The Gallus Labelfire is a
system with an end-to-end logical operating concept that integrates
digital printing with conventional printing and further processing.
Labels are produced inline in a single production operation – from the
unprinted roll to the matrix-stripped end product. A key benefit of the
Gallus Labelfire press system is its outstanding flexibility. The
digital printing unit even enables cost-effective production of runs
with variable data, versioning and short runs.
Inline processing in a single step
integrated Gallus ECS modules support the digital flexibility of the
Gallus Labelfire 340 printing unit in delivering top print quality. The
strengths of digital printing combined with those of the inline further
processing operations of a conventional label printing press optimised
for digital printing open up a wide variety of possibilities. For the
first time, labels can be varnished, laminated, embellished with cold
foil and die-cut in a single operation. The conventional modules support
the use of primer, spot colour, security or cold foil features, varnish
or lamination without interrupting production, and regardless of the
complexity of the label. Even before digital printing, the Gallus
Labelfire is able to combine special effects such as metallic or neon
colours or flexo white and add spot colours.
Maximum flexibility in substrates
Gallus Labelfire digital press system offers label printers an
unprecedented variety of substrates. There is no need for additional
priming or varnishing. Coated path rollers, pressure arms and a cooling
roller mean the industrial inkjet system is suitable for processing
temperature-sensitive and thin substrates. The printing system also
delivers high levels of flexibility when it comes to applications, with
no change-over to additional digital colours being required, e.g. the
use of digital white. Following prepress preparation, data for job
changes is easily uploaded at the touch of a button via the integrated
Gallus HMI touchscreen control panel that also controls the digital and
conventional Gallus Labelfire modules with the same operating logic.
Regardless of the material and die-cutting line length, most common
substrates can be die-cut thanks to the semi-rotary die-cutting unit.
Direct matrix removal ensures clean and constant print results, even for
complex die-cutting contours of up to 70 m/min.
The proven modular system of the Gallus ECS 340 optimises the flexibility of the Gallus Labelfire.
The fully integrated Gallus HMI is the central operating station that controls the entire machine.
Optional slitter avail-able in rotary blade and/or razor blade design.
Maximum integration for ultimate productivity
a highly efficient industrial production system, the Gallus Labelfire
excels when it comes to short and medium runs and above. A single
operation is all that is required from substrate to the finished roll of
labels, with no need for production or machine stops for completion or

digital front end of the Gallus Labelfire delivers a number of
impressive practical functions including spot colour matching, the PDF
Toolbox and Prepress Manager, to name but a few. All conventional print
functions available meet the requirements for efficient production of
short runs through optimised setup times, minimal waste and tool costs.
In addition, the double rewinders enable rapid changeovers and crossed
winding of small narrow rolls and also support minimal setup times.

more than 90 years, the motto at Gallus has been “success and security
for the labelprinter”. Collaboration with Heidelberg, a partner with
decades of experience in digital prepress and solid press engineering,
created the perfect conditions for the development of a unique
industrial inkjet production system in the form of the Gallus Labelfire.
