Expert talk

Printing labels and folding cartons on one press: The hybrid narrow web press Gallus Labelfire can also be used for the printing and processing of folding cartons applications.

Numerous macro trends in label and packaging printing require flexible machine systems.

Decisive for the efficiency of modern machine concepts in label and narrow web packaging printing are flexibility in configuration options, as well as the ability to change printing processes and jobs quickly.

Gallus Labelfire opens the access to the folding carton market.

The ability to produce labels and cartons on the same press enables label printers to expand their product portfolio.

Screen printing brings the premium effect.

Exceptional label design functions like a Trojan horse. Amazing and attractive to look at, it is uncompromisingly designed for conquest.

  • Logistics functions: Product tracking for the retail trade.
  • Security function: Protection against mix-ups, counterfeiting and theft.
