Gallus to show new prototype

Gallus is set to show off a prototype of a new generation narrow web press at the Gallus Open days in Switzerland this September.

The new label press is equipped with flexo printing units and features an innovative new construction which in future could be configured to a customer’s requirement in terms of the level of automation or the web width.

To start with the press will be available in 440mm width. It will have a maximum speed of 200 m/min and extremely short setup times. Gallus has designed it for productivity, with features such as precise register accuracy regardless of speed, extremely straightforward operation even at low levels of automation, a very short web path from printing unit to printing unit and exceptionally easy changeovers. It should be commercially available from the second quarter of 2017.

The event runs from 20-22 September. The company expects to attract about 1,000 visitors with strong interest from the UK. Peter Tiany, southern sales manager for Gallus UK, commented: “Gallus Innovation Days are always popular but we believe this time round the new machine platform and some other machine innovations will bring people in to the show.”
