ITALY • Durst, manufacturer of digital production technologies, and Omet, manufacturer of printing and converting machines, unveiled the new “Omet XJet”, a new integreated hybrid line for labels and package printing. The new hybrid printing platform is integrating Durst’s Tau 330 digital inkjet system with Omet X6 flexo stations and converting units and was introduced at the Durst Digital Days 2018.
The UV inkjet printing press featuring 330 mm (13”) print width with maximum print speed of 78 m/min (245 fpm) at 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. Thanks to its eight color stations (CMYK+W+OVG) with new designed high pigmented inks it delivers outstanding print quality with 98% pantone color gamut coverage.
Durst inkjet technology together with Omet X6’s finishing and converting units like cold foil, hot foil, lamination, varnishing, die-cutting and slitting assure reliability and excellent results at every run, with the advantage of obtaining the final product in one single passage.
According to the companies the hybrid solution broadens the opportunities for label printers thanks to its flexible configuration. It can be used as hybrid solution, flexo stand-alone or digital stand-alone according to the length of the run or the level of personalization required. The aim is to help printers to optimize production time and costs, getting faster ROI and open new market opportunities.
The new line is being officially presented to more than a 100 customers at Durst’s Digital Days at its Italian headquarters in Brixen, northern Italy. The three-day event is taking place from 7 to 9 February. A more detailed articles by NarrowWebTech including pictures will follow soon!
