Goss launches Omnicolor II update for M600

Goss has announced an Omnicolor II upgrade for its M600 16-page web press. This press control is said to reduce start-up waste by anything from 20 up to 50 percent.

The Omnicolor II has been designed to achieve a more automated process to support the press operator. The ability to automate press setting direct from CIP3 data reduces a three-stage process down to a single step, resulting in less waiting time and eliminating error potential. Benefits include pre-setting of the ink keys, the ability to move all ink keys simultaneously as well as new functionality such as Ink Tracking and Colour Boost to achieve good colour quickly.

The Omnicolor II benefits from the latest hardware components used in the Omnicon controls system to reduce obsolescence, increase the reliability of the hard disk as well as a large touchscreen display and HMI software.

It takes Goss engineers between two and four days to install the new update to existing M-600 systems.

Goss has prepared an ROI calculator to help customers evaluate the potential gains from this upgrade. Rutger Jansen, head of customer service for Goss Europe, explained: “Together, we plot in their average number of jobs and current makeready figures against the investment cost and the new figures they can reliably expect.”
