ITALY • The manufacturer of digital printing solutions announced a record number of attendees for its open house event currently running in Brixen, Italy. At the Durst Digital Days 2018 Durst, in cooperation with Italian printing lines manufacturer Omet, launched the newhybrid printing solution Omet XJet.
Guest speakers at the latest edition of the the renowned international open house included Rick Hulme from Sunjet, who discussed Inkjet Ink Development for Labels, and Package Printing and Color Alliance’s Rainer Esters who gave an overview of Durst’s Web To Print Solution. Bettina Offenegger also detailed Durst’s Symphony Workflow Solution and Manuel Gruber focused on Durst Label Global Service.
David Webster, The Label Makers UK managing director, spoke about the Tau 330 and the Tau 330 RSC beta test, while Ramon Krieg, Technical Production Manager at BMZ in Switzerland, explained how its Tau 330 with Low Migration Ink was building new business opportunities.
“Digital is now the clear preferred choice for us for smaller runs,” said Krieg from BMZ at the Durst Digital Days. “I believe that inkjet is the future, particularly now that our Durst Tau 330 is so cost-effective to run because there is no preparation time needed when you change jobs. And more of our work is increasingly short run.”
A factory tour included live demonstrations of the new Tau 330 RSC with in-line OMET Cflex X6. The 78 m/min (245 fpm) UV inkjet label and package printing press with a 330 mm (13″) print width and 1200 x 1200 dpi printing resolution has eight color stations (CMYK+W+OVG).
