ROSEMONT, IL, USA—Gallus reports it is showing the North American narrow web industry its latest developments on its best-selling press models this week at Labelexpo Americas.
According to the OEM, the new "S" class version of the Gallus EM 260/410/510 platform series of flexo presses features sleeve technology for print and anilox cylinder-based equipment as well as direct servo drive. "[This] new S class offers significantly improved productivity and flexibility," adds Gallus.
The OEM says the upgraded press version offers a direct servo-driven hybrid-printing unit, which enables converters to utilize flexo and screen within the same printing unit. "Changeover between the two [print methodologies can be done] without breaking or even touching the web." In addition, says the manufacturer, "Real front loading of both sleeve-based print cylinders and anilox rollers allows improved ergonomics and lower production cost."
