The new label press system is based on Fujifilm’s state-of-the-art inkjet technology and is the result of a joint development between Heidelberg, Gallus and Fujifilm.
“Since our announcement in 2013 on rapidly expanding digital business in collaboration with successful partners and offering new business models and applications to users in the packaging and commercial printing sectors, we’ve come along in leaps and bounds and introduced the first products,” said Jason Oliver, head of Digital at Heidelberg. “In launching a digital web press, we have reached a key milestone. At next year’s drupa we’ll also be showcasing digital print innovations for sheetfed printing and thus rapidly expanding our digital portfolio.”
Heidelberg acquired the Gallus Group, the Swiss manufacturer of web presses for the label and folding carton market, about a year ago.
