Gallus, based in St. Gallen, Switzerland, is featuring its presses and digital workflow systems. The featured presses, which the company has provided several demonstrations, include the RCS 330 and the TCS 250.
Felix Egger, VP of marketing, talked about the TCS 250 as the company's "answer to short run." He said the press is fully servo driven, does not require any tooling, and produces a minimal amount of waste, thus generating cost savings. On display are label applications created by the TCS 250 for wine and liquor products. He talked about how the Gallus digital workflow helps printers optimize the sequence of a job through planning, monitoring, and scheduling programs.
In addition to promoting the TCS 250 as a means of promoting the Gallus digital workflow, the RCS 330 was also on display and the focal point of several demonstrations. "The RCS 330 represents the industry benchmark as the only fully servo driven press in the market with the highest throughput," Egger said. "Drive technology and open face architecture is the key," he added.
Gallus is also demonstrating the new Gallus Digital Screeny, which uses digital laser ablation technology to produce plates without the need for films.
