Gallarus are actively monitoring COVID-19 updates and adhering to government guidelines. We are committed to providing continuity of service to our clients throughout this pandemic.
Digital Printing Overview
In digital printing, ink is transferred directly onto the surface. Rather than relying on legacy offset and flexo print, Gallarus partner with Domino Printing Sciences, to deliver drop on demand digital print technology. There is no development or change time allowing operators to make changes to batches on the fly, altering production schedules seamlessly. As experts, we are fully equipped to build to customer user requirement specifications with our configurable off the shelf solutions combining productivity with 600dpi print quality.
As manufacturers prepare their lines for serialisation, we know that much of their existing technology will need to be upgraded. With a range of flexible printer types available, we can save on costs by integrating our high-performance technology into an existing production line, or work with you to create a solution at the design stage.
All Gallarus technology comes with validation documentation. As part of our design practice we adhere to ISPE’s GAMP-5 guidelines and FDA protocols including 21 CFR Part 11 control – making compliance simple.
Key benefits of digital printing vs offset printing:
Optimised for short runs
Diversity of ink options
Single unit customisation
See what our experts say about digital printing technology
The new K600G includes a range of solutions that have been developed for different installation types, including off-line, near-line, top-of-line, sealed-blister-coding for printing directly on formed blister packs, and an integrated-line version developed to meet the needs of OEMs. Using digital printing technology to customise product packaging within manufacturing chains adds a degree of agility that allows pharmaceutical manufacturers to react more easily to legislative changes, variations in product labelling requirements reducing reliance on external packaging providers.
K600G printing performance achieves high-quality, reliable printing across a range of substrates – the printing module has a native resolution of 600dpi and excellent greyscale capability.
Based on Domino’s market-leading piezo drop-on-demand inkjet technology, the printer is also capable of building up imagery using multiple different drop sizes – this improves image quality and gives manufacturers more control over their ink consumption.
Industry trends show serialisation at pack level as a global requirement in the pharmaceutical industry. The serialisation of individual pockets of a blister pack will become the new standard to further enhance patient safety and reduce medical error. The K600G has been developed to provide manufacturers with an on-site solution for variable data printing, which includes coding at the item level, to meet these future requirements.
To achieve the highest levels of efficiency, the system can be supplied with the Gallarus unique offering of Nucleus 4.0, that collects, analyses, and learns from factory data to provide intelligent manufacturing solutions.

Physical Machine Systems
K600G integrates easily onto existing or new packaging lines in the form of near-line, roll-to-roll and top-of-line end user solutions. Additionally, OEMs can leverage our integrated-line and late stage customised line solutions.
The K600G-NL solution prints to blank & pre-printed foil on demand. Nearline allows for interconnection with customer blister lines and other production lines. It is easier to maintain and can become with roll to roll capability for pre-printed foil.
The K600G-TOL solution prints to pre-printed foil, sits on top of the blister line and prints on demand.
The K600G-OL is the preferred solution to produce preprinted foil for several partner machines.
The K600G Integrated solution prints on sealed blister material and die cut blisters (Sealed Blister Coding), on demand. This solution is customisable to fit to a variety of OEM environments and blister manufacturer offerings, with its light weight, compact integrated capability.
