The samples were produced on a Gallus ICS 670 in Weiden.
The modular machine used for this purpose was equipped with 5 flexo modules, a cold-foil module and a hot-foil stamping module, inline cutter, inline die-cutting and embossing station, inline waste stripping station, and delivery unit.
Two different designs for food-safe packagings for chocolate with a high degree of finishing were each produced in two different finishing versions, as mixed forms on two different substrates.
In each case, a holographic cold-foil, two different hot-foils, two pigment coatings, UV gloss and haptic soft dispersion coatings were applied in a single pass, with various blind embossing, die-cutting and creasing steps also being performed at the same time.
"Inline production gives you incredible dependability when it comes to technical realisation: the finished blank is ready after die-cutting and can be tested in accordance with the requirements – by the tape test, for example," says Dieter Widmann, Production Manager at Gallus. "In addition to which, the modular structure of the Gallus ICS 670 makes for a very safe investment, because the machine configuration can be adapted to suit the needs of the market and the user."
Added Value” through Real Life approach
From the very beginning, the entire development process was characterised by close coordination with everyone involved in the value chain: designers, printers and folding-carton manufacturers, and suppliers. Only if these different skills work together effectively can such good results be obtained."
