Japs-Olson Co. (www.japsolson.com) placed an order
at Graph Expo 2010 for a new 8-unit Goss (www.gossinternational.com)
Sunday 2000 web press that will be configured for automated
direct-mail production. The new gapless Sunday press will be
equipped with Goss Autoplate automatic plate changing and Automatic
Transfer technologies, which will allow 4-color job changes to be
completed without stopping the press.
Installation will begin at the Japs-Olson facility in St. Louis Park, MN, in mid-2011. The new press will complement an 8-unit Sunday 2000 press with Automatic Transfer capabilities installed in 2007.
With eight Automatic Transfer printing units, operators are able to complete a makeready for a new job on four idle units and then bring those units on impression while simultaneously taking the four units printing the previous job off impression. Bypassing the AT feature allows printing of up to eight colors.
The new Sunday press at Japs-Olson will interface with an inline finishing system. Goss International will supply a Contiweb splicer, Ecocool dryer and its Goss Omnicon control system.
Japs-Olson was founded in 1907 and specializes in commercial printing and direct mail production. The company provides a complete range of prepress, digital printing, sheetfed printing, coldset and heatset web printing, and finishing capabilities as well as advanced data processing and mailing services.
