The Linoprint L uses the drop-on-demand inkjet method and offers a native resolution of 600 dpi and a printing speed of up to 48 meters per minute in four-color mode. The system therefore complements Gallus’ current flexographic, offset and screenprinting range as it offers a digital product that can print short or variable label runs.
"As a highly flexible nearline solution, the Linoprint L was the biggest crowd-puller at this year’s Labelexpo, together with the Gallus ECS C," the company says. "These devices combine the benefits of high-resolution, four-color, digital inkjet printing and conventional high-performance finishing. Labels can be printed digitally inline on the Linoprint L and finished and die cut on the Gallus ECS C as required, or the two machines can be operated independently offline. It is easy to switch between the two modes of operation at the touch of a button. Thanks to this unique combination option, label printers remain highly flexible and can avoid downtimes while also benefiting from cost-effective production."
Gallus is working closely with Heidelberg on further developing its range of digital services for industrial label printing in the areas of workflow management, prepress and color management.
