Sheet Labels Inc. Purchases Durst Tau RSC E
With its recent expansion into Texas, Sheet Labels Inc. made a commitment to its customers and started its new chapter with the purchase of a Durst Tau RSC E. As one of the first assets purchased for this new location, the Durst Tau RSC E sets the trajectory for Sheet Labels Inc’s future.
Headquartered out of Queensbury, New York, Sheet Labels Inc. is a full-service label and packaging converter that specializes in helping companies develop their image, communicate their value, and grow their brand through superior print and packaging products. To continue to meet these needs, Alan Etheridge, senior VP of Sheet Labels Inc., spent a significant amount of time researching the most advantageous technology for their new facility, stating “I needed quality, flexibility, and speed, but most importantly, I needed a UV inkjet asset, and a support structure for that technology, that I could rely on in order to continue to deliver superior service to our new and existing clients.” Durst exceeded in every category.
The Durst Tau RSC E provides maximum print speeds of 170 ft/min (upgradeable to 262 ft/min), 1200 dpi native resolution, and is available with up to eight color options plus highly opaque white. All Durst printers are equipped with Durst's award-winning Workflow and Analytics software and comes with 24/7 service and support. “The 1200x1200 was an important factor in my decision, as it gave me equitable quality and flexibility between the inkjet and electrophotography assets. The speed of the Durst was also a definite advantage, and ease of operator use/training,” said Etheridge.
Steve Lynn, director of Labels and Packaging – Sales, said of the relationship, “Our Team at Durst understands the pressures that converters face daily, which is why we develop innovative products, comprehensive support practices, and business operations to deliver productive and complete solutions to the market. The Tau RSC line is incredibly versatile and a perfect fit for what Sheet Labels Inc is envisioning for its future. We look forward to their continued success and our growing partnership.”
“The time from press delivery to fully functional was the shortest of any digital asset I have purchased in my 26-year career in this industry. The installation, technical support, and service team from Durst have exceeded our expectations,” reflected Etheridge on his experience. As for the future, he commented, “We are so impressed by the asset, and its capabilities, that we structured our initial purchase to give us options on several additional units over the next five years. As we increase our company footprint, the Durst will be our UV inkjet press of choice and one of the foundational assets in current and future locations.”
