Prinpia, South Korea, chooses Goss M-600 web press for consistency and control

Press release from the issuing company

March 13th, 2007 – Part of the Chunjae Group, Prinpia Co., Ltd. of Seoul, South Korea is currently installing a new Goss M-600 web offset press to meet rising demands for shorter runs of high-quality print in the local market. Installation will be completed in April of 2007. Running a fleet of web offset and sheetfed presses, Prinpia currently supplies a wide range of commercial print products, from text books to department store inserts. The new 16-page press has been specified to boost production capacity for the company’s high-end, full-color portfolio. Following installation, Prinpia expects to expand its monthly magazine print business. According to An Nam Geug, director of Prinpia, higher automation and color control are the key features of the Goss M-600 press that will facilitate this business growth opportunity. “In South Korea today we find that customers are increasingly expecting a very high general standard of print but at the same time they need delivery in shorter timeframes than ever before. The only way to fulfill these expectations is by investing in better automation and proven technology, so that we can achieve the highest quality, maintain it throughout each job and repeat it time after time. This, principally, is why we decided on the M-600 system. Its robust build and easy operability are additional advantages that helped convince us in this decision.” Printing at speeds up to 55,000 impressions per hour, the new five-unit Goss M-600 press for Prinpia has a 546 mm cut-off and Omnicon controls. This press system features a JF-55 folder including a rotary chopper fold assembly to ensure maximum production flexibility.
