GOSS Contiweb B. V.
Mr. Lauer knows how safety must be configured and which tolerances there are. He finds inexpensive and practicable solutions that follow the directives. His know-how is very valuable when developing machines in the low-cost segment, for example. He knows how to think safety at a reasonable price.
Project Manager Splicer, GOSS Contiweb B. V.
GOSS International is a globally successful supplier of printing presses and related finishing systems. Production takes place at locations in the USA, China and Europe. In Boxmeer, the Netherlands, special reelstands and dryers for web offset presses are developed and manufactured for the global market.
Theo Lam: “We have worked with other service providers in recent years. But our experience has not been so positive. We were often left alone with difficult details regarding safety. That’s why we have again tried to work on the subject independently. But our engineers have other priorities, such as drives or software. Because of these tasks they do not have the time to deal with the topic of safety in detail.
By cooperating with Lauer CE-Safety GmbH, we have acquired the necessary expertise and resources in-house. Since the beginning of 2014 we have been supported in the development of a new reel splicer. They not only provided us with a professional risk assessment, but also actively participated in the search for hardware and software solutions to minimize risks. Our engineers were able to implement their ideas immediately.
The communication with Mr. Lauer and his team has always worked out well. We enjoy working with them because they are active, really creative and contribute good ideas and thoughts to our goals. Especially important for us: They know a lot about the machines for the printing industry. They know what we’re talking about and are correspondingly quick on the uptake. By the way, the next joint project has already started. I can really recommend the cooperation with Lauer CE-Safety GmbH.”
Theo Lam has been project manager for splicers at the Boxmeer site since 1987 and has been part of GOSS International since 2004. The name Lauer and the good quality of the german engineering company’s services were already well known within Goss Contiweb when Theo Lam was on the hunt for external support in an ongoing project in 2013.
