Goss Intl. will use this year’s Graph Expo show to highlight recent web press projects in North America, where the company reports commercial printers selecting its presses to replace older technology or enter new markets have given Goss a “near-unanimous market position through 2010 and 2011.”

The Goss booth will present unique options for commercial and newspaper printing, print finishing and aftermarket support as well as the new Sunday Vpak packaging presses and an expanded portfolio of Ferag, Akiyama, Purlux and Yawa products.

Large and small printers in North America have chosen Goss Sunday web presses recently for commercial and publication printing as well as a growing array of specialized applications including direct mail, retail inserts and playing cards. The list includes sheetfed printers adding web capacity to differentiate and offer their customers a more complete one-stop-shop.

Goss also remains active in the newspaper sector, with a full portfolio of press systems, unique finishing options utilizing Goss and Ferag components, and specialized experience in supporting hybrid and contract printing operations.

Company representatives will discuss why Omnicon automation packages, on-the-fly Automatic Transfer job changes, DigiRail digital inking and other advanced Goss features make it very sensible to consider a new press to replace older, less efficient capacity.

In the direct mail sector, Sunday 2000 presses are increasingly being utilized with new or existing inline finishing systems to produce high-quality targeted products at lower costs. New Sunday 2000 direct mail presses have been recently installed at Japs-Olson, Vertis, Quad/Graphics and other U.S. sites. Several feature Automatic Transfer technology, allowing on-the-fly version or job changes without stopping the press, and ‘digital hybrid’ configurations with integrated digital printing.

Additional highlights of the Goss booth at Graph Expo will include the new Sunday Vpak variable sleeve packaging presses. Vpak presses are available in web widths up to 75 inches and represent a new web offset alternative to sheetfed, gravure and flexo presses for folding carton, film and label applications.

The Goss Lifetime Support team will present parts, service and enhancement programs designed to extend the competitive lifespan of press and finishing systems. Goss International will again offer a Graph Expo parts discount promotion to emphasize the advantages and competitiveness of its large-scale OEM parts operation.
