The Thallo press, which was launched in June 2015, is slated to make its drupe debut in 2016. It is a hybrid web offset printing system which has been specifically designed to produce high quality and flexible packaging.

Goss Europe managing director Bert Schoonderbeek said: "The Thallo is an innovative, cost effective solution for flexible packaging production. As such, this product fits perfectly within the Goss packaging portfolio and expands Goss's overall packaging offering which includes the VPak line of press systems.

"In addition, DG press' extensive technical and market knowledge makes them the ideal partner to continue to drive the adoption of web offset technology in the packaging sector. Both companies will work together on joint development activities which will benefit both the Thallo and Vpak models."

Goss and DG press opine that web offset carries benefits such as lower cost plates, absence of solvents, and high-quality printing on a wide range of substrates and fast make-readies, as compared with flexo and rotogravure.

The Thallo is claimed to offer all the stated advantages along with latest motion controls, easy-to-use operator interfaces and a simple, cost-effective sleeve system.

DG press co-owner and director Remko Koolbergen said: "With brands requiring shorter runs and just-in-time delivery, the Thallo is the clear choice for converters looking for an efficient, reliable solution.

"Add to that Goss' and DG press' combined expertise, engineering and R&D capabilities and we are confident that this partnership will bring many additional benefits to new and existing customers around the world."
