Gallus, a subsidiary of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG
, will be focusing on the digitization of label production at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe 2019 (Sept. 24-27 in Brussels).
Gallus will be exhibiting at Stand B28/C31 in Hall 5.
Under its motto for the event – “Powered by Your Trust” – the Heidelberg/Gallus team will be exhibiting a wide range of label printing presses equipped with new functions that enable customers to benefit from higher quality standards in digital embellishment, produce variable print applications, and improve productivity in conventional label production.
In addition to the premiere of the new Digital Printbar – a digital embellishing unit designed specifically for opaque white – the showcase in Brussels will also include live demonstrations of a new quick-change die-cut unit on the Gallus Labelmaster Advanced. Further highlights on the Gallus Labelfire digital label printing press will include fully variable data printing (fVDP for short) and the Digital Embellishment Unit.
“Digitization is now also part and parcel of label production. The Heidelberg/Gallus team will be fully embracing this trend at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe 2019 with a view to showing existing and potential customers new ways of maintaining and further improving their competitiveness in the age of digitization,” said Christof Naier, GM Label Business at Heidelberg/Gallus.
Gallus will be using Labelexpo Europe 2019 to unveil the new Digital Printbar, an inkjet printing unit designed specifically for digital insetting of highly opaque, digital white. With a printing width of 430 millimeters (17 inches), the new, shiftable Digital Printbar benefits from inkjet-based digital print technology and achieves an opacity to rival that of conventional screen printing.
The new Digital Printbar will be showcased on the Gallus Labelmaster machine system but can easily be integrated into other systems such as the Gallus Labelfire or Gallus RCS 430.
