Gallus ECS C

Solid base: A digital converting solution has been created based on the revolutionary Gallus ECS 340, with the innovative, format-free die cutter at its heart. Minimal changeover times and virtually waste-free job changes are made possible by front loading, a sleeve system, chambered doctor blade, presetting and an extremely short web path. The robust design based on technical granite in conjunction with Gallus register control ensures exceptionally smooth operation and high processing quality even at very high speeds.

High productivity: Developed to handle the output of up to two highly productive digital presses, the Gallus ECS C Digital Converting System can be used whenever there is a need for uncompromising productivity at minimal cost per label.

Modular solution: The modular structure also opens up an unexpectedly wide range of applications. Almost any configuration is possible, from the compact version consisting of a die cutter and flexographic printing unit to a multicolour configuration with surface finishing processes.
