June 14, 2010

The Tau 150 covers web widths from 10 cm (4”) to 16.5 cm (6.5”).

Durst, a manufacturer of industrial strength digital inkjet printers for the wide format graphics, ceramic tile markets, flooring, and label market, has installed the first Tau 150 UV inkjet high speed label press at Omnilabel in Dalfsen, the Netherlands, for beta testing.

Founded in 1997, Omnilabel is a medium sized label printer specializing in small and medium volumes of printed and blank labels. Because of an increasing demand for short runs and jobs with added value, the company evaluated various digital label press systems to find the best option that fits its current requirements amd offer potential for future growth.

“After evaluating a number of different suppliers and technologies,” says Mark Eshuis of Omnilabel, “we decided to invest in the Durst Tau 150 because the combination of printing method, printing quality and web widths suits perfectly to our existing workflow. Also, in our marketing and sales strategy we need this specific technology.”

The Tau 150 covers web widths from 10 cm (4”) to 16.5 cm (6.5”) and utilizes liquid UV ink technology. The system reaches a throughput speed close to 50 m/min (160 fpm). Durst’s Tau 150 delivers an apparent resolution in excess of 1000 dpi utilizing grayscale inkjet print head technology from Xaar. Durst’s proprietary UV inkjet technology features CMYK ink colors, plus white as an additional configuration option. A broad range of standard substrates are supported without the need for pre- and post-treatment.

Helmuth Munter, segment manager label printing at Durst, says, “Digital technology is one of the most exciting areas in label printing and converting today, impacting everything from pre-press to printing, personalization and finishing, offering huge potential for new products and services in a rapidly changing marketplace with an increasing demand towards personalized custom products in short run. We are glad to have Omnilabel as our partner for the first beta installation of our new Tau 150.”
