Atlantic Press retrofits insert press with Goss Contiweb FD paster
Press release from the issuing company
February 7th, 2007 - Seeking higher splice performance and reliability, insert printing specialist Atlantic Press, Inc. in Bedford Park, Illinois has retrofitted a Goss C550 press with a new Goss Contiweb FD flying paster.
“We found that splice performance was having an increasingly adverse impact on our overall efficiency and productivity,” explains Larry McInerney, vice president of Atlantic Press. “The Contiweb FD paster is easier to operate, more reliable and has allowed us to bring our web breaks, downtime and waste levels down significantly.”
Crews at Atlantic Press worked with the Goss International service team to complete the paster installation in three days in an effort McInerney called a textbook example how projects need to be planned and executed. “Our ability to produce at 100 percent within 72 hours was vital to maintaining a very tight production schedule.”
