Star product: presses – Goss M-600
Of course, most of the new presses at Drupa will be in the highly competitive sheetfed arena; interestingly though, Goss’s ‘new’ web press is set to go toe-to-toe in that self same sector. The development team at Goss has dubbed the M600 ‘the sheetfed alternative’. It consists of Goss M-600 print units twinned with a newly designed sheeter developed by VITS that can sheet the outcoming web without the need for a dryer.
The M-600 ‘perfector’ uses standard sheetfed inks and has a top speed that the sheetfed manufacturers will drool over: 30,000 perfected B1 sheets per hour. Blanket-to-blanket printing means there’s no need for gripper margins, and Goss claims the footprint of the M-600 is equal to that of an eight-unit long perfector. More importantly though, the firm claims it could be two to three times more productive than a long perfector.
