    Description

    Print flexibility is the key advantage with the two Universal® Press models and their ability to be configured for either coldest or heatset production. The versatile press serves the market for local and regional mid-volume products. It covers a wide spectrum of production applications, ranging from the weekly printing of a single title, to non-stop daily contract production of newspapers, free sheets, supplements, inserts and directories.

    Customization of each of the models is easily accomplished to match speed, run-length and deadline requirements. The Universal® Press is the perfect solution for a wide range of newspaper and semi-commercial applications.

    More color, higher quality, multiple editions and tighter targeting–all are pushed to top priority requirements in an increasingly sophisticated localized print market. The Goss Universal® press, with its flexibility and production “horsepower”, meets the required criteria with production capabilities up to 50,000 and 80,000 copies per hour, respectively.
