Elite Labels in Leicester is updating and upgrading its self-adhesive label production, taking delivery of a Gallus ECS 340 seven-colour flexo UV press next week. The company, which is part of a global group, serves mainly the fashion industry but is expanding its labels services to new industries from cosmetics to food and drink sectors.
“If self-adhesive label printers haven’t heard of Elite yet, they will soon,” says managing director Shafique Hussein. “The press will start on double day shifts but we hope to move to 24 hour working within three to six months and I will not be surprised if we take a second Gallus line in 2017.”
The Gallus was selected because other companies within the group have used the technology and given good reports on its performance and the service back up.
Quality is a key priority for Elite Labels’ customers and the ECS 340, known for its solidity because of the granite core, is a smooth running machine with a short web path of just 1.1 metres between units for maximum control. Individual servo drives on each unit combined with automation means that the presetting, register control and dynamic feed is efficient and accurate. This is a press which offers flexo units combined with screen printing, cold foil and rotary die-cutting options. It is very reliable, a real workhorse.
Elite Labels has offset, flexo, digital and rotary printing as well as weaving looms but the self-adhesive department has been ear-marked as a particular focus for company growth over the coming two years.
The press is delivered on Monday and will be assembled and taken straight into volume production.
