Goss International has introduced a Universal XL press available in a 4x2 format. The double-width Universal XL presses complement the single-width Universal and higher-performance Uniliner 4x1 and 4x2 presses within the Goss portfolio. The new 4x2 Universal XL model can produce up to 75,000 copies per hour and is available in web widths of up to 1220 millimeters (48 inches). Goss Uniliner presses operate at higher speeds and are available in web widths of up to 1900 millimeters (75 inches).
The Universal XL presses are based on the proven Universal press platform and also incorporate technologies and design elements found in Uniliner presses. The Universal XL 4x2 press can be installed in single- or double-former configurations. A Goss 2:3:3 folder can be equipped with a quarterfold option, extending the application range to magazine-size newspaper supplements and semi-commercial products. As with all Universal and Uniliner models, the new press can be configured for coldset, heatset, UV or combined production, and the reelstands can be positioned under the towers or at right angles to the press in the Goss T90 arrangement.
