Goss International has begun shipping its first Sunday Vpak packaging press to Precision Press in Minnesota.
Intensive testing was completed at Goss’s headquarters in Durham, New Hampshire during October.
Goss Sunday Vpak presses can be configured for a wide range of folding carton, pre-print, flexible packaging and label applications at speeds up to 1,500ft/m (457m/min).
The Sunday Vpak 3000 model features web widths up to 75in (1,905mm) with a repeat range from 27.6-55.1in (700-1,400mm). The Sunday Vpak 500 model is available in web widths up to 41in (1,051mm) with a repeat range from 16-32in (406-812mm).
The new variable-repeat web offset press system for Precision Press will be configured for flexible packaging and label applications, with Sunday Vpak 500 printing units as well as Goss in-line flexo and coating units, and UV and EB curing capabilities.
Goss International staged the entire press system prior to shipment and conducted a wide range of print tests on various substrates.
Precision Press president Lee Timmerman said: ‘We were very impressed with what we saw in New Hampshire from both a print quality and an operability standpoint, and we’re excited about being able to put this unique new web offset packaging option to work for our customers by the end of the year.’
Peter Walczak, director of product management for packaging presses at Goss International, added: ‘With new quick-change sleeve technology and our proven expertise in high-quality web offset production, we are presenting the packaging and converting market with a more productive and cost-effective alternative to sheet-fed, flexo and gravure options for many applications.’
