Ceramika Paradyż has been using Durst Gamma for decoration since 2007
By investing in the current Gamma XD series, Ceramika Paradyż now has 3 generations of ceramic printers working in production
Brixen, Italy - 10/10/2017 – Durst, leading manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technology, has installed the seventh ceramic printing in succession at Ceramika Paradyż. Already back in 2007, Ceramika Paradyż invested in a Durst Gamma 60 and was thus the first Polish tile manufacturer to add digital decoration to its product range. Introduced as a differentiation feature, digitization in fact turned into a growth motor for the Paradyż Group which today is one of the leading tile manufacturers in the Polish ceramic market. Over the last 10 years, the company has constantly expanded its production facilities, investing among others in the Gamma 75 KD generation, Pictocer and now also in the Gamma XD series. Today there are altogether 7 Durst ceramic printing systems working in the company's production facilities, with the first Gamma 60 still being used to decorate wall tiles.
"For more than ten years now we have been convinced by the Durst Gamma printing systems, which give us the necessary printing quality when used for tile decoration, as well as being sturdy and reliable for absolute economic efficiency", says Przemysław Kaczmarski. "The current investment in the Gamma XD series lets us expand our portfolio once again, using effect inks for a broader range of decorative designs as well as significantly improving the production process."
Ceramika Paradyż was particularly impressed by the outstanding printing quality of the Gamma XD series, which is necessary for making demanding ceramic products, including for example large-sized tiles or when printing images instead of the usual stone or wood effects. The printer's intuitive user interface makes it quick and easy for Ceramika Paradyż to convert graphic formats, thus considerably reducing the preparation periods for new projects. Furthermore, it is possible to simulate the printing quality of preceding models when developing new products so that the same design can be produced on different production lines.

Currently under industrial test with first installations in the second half of 2018, the Durst Digital Glaze Printing technology is the end result of over 6 years of research and development efforts aimed at creating a complete glazing line capable of integrating a fully digital process based on an open system. The solution incorporates latest-generation Durst glazing, printing and finishing technologies and can work with glazes that are very similar to conventional products. The resultant line will guarantee maximum versatility, flexibility and quality, as well as extremely competitive management costs, space rationalisation, optimisation of production and a high degree of management control through process automation.
Durst's new reactive ink system Alpha Ink R HD fulfills strict GOTS 5.0 guidelines for sustainable textile production
Brixen, Italy – September 8, 2017 – Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technology, has received the coveted GOTS certification in version 5.0 for its new reactive ink system Alpha Ink R HD. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the most exacting seal of approval for the entire textile production chain and is also acknowledged by consumers to be a reliable quality standard. Introduced in March 2017, version 5.0 of the standard must be implemented within twelve months by textile manufacturers in the areas of bio-production, textile processing and textile chemistry; it has further tightened the environment criteria right along the whole supply chain. The new guidelines refer to clothing and other textile products consisting of at least 70% certified organic fibers. All used chemicals including dyes and auxiliary substances must fulfill stipulated criteria in terms of environment and toxicology. Textiles produced according to the GOTS 5.0 guidelines give consumers the necessary transparency that these are sustainable products, which were also made under socially acceptable conditions. Durst is one of the first inkjet printing system manufacturers to offer a GOTS 5.0 certified reactive ink system for the digital production of home textiles, clothing, accessories and furniture upholstery. The newly formulated Alpha Ink R HD reduces ink consumption by approx. 30% compared to Durst's existing reactive ink system."Following the market success of our soft pigment ink system Alpha Ink P for sustainable, economic production based on universal applicability and a one-step process without pre- and post-treatment, we are now taking another step forward with GOTS 5.0 certification for the classic cotton production", says Martin Winkler, Segment Manager Durst Textile Printing. "Durst's Alpha Series and our excellent inks offer a perfect eco-system for digital textile production."
