Heidelberg unveils the Gallus DCS 340
Heidelberg has unveiled its new Gallus DCS 340 digital label printing press. It’s based on inkjet technology from Fujifilm and was developed jointly between Heidelberg and the Gallus Group—which was taken over by Heidelberg in the summer—for the self-adhesive labels market.
The press is expected to enter series production in the coming year hoping to meet the growing demand for the cost effective production of short, medium, and versioned runs in label printing. According to the company the global print volume for these labels are growing by around four percent a year—five percent of the volume is being printed digitally.
