Gallus will be showing its new Labelmaster Advanced, an extension of its flagship Labelmaster press, at Labelexpo Europe next month.

The Labelmaster and Labelmaster Advanced will be on show at Labelexpo

The final development phase of the Labelmaster Advanced ended at the Gallus production site in St Gallen, Switzerland in spring and it will be given its first official showing at the expo taking place from 25 to 28 September, almost a year after it unveiled the Labelmaster at an event in Switzerland

The machine will be made commercially available in the UK in the autumn, with Gallus saying price is dependent on configuration. Gallus said that the press offers label printers “an unrivalled variety of processes, as the various finishing and printing units can be changed quickly and easily at any machine position”. 

The Labelmaster Plus line, which can be equipped with features such as cross register control and alternative UV curing, will also become available in the autumn. 

Gallus senior product manager Martin Kast listed a number of improvements of the Advanced model over the original Labelmaster, including higher degrees of automation, motorised cross adjustment, automatic register control, faster ink drying and an optional LED power supply.  

It also has a number of optional finishing configurations not found on the original Labelmaster: a hot-foil embossing unit, rotary embossing unit and insetting.

Kast said: “The Advanced model boasts maximum flexibility and a high level of automation. In this premium version, the length and cross register controls integrated as standard can be combined with all features in unlimited ways.

“The Advanced Line offers the ultimate in process flexibility, which means the various finishing and printing units can be changed quickly and easily at any machine position; the ultimate in flexibility.” 

The machine prints at a maximum speed of 200m/min, equipped with web width configurations ranging from 220mm to 445mm. The multiweb modular Advanced model takes a variety of substrates, including self-adhesive materials, paper, cardboard, monofoil label materials and tube laminates.

Gallus, which became wholly owned by Heidelberg in 2014, will also show the original Labelmaster at Labelexpo, along with added inline finishing processes and a Labelfire 340 platform.
