April 14th 2008 – Goss International demonstrated its all-new M-600 Folia press system to sales representatives and dealers at its facility in Montataire, France on April 2. The press will be in full operation at the company's stand in hall 17 at the drupa show.
Announced publicly in March, the M-600 Folia press is designed as a high-productivity web offset alternative for producing up to B1-format sheeted products. The system utilizes M600 printing units, sheetfed inks and new sheeter technology developed in partnership with VITS to print on coated stocks without a dryer.
The press printed 30,000 high-quality perfected sheets per hour during the pre-drupa demonstration at the Goss International facility.
"This was a very tough audience that has to believe in the press and be able to promote it with confidence," explains Jean Claude Pautrat, product management director for Goss International. "Their satisfaction with the demonstration was a key milestone. We are excited about going to drupa with another truly innovative Goss technology that creates new opportunities for our customers."
