Gallas Label & Decal Adds SensoTec Auto Registration

CHICAGO, IL | Gallas Label & Decal recently installed SensoTec auto registration technology on its eight-color, all-UV Gallus EM280 combination press. The result is perfect registration, reduced set-up time, and up to 50% reduction in material waste, the company reports.

“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. It also reduces waste during set-up and during the run making it extremely eco-friendly as well. This efficient process reportedly makes SensoTec auto registration one of the most powerful lean manufacturing tools in the printing industry.

“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, VP. “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.”
