Gallus ECS 340 goes to UK

October 24, 2011

TPL Labels, a Scottish converter, ordered an eight-color Gallus press on the last day of Labelexpo Europe 2011.

The principals of TPL Labels, based in East Kilbride, Scotland, visited the Gallus booth at Labelexpo Europe 2011 on October 1 – the last day of the trade show – and ordered an eight-color ECS 340 press, the recently introduced servo press supported by a granite base.

TPL will install the new press in January as part of an on-going major investment program that will aid the company in its expansion plans within the industrial, automotive, healthcare, food and drink markets. The acquisition of the press will add significant capacity for the production of labels and short-run flexible packaging, such as film wrappers and small cartons. The company says that it expects to add digital printing to its existing process range in the near future.

The Gallus ECS 340 is a short web path, fully servo-driven, multi-pass flexo and cold foiling machine with front loading dies, print and anilox sleeves.
