Durst’s Tau inkjet press draws attention at Labelexpo

September 30, 2011

The Tau press features seven colors plus a spot varnish that can result in different gloss levels in one pass along with the color inkjet printing.

The Tau 150 8C digital inkjet press from Durst, which made its debut at Labelexpo Europe 2009, continued to command attention at the 2011 show with its quality production, print speed of 48 m/m (157 fpm) and its inkjet spot varnish capability.

The short run press runs a maximum web width of 6.5 inches, has variable ink drop size and eight level grayscale technology that delivers an apparent resolution of more than 1,000 dpi. Durst’s proprietary Single Pass UV Inkjet Technology features standard CMYK plus white, as well as orange and violet, thereby offering 90 percent of the Pantone color gamut, depending on the substrate used.

The Tau can be equipped with a digital varnish print module for digital spot varnish applications, generating different gloss levels with one fluid in a single pass at the same time the labels are printed. The RIP software, powered by EskoArtwork, has built-in substrate calibration and color management to ensure high image quality and consistency.
