SWITZERLAND – Gallus, one of the world’s leading partners for label printers has launched its first fully digital label press, the Gallus One to drive digital printing.

Gallus One has been specifically designed to remove the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) barrier for the adoption of reel-to-reel digital labels with the highest level of automation and cloud-based technologies.

In doing so, it provides brands, for the first time, with access to cost-effective and sustainable, high-quality digital labels.

The newly launched inkjet press is built on the market-leading Gallus Labelmaster press platform to spark transformation across the industry.

As a 340-mm wide roll-to-roll UV inkjet digital inline labels press, Gallus One utilizes a host of impressive features to achieve high levels of automation and press efficiency, with unrivaled UV inkjet print quality and stand-out print speeds of up to 70 meters per minute.

With this launch, the company hopes to reinvent the way in which converters approach digital label printing – providing either a standalone digital offering or a complimentary service within a traditional analog operation.

Dario Urbinati, Chief Sales & Service Director, Gallus Group said: “With the launch of the Gallus One, we are doing more than just bringing a new press to market – we’re providing a unique solution that has the capability to drive the next big opportunity in labels.

“With cloud capabilities in-built within Gallus One, you can not only enjoy remote set-up but transparent performance monitoring and standardization across your press portfolio and manufacturing sites.

“In conjunction with the sophisticated press design, the Gallus One offers a complete reel-to-reel digital label solution, including all the software and hardware necessary to produce high quality, profitable digital labels.”

Gallus leveraged Heidelberg ink testing laboratories to develop digital inks specifically for the Gallus One’s Fuji Dimatix print heads – with a second lab utilized to optimize its waveform design, enabling better print performance.

The Gallus One also integrates fully with the industry standard cloud-based workflow software, Heidelberg Prinect.

With its portfolio of cutting-edge technologies now extending across the conventional, hybrid and digital label markets, the launch of Gallus One enables the company to meet the needs of customers across each corner of the narrow web labels market.

Dr. Frank Schaum, CEO of Gallus Group, concludes: “Gallus One is an important addition to our portfolio.

It provides customers with a unique opportunity to pioneer a new and complimentary category of label service in the quest for significant business growth and differentiation.”
