2 Gallus ECS 340 goes to Super Labels, Mumbai and one EM 280 to Raj Press, Bengaluru : Gallus sells three presses to Indian players at Labelexpo Europe

As other Labelexpo’s, this time too Gallus cracked the deal for not one but three of its presses with the Indian customers at the show floor. While two Gallus ECS 340 presses have been sold to Super Labels from Mumbai, one EM 280 has been finalized for Raj Press in Bengaluru.

According to Samir Patkar, managing director, Gallus India, “Though there were lesser customers from India, Gallus have had a successful show. The reason due to fewer footfalls from the country could be attributed to devaluation of the currency, but nonetheless, this gave us a chance to focus on customers who visited us. Meanwhile, in the next couple of weeks this October, an eight colour EM 280 will be landing at Best Labels in Chennai.”

Best Labels in Chennai is these days all set to become a one stop shop by adding on value for their customers as earlier the printer had a letter press machines and recently it added an eight colour EM 280 that is a paradigm shift as it adds flexo to their bandwagon.

This year, Gallus India has sold nine presses since January 2013 and the company is looking at a total of 10 to 11 presses by the end of December 2013. However, a success story is big when there are repeated installations and Super Labels is one such loyal Gallus customer. The company already has four Gallus EM 280 installed in-house and has now placed two more orders, albeit this time for the technological marvel ECS 340 that will keep them ahead in terms of technology. 

The Gallus ECS 340 is an extremely cost-efficient, high-quality commodity label production press.  Exceptionally quiet and stable with minimal waste and setup times, the Gallus ECS 340 heralds a new era of extremely cost-efficient commodity label manufacture. It is proof that less can indeed be more. When developing this press, we focussed on the essential features, honing the configuration to maximise print quality while minimising costs. The machine’s extremely short web path of just 1.1 m between printing units cuts waste significantly. Thanks to its granite core, the press has a particularly long service life and is quieter than any other machine in this class. What’s more, the self-explanatory operation of the Gallus ECS 340 with touchscreen technology delivers even quicker results.
