Gallus Outlines New Printing Concept At Drupa

46

Gallus’ new concept the ‘System to Compose’ addresses current and evolving market needs and provides a lifeline for label printers, unlocking a host of new options across its portfolio.

Gallus Group, a subsidiary of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (HEIDELBERG), announced its new concept at drupa 2024, being held until 7 June in Düsseldorf.

With enhanced compatibility across its technologies, Gallus’ leading product lines now boast full adaptability, whereby additional units can be seamlessly added, removed or replaced much like instruments within an ensemble – encouraging label printers to ‘compose (their) print masterpiece’.

In addition, the Gallus One, previously limited to a print width of 340mm, is now also available in a print width of 430mm – increasing production efficiency, versatility, and application opportunities for new profitable revenue opportunities. Finally, Gallus has also unveiled an enhanced colour gamut for the Gallus One, with the introduction of Orange and Violet inks developed jointly in-house with HEIDELBERG, helping converters to achieve shelf standout for brand differentiation.

Concept Puts Converters Back In Control

Designed to remove the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) barrier for the adoption of reel-to-reel digital labels with the highest level of automation and cloud-based technologies, the Gallus One now offers full integration of the proven Gallus Labelmaster modules. By bringing everything in line, with upstream and downstream flexo and screen printing units, cold and hot foiling, embossing and gravure printing, as well as a die-cutting unit, the Gallus One provides very high levels of modularity, speed and quality, further reducing TCO and boosting profitability. Gallus’ new ‘plug-and-play’ approach puts converters back in control, giving them greater flexibility to build and grow their solutions, add additional capabilities or change direction as their business needs require, enabling them to improve competitiveness and respond to market changes in real time.

Dario Urbinati, Gallus Group, CEO commented, ‘We are delighted to be introducing our new concept at drupa 2024 and extending the array of instruments available for the Gallus One. Since its market debut last year, the Gallus One and our strong focus on driving down TCO seems to have captured the imagination of the industry, which resulted in a very strong sales pipeline, with installations scheduled throughout 2024. With our new concept and the new extension possibilities of the Gallus One our customers now have the opportunity to grow their solutions, adapt and facilitate change in line with customer demand enabling them to future-proof their investments.’

Supporting the methodology of smart, connected printing, the Gallus One represents a significant leap forward for the label industry. Reinventing the way in which converters approach digital label printing, the new concept not only enables them to mix and match units or extend the configuration over time, but also retrofit already existing machine set-ups. This enables owners of established Gallus Labelmaster 340/440 conventional presses to add a digital printing unit, transforming it into a bespoke hybrid Gallus One, without the investment of an entirely new machine.
