Bentlage-label, based in Bielefeld, Germany, has installed a Gallus ECS 340. The 8-color flexo press with integrated cold foil embossing unit produces a variety of technical labels. The machine system was installed in December 2020 in order to expand capacity.
A long-standing Gallus customer, bentlage-label was founded in 1928. The family business launched its label division in 2004 and has experienced steady growth since then. The company also has a facility in Vienna, Austria.
The main reasons for investing in this Gallus flexo press are the stability of the machine and the ability to expand the capacity, according to the company. ‘We have already had very good experiences with Gallus. The Gallus ECS 340 is stable and extremely reliable,’ said Brigitte Alers, managing director of bentlage-label.
The new Gallus ECS 340 with eight flexographic printing units and a cold foil embossing unit enables bentlage-label to print a wide range of applications. The most diverse types of technical labels are produced - from labels in the food sector up to labels for vehicles. By covering different markets, the printing company is broadly positioned.
‘We are now not only equipped at a higher level but also are in general in a better position: with the new Gallus ECS 340 we can print more colours and also apply cold foil in flexo,’ concluded Alers. ‘This expands our product portfolio a lot while at the same time having reliably high print quality and flexibility.’
