In order to meet constantly changing customer demands, Gallus is launching the "Diamond Core Series" to enhance its Labelfire product offering. From now on, four models of the Gallus Labelfire will be available – concisely and clearly defined – and tailored to the different market requirements. Digital white with high opacity is optionally available for all models.
The heart of each Gallus Labelfire is the digital print unit, the so-called “diamond core," the company states. This Digital Print Unit (DPU) enables high-quality 1200 x 1200 dpi UV inkjet printing with Samba printheads by Fujifilm. Excellent printing results are produced with pinning modules specially adapted for the inks and printheads, as well as the enhanced simulation of the Pantone Plus colour scale. In addition, all models of the Labelfire Diamond Core series convince with their high production speed with up to 70 m/m and the ability to print a variety of substrates.
"With the Gallus Labelfire Diamond Core Series, we offer a suitable range for all types of printers, regardless of their level of experience and scope of requirements," explains Thomas Schweizer, head of business management at Gallus. "In addition, we offer a fully comprehensive service. With buying this machine, all maintenance work is included in the price for the first year of operation and thereafter our customers can choose from three service basic packages with the option of flexible expansion, from the low-cost basic rate to the all-round carefree package."
In four different machine configurations, the Labelfire Diamond Core models are divided up from D1 to D4 in order to acknowledge the market demands.
The models D1 und D2 are the "working horses” of this series. They print on an industrial scale, stable, reliably and quick, direct from roll to roll. Clearly defined, with or without digital white, they are suitable for all printing companies, which have no need for inline finishing. The Labelfire D1 is the 4-colour entry level machine system into the 1200 dpi digital printing and suited for commodity labels with changing small run lengths.
The Labelfire D2 is the alternative with seven colours: CMYK plus gamut extension green, orange and violet for challenging designs like cosmetic and body care products. With the seven colours, the D2 enables up to 94% of the simulated Pantone Plus colour scale.
Whether 4-colour or 7-colour, with or without digital white, Gallus' hybrid technology offers expanded flexibility due to integrated inline finishing and embellishing modules. The Labelfire D3, the UV inkjet press with four colours, (CMYK) and the Labelfire D4 with 7 colours (CMYK GOV) are always equipped with a flexo and a diecutting unit for easy single-pass printing – from file to finished diecut label in one printing pass. In addition, as required, with either a laminating/varnishing module or a cold foil unit, a cost-effective production of finished labels is thus guaranteed even for very small print runs.
