Insights on the Roadmap and Developments
Direct-to-Textile and Transfer Paper Printing
Kick-off in Lana/South Tyrol
Hamburg, Germany – 22 May, 2017 – Durst, manufacturer of digital production technologies, has formed a partnership with Ultima Displays, which is creating Centres of Excellences across Europe.
Ultima Displays is a one-stop solutions and hardware provider serving more than 6,000 dealers across 28 countries in Europe. It employs 285 people across the continent and has a £37 million (€44 million) turnover.
The first agreement in the partnership – announced during FESPA where both companies were exhibiting –involved a Durst Rhotex 325 system being installed at Nantes, France, in the week prior to the show. A roll-out involving at least three other systems will follow at sites in Corby, Northamptonshire, and in Gdansk, Poland, and Padova, Italy, from next year. The Durst Rhotex 325 scheduled for the UK headquarters will be a focal point for the Centres of Excellences being created.
France-based Philippe Bouffant, Chief Executive Officer of Ultima Displays, said: “We’ve discussed opportunities with other players in the market, but nobody can match Durst for quality, service and its partnership approach. It’s a company that’s not just about trying to fit technology to production requirements, it’s about fully understanding our business and requirements and demonstrating how they can help.
“Durst’s approach has been not just about the technology, but they have really taken the time to understand our people and the service we want. There is a level of trust that’s higher than we have ever had before – and it’s reciprocal both ways.
“The investment in these systems will help our 6,000 dealers across Europe get a competitive edge and improve profits. One of the key benefits is that they will be able to offer fantastic quality with industrial, low-cost production with super-fast turnaround times, with some jobs now being able to be printed and dispatched on the same day for next-day delivery. Gone are the days when dealers may have had to wait more than a week for a job to be done.”
He added: “We’ll be able to provide a level of consistency and output that will be unmatched across the industry and the clients’ online business will grow rapidly.”
Christoph Gamper, Durst Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our philosophy is not just about providing a solution. It’s very much about developing a relationship in a partnership approach and working with our customers such as Ultima Displays to help grow their business. We always provide a thorough evaluation of requirements, trials, visits to customer asite and then ensure that the trials are replicated in real-live situations. Nothing is left to chance. Our reputation means everything.”
Founded in 1970, Ultima Displays provides all kinds of other products and services including roller and tension banners, POS signage, backwalls, modular solutions, cases, lighting and counters. Its printing capabilities covers all kind of die-sublimation and UV work for dealers. It is part of the P3 Group, which has a $130million turnover for its global one-stop-shop operations.

Brixen, Italy – 05/04/2017 – Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital production technologies, will be presenting various aspects of the subject of investment security and reliability at FESPA 2017. In the recent customer survey, “Perspective 2020”, Durst’s customers indicated that, in addition to technological innovation, customer integration has a particular relevance in working together to achieve commercial success. One example of what this type of commercial success can look like is illustrated by the development of roll-to-roll double-sided printing, which is available as a new option for the Rho flatbed printing systems. The starting point for the new feature was the company Eskils. The Swedish full-service printing provider began with large-format digital printing 10 years ago with two Rho 350 followed by two Rho 500, and invested in a Rho 1312 flatbed printing system with roll-printing option in 2015 in order to increase its productivity and expand its portfolio. Eskils’ core business is advertising media for the retail sector, where demand for products with double-sided printing has increased over time. Eskils’ technical director, Lars-Inge Brännmar, therefore faced the challenge of how to produce them 100% justified. As an initial solution, he developed marker points, but the constant manual working steps affected productivity. He imposed his requirement on Durst, and following a joint field test, the system for double-sided printing using sensors was developed into a viable product. The system is now available to all Rho users as an upgrade for the Rho 1312 as well as for the Rho P10 Series.
Durst Rho P10 250
“Over the years, we have really come to value the reliability of Durst systems and were certain that, when we invested in the Rho 1312, we would have security of investment beyond the normal level thanks to Durst’s continuous development activities,” says Christian Nilsson, CEO of Eskils. “Of course, other companies are now also benefiting from our initiative, but we benefit from others, too. For example, in the area of soft signage, we can learn from the experience of existing Durst Rhotex customers, allowing us to analyze and implement textile applications with a greater focus in our market.”

Avec la nouvelle Rhotex 325, Durst élargit sa gamme de produits à succès aux imprimantes Soft Signage et textiles hautes performances.
La gamme comprend désormais les systèmes d'impression directe et par transfert thermique pour tous les besoins du marché. L'impression sur papier à sublimation et le processus de transfert ultérieur en utilisant une calandre ou l'impression directe sur tissu ne nécessitent plus d'avoir des connaissances approfondies sur les méthodes de traitement des textiles et les processus post-traitement ou d'importants investissements financiers pour pouvoir commencer immédiatement la production de textiles.
Toutes les imprimantes Rhotex utilisent des encres à dispersion thermique 100 % conformes à la norme OEKO-TEX pour des produits inodores, 100% exempts de COV, pouvant être utilisés en intérieur et en extérieur.
La tendance à la personnalisation des produits, le nombre croissant de solutions textiles pour POS ainsi que les techniques web-to-print et print-on-demand promettent de nouvelles opportunités de marché. Ces systèmes d'impression sont adaptés au polyester et aux mélanges de polyester, souvent utilisés en Soft Signage, pour les vêtements de sport et les textiles à usage domestique.
Avec la nouvelle Rhotex 325, Durst propose dans la catégorie des imprimantes 3,2 mètres un système d’impression polyvalent, qui allie l’impression directe sur textile et la technique de sublimation par transfert. Selon l’application et le tissu, il est possible de passer en un rien de temps du procédé par transfert à l’impression directe sur des matériaux en polyester.
Ceci est possible grâce à la nouvelle technologie de tête d’imprimante WTS de Durst, qui offre sur des matériaux de support divers une qualité d’impression exceptionnelle avec des encres à dispersion à base d’eau et avec une vitesse d’impression allant jusqu’à 390 m2/heure. Ce système robuste est doté d’un dispositif de séchage à air chaud intégré, d’un nettoyage automatique des buses et de fonctionnalités supplémentaires pour une production 7/7j et 24/24h.
La Rhotex 180 TR associe des capacités de production industrielles avec une qualité d'impression et une fiabilité maximales, conçues pour un fonctionnement en continu. L'imprimante produit des couleurs brillantes, des images ultra-nettes et un résultat impressionnant, résistant à l'usure et à l'eau.
Durst propose également un «kit d'impression directe» en option, pour l'impression directe sur textiles. Le passage entre l'impression par transfert et l'impression directe ne prend que quelques minutes et peut être effectué par un seul opérateur.
La Rhotex 500 s'intègre «sans jointure» dans le domaine du Soft Signage Avec une largeur d'impression inégalée de 5 mètres, la Rhotex 500 offre des produits Soft Signage sans jointure et extra-larges, et de véritables grands formats sur les points de vente, salons, stades, théâtres, salles de congrès et les lieux publics.
Une productivité maximale, une fiabilité permanente et une résolution allant jusqu'à 1200 dpi font de l'imprimante Rhotex HS une «bête de somme» imbattable sur le marché du Soft Signage.
Équipée de la technologie de tête d'impression éprouvée et brevetée Quadro Z de Durst, la Rhotex HS est la solution parfaite pour tout l'éventail d'applications Soft Signage et textiles.
La productivité de la Rhotex HS permet de s’adapter rapidement aux nouveaux besoins de la clientèle et garantit une production rentable dès le départ; entièrement en fonction des besoins et indépendamment du volume de la commande.
