Siemens Energy & Automation and Goss International recently celebrated the installation of the 500,000th Masterdrives ac motion control and vector control drive that Siemens has distributed worldwide. Goss designs and manufactures web offset printing press and postpress systems, and has been a Siemens global partner and Masterdrives user since the drives were introduced in 1997.

To mark the occasion, Aubert Martin, Siemens E&A’s president, presented Jochen Meissner, Goss’ COO, with a commemorative plaque at the Goss facility in Dover, NH. “We’ve enjoyed a true partnership with Goss, and we look forward to continuing being part of its success,” says Martin. “Masterdrives modularity, control accuracy, and reliability have helped Goss, machine builders, and end-users worldwide lower maintenance costs, reduce installation times, and increase reliability.”
