Sato UK bets on a Gallus EM 510 S
Sato UK, based in Dovercourt, Essex and employing around 60 people, made another futureproofed and well-thought-through investment with the purchase of a Gallus EM 510 S. Equipped with 4 flexo printing units, the new Gallus machine will be mainly used for the production of waterand UV-based roll-to-roll and roll-to-fold labels. Director Jason Wise is convinced that the Gallus EM 510 S will make a significant contribution to the competitive advantage of Sato UK due to its high production speed, the unique platform concept and the special modularity. In March 2013 the new Gallus press got successfully installed and therefore completed the already existing machinery consisting of 9 label printing presses. The British company was founded in 1940 and is pioneer and leading global provider of integrated automatic identification (bar code and RFID technology) as well as solution provider for data collections.
