Gallus unveils System to Compose concept at drupa

The new concept enhances compatibility and boasts full adaptability, whereby additional units can be added, removed or replaced.

Gallus has announced System to Compose, its new concept addressing current and evolving market needs and providing a lifeline for label printers, unlocking a range of new options across its portfolio.

With enhanced compatibility across its technologies, Gallus’ product lines now boast full adaptability, whereby additional units can be added, removed or replaced encouraging label printers to ‘compose their print masterpiece’.

In addition, the Gallus One, previously limited to a print width of 340mm, is now also available in a print width of 430mm – increasing production efficiency, versatility, and application opportunities for new profitable revenue opportunities.

The company has also unveiled an enhanced color gamut for the Gallus One, with the introduction of Orange and Violet inks developed jointly in-house with Heidelberg, helping converters to achieve shelf stand out for brand differentiation.

Gallus One now offers full integration of the Gallus Labelmaster modules, bringing everything in line, with upstream and downstream flexo and screen-printing units, cold and hot foiling, embossing and gravure printing, as well as a die-cutting unit. The machine now provides a high level of modularity, speed and quality – further reducing TCO and boosting profitability.

Gallus’ new plug-and-play approach puts converters back in control, giving them greater flexibility to build and grow their technology, add additional capabilities or change direction as their business needs require.

Dario Urbinati, Gallus Group, CEO commented: ‘We are delighted to be introducing our new concept at drupa 2024 and extending the array of instruments available for the Gallus One. Since its market debut last year, the Gallus One and our strong focus on driving down TCO seems to have captured the imagination of the industry, which resulted in a very strong sales pipeline, with installations scheduled throughout 2024.

‘With our new concept and the new extension possibilities of the Gallus One our customers now have the opportunity to grow their solutions, adapt and facilitate change in line with customer demand enabling them to future-proof their investments.’

The new concept enables converters to mix and match units or extend the configuration over time, but also retrofit already existing machine setups. This enables owners of Gallus Labelmaster 340 / 440 to add a digital printing unit, transforming it into a bespoke hybrid Gallus One, without the investment of an entirely new machine.

‘Even with its impressive technical capabilities, in a market characterized by rapid change, it’s the versatility of the press that is arguably its most impressive feature. At a time when the industry faces a multitude of challenges, we have no doubt that the Gallus One will continue to prove a critical and game-changing asset for label converters worldwide,’ concluded Urbinati.
