Gallas Label & Decal has installed SensoTec automatic registration technology on its eight-color, all UV Gallus EM280 combination press. By using SensoTec, Gallas intends to achieve reduced setup times and waste reductions.
“Clients who come to us with high-end projects will be delighted with the results. The SensoTec system raises the bar for speed and accuracy,” says Gary Gallas, president. “Watching the process is remarkable. The system also works in harmony with label enhancements, such as rotary screen printing and foiling, which is critical to our wine, spirits and cosmetic label clients. It also increases our productivity, which means faster turnaround times.”
The SensoTec system uses fiber optic microelectronic sensors that scan at each revolution and adjust registration simultaneously throughout the print run.
“During the past few years, Gallas committed to lean initiatives to hold down costs for our clients and achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification,” says Mark Gallas, vice president. “Acquiring this technology is another example of how our Lean Manufacturing process drives continuous improvement. It’s now a benchmark of our quality standards and we look forward to adding this system to all our future flexographic press acquisitions.”
