Bressanone, Italie – 18 janvier 2019 – Durst, fabricant de technologies de production et d’impression numérique de pointe, vient de lancer la presse jet d’encre UV en un seul passage Tau 330 RSC E, qui offrira une production numérique abordable à un nombre croissant de fabricants d'étiquettes.
Spécialement destiné aux transformateurs de petite et moyenne taille du marché du milieu de gamme, ce nouveau modèle abordable – disponible à partir de 350 000 EUR – pourra faire l’objet d’une mise à niveau sur le terrain vers la presse Durst Tau RSC grande vitesse complète, avec ses huit couleurs et ses 78 mètres linéaires par minute.
Dans le droit fil du thème de Durst qui vous invite à « configurer votre avenir numérique », cette presse existe en deux largeurs d’impression (330 et 244 mm), proposant quatre couleurs ou la même version avec option blanche en plus en mode pleine vitesse. La Tau RSC E tire parti de la technologie RSC de pointe de Durst. Combinée à sa plus petite taille de goutte de 2 pl, sa résolution native de 1 200 x 1 200 ppp est le gage d’une qualité apparentée à celle de la photo.
Sa capacité de production de 1 020 m²/h est envisageable avec une vitesse d’impression de 52 m/min en couleur, blanc compris. Ses encres hautement pigmentées réduisent de jusqu’à 20 % leur consommation au mètre carré, minimisant les coûts de fonctionnement.
Toutes les options de la Tau 330 RSC peuvent être installées sur ce nouveau modèle, notamment le cylindre de refroidissement, l’impression de données variables ou les enrouleurs géants extérieurs. La nouvelle machine imprime 52 mètres linéaires par minute et peut disposer de jusqu’à huit canaux de couleurs (CMJN-B-OVV). Elle est également fournie avec le logiciel prépresse Durst Workflow Label, aussi rapide et efficace que performant et convivial.
Helmuth Munter, Segment Manager chez Durst Labels & Package Printing, commente ce lancement en ces termes : « Durant le développement de la presse Durst Tau 330 RSC E, nous avons porté une attention toute particulière à sa flexibilité et à ses possibilités de mise à niveau. Il s’agit là d’un ajout important à la famille Durst Tau RSC d’équipements variables, polyvalents, réglables et configurables. Nous mettons ainsi une impression numérique d’étiquettes abordable à la disposition d’un nombre croissant de fabricants d'étiquettes. Nous sommes incroyablement enthousiastes à l’idée des perspectives que leur offrira ce nouveau modèle économique. L’impression jet d’encre numérique UV d’étiquettes est indéniablement devenue réalité.»
Rochester, NY – 08/31/2018 - DuraMark Technologies near Indianapolis, IN is focused on durable labels. In fact, their logo itself is cleverly a warning label. When they had a chance to look at replacing a press at their new facility, they looked to Durst.
“We knew that UV technology was ideal for durable labels, and there were several key players in the market.” said Bill Bussick, President & CEO of DuraMark. “When we looked at replacing a press that had been discontinued, we knew we needed a reliable solution that met our customers demanding standards. Durst was our choice.”
Durst will be showcasing the latest developments in UV inkjet technology, web-to-print solutions and more at the upcoming Labelexpo 2018 show in Chicago, September 25-27th, Hall F, Booth # 5901. Moreover, OMET, will be showcasing an inline hybrid solution featuring the X6 technology, and powered by the Durst Tau 330 RSC. Additionally, our focus will be on the power & functionality of the Durst Workflow software, which helps simplify issues with customer files without having to go back to pre-press or Illustrator to make necessary changes.
DuraMark is using the Durst Workflow software to drive both of their Tau 330’s, and have capacity and redundancy to protect and increase their business. “Because we deliver ‘just in time,’ to customers who are using our decals in manufacturing lines, we need to make sure we can give them what they need, when they need it,” said Bob Keck, Vice President of Operations. “We’ve been delighted by working with Durst on this entire project.”
With its proprietary single pass UV inkjet technology, Durst provides the required flexibility to produce fast, efficient and with the highest print quality for the complete range of label & packaging applications. Small, medium, and now long runs are highly profitable with digital systems from Durst. The options are virtually unlimited and open up an enormous potential for new products and services in an ever-changing market.
With Durst continuous innovation of the Tau 330 UV portfolio, users can now rise above the rest and ‘Configure their Digital Future’ – available as stand-alone or an entirely automated production unit with integrated conventional & digital finishing lines, or even as a hybrid configuration with multiple flexo decks.
The real-time production possibilities state-of-the-art UV inkjet single pass printing technology delivers will be demonstrated by Durst’s new Tau 330 RSC, at Labelexpo Americas, Chicago, September 25 to 27, booth 5901.
Among the highlights of the system, that will engage visitors and present business winning opportunities, is its high printing resolution, unmatched printing speed and 8 color printing stations.
The Tau 330 RSC is a UV inkjet label and package printing press featuring 330 mm (13 in.) print width combined with leading edge print speed of up to 78 linear meters/min (245 ft./min) at a resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi. It runs at 1.485 m2 per hour, and thanks to its 8 color stations (CMYK+W+OVG) with new designed high pigmented inks, it delivers outstanding, flexo-like print quality with close to 95% Pantone color gamut coverage.
In line with Durst’s commitment to helping customers “Configure Your Digital Future”, the Tau 330 RSC is available as stand-alone version or can be configured as “digital – flexo hybrid press” with OMET’s Xflex series of conventional finishing options. The result is unlimited material flexibility for a vast range of applications.
Its configuration options include jumbo unwinder and material pre-treatment options like inline corona, web cleaner, priming as well as post press finishing options like varnishing, cold foil, lamination, die-cutting, slitting and rewinding.
Live demonstrations by the Tau 330 RSC will highlight the range of applications possible. Also on live demonstration will be the Durst powered OMET XJet. Both systems will be distributed by OMET US in North America.
Helmuth Munter, Global Segment Manager for Labels & Package Printing at Durst Group, said: “The Durst Tau 330 RSC has already achieved over 10 successful installations in Europe. Our customers have been very impressed by its print quality, production speed as well as its low variable and total cost of ownership. It is a game-changer and is challenging conventional print technologies that will allow it to become the mainstream technology of label printing in the near future.”
He added: “Small, medium, and now long runs are highly profitable with our digital systems. Thanks to a cost-effective total cost of ownership we provide, the options are virtually unlimited and open up an enormous potential for new products and services in an ever-changing market.”
Durst and OMET have formed a strategic partnership in North America that allows OMET exclusive access for sales of the Durst Tau product line, effective from August 1 with full implementation expected by Label Expo Americas 2018, where the new Tau 330 RSC will be showcased as a stand-alone label press system as well as in-line with the new OMET XJet digital-flexo hybrid press.
The new partnership will provide label printers extended engineering capabilities, added services, and combined digital and flexo printing expertise from a single source. Furthermore the combined efforts are a natural fit of two premier brands, extends the reach of both companies in North America, and by utilizing OMET’s Chicago, IL office provides a central convenient location for customer demonstrations and faster sample turnaround time. Durst has appointed Richard Thomas, formerly Business Development Manager for North American Label Segment, as the newly titled Director of North American Digital Business Initiative for Labels and Package Printing.
”We are delighted to expand our collaboration with OMET,” said Helmuth Munter, Global Segment Manager for Labels & Package Printing at Durst Group. “Bringing together our know-how and market expertise provides increased value for our customers and accelerates the digitization of the label & packaging market.”
Claudio Semenza, OMET Americas Sales Director, said: “OMET is excited about the collaboration with Durst. “This partnership allows us to offer a complete system of printing solutions to our customers in North America. The interest in digital printing is growing quickly and OMET Americas now has the right answers for the market.”
Marco Calcagni, OMET Sales & Marketing Director, added: “This is a complete Made-in-Italy printing solution that meets the market trends of personalization, just-in-time deliveries, and final product variation, while also maintaining the capabilities of a conventional press. Durst is the right partner for us because they have deep knowledge and the best digital inkjet technology in the international market.”
Brixen, Italy – 15/03/2018 Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital production technologies, has confirmed that Italgrafica Sistemi, of Italy, will be the world's customer for the new OMET XJet. Powered by Durst, the integrated hybrid solution for a wide range of high-performance labels and packaging printing will be installed at its headquarters in Castelgomberto, in the province of Vicenza, in the early summer.
Together with OMET, manufacturer of printing and converting machines, the two companies are providing a complete hybrid print and finishing line to Italgrafica Sistemi that will offer an unlimited flexibility and a wide range of final applications with a consistent cost reduction. It chose the OMET XJet because of the ability for in-line multi-process configurations that finalizes products in a single pass.
Italgrafica Sistemi is an €11m-turnover company with 50 employees who work two shifts. With 18 printing lines already running at Italgrafica Sistemi, the new OMET XJet is expected to replace two of the flexo lines as demands continue to increase for short-run, personalised technology in a single pass. It will open up new opportunities for cold foiling, printing on reverse and adhesives, as well as varnish and diecutting.
Francesco Niorettini, General Manager of converter Italgrafica Sistemi, said the total cost of ownership and benefits to his customers were crucial in the decision-making. "This investment opens up a new world of opportunity," he said. "It allows us to give far more choice to the market and produce so many more different types of labels for any kind of job. By including the Durst Tau, we will be able to broaden our portfolio by combining all the technologies together.
"What is also really important is to ensure that we retain the same high level and definitions produced with flexo and offset - and the Durst / OMET hybrid will enable this. Other factors in our investment decision included the 50 percent increase in speed, the low service and consumable costs, as well as the fact that both Durst and OMET have good reputations in the marketplace."
Mr Niorettini added: "We'll be saving huge amounts of money and time. We expect a 20% saving in overall production costs and will benefit from faster start-up times, which will enable us to offer a wider product range. As one example for, say, a four-colour job we expect to increase the productivity of the machine by 40 percent with faster set-ups. In addition, we will be saving around 70 percent in material waste by using digital."
Helmuth Munter, Segment Manager Labels & Package Printing at Durst, said: "Italgrafica Sistemi is one of the increasing numbers of forward-thinking companies that are seeing the huge benefits of using the best technologies in a complete 'all-in-one' printing process. This ability to combine digital inkjet printing with conventional pre- and post press printing and finishing world, offers our future customers a highly cost effective solution.
"In addition, the feedback we received from our recent Durst Digital Days has also convinced us of how customers perceive future market opportunities to increasingly involve UV inkjet digital in flexible configurations or as a complementary technology. It's the future."
The jewel in the crown of the Durst and OMET partnership, the new OMET XJet, is the new hybrid printing platform integrating Durst's Tau RSC 330 digital inkjet system with OMET X6 flexo stations and converting units. Durst inkjet technology together with OMET X6's finishing and converting units assure reliability and excellent results at every run, with the advantage of obtaining the final product in one single passage.
The OMET XJet hybrid broadens the opportunities for label printers thanks to its flexible configuration. Italgrafica Sistemi's configuration provided through distribution partner LIRMAprint will feature an unwinder, two flexo units, the Tau 330 RCS, another two flexo units, a diecutting mono twin system, and a rewinder. The Vision automatic registration system is also included and the system has an option to print on adhesive, laminate and other applications to create coupons and special labels, including peel-back versions. It can be seen as three presses in one or used as a hybrid solution, flexo stand-alone or digital stand-alone according to the length of the run or the level of personalization required.

Brixen, Italy – July 2017 – Durst, the manufacturer of advanced digital production technologies, has secured its first sale of a Durst Tau 330 in Ukraine. EKKO, one of Ukraine’s biggest label-making companies, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2017, describes itself as the “oldest company” in the independent Ukraine. From five people at the start, more than 80 staff are now employed at EKKO that turns over €2million annually. The Tau 330 platform at EKKO features a 330 mm (13 in.) print width, 5 colours (CMYKW) and offers printing speeds of up to 48 linear meters/min (169 ft./min) with up to 1260 dpi print resolutions. The press features leading edge production capacity and print quality.
“Digital printing is a good investment and can complement and help flexo and screen business grow,” says Volodymyr Drabyk, General Director of EKKO, the specialist producer of self-adhesive labels in reels. “Our digital business at the moment is around 5% of the total, and with this investment in the Durst Tau 330 it will be around 20-30% of our work in five years. However, it is difficult to predict accurately because of the political and economic uncertainties.”
“What is sure is that we have already helped our customers grow together with Durst. As an example, a new producer of stewed vegetables and fruit products in Ukraine with a wide product range was not ready to invest in flexo plates which are necessary for flexo printing, and couldn’t guarantee big volumes at the beginning as they didn’t know whether it would be successful. So they started the process digitally on the Durst, entered the marked and start to grow and widen their product range with private labels without big investments, which usually are a big problem for a new producer. The Durst allows us to launch potential big products at low cost and no risk.”
Crucial to EKKO’s decision to invest in the system was the extremely competitive total cost of ownership. “Prices in Ukraine are dramatically different to anywhere else in Europe – at least 10% cheaper, usually much much more,” said Mr Drabyk. “So pricing was an extremely important consideration. The other impressive characteristics are the quality and speed of printing, as well as equipment maintenance and after-sales service.
“I have spent many years researching the market, including spells overseas in the United States of America, and I visited several customers and also other manufacturers of digital equipment before choosing Durst. We have never looked back – it has been a fantastic investment and it is definitely helping to build our business.
“Durst and its agents LFP Industrial Solutions provide first-class consultation, service and specialist knowledge. It is a mutually beneficial business partnership.”
Helmuth Munter, Segment Manager Labels and Packaging Printing for Durst, said: “EKKO has seen unprecedented growth opportunities since investing in UV inkjet digital technology. This speaks volumes, as does the fact that its customers are making specific requests for their work to be done on our systems. We’re proud to be supporting with help from LFP from Poland as they grow their business using our world-class technology.”
EKKO Tau 330
Nearly two decades of development and a clear vision of how to run a professional business have made DPC (Digital Printing Centar LTD., Belgrade, Serbia) a market leader in wide format digital print. Economic indicators for the last period place DPC at the first place on the list not only in Serbia, but also the whole Adria-Balkan region (Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina). These results are even more impressive when we know that this economic result has been achieved by constant investments in modern manufacturing facilities and most advanced technologies and business solutions for industrial wide format digital printing.After complete relocation of production three industrial Durst printers have been installed within a short period of time. Those are UV inkjet printers Durst UV Rho 312R (web-feed) and two Durst UV P10 200 hybrid printers (flatbed & roll-to-roll) installed by a regional representative, Grafik.net (Grafik.net Ltd., Zagreb, Croatia).This kind of investment into Durst equipment has not gone unnoticed because we are talking about a technological leader whose printers are unrivalled in the segment of wide format digital printing. While talking to the owner of DPC, Mr Slobodan Boban Petrović, we managed to get more information on reasons for such an investment, what his view of this line of work and market was and what kind of attitude and energy were necessary in order to achieve a top business result.
Digital Printing Centar (DPC)was established in the year 2000. From the very beginning we have strived to become the regional centre for digital printing. In order to achieve that, we needed a completely fresh approach to business from the one which was current on the market at that time. We have set a new standard regarding customer service and created a print service which genuinely offers a complete service and solutions for all our clients’ needs according to the principle “from wish to realization”. Hard work, commitment, great effort and a lot of invested energy have resulted in change in the way our clients think and view print services market.Years which followed were the years of intense travelling, visiting different fairs and participating in numerous meetings in search of knowledge and innovation; and the result was investment in the right space and equipment. We continue to develop our company with good, positive and creative values which are built on relationships with our clients and suppliers. We invest in employee education and by continuous introduction of new technologies and products we help to shape the market and grow with it.Today we are ahead of the market. We want to be, and we are, one step ahead with technologies, knowledge and effort we invest into every job no matter how big or small it is. All of this has led us from the process of printing to a complete digitalisation of finishing process of the final product, forming new production processes, acquiring the motor fleet, application team, logistics etc. Slogans which have followed us throughout the years explain in just a few words what our relationship to work, challenges and market is.“Hen’s teeth.” – “Get real - demand the impossible.”* – “imPRESS!“ - “One step ahead.”Source: www.dpc.rs
At the moment we have around 120 employees among all the departments. This number includes sales, logistics, print and finishing. Digital print is print on-demand and you often have to be a magical worker. Because of that, we have to be flexible when it comes to the number of employees and when necessary we hire additional work force.Most business results are achieved on the local Serbian market. Future plans include introduction into the foreign markets, but it is too early to specify the details.
Two years ago we invested in the first Durst P10-200 flatbed system. Because of the quality of print we were able to satisfy all the bidding needs and contract a larger volume of prints for clients such as Frikom on a regional level. Considering the volume of print it was logical to acquire another machine so we could facilitate the work, have the possibility to do smaller circulations while one machine was working and secure a back-up. Second machine enabled us to accept more work with the possibility to print larger volumes.Durst Rho 312R web-feed printer was installed at the beginning of the year, and the period of commissioning the machine was short – there was almost no adjustment period. In less than three months we made more than 30 000 square meters, which is 50% more than we had expected. When it comes to press speed, the time which was necessary for printing is half as long, for some jobs even three times less than the initial length. This increase in capacity has enabled us to do a very intensive election campaign in Serbia, which had, in less than three weeks, two complete changes of visual. We did this demanding job without problems and within the deadline thanks to Durst machine and we justified our slogan: “Get real - demand the impossible.”*We had planned to invest in Durst machines earlier but because of the complete relocation of production facilities and high investments that was not possible. With support of our suppliers we managed to get a favourable loan and achieve this technological advancement. Manufacturing time was shortened and the market instantly acknowledged that there was a centre which replied to all inquiries regarding the deadlines. The result is such that by increase in volume we instantly received more work. When taking an order from an agency the answer to every question regarding inquiries and deadlines was: “Yes, we can!“DPC focuses on a complete service and fulfilment within the shortest time possible with the top quality which resulted in not having competition on regional market of wide format printing. In order to achieve that, you also need press equipment without competition such as Durst.
We cooperated with more distributers in the past, but none of them had the advantage and the vision of long-term cooperation which would correspond to our wishes for setting high-standards in all business segments. When Grafik.net company appeared we gained a relevant regional partner, a serious company which can give us support in areas they are specialized in. At the same time Durst made a huge technological breakthrough with its revolutionary machine P10, and later 312R. We were ready to go to a new level and things just came together. For the last three years we have been exploring new possibilities with Grafik.net and we are getting information regarding the market, which are extremely important. Thanks to their representative, Mr Dean Tolp, the whole segment of our business connected to Durst is completely covered. We have excellent technical support which gives the whole story a winning combination.DPC was established primarily on our willingness to thrive and invest in knowledge.
