Durst Launches New Press, Software, and Inks at Labelexpo
Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, announced major expansions with its leading-edge RSC platform of UV inkjet label presses. New dedicated label workflow and prepress software together with an advanced modular Tau RSCi UV inkjet digital label press and low-migration inks were shown for the first time on its stand at Labelexpo 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.
Under an official slogan of “We Keep You Printing,” Durst has announced a raft of groundbreaking innovations and world firsts as it continues to accelerate its presence in digital label inkjet printing, an industry it first established a presence only a decade ago.
Dedicated workflow software for Web2Production and Durst’s own prepress software “Workflow Label” offered by Durst Professional Services to customize MIS integration software packages were showcased. New features of the Durst Workflow Label combined with the adapted Durst Smart Shop and integration packages help to fulfill Industry 4.0 standards and drive forward the expanded Tau RSC portfolio.
The new Tau RSCi, which was on show together with current Tau 330 RSC and RSC-E presses has print widths of 330, 420 or 508mm (13, 16.5 or 20 in.) and a higher printing speed of up to 100 linear m/min. New features for the RSC portfolio include a high opacity White Print Mode for an increased screen-like opacity and a High Speed White mode that allows high speed printing at 80 lin. m/min of all colors, including white. Another spotlight at Labelexpo was a new low-migration UV ink developed for the RSC platform, which is compliant with EUPIA and Swiss Ordinance regulations for food and pharmaceutical packaging.
Visitors to the Durst stand were able to take a close look at the software and printing technology and how it is used by customers who benefit from an automated production unit. The offering is completed by consulting, training and integration provided through Durst Professional Services.
Helmuth Munter, Durst’s Segment Manager, Labels and Package Printing, said: “Labelexpo marks 10 years of Durst in the label industry with a raft of new innovations: first with 7 colors, first with chill roller, first with low-migration ink and first with an inert curing system. Introduced two years ago, the Tau 330 RSC and Tau 330 RSC E set a new benchmark in label printing and we now have more than 50 installations around the world. We are confident that our updated Tau RSC platform will once again set the base for the future of industrial digital inkjet printing in the label industry.”
