Jointly developed by Gallus and Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, the new digital inline label printing system features a printing module with stateof- the-art inkjet printing heads. The strengths of digital printing combined with inline finishing processes that have been specially optimised for digital printing enable the Gallus Labelfire 340 to varnish, embellish and further process labels inline – from the roll to the finished die-cut label in a single production operation.
Innovative quality of the highest standard
With the Gallus Labelfire 340, the engineers at Gallus and Heidelberg have succeeded in developing a highly innovative digital converting system. The compact digital production system combines unrivalled UV inkjet printing quality and maximum-efficiency digital printing with the inline productivity and speed of flexographic printing. It goes without saying that this industrial inkjet press system also meets Gallus’s high standards in terms of register accuracy.
The Gallus Labelfire 340 is a system with an end-to-end logical operating concept that integrates digital printing with conventional printing and further processing. Labels are produced inline in a single production operation – from the unprinted roll to the matrix-stripped end product. A key benefit of the Gallus Labelfire 340 press system is its outstanding flexibility. The digital printing unit even enables cost-effective production of runs with variable data, versioning and short runs.
Thanks to its innovative integration concept, the Gallus Labelfire 340 combines digital printing with conventional inline finishing and further processing in one system. Labels are produced inline from the reel to the end product in a single pass – just as label printers require.
The digital flexibility of the new Gallus Labelfire 340 enjoys unprecedented levels of integration thanks to conventional application modules.
For more than 90 years, the motto at Gallus has been “success and security for the labelprinter”. Collaboration with Heidelberg, a partner with decades of experience in digital prepress and solid press engineering, created the perfect conditions for the development of a unique industrial inkjet production system in the form of the Gallus Labelfire 340.
The unique Gallus Labelfire 340 is designed with the future in mind. Reductions in tool costs as well as waste and setup times mean the industrial inkjet production system is raising the bar in terms of digital label printing profitability, even with short runs and versioned jobs.
