Durst – Tau 330 RCS for demonstrating UV inkjet single pass printing
USA • The real-time production possibilities UV inkjet single pass printing technology delivers will be demonstrated by Durst’s new Tau 330 RSC, at Labelexpo Americas 201t in Chicago (stand 5901). Among the highlights of the system, according to Durst, is its high printing resolution, unmatched printing speed and eight-colour printing stations.
The Durst Tau 330 RSC is a UV inkjet label and package printing press featuring 330 mm (13 in.) print width combined with leading edge print speed of up to 78 linear meters/min (245 ft./min) at a resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi. It runs at 1.485 m²/h, and due to its eight colour stations (CMYK+W+OVG) with new designed high pigmented inks, it delivers flexo-like print quality with close to 95% Pantone color gamut coverage, according to the company.
According to Helmuth Munter, Global Segment Manager for Labels & Package Printing at Durst Group, ten installation of the Durst Tau 330 RSC were already achieved in Europe.
The Tau 330 RSC is available as standalone version or can be configured as “digital-flexo hybrid press” with Omet’s Xflex series of conventional finishing options. According to the company it is suitable for a range of applications.
Its configuration options include jumbo unwinder and material pre-treatment options like inline corona, web cleaner, priming as well as post press finishing options like varnishing, cold foil, lamination, die-cutting, slitting and rewinding.
Demonstrations by the Tau 330 RSC will highlight the range of applications possible. Also on demonstration will be the Durst powered Omet XJet. Both systems will be distributed by Omet US in North America.
