Gallus organises “Short Run Days” in St.Gallen

More and more label printers are facing the challenge of making short-run production cost efficient. In response to this trend and to coincide with the 200th Gallus ECS 340 to be successfully installed since this machine system was launched at Labelexpo 2009, Gallus is inviting potential customers from the whole of Europe and the rest of the world to St.Gallen for the “Gallus Short Run Days” on 10 and 11 April 2014.

On two information-packed days with four different workshops, participants will be able to watch live demonstrations of the Gallus ECS 340 with “Plus” update package and also the near-line solution comprising the Linoprint L digital drop-on-demand (DoD) system and the Gallus ECS C converting system. 

The first live demonstration will be devoted to the “Plus” update package of the Gallus ECS 340. The package features a screen printing unit, more powerful UV curing, a secondary rail system, new unwinding and rewinding equipment and a foil kit for monofoil substrates, a software update with a higher maximum machine speed, and a new touchscreen user interface. This upgrade has significantly expanded the Gallus ECS 340’s range of applications and has also made it far more powerful.

A further live demonstration will focus on the ever-increasing demand for short runs and runs with variable data. Comprising the Linoprint L digital press and the Gallus ECS C digital converting system, the highly flexible near-line solution from Gallus combines the benefits of high-resolution, four-colour digital inkjet printing and conventional high-performance finishing.

Interesting and informative talks and discussions with experienced speakers will provide the ideal complement to the live demonstrations. They will focus on the future of inkjet-based digital printing for professional labelprinters, the key factors influencing flexographic printing and the latest MIS workflow software, including acquisition of operating data, which will be presented by Belgian company CERM. Visitors to either of the “Gallus Short Run Days” will have the opportunity to find out everything they need to know about working with short runs.

A team of experts will also be on hand to address any concerns and answer any questions directly.
