Goss Demonstrates Press Capabilities


DURHAM, NH | Goss Int. reports the Goss Packaging Technology Center recently held its first “open” demonstration week in Durham following weeks of closed testing sessions and private demonstrations since it was launched in April this year. 

More than 40 prospects representing a range of packaging facilities across the US and Canada, from small independents to multi-plant operations, made the trip to see live demonstrations of the Sunday Vpak web offset press and explore new opportunities in packaging print production.

Visitors observed the Vpak 500 model running both 76-micron OPP film and 8-point SBS paperboard and employing a variety of additional inline capabilities, including high-gloss flexo coatings and EB curing. The Goss team on-site also demonstrated the press’s quick-change sleeve technology, said to provide fast, reliable, and economical job changes.

Peter Walczak, director of product management for packaging, says the event was positive and beneficial for Goss, its technology partners, and the guests. “The feedback at the time was fantastic, but comments and enquiries since suggest there could be some interesting developments to come. Open houses and demonstrations are key to helping us as a business showcase how our products are addressing market requirements. The Packaging Technology Center provides converters and brand owners the chance to generate and test new concepts for improved packaging printing first-hand.”

In addition to the ongoing schedule of trials and demonstrations, Goss is now planning a series of events at the Packaging Technology Center focused on specific educational topics. Color management and ink curing will be among the first themes to be tackled in these sessions, with input from Goss partners and consumables suppliers.
