Goss International has again been named among the recipients of a prestigious InterTech Technology Award in 2014. While extending a significant track record of technology achievements, this latest distinction marks the company’s first major award for innovation in the packaging sector.
 
“This award is particularly gratifying as it establishes Goss as a true innovator in providing a new print platform for the various packaging print sectors as well as in our more traditional sectors. It also formally acknowledges successful application in the field with user evidence that supports the value proposition,” comments Peter Walczak, Goss International director of product management for packaging presses.
 
In order to be considered for a Printing Industries of America InterTech Technology Award, a technology must be: commercially available in the marketplace, beyond beta testing and proven in industrial/commercial applications. The Goss Sunday Vpak series of presses was commended by judges for bringing “full litho benefits to packaging.” The panel commented that Vpak technology presents converters with “a new alternative to exploit the print quality, productivity and lower image cost of the web offset process, especially for shorter-run or segmented folding carton, flexible packaging and label jobs.”
 
The announcement of the award follows closely on the launch of the Goss Packaging Technology Center at its headquarters in Durham, NH. The Vpak 500 press system in operation at the center has seven web offset units as well as EB and UV curing and flexo coating capabilities offering press demonstration, testing and training sessions for customers and prospects in the Americas, Europe and Asia. It is also designed as a controlled site for suppliers interested in testing inks, chemicals and auxiliary technologies for web offset production.
