Improved product quality and cost savings expected from reduced waste, increased efficiency
DURHAM, N.H. – Goss has received an order for an M130 press upgrade at Catamount Color with the goal of improving efficiency, reducing waste and enhancing color consistency.
The upgrade on the M130 sixteen-page web press system will include an ink fountain upgrade which consists of the more responsive one-piece ink key motors and potentiometers which are less costly and easier to replace than previous generation ink keys.
Scott Derouin, Goss Sales Manager – Northeast, says, “The combination of the mechanical upgrade to the ink fountain and replacement of the ink fountain electrics provide Catamount Color the gateway for improved presets, and the use of the closed-loop color system will reduce make-ready time and waste, run waste, and produce a superior quality printed product over the length of run.”
“We anticipate significant cost savings in paper waste and time. The quality and consistency of our product will be better,” says John McGrath, CEO and owner of Catamount Color. “There will be more uptime due to new electronics and drives. We are also hoping we have covered ourselves from excessive downtime at the most inopportune time caused by obsolete parts.”
Goss was the clear choice of Catamount Color when considering the upgrade. “We’ve had a long-term relationship with Goss. They have experience with these types of upgrades and their professionalism and communication made us feel comfortable the job would be done right,” said McGrath. “Goss has been very responsive to our questions and needs and helped tailor the project to fit our budgetary needs as well as maximizing the efficiencies that we wanted to gain with the upgrade.”
