Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (HEIDELBERG) and its Swiss subsidiary Gallus are showcasing solutions for the growth segment of label printing in their “Your Partner for Label Solutions” exhibit (Stand 3228) at Labelexpo Americas 2022. The fair is taking place from September 13 to 15 in Chicago. One particular highlight is the new fully digital Gallus One label printing system, which is based on the tried-and-tested Gallus Labelmaster press platform. The system is geared toward the cost-efficient and sustainable production of high-quality labels, thereby delivering a reliable return on investment (ROI) for a wide range of customers. As a reel-to-reel UV inkjet digital inline label press with a width of 340 mm, a resolution of 1,200 dpi, four colors plus white, and a print speed of up to 70 meters per minute, it is suitable for a whole host of applications and therefore makes a move into digital label production particularly cost-effective. What’s more, Gallus One can be fully integrated into the Prinect workflow from HEIDELBERG. Developed jointly by HEIDELBERG and Gallus, the system combines the digital printing and software know-how of the market leader in sheetfed offset printing with the many years of extensive expertise Gallus in label printing.
“Digital printing is and will remain a key technology for HEIDELBERG! The new Gallus One is further proof of this,” says Dr. Ludwin Monz, CEO of HEIDELBERG. “Our innovations in digital printing are targeting the growth markets in our core business, providing our customers with an attractive and futureproof solution, and thus creating the prerequisites for enhanced competitiveness,” he adds.
