The Gallus Labelmaster is now being delivered with extensive new and optimized features. The new operating concept not only ensures greater user convenience for the machine operator but also less waste in the daily production.

Shorter machine, less waste

Gallus can now offer an even more compact machine system. The Gallus Labelmaster now has a shorter machine length, as Corona, web cleaning, transport, and web tension are integrated in the new winding units, which means that one module can be saved. The compact design enables reduced waste thanks to a machine length that is up to 3.30 meter shorter, thus ensuring an improved ecological footprint compared to the previous version.

Ease of use

“Operator friendliness”, that is the simple and intuitive operation of the Labelmaster by the machine operator, has always been the focus of the further development of the Gallus Labelmaster. With this respect, the winder units can now not only be operated locally directly on the winder but their parameters can be viewed and adjusted centrally via the touch panel in the human-machine interface (HMI) of the machine system – in line with the “ease of use” concept.

In this regard, the loading process of the substrate has also been redesigned and completely revised. With a new trolley system, that is a mobile lift outside the printing press, the substrate can be easily loaded and unloaded without touching the ground. An integrated lift is no longer necessary and the operator can use the trolley flexibly as required, even on other machines. Simple and flexible loading of the substrate is the result.

New features as standard configuration

Further optimized features such as improved accessibility to the Corona pre-treatment and web transport modules with a quick-change system for quick and easy cleaning complete the further development of the Gallus Labelmaster.

More than 160 installations of the Gallus Labelmaster worldwide speak for the success of this flexible machine system. The Labelmaster is now available with these new features, partly included in the package as standard or depending on the wishes and needs of the printing company.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
