September 24, 2009

The inkjet printing machine coupled with the finishing equipment provides an end-to-end label production system.

Durst, a manufacturer of industrial strength digital printing equipment for the wide format graphics, photographic and ceramic tile markets, announces the immediate availability of the new Tau 150 digital UV inkjet label printing press and the new Rotoworx 330 family of finishing systems.

Durst’s end-to-end system includes prepress workflow software, a high speed liquid UV ink label press with variable data printing capability, and a matching diecutting and lamination unit, dedicated to the special requirements of the short-run label production market.

The Tau 150 covers web widths from 10 cm (4”) to a maximum 16.5 cm (6.5”) and utilizes liquid ink technology. The system reaches a throughput speed of close to 50 m/min (160 fpm). The Xaar based inkjet system features CMYK plus an optional white.

The Rotoworx 330 range includes product unwind, semi-rotary diecutting, lamination, matrix rewind, and two product rewind modules. It has a web width of 33cm (13”) and is available in a standard version – the 330 with a speed of up to 25m/min (80 fpm) and a high-speed version – the 330HS with a speed of up to 50m/min (160 fpm). The system features a web transport based on Durst’s patented ISO tensioning technology with registration accuracy of ±180 microns and a min/max repeat size of 20.3cm (8”) and 40.6cm (16”).
