Goss to Launch Newspaper Press
At the early-October IFRA Expo in Hamburg, Goss International plans to launch a new press configuration, called the 4×2 Universal XL, which fits into the newspaper and semi-commercial printing categories. The press is available in web widths of up to 1,220 mm and can be installed in single (4×1 Universal XL) or double configurations.
More than 4,900 Universal printing units have been installed since the launch of the press model in 1991.
“Publishers and printers of all sizes are demanding added versatility and efficiency to produce a wider range of products at lower costs,” stated Goss CEO Jochen Meissner. “With the most complete range of large- and small-format press platforms, and extensive expertise in customizing these presses for specific requirements, we are in a strong position to support these customers.”
The 4×2 Universal XL model is supplied with a Goss quarterfold option, and with heatset or UV dryers. Like all models in the Universal portfolio, the new press can also be installed in the Goss T90 configuration, with the pasters on the floor level and at right angles to the press line for added versatility.
“We are confident and positive about the future of printed newspapers,” said Meissner. “IFRA Expo presents an excellent opportunity for us to confer with our customers and to emphasize the ownership structure, versatile portfolio and ability to execute that differentiate Goss International as a supplier.”
