Heidelberg to Exhibit Gallus One at Labelexpo

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (HEIDELBERG) and its subsidiary Gallus will be showcasing a range of unique digital solutions at Labelexpo Europe 2023 to be held at Brussels, Belgium, from 11 to 14 September, 2023.

The systems support increased automation of the entire print ecosystem, with the aim of facilitating “smart, connected printing” to address shortage of skilled labour, increase productivity, and reduce waste. HEIDELBERG is increasingly turning to digital solutions in label printing which has a very attractive market with an annual growth rate of around 6%. The latest innovations from HEIDELBERG and Gallus underscore their commitment to boosting this digital transformation. “The new solutions that HEIDELBERG and Gallus have developed together address the most important challenges that stakeholders market-wide are facing every day, such as the shortage of skilled labour and the demand for more productivity,” comments Dr. Ludwin Monz, CEO, HEIDELBERG.

Labelexpo will mark the European trade show debut of the new Gallus One digital label press. Launched in August 2022, the Gallus One was specifically designed to remove the total cost of ownership (TCO) barrier for the adoption of reel-to-reel digital labels with the highest level of automation and cloud-based technologies, thus bringing digital label printing into the wider area. In doing so, Gallus One provides brands, for the first time, with access to cost-effective and sustainable, high-quality digital labels. Further optimizing the TCO benefits, Gallus recently launched the new Gallus One with Converting. This new solution brings everything inline, featuring a digital printer with an inline flexo station, a semi-rotary die cutter that can change a job within one minute and process up to 70 m per minute, and vision inspection systems to ensure the highest level of quality and minimize waste.

The trade show will also see Gallus highlight the newly available digital printing unit (DPU) for the Gallus ECS 340 flexo press. Launched this summer as part of the inaugural Gallus Experience Days, the DPU transforms a traditional Gallus ECS 340 into a Gallus Labelfire 340 hybrid press – but crucially, without the additional platform investment. This means that customers are now able to access all the flexibility and versatility of digital printing, but with the reliability and precision of conventional printing and further processing technology.

Labelexpo Europe 2023 will also showcase the new HEIDELBERG Customer Portal (HCP). Recently unveiled at the opening of the Gallus Group’s landmark new industry facility – the Gallus Experience Center – HCP automates almost every customer touchpoint. In an industry first, future iteration of the solution will also provide predictive capabilities utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to provide recommendations to drive productivity, reduce maintenance, and boost profitability. The new platform is expected to save customers, on average, up to 35% in both time and money.

For high-volume applications, experts from HEIDELBERG will also showcase a complete production workflow for in-mold label production, with the highest performance on the market in terms of quality, productivity, and net output.

“Labelexpo is always such a positive and inspiring arena, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity not only to showcase our latest products at the show, but also to connect with stakeholders market-wide and continue to share our vision for the industry’s future,” concludes Dario Urbinati, CEO, Gallus Group.
