Goss International has announced a new collaboration with automatic blanket washing systems manufacturer Elettra Srl.
The companies say their association aims to provide new benefits for commercial press users by providing waste reductions that deliver a rapid return on investment. According to Graham Trevett, vice president of sales at Goss Americas, says, “At Goss we have been systematically working through our product portfolio looking for ways to enhance our service to customers, with a particular focus on waste.
“By investigating other suppliers in the industry and using our expertise to vet their methods and technologies, we can ensure a good fit with our own systems while giving a helping hand to customers in improving their competitive edge.”
Elettra has a portfolio of VOC-free automatic blanket washer systems featuring cloth technology. Two easy-retrofit Elettra automatic blanket wash systems that offer productivity benefits for new and existing Goss commercial presses include its FastWash and CombiWash solutions.
The FastWash, installed inside the print units, maintains a uniform mechanical and chemical action across the web width. A full FastWash cleaning cycle takes up to 12 seconds when performed while the press is in production or, at the end of the job, at a crawling press speed it takes up to 80 seconds.
The CombiWash applies cleaning solution across the entire web at the paper infeed stage. The company says waste figures average at less than 300 copies for a double-circumference heatset press and less than 600 revolutions on the Goss Sunday 3000 and 2000 presses.
Trevett says, “At Goss, we only deal with suppliers of the highest calibre for all our third-party press ancillaries and components. Through in-depth discussions with our customers, we work with them to establish the best solution for their needs, so that our press systems are always equipped with the leading technology in its class. The partnership with Elettra allows us to utilise its strengths to the benefit of our customers by offering enhanced quality, productivity and efficiency.”
