Gallus – Unveiling new generation machine at Innovation Days
SWITZERLAND • A prototype of a new generation press will be unveiled at the Gallus Innovation Days in Switzerland which runs from 20-22 September. This new press will be equipped with flexo printing units and features a new construction which can be configured to a customer’s requirement 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 future modular platform principle will make it possible to configure everything from basic models to fully equipped versions with varying degrees of automation.
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.
Other machines being demonstrated include the Gallus Labelfire 340 and Heidelberg Omnifire 250, both digital models, the Gallus ECS 340 equipped with GEW’s Rhino LED UV drying and the Gallus RCS 430 featuring “Metallic Doming”, a Gallus combination printing process based on rotary screen printing from Gallus, on various substrates.
Gallus partners represented at the Innovation Days include Martin Automatic, Rotometrics, Flint Group, GEW, Gietz, Polymount, Siegwerk and various substrate suppliers.
