At Labelexpo, Gallus is showing the latest developments on three of its press lines. These include a new web width of 430mm for the fully direct servo driven RCS, which at the show is running a high quality beauty care label with offset in combination with screen, cold foil and flexo, followed by a typical wet glue beverage offset application.
There is also a new web width for the multi substrate, multi process EM 340/410/510 S press, being shown in the new 340mm version, with its hybrid servo driven print cylinder and sleeve technology running a flexo/screen combination job with multi stream cold foil.
The ‘entry level’ Gallus EM 280 has a new outfeed section and a new substrate thickness compensation to enhance its substrate versatility. At the Brussels show, a promotional label with eye catching screen effects is being demonstrated, as well as a second application involving a food commodity label.
The screen plates used are Gallus’ new generation Screeny S, which incorporate a new mesh/nickel plating said to make them more flexible and less vulnerable to damage from web splices or dust from paper substrates. The Screeny S plate is designed to be re-used up to six times.
In addition, the Swiss manufacture has introduced the Gallus Product Bar, a forum for discussions on print technology, processes and substrates. It is hosted by Gallus specialists who have a wide range of experience working with label printers/converters, partners and suppliers of the label industry.
