Gallus promotes flexo and digital innovations

September 28, 2011

Gradual upgrades to the ECS 340 press are now available, as are digital systems from Heidelberg, Gallus’ partner.

Gallus Group, which introduced its basic ECS 340 flexographic “rock press” two years ago, has expanded the capabilities of the press by making several options available to converters. These include register control, aluminum printing cylinder sleeves, diecut depth adjustment, machine software enhancements to further improve production, hot air drying, and a cross-cutting unit with sheet delivery.

The trend toward digitalization has made digital printing systems available to Gallus customers, said President Klaus Bachstein. Heidelberg’s Linoprint DriveLine B rollfed inkjet press is on display at the Gallus booth, as is the new high end CSAT ITS 600. CSAT, a German manufacturer, was recently acquired by Heidelberg.

Gallus also introduced a digital converting unit, created from ECS 340 modules and supported by the granite base incorporated into that press.
