Gallus' flagship digital label printing press, Labelfire 340 has introduced extensions – an Upstream screen printing unit before the digital head and a digital embellishment unit (DEU) downstream.

Gallus demonstrated these additional inline finishing functions for the industrial digital label production on the Labelfire in the Print Media Centre during the Gallus Innovation Days held from 26-28 June 2018. 

According to Christof Naier, CEO at Gallus, the Upstream is a fully integrated screen printing unit, which enables high opacity printing of opaque white on transparent substrates that can be digitally printed over. "It will help bring the cost of labels down."

Naier added, at the other end the DEU can carry out inline coating digitally and apply matte, gloss and tactile spot coating effects to the substrate web in various thicknesses as haptic relief effects. "What is new is that by using metallic foils, this relief effect can be executed in metallic looks, which was previously not possible on any digital printing machine."

Gallus claimed that the Labelfire is the only digital printing press in the world where almost all inline finishing processes are possible. "From the file to the finished label in one pass," said Naier.
