More than 5000 visitors gathered information at the Heidelberg/Gallus stand at Labelexpo Europe. The live demonstrations of the Gallus Labelmaster with new and optimised functions as well as the fully equipped Gallus Labelfire digital printing press were especially popular.
Numerous machine sales across the entire product portfolio were made at the show.
‘We are more than satisfied with our exhibition at Labelexpo Europe 2019. With our live demonstrations, we were able to show our customers new ways to produce efficiently and successfully with Gallus in the age of digitisation, and even gain in flexibility,’ explained Christof Naier, general manager Label Business at Heidelberg/Gallus.
Great interest was shown in the new Digital Printbar, an inkjet printing unit designed specifically for digital insetting of highly opaque white. With a print width of 430 mm, the Digital Printbar uses inkjet based digital printing technology and can be used flexibly as it can be moved across the entire length of the machine.
At Labelexpo, a new rotary front load die cutting unit was on display. With the Rotary Die Cut Unit Quick, Heidelberg/Gallus showed the change of die cutting formats in less than a minute.
In addition, visitors were able to see the Gallus Labelfire with integrated Digital Embellishment Unit (DEU) live in action. With a smoothie in hand, they could take a close look at the production of the matching smoothie label in different designs.
During Labelexpo, the 100th Gallus Labelmaster was sold.
