Gallus, as way to show existing and potential customers the modular advantages of its Gallus ECS 340 label press, has launched a configurator that is designed to give users a realistic idea of the machine's options. According to Gallus, the web-based tool can show converters how they can have their “dream label press” in three simple steps – a quick and easy way to identify the key benefits and the various options available. The configurator works with standard browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.
Configurator users can produce just one or an unlimited number of configurations as required. The welcome page provides general information on the key benefits of the Gallus ECS 340 such as its profitability, optimum efficiency and ease of operation. This is followed by the first step in the process – defining the basic configuration, i.e., the printing equipment and the number of inking and diecutting units.
The second step is the detailed configuration. Optional accessories can be added to each part of the Gallus ECS 340 marked with a plus sign. Clicking on one of these signs opens a pop-up window listing all the options for extending the press at this point. Clicking the “i” icon next to each option displays a brief description of the relevant item. Options such as the reel lift unwinding unit, webcleaning system, corona conditioning unit, delam/relam, ink pumps, laminating unit, cold foil mechanism, diecutting pressure and depth adjusters, web monitoring mechanism and reel lift rewind unit can be added and removed again as wanted with a simple click of the mouse.
Once the configuration has been completed, the third step enables users to print or send the image and the associated configuration details. The configuration can also be sent to Gallus with any questions or to obtain a precise price breakdown/quotation.
Gallus hopes the configurator will create added value for its potential and existing customers, while also improving the quality of the advice it offers.
