Japanese technology award for Goss Flexible Printing System
Press release from the issuing company
May 15th, 2006 – The Japanese Newspaper Publishers and Editors Association (JNPA) has awarded a silver medal and letter of commendation to Goss International for the Goss Flexible Printing System (FPS) press. The award recognizes innovative technology and was based on the video presentation of the press at the last JANPS newspaper trade show in Tokyo.
The technical committee of the JNPA chose a total of six products from 54 exhibitors at the show for technical development awards. Goss International was the only manufacturer to be recognized for press innovation.
Judges commented, “The FPS press contains many unique ideas and technologies,” citing its compact tower design and full flexibility for changing product formats as specific innovations.
The Flexible Printing System press is designed for high-quality printing at up to 90,000 copies per hour and for exceptional versatility. Incorporating proven concepts from Goss Colorliner presses, the new press features slide-apart inker technology that allows the plate and blanket cylinder section to be changed to vary the product format. Four-high FPS towers have a first to last impression distance of just 2.7 metres and systems can be configured for heatset or non-heatset printing.
