Rako to install
two Gallus RCS 330 presses
Rako Etiketten has bought two Gallus RCS 330 servo-driven platform presses to expand capacity for small and medium sized runs on various substrates at its plant in north Germany. Both modular machines have 12 printing units and installation is planned for October and May 2006. Both offer UV flexo, rotary screen, hot foil and cold foil embossing, separately or in combination. Rako has specified Gallus’s Flying Imprint feature to change text and logos at production speed without expensive downtimes.
The Rako Group was founded by Ralph Koopmann 36 years ago. It now has 60 printing presses and around 700 employees and last year achieved sales of €120 million ($149 million). The group is expanding its international business with sites in France, Ukraine and Croatia, plus collaborations in the UK and Poland.
