Gallus – Innovation Days 2016

SWITZERLAND • The second Gallus Innovation Days event will be held from 20 to 22 September 2016, again at the company headquarters in St.Gallen. On display will be the first pre-series model of a new machine generation – a conventional label printing machine, equipped with flexo-printing units, that is designed for the label and packaging market. This machine boasts an innovative new platform construction and can be configured by customers to meet their own market requirements, whether in terms of the level of automation or the web width. Gallus will launch the first series machines with a width of 440 mm (17..3 fpm). The modular platform principle makes it possible to configure everything from basic models to fully equipped versions with varying degrees of automation according to requirements and business model.

With its maximum speed of 200 m/min(656 fpm) and very short setup times, these printing presses are the fastest narrow-web machines that Gallus has ever built. The machine offers features such as register accuracy regardless of speed, extremely straightforward operation even at low levels of automation, and very short web path from printing unit to printing unit. The sales launch for this new Gallus machine platform will be at the Innovation Days 2016 and first deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2017.

The Gallus Innovation Days will also showcase other innovations from the company’s  product and service portfolio. The programme of this three-day trade fair is rounded off with presentations by partners and expert contributions on the trends and developments in label printing.
