Rotocobrhi Purchases Goss Sunday 5000 for Increased Page Count Capability

November 13, 2017 – Rotocobrhi, a web offset printer part of the Walstead Group, has added a Goss 96-page Sunday 5000 web offset press to their existing installed base in Madrid, Spain.

The Goss Sunday 5000 96-page press will be configured with a PCF3 combination folder and an additional short grain folder, replacing two existing 48-page press. The Goss press will be used to expand Rotocobrhi’s current magazine, retail and catalogue production capabilities to increase page capacity in these markets. The Sunday 5000 will be installed in the second half on 2018 and allows 96 full A4 magazine pages per cylinder revolution to be printed with maximum operational flexibility and efficiency.

José Maria Camacho, CEO of Rotocobrhi explains that this latest purchase of a Goss Sunday 5000 will better address the retail market. “Retail is a growing market and we have seen more of our business coming from this sector, where the product adds value to the customer experience as well as promoting their merchandise. We needed to improve efficiency as well as capacity – adding the Sunday 5000 with the wider web width will help us to increase our services and productivity in the future.”

“The Sunday 5000 is designed for high output, quality and versatility,” states Theo Buchmeyer, VP Business Development at Goss. “With fast make-readies and low waste, as well as the smaller non-print area and shorter cut-off to save paper, this is an ideal solution for Rotocobrhi as they expand into the fast-moving retail market. We look forward to supporting Rotocobhri’s growth plans”

The Sunday 5000 is the world’s first 96-page web offset press, utilising the proven advantages of Goss gapless blanket technology to deliver high output and high quality. Fast make-readies and simplified operation also create a unique ability to print high pagination jobs more efficiently and competitively, even at extremely short run lengths. High speed and proven durability ensure continued performance at signature counts well into the millions. Such versatility is complemented by gapless printing, which with virtually no gap bounce, ensures that every magazine, directory, catalogue, book, insert or coupon is printed with premium quality.

Rotocobrhi is owned by Walstead Group, owners of Wyndeham Group, the UK’s largest web offset printer and Leykam Group in Austria. Walstead acquired Rotocobrhi in 2015, alongside Eurohueco, a gravure printer based in Barcelona. The combined business is the largest printer of long run commercial and publications products in Spain, specialising in the production of magazines, supplements, catalogues and flyers for the Spanish and European publishing, mail order and retail markets.
