Gintzler Graphics buys second Gallus press

December 4, 2012

The new Gallus ECS 340 will be the same configuration as the Texas converter's original, with the addition of a rotary screen unit and register control.

Gallus, Inc. is pleased to announce the sale of a new Gallus ECS 340 flexographic press to Gintzler Graphics, its second since the model was first introduced at Labelexpo 2009 in Brussels.

"We use Gallus flexo presses in both of our facilities, here in Buffalo and in Liberty Hill, Texas," says Gintzler president, Bryan Scheible. "They are extremely user-friendly and robust, which translates to very high reliability and performance with hardly any downtime. And if we do have an issue, the Gallus support staff is right there to help us. For these reasons and more, there was really no question about what narrow web press we wanted."

The new press will be the same configuration as the original, but with the addition of a rotary screen unit and register control. Gintzler Graphics is a custom manufacturer that "prides itself on its ability to deliver unique label printing solutions for its medical and health & beauty customers." In order to achieve this goal, the company says it often needs to modify flexographic presses with new features. "In these cases, the Gallus team has been able to engineer solutions to achieve the top quality results we needed," the company says.

"Since we acquired the first press, we have been sold on the ECS 340's extremely short web path. The new press includes enhanced impression cylinder adjustments that will speed make-ready even further, helping us reduce waste to an absolute minimum.

"Gallus helps us achieve award-winning quality, and that allows us to help our customers sell more product," Scheible continued. "The addition of a second Gallus ECS 340 will certainly help us maintain our excellent reputation and give us a boost to do more high quality work."

Delivery of the new Gallus ECS 340 in Buffalo is expected in late December, and will be fully operational by early to mid January.
