    The Magnum® Compact Extremely fast changeovers, maximum versatility and simplified operation are advantages the Goss Magnum Compact provides for production of newspapers, books and semi-commercial products. These benefits, together with expanded uptime and low-cost end product give printers powerful benefits for single-width newspaper production and for new short-run, multi-product business models.

    Today’s cost pressures on printed media are driving printers and publishers to streamline production, reduce overheads and pursue new business models built on multiple products, faster changeovers and round-the-clock operation.

    The Magnum® Compact press system brings the benefits of automation and large-scale production efficiencies to smaller operations, delivering more flexibility and opportunity for printing newspapers, as well as books and specialized or niche publications. Magnum® Compact press introduces automatic plate loading and compact design to the single-width market sector for the first time, making it ideal for producing run lengths from as low as 500 copies, to more than 250,000.

    The design of the Magnum® Compact press is aimed at improving the print quality and flexibility achieved by conventional single-width presses, while dramatically increasing productivity, reducing product cost and minimizing environmental impact. Tackling the main sources of cost in printing, the design incorporates features for reducing overhead costs – including crew sizes – and materials consumption, while facilitating a wider application range.

    Faster make-readies with automatic plate-changing on the Magnum® Compact press, enable a full-plate change or selected plates for the next product or edition to be loaded while the press is running. With the full sequence of old plate removal and new plate loading taking the impact on manpower, make-ready waste and uptime can be dramatic.
