The Netherlands • Omnilabel and Durst are intensifying their cooperation by installing the new digital UV inkjet label press Tau 330. In 2010, Omnilabel was the first customer to install the Tau 150 Label Printer, in order to open up new market potential with digital label production. Due to the increasing demand of digitally printed label jobs, an expansion of the production capacity has now become necessary.
The Tau 330 is equipped with Xaar 1001 single-pass print-heads and has a maximum print width of 330 mm with a maximum print speed of 48 m/min. This allows a production capacity of 950 m2. The standard ink configuration of CMYK can be upgraded on-demand with White and two additional process colors such as Orange and Violet, which are indispensable for label applications with a pantone color space. Even the standard version of the Tau 330 comes with comprehensive RIP software with integrated substrate and color management options. With the new high definition print mode, the Tau 330 now achieves a resolution of 720 x 1260 dpi.
