we will also emphasize how we can help customers combine and support that technology," states Brown. "Innovation, integration and execution are mutually important, and we feel we offer unique advantages through the expanse of our product and service range and through our expertise."
