  • Quality and productivity will provide competitive edge for China’s largest newspaper group

August 29th, 2007 – Guangdong China Sunshine Media Co.Ltd, a subsidiary of the leading Chinese newspaper media group, Guangzhou Daily, has invested in a Goss Newsliner press to increase its color and pagination capacity to win more contract print work.

The new 4x2 shaftless press will print at speeds up to 75,000 cph and will be configured as four four-high towers with two 2:3:3 jaw folders and six reelstands. The press will be capable of printing 96 broadsheet pages, with 32 pages in full color, and spot color capability on the remaining 64 pages. The flexible configuration has been selected to provide Guangzhou Daily with greater opportunities to produce a more diverse range of newspaper products, especially for the contract printing market.
