Gallus One: profitable reel to reel digital labels

Label Solutions

Gallus has launched its first fully digital label press, the Gallus One. Marking a groundbreaking new addition to the company’s conventional and hybrid portfolio of label presses, the press has been specifically designed to remove the total cost of ownership barrier for the adoption of reel to reel digital labels with the highest level of automation and cloud based technologies. In doing so, it provides brands with access to cost effective and sustainable, high quality digital labels.

The Gallus One is built on the Labelmaster press platform. As a 340 mm wide roll to roll UV inkjet digital in line labels press, it utilises a host of impressive features to achieve high levels of automation and press efficiency, with outstanding UV inkjet print quality and stand out print speeds of up to 70 metres per minute. With the new press available to pre-order, the company hopes to reinvent the way in which converters approach digital label printing – providing either a standalone digital offering, or a complementary service within a traditional analogue operation.

‘With the launch of the Gallus One, we are doing more than just bringing a new press to market – we are providing a unique solution that has the capability to drive the next big opportunity in labels,’ explained Dario Urbinati, chief sales and service director, Gallus Group. ‘With cloud capabilities in-built within Gallus One, you can not only enjoy remote set up, but transparent performance monitoring and standardisation across your press portfolio and manufacturing sites. In conjunction with the sophisticated press design the press offers a complete reel to reel digital label solution, including all the software and hardware necessary to produce high quality, profitable digital labels. All this, with the highest level of automation available, and the most competitive total cost of ownership.

‘Offering all the familiarity benefits of a Labelmaster, Gallus One is a complete solution and not just a standalone print engine. Within the new ecosystem, users have state of the art inkjet technology, a new ink set, sophisticated workflow software and a new predictive press monitoring service to ensure minimum press downtime. All of these elements working in harmony, has enabled us to dramatically increase press efficiency and productivity, to unlock this new market opportunity.’

Bringing together almost a century of experience in leading the narrow web industry, together with the invaluable expertise and key resources of Heidelberg, Gallus has capitalised on the strengths of both businesses to develop the new press. For instance, Heidelberg’s ink testing laboratories were leveraged to develop specific digital inks for the Fuji Dimatix printheads – with a second lab utilised to optimise its waveform design, enabling better print performance. The machine also integrates fully with Heidelberg Prinect. Prinect allows production managers from start up label businesses to large and mature label operations, to access insights and production data to ensure optimum production – and they can do that remotely across a secure network, from any smart device.

With its portfolio of cutting edge technologies now extending across the conventional, hybrid and digital label markets, the launch of Gallus One enables the company to meet the needs of customers across each corner of the narrow web labels market.

Dr Frank Schaum, CEO Gallus Group, concluded: ‘Gallus One is an important addition to our portfolio. It provides customers with a unique opportunity to pioneer a new and complimentary category of label service in the quest for significant business growth and differentiation.’
