Gallus ECS 340 – the global bestseller in its class
Since its initial launch in 2010, the Gallus ECS 340 has been the top-selling narrow-web label press. Over 200 machines have been sold worldwide, supporting Gallus customers in their day-to-day label printing work while also helping to increase productivity and cut costs. And now the tried-and-tested Gallus ECS 340 has had a makeover. This new and improved machine system is equipped with the latest technologies and is being unveiled at Labelexpo 2015 in Brussels. The integration of flexographic printing units with enhanced performance levels ensures optimum productivity combined with top quality.
The Gallus ECS 340 enables cost-efficient label production of the highest Standard
The improved Gallus ECS 340 offers users the possibility of even more cost-effective commodity label manufacture. The consistently high production quality delivered by the machine is one of the key aspects of the Gallus ECS 340. From the manufacturing stage onwards, the focus was on the most important factors for optimising print quality while also maximising the speed and minimising costs. Thanks to its granite core, the Gallus ECS 340 benefits from a particularly long service life and excellent precision. A further impressive feature is that it is quieter than any other machine in its class. The shortest web path in the label industry – 1.1 metres between printing units – and the efficiency of the Gallus ECS 340 reduce the amount of waste generated during production, which maximises the profitability of operations for printers. Further attractive benefits of the Gallus ECS 340 are its short setup times and fast job changes thanks to sleeve technology and chambered doctor blades. These features ensure top quality at all times combined with consistent reproducibility and excellent resistance to ageing over the entire service life.
The impressive new features of the Gallus ECS 340
The grand unveiling of the Gallus ECS 340 equipped with these latest technologies will take place at Labelexpo 2015 in Brussels. The addition of the new high-performance matrix stripper gives the Gallus ECS 340 an extra feature that further boosts this machine’s productivity and cost-efficiency. The new, innovative functions of this stripper represent a masterpiece of mechatronics by Gallus development engineers. The new Gallus high-performance matrix stripper was developed specifically for matrix removal with highly complex die lines at maximum speeds and enables a stable removal process at all times. What’s more, the unique combination of new servo drives and automation functions – such as presetting, register control and dynamic feed – helps Gallus ECS 340 users to ensure high productivity and achieve consistent and reproducible quality of the very highest standard. The Gallus ECS 340 is rounded off by the complete integration of a screen printing unit for the production of high-finish labels. As a result, it offers virtually limitless production options – this unique press system can do it all. back
