The production lines were delivered and installed within a few weeks in February and March 2021 and are mainly used for the production of highly embellished labels.
The first of the two Gallus Labelmaster is an 8-color flexographic press, equipped with a cold foil embossing unit, the possibility of lamination and a MR Touch rewinder and offers ideal conditions for the production of high-end labels. The second Gallus Labelmaster includes five flexo printing units as well as the option of back printing on glue (delam-relam). Due to the web shifting device, HP-ETIKETT is able to print and diecut multi-layer labels with the 5-color Labelmaster. With a printing width of 440 mm, both lines are equipped with an LED UV ink curing system from GEW, a rotary die-cutting unit and the rewinder MR Touch Quick.
"I am still enthusiastic about the flexibility of the Gallus Labelmaster, even after several months of use," states Eugen Kölling from HP-ETIKETT GmbH & Co. KG. "The handling of the machine system is intuitive, i.e. the presses are easy to use by our operators, easily accessible with a quick set up."
Kölling continues, "In autumn 2020 we made the deliberate decision to invest in LED-UV technology. This enables us to further reduce our CO2 emissions and make production more efficient in the long term. The Gallus Labelmaster can be used flexibly, but also the details are convincing. For example, we can change ink chambers within a very short time: the operator prepares and cleans the ink chamber outside of the machine; the change is quick and clean within a few minutes."
Concludes Kölling, "With the two Gallus Labelmaster, we have the proven Gallus quality, professional service and machine systems which can be used flexibly and quickly."
