RBW Graphics upgrades Goss M-3000 press

PKBR Staff Writer Published 14 November 2017

TC Transcontinental – RBW Graphics has upgraded its Goss M-3000 press, as part of its efforts to expand its production operations.

The company has completed a suite of upgrades to a Goss M-3000 press at its facility in Owen Sound, Ontario.

RBW Graphics has added drives and controls system to the press, in addition to Omni Make-Ready bundle and ink fountain.

The drives and controls upgrade included replacing existing consoles with new Omnicon and Omnicolor consoles.

It has also added new Siemens PLC CPU hardware, controllers and drives to the press.

Goss has reconstructed the ink fountains on eight existing units, as well as added new four and 16 channel driver boards, embedded controller boards, ink fountain balls, and single piece ink keys.

Omni make ready package is a combination of hardware and software functions, which will help to reduce waste, decrease unscheduled press downtime and increase productivity.

RBW Graphics maintenance and engineering manager Ted Schneider said: “The new upgrades will also help to gain efficiencies and help to provide consistency in quality.

By adding the Omnicon control system to this press, it aligns with the operating platforms on our other Goss Sunday presses which all run the Omnicon system.”

“This was a large project but because of the Goss technical staff and project manager this upgrade was implemented with minimal issues.”
