St. Gallen, October 2016 – At the Gallus Innovation Days, which took place in St.Gallen from the 20th to 22nd September, the 400th label press of the Gallus ECS 340 series was sold to the Spanish label printing company Relieves Egara. The Gallus ECS 340 is thus by far the most successful label press in its class.
"We already have several Gallus label printing machines in operation, including two Gallus ECS 340, and we are extremely satisfied with the high quality, the productivity and flexibility of these presses,”, says Josep Gamundi, CEO of Relieves Egara. “In addition, the Gallus ECS 340 features an extremely short web path and delights us again and again with extremely fast makeready times."
Relieves Egara prints with about 60 employees at its plant in Barcelona, labels and sleeves for the consumer and also for the pharmaceutical industry. Among other Gallus label presses, since 2014 the machinery of Relieves Egara includes two Gallus ECS 340, one of them with 14 positions, the other with 12 positions. "Our new Gallus ECS 340 includes 8 positions and a fully automated register control. Through our extensive facilities on the other two Gallus ECS we are able to use all our existing ECS- equipment on our latest investment such as screen printing and die cutting units and we now benefit from this machine series synergistically to our advantage. "says Josep Gamundi.
The Gallus ECS 340 is a cost-efficient, high-quality label production press. With its granite core, the press is exceptionally quiet, stable, with minimal waste and set-up times. For rapid design and color changes, the fully servo driven press allows register presetting and the extremely short web path of just 1.1 metres between printing units cuts waste significantly. The self-explanatory touch-screen technology means faster learning for operators and quicker makereadies at sustainably high quality levels. Relieves Egaras’ new Gallus ECS 340 can now use also the rotary screen printing units for extraordinary textures and visual effects while the entire configuration optimizes print value while minimizing operational costs.
