Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific will provide digital label printing solutions with the Durst Tau 330 to meet customers' increasing demand to convert time-consuming print jobs run on conventional presses into profitable print jobs. The Durst Tau 330 UV digital inkjet printer prints images on the substrate by exposing its ink to UV light, which dries the ink almost immediately. This allows it to print directly onto various substrates quickly, including heat-sensitive films and labels. As the UV ink dries faster than solvent ink, the digital UV inkjet technology built into the system meets the need for efficient printing.
The Tau 330 series delivers sharp, precise, and durable print quality at a high speed for today's most demanding print applications. Through Durst's single-pass UV inkjet printing technology with dual printhead architecture, it prints in full color at a high speed of 37 linear meters per minute while printing in the highest print resolution in UV inkjet label printer class of 1,260 dots per inch, in high definition mode.
"This partnership between Durst and Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific is a perfect fit for two market leaders," says Helmuth Munter, segment manager, Labels and Package Printing, Durst. "Fuji Xerox is a leading company in the Document Services and Communications field and Durst is a leading manufacturer of professional digital imaging systems. Together, we aim to expand our market in Asia Pacific through the vast network of Fuji Xerox to provide added values to customers in the region."
Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific has an exclusive distributorship with Durst, a leading provider of digital UV inkjet label press in Asia Pacific, including Australia, New Zealand, China (including Taiwan and Hong Kong), while it has non-exclusive distributorship in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Myanmar and Cambodia.
Steve Ford, general manager, Production Sales & Marketing, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific, comments: "As packaging and label markets are linked to consumer spending and population growth, it is a key printing segment with great potential. Today digital printing has limited penetration in this segment, however, as it advances globally and the demand for traditional printing tapers off, many of our existing customers are rapidly diversifying and are looking to us for a reliable and comprehensive solution. This partnership will help our customers expand and grow their business in the label and packaging segment of the industry."
The Durst Tau 330 series comprises the Tau 330, an entry-level Tau 330E, and an optional inline Laser Finishing System.
