Quality and precision – the all-important difference
Print results that exhibit consistent quality are the all-important difference to printing on the Gallus ECS 340. That is just one reason why this short web path label printing press has been so hugely successful and become the best-selling press in its class since it was launched. In the label printing industry, the Gallus name is a byword for quality and precision.

Cost-effective on the flyGallusECS340_webpath
Top speed label production at exceptionally low costs – that is the Gallus ECS 340. The shortest web path in the label printing industry and outstanding press efficiency ensure that production waste is hugely reduced. Even at high speeds, the Gallus ECS 340 runs extremely quietly and smoothly, which is down to the machine’s solid and robust granite core, which exhibits excellent damping properties. It is also a material that doesn’t conduct electricity and isn’t magnetic, which helps to counteract any build-up of static charges on the press. Designed as a modular system, the Gallus ECS 340 can be freely extended as required, 2 modules at a time. As a result, it supports the flexible use of a whole range of applications and embellishing techniques such as flexographic and screen printing, cold foil and rotary die-cutting. Moreover, the Gallus ECS 340 uses tried-and-tested Gallus sleeve technology. Aluminium printing cylinder sleeves ensure high printing quality with consistent reproducibility and maximum ageing stability throughout their entire service life.
