Gallus announces five-colour Labelfire

Gallus is to sell a new five-colour (CMYK+white) version of its Labelfire E340 digital hybrid flexo press. This is basically just a cheaper version of the eight colour version that was launched in 2016.

Gallus has announced a new five-colour version of its Labelfire E 340

The Labelfire is the result of a collaboration between Gallus and its parent company Heidelberg, together with Fujifilm, which supplied the digital imaging system, namely Samba printheads. The new version has the same 1200 x 1200 dpi image quality as the original but loses the orange, violet, and green inks. Naturally, customers will be able to upgrade this version to the full eight-colour version, and to add further embellishing options including screen, cold foil and additional flexo units. 

Michael Ring, Head of Digital Solutions at Gallus, says that there are many customers that don’t need the full configuration, arguing: “This new five-color version allows them to get started in the digital arena but still provides the flexibility for expansion in the future while protecting their initial investment.”

It’s also worth noting that the Labelfire can be integrated into Heidelberg’s Prinect workflow.  It’s available to order now, with deliveries expected to start in April.
