Heidelberg to showcase Gallus One at Labelexpo Americas 2022
Heildelberg and Gallus are jointly showcasing the fully digital Gallus One label printing system at Labelexpo Americas 2022.

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen (Heidelberg) and its Swiss subsidiary Gallus are going to showcase solutions for the growth segment of label printing in their ‘Your Partner for Label Solutions’ at Labelexpo Americas 2022, taking place from September 13 to 15 in Chicago.

One particular highlight is the new fully digital Gallus One label printing system based on the tried-and-tested Gallus Labelmaster press platform. The system is geared toward the cost-efficient and sustainable production of high-quality labels, thereby delivering a reliable return on investment (ROI) for a wide range of customers. 

As a reel-to-reel UV inkjet digital inline label press with a width of 340 mm, a resolution of 1,200 dpi, four colors plus white, and a print speed of up to 70 meters in a minute, it is suitable for a whole host of applications and therefore makes a move into digital label production particularly cost-effective. 

What’s more, Gallus One can be fully integrated into the Prinect workflow from the company. Developed jointly by Heidelberg and Gallus, the system combines the digital printing and software know-how of the market leader in sheetfed offset printing with the many years of extensive expertise Gallus of in label printing.

“Digital printing is and will remain a key technology for Heidelberg. The new Gallus One is further proof of this,” says Ludwin Monz, CEO of the company. “Our innovations in digital printing are targeting the growth markets in our core business, providing our customers with an attractive and futureproof solution, and thus creating the prerequisites for enhanced competitiveness,” he adds.

Importance of label printing

Besides the digital Gallus One, Heidelberg and Gallus will exhibit conventional solutions for cost-effective, high-quality label production. For example, visitors to the trade show can obtain information about the surface finishing options for label converters offered by Gallus Screeny printing plates for rotary screen printing and in-house development of Gallus. The unique microstructure, stabilized mesh fabric, and perfect structural balance of the photosensitive coating ensure maximum printing quality and consistency for extremely fine lines, solids, and relief printing. The effects are more eye-catching at the point of sale.

Heidelberg and Gallus will additionally exhibit their comprehensive range of Saphira consumables for flexographic printing, which is coordinated with the equipment solutions. In the future, customers in the US and Canada will be able to purchase these directly online from the Heidelberg eShop.

With their joint trade show exhibit, Heidelberg and Gallus are emphasizing how important the label market is to the Heidelberg Group in general and the Americas market in particular. “The trend toward creative, high-quality labels is continuing and growing too in the US,” says Felix Müller, president of Cluster Americas at Heidelberg. “The segment offers our customers excellent business options, especially when it comes to digital printing, and Heidelberg is showcasing its credentials as a preferred partner with an attractive portfolio at Labelexpo Americas 2022,” he concludes.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
