IGS supplies Gallus Screeny for Southeast Asian market

Repro house Innovative Graphic Solution (IGS) supplies Gallus Screeny products for all narrow-web label presses – something new for Southeast Asia. Asian label printers can now obtain everything from the pre-cut format to ready-to-use and ready-imaged printing cylinders from IGS.

It’s an open secret that Gallus Screeny works well on both Gallus and non-Gallus machines. An increasing number of label printers also want to enjoy the benefits of Gallus Screeny on their non-Gallus presses – and the ones located in Southeast Asia (SEA) are no exception. The reason for this is very simple. Gallus offers by far the widest range of screen printing plates for every conceivable application – a benefit that label printers appreciate. The success of Gallus Screeny is not explained by this extensive product portfolio alone, though. First and foremost, a screen printing plate needs to work effectively. An optimum ink flow, stability and resistance to torsional forces are fundamental prerequisites for a good screen printing plate. It is also important for the plate’s screen fabric and photopolymer layer to produce a consistently high level of precision. Put simply, a press can only deliver high-quality end products if top-quality tools/dies and consumables are used in the manufacturing process. Screen-printed “Nivea blue” should always look the same, for example. Any quality fluctuations in the screen fabric or photopolymer layer immediately lead to printing problems and, in the worst case scenario, to downtimes on the label press.

The new IGS repro house now provides Asia’s label printers with Gallus Screeny screen printing plates for rotary screen printing – an effective, tried-and-tested technology that can be used on both Gallus and non-Gallus presses. In order to be able to make the screen printing cylinders for all narrow-web label presses locally, IGS uses a special assembly unit developed by Gallus. As a result, Gallus screen printing cylinders can be used in all narrow-web label presses. IGS also offers local expert advice on screen printing and screen/combination printing. If a customer has questions relating to these types of printing, IGS provides reliable specialist support in collaboration with Gallus SEA.
