Durst digital printing

Letchworth, Hertfordshire, UK – 15.05.24 – UK web-to-print specialist Printed Easy’s investment in Tau RSC E LED inkjet technology from Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, will increase production capacity for labels and stickers by 300%.

The Letchworth, Hertfordshire, company’s newest press runs at 52m/min and is configured with CMYK plus white high performance Tau RSC UV LED ink that has great resistance and durability.

The Durst Tau RSC E LED has already begun production and Managing Director Jon Lancaster said: “The Durst is faster than the machine it replaces and has some clear advantages. It works well on PP substrates with no primer and has a wider colour gamut. We’ve also got the new LED drying on it. Instead of a regular lamp that’s on all the time, it switches on whenever there is pigment present.”

Simon Cosh, Labels Business Development Manager of Durst UK & Ireland, said: “It is fantastic that Printed Easy has chosen Durst technology for its first investment in inkjet. Jon and his team are always investigating the latest, most innovative, effective and efficient systems to meet the business’s needs and we look forward to seeing the Durst Tau RSC E LED positively impact production. Our market-leading Tau technology with its unique capability of printing up to 1200 x 1200 dpi is proving to be a real vote-winner for an increasing number of customers who see LED digital inkjet the future for their business.”

Printed Easy has 57 employees and is expected to achieve a turnover of £15.7m this year.
