Durst/Omet – Hybrid press debut at Labelexpo Americas
USA • Durst has integrated the Omet XFlex X6 modules into its Tau 330 UV inkjet label press to offer a range of in-line pre- and post-press options. The new press configuration will made her debut at Labelexpo Americas. The Omet integration provides a new primer station for increased material flexibility and a range of post-press finishing options for a complete in-line label production package.
Also shown for the first time in the US is the entry level Tau 330 E UV inkjet label press featuring high pigmented UV inks for reduced ink consumption. In addition, Durst launches its own dedicated label workflow software suite. Workflow-Label is a modular, expandable system which includes order entry, pre-press, RIP, color management, ink costing and production data management. Functionality includes automated knock-out of non-print areas resulting in lower ink consumption, a browser-based interface for immediate job costing and what Durst says is an easy to use high speed variable data functionality.
