Gallus Open Day Highlights the Latest in Label Production
More than 130 visitors came to the Gallus Open Day event, which took place on Feb. 6, 2020 in St. Gallen, Switzerland. The Gallus Labelmaster and Labelfire printing systems were demonstrated live at the Print Media Center Label. In the Knowledge Forum, printing experts talked about the latest developments regarding low migration as well as digital white applications.
The first Gallus Open Day in 2020 in Switzerland was packed with insights into Gallus and Heidelberg solutions and innovative applications for a smart label production. Visitors were able to see efficient state-of-the-art label production as well as the latest Labelexpo highlights:
- Gallus Labelfire with Digital Embellishment Unit (DEU) and Digital Metallic Doming
- Gallus Labelmaster with new Digital Printbar and the new Rotary Diecut Unit Quick
Your Partner for Digital
During the Gallus Open Day, the ease and cost-efficiency of label production with the Gallus Labelfire was demonstrated, with its speeds up to 70 m/min (230 ft/min). The hybrid press has a digital heart and an inkjet print unit with seven colors. The Labelfire was demonstrated with the Digital Embellishment Unit (DEU) in order to show the production of highly embellished products. This module can be optionally integrated. Digital foiling effects as well as relief and haptic effects impressed the customers at the event.
Key Topics: Low Migration and Digital Modules
Gallus Labelmaster with the new Digital Printbar was explained in detail during the workshop about digital modules. Printing digital white with inkjet can now be included on each Gallus machine system by adding the Digital Printbar. Premiered at Labelexpo Europe 2019, the sales release is planned for the third quarter of 2020.
In the Print Media Center visitors could further see how efficient label production is possible, shown on a Gallus Labelmaster Advanced with a production speed of up to 200 m/min. A further part of the open day event for invited guests were expert talks on low migration requirements, one of the most relevant topics within the label printing market.
The next event for customers and interested printers and converters will be in June 2020 during Heidelberg's “drupa at Wiesloch” at the headquarters of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, taking place from June 18-20 and 22-23, 2020.
