Tuesday, July 16, 2019
Press release from the issuing company
St. Gallen – Gallus, a subsidiary of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, will be focusing on the digitization of label production at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe 2019, which is taking place on September 24 – 27 in Brussels. 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. Gallus will be exhibiting at Stand B28/C31 in Hall 5.
“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,” explains Christof Naier, General Manager Label Business at Heidelberg/Gallus.
Launch of the Digital Printbar
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.
One big advantage of this technology is its impressive flexibility. If different languages are required, for example, no additional hardware is needed for this type of insetting. Depending on the job requirements, this new digital embellishing unit can be a highly cost-efficient alternative to conventional embellishing methods. The printbar has a touchscreen interface for intuitive operation. It also benefits from quick and easy integration into the workflow via Ethernet or USB. Consequently, the Digital Printbar maximizes the process flexibility of label printers and processors during label production.

Industrial variable data printing (iVDP) is no problem either with the Gallus Labelfire. Operators can use this digital label press to print even very small batch sizes as well as items including bar codes, 2D codes, and serialized or personalized labels, which are in ever greater demand. Moreover, the Gallus Labelfire hybrid label printing system gives label printers the flexibility to combine additional conventional printing and embellishing processes such as flexo, screen-printing, and cold-foil embellishment with the possibilities of digital printing.
