Premiere of the Digital Printbar
Numerous Gallus presses sold
Crowded live demonstrations of Gallus Labelmaster with new features and Gallus Labelfire with Digital Embellishment Unit
Gallus, a subsidiary of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, draws a positive conclusion on Labelexpo Europe 2019 . More than 5000 visitors gathered information at the Heidelberg / Gallus stand at the label show, which took place from 24 to 27 September in Brussels. Especially the live demonstrations of the Gallus Labelmaster with new and optimized functions as well as the fully equipped Gallus Labelfire digital printing press were very well attended. Numerous machine sales across the entire product portfolio were made at Labelexpo Europe 2019.
"We are more than satisfied with our exhibition at Labelexpo Europe 2019. With our live demonstrations, we were able to show our customers new ways to produce efficiently and successfully with Gallus in the age of digitization, and even gain in flexibility," explains Christof Naier, General Manager Label Business at Heidelberg/Gallus.
Great interest was shown in the new Digital Printbar, an inkjet printing unit designed specifically for digital insetting of highly opaque white. With a print width of 430 mm (17"), the Digital Printbar uses inkjet-based digital printing technology and can be used flexibly as it can be moved across the entire length of the machine.
Gallus Labelmaster with rotary quick-change die-cutting unit
At Labelexpo Europe 2019, the new rotary front-load die-cutting unit was on display at the Gallus Labelmaster. With the Rotary Die-Cut Unit Quick, Heidelberg/Gallus showed the change of die-cutting formats in less than a minute live at the label show.
In addition to the premiere of the new Digital Printbar and the new Rotary Die-Cut Unit Quick at the Gallus Labelmaster, Labelexpo visitors were able to see the Gallus Labelfire with integrated Digital Embellishment Unit (DEU) live in action. With a smoothie in hand, they could take a close look at the production of the matching smoothie label in different designs. Full-variable data printing (fVDP) on the Gallus Labelfire was often discussed during the show as well as the possibilities of the digital finishing with the integrated DEU.
Gallus sold Labelmaster No. 100
During Labelexpo Europe 2019 the 100th Gallus Labelmaster was sold. Thus, the Gallus Labelmaster is the machine system from Gallus, which has achieved the best sales figures since its market launch at the Labelexpo 2017 to this day. Consequently, it is completing the most successful launch of a product innovation in the history of Gallus.
“With our Labelexpo motto “Powered by Your Trust” and the aim of giving our customers the greatest possible flexibility in every respect, we are still on the right path to act successfully on the market, now and in the future,” Naier concludes.
