A successful label gets itself noticed, which is why the use of new, innovative materials is becoming increasingly important.
Nowadays, printing applications cover everything from conventional self-adhesive labels to the latest monofoils and composite materials. In addition to various mainstream printing methods, a number of different finishing processes such as screen printing, hot/cold foil embossing, and relief embossing are also used.
Flexible and scalable production resources and sound know-how are required to handle the many different materials and master a huge range of printing and finishing processes.
Laminates, or composite materials as they are also known, are used in applications with both functional and decorative requirements. In many cases, the materials used are aluminized plastics or plastic composites such as tubular laminates and bags.
Something all laminates have in common are high material costs. This makes reducing waste a key issue.
Gallus presses minimize waste thanks to their ergonomic design, intelligent presetting concepts, dynamic process parameters, and efficient register control.
