Gallus Labelfire with Low Migration successfully passes field test at SCHELLING AG


  • Produce low migration compliant applications digitally with 1200 dpi print resolution
  • SHELLING AG invests in second Gallus Labelfire

St. Gallen / Reinach, Switzerland – Field test successfully passed: this is reported by Birkhäuser + GBC AG, a subsidiary of SCHELLING AG, only a short time after the Gallus Labelfire was installed with low migration equipment. In the Reinach plant near Basel, the company has been able to print a variety of labels and flexible packaging in accordance with low migration requirements since July 2020. The native print resolution of 1200 dpi and the flexibility of the hybrid label printing press are outstanding. It is already the second for Birkhäuser.

Marcel Häsler, COO at Birkhäuser, is impressed: «The new Gallus Labelfire 340 with low migration equipment is the perfect machine for us. This digital printing press is the ideal addition not only to the flexo printing presses in this segment but also to our first Labelfire. Now we can offer the whole range of applications for the food sector, which meet all relevant low migration requirements – from flexible packaging and labels, paper bags and folding cartons to self-adhesive labels with cold foil finishing or lacquer effects.»

Decision for UV inkjet
The second hybrid press from Gallus is an important addition to the machinery in the area of labels and flexible packaging. The heart of the is the Digital Print Unit (DPU) with seven colors. Before and after the inkjet printing unit, flexo printing units provide more flexibility and cost efficiency in label and packaging printing. This is achieved through the implementation of inline production. For example, cost-effective varnish application, high-quality cold foil embossing or customer-specific printing of spot colors or white can be integrated.

The subsidiary of SCHELLING AG once again underlines its technological leadership with the Gallus Labelfire installed in July 2020. With a successful field test, this press is the second of its kind in the subsidiary in Reinach, Switzerland. Four years ago, Birkhäuser was one of the first printers on the market to invest in a . Quite a few improvements have been made since then, not only in terms of low migration compatibility, but also in terms of speed, “white line compensation” and Prinect workflow integration.
