St. Gallen, March 2021 – The number of participants and the positive feedback speak for the new event format. With more than 1500 registrations the Gallus High Performance Day 2021 on the 3rd and 4th of March 2021 was a huge success. Using this new digital event format, Gallus demonstrated the highlights of digital and conventional label printing systems. In addition, expert talks informed about different topics like digital label printing with low migration inks.
Regarding digital printing the advantages of the Gallus Labelfire including the most relevant technical features were shown in detail. The print result was a digitally printed, highly embellished label with metallic effect, also applied digitally due to the Digital Embellishment Unit (DEU).
Regarding conventional narrow web printing the Gallus Labelmaster was demonstrated as well as the Gallus RCS 430. Participants of the virtual event could follow the production of a shampoo label on clear PP material on the Gallus Labelmaster with integrated Digital Printbar “White Edition”. With this digital module it is possible to digitally print an opaque white or to integrate language changes on different spots of a label. After this demo the “Game-Changer”-label proved that the Gallus RCS 430 – in this case with integrated hot foil embossing unit Pantec Rhino – is able to convince with a variety of processes and various applications. The Gallus RCS further offers a fast and easy set up process.
In the so-called Breakout Sessions label experts talked in detail about three different topics. Martin Leonhard explained what to consider if printing labels digitally with low migration inks, Oliver Vetter talked about the advantages of rotative screen printing as well as the easy and fast set prepress process and Vladimir Tyulpin from Avery Dennison gave insights about the substrate selection for hybrid UV inkjet and flexography.
For registered participants the videos are still available on the event platform.
