Guysal, specialist self adhesive label division of Cork, Ireland, based Guy & Co, has installed a Gallus R200 – the company’s fourth Gallus rotary letterpress machine. It will cater for the high volume of short run specialist pharmaceutical products that are distributed worldwide.
The Gallus machines at Guysal are six colour with rotary screen, hot foil, and full UV curing, the latest being capable of multi-web operation. Says general manager Séan Nolan: “In addition to offering a high degree of interchangeability and flexibility with our existing machines, we find the rotary letterpress technique best suited to our clients and their markets, where legibility of fine point type is essential.
“We have been looking closely at combination machines to service our niche markets, but see no current reason to go down the UV flexo route. Our customers’ order pattern is more focused on greater frequency with reduced quantities. Rotary letterpress remains the technology best suited to our requirements and highly qualified workforce.”
