Gallus is now offering a new five-colour version of its digital hybrid flexo press, the Gallus Labelfire E 340. The five-colour offering will have the same reliability and 1200 x 1200 dpi image quality as the eight-colour, without orange, violet, and green inks.

Launched in 2016, the Labelfire 340 is an eight-colour digital production system, co-developed with Heidelberg, and features 1200 dpi inkjet heads from Fujifilm.

Those customers who purchase the five-colour Labelfire will have the ability to upgrade to eight colours and add further embellishing options including screen, cold foil and additional flexo as the need arises or their business grows.

‘We have many customers who want to get into digital hybrid printing, but do not need the complete high-end, fully featured configuration that an eight-colour Labelfire provides,’ explained Michael Ring, head of digital solutions at Gallus. ‘This new five-colour version allows them to get started in the digital arena but still provides the flexibility for expansion in the future while protecting their initial investment.’
