Elloflex in Brazil installs Gallus Labelmaster

First Gallus investment helps conquer new markets

Rafael Rampazzo, sales director of Elloflex says, that the company increased the efficiency of sleeve production and was able to conquer new markets due to the investment in a Gallus Labelmaster440

Higher production efficiency, reliable print quality, and the ability to enter new markets are insights for the Brazilian print shop Elloflex one year after the successful installation of a Labelmaster. The 8-color flexo narrow web press is the first Gallus press for the label printer and converter.

Gallus, a subsidiary of Heidelberg, installed the narrow web production line in the North of Parana in Brazil in December 2018. The Gallus Labelmaster includes eight flexo printing stations including cold-foil and a further unit for the rotary screen. With a printing width of 440 mm it is the first press for Elloflex and thus, the second Labelmaster for the Brazilian label and flexible package printing market.

We chose Gallus because it is a durable and stable running machine which guarantees reliable results which we can really achieve during daily production. Now, more than one year after the installation, we can say that we increased the efficiency of sleeve production and were able to conquer new markets thanks to this investment”, says Rafael Polessi Rampazzo, Commercial director at Elloflex.

Applications produced on the Labelmaster are mainly sleeves for the flexible packaging market, but also the whole range of narrow web applications can be produced on the conventional label press. Elloflex was established in 2007 and is now serving different market segments with about 110 employees.
