Brazil's Flexcoat Labels adds another Gallus press

June 3, 2014

The converter's fourth Gallus, the RCS 430 is equipped with five flexographic, six offset and six screen-printing stations.

Flexcoat Labels, a label printer in Louveira, Brazil, has announced the purchase of its fourth Gallus press, an RCS 430. Equipped with five flexographic, six offset and six screen-printing stations and both cold-foil and hot-foil embossing units for surface finishing, the Gallus press is primarily used to produce FMCG labels for cosmetics, food and personal hygiene applications. A rotary embossing unit for relief embossing, a diecutting unit with cutting depth adjustment (including rewinding), two unwinding units and two conditioning units with web-cleaning system and corona treatment provide the finishing touches for the new acquisition.

Founded in 2006, Flexcoat has been using Gallus presses since 2011, when it purchased three at once – two Gallus EM 280 presses and a Gallus RCS 430. The investment laid the foundation for a sound and lasting business relationship between the two companies. "Nowadays, it is increasingly important for a business partner to be both reliable and flexible. The proximity of the Brazilian Gallus sales and service organization is also a key factor for us when it comes to ensuring good cooperation. With its global sales and service organisations, Gallus was the ideal choice for comprehensive on-site support. All in all, we can sum up our experience as extremely positive and can confirm that investing in Gallus presses has brought Flexcoat Labels sustainable growth and will no doubt continue to do so," says Flexcoat's owner Mr. Jocionis.

Jocionis adds: "Selecting the machine system was ultimately an easy decision to make, because the Gallus RCS 430 meets all the requirements for the production of special applications with two-ply labels. What's more, our press operators have been totally won over by its ergonomic design and easy handling."

The modular concept of the new RCS 430 ensures that the printing units can be inserted very quickly at any location in just a few simple steps without separating the web. The design of the Gallus RCS, combined with the drive and control technology, optimizes long-term print quality and reliability in production.

Marcelo Zandomenico, managing director of Gallus Brazil, is delighted about the trust placed in Gallus by Flexcoat Labels and the successes achieved not only with this company but throughout Brazil's label market. "I'm convinced that the economic and quality assurance credentials of Gallus machine systems and our focus on the specific needs of our customers are the key features that enable Flexcoat Labels to stand out from the competition," he says.
