Durst updates Tau RSC label printing platform with new features

Durst has updated its Tau RSC industrial label range to improve reliability, simplicity, speed and cost effectiveness so label converters can better meet changing market needs with digital technology. The key features and innovations were demonstratedon Durst's Tau RSCi and Tau 330 RSC UV inkjet single-pass presses at our Customer Experience Center in Brixen.

Similar in construction to the RSC E, the adaption of the press includes the new Durst corporate design and the company says all well known features are installed which include the infeed section which has sensors, a double sided web cleaner, a corona treatment feature and an insetter for reinsertion and double sided printing.

Helmuth Munter, Label and Flexible Packaging Segment Manager at Durst, commented, “Today, we count over 250 Durst Tau installations, of which close to 130 are Tau RSC installations, with many clients owning multiple machines that print in an industrial environment 24/7 in three shifts per day. So, we can proudly say, ‘We at Durst have advanced the digital transformation with our Tau single-pass inkjet technology in the label and flexible package printing market.”

“Single-pass inkjet has evolved to a mainstream label printing technology, with a market share of more than 25% globally,” he added.

Thomas Macina, who takes over from Munter as Durst’s new Global Sales Manager for Labels and Flexible Packaging, said, “Many Durst customers have successfully walked this path with the Durst Label & Flexible Packaging team. Durst grew with them, and they grew with our solutions. Therefore, we will continue to have our eyes open and our ears very close to the market to be able to understand and support our customers future needs. Our product portfolio has all the key capabilities and is well positioned to cover the requirements of the different print runs. The RSC E and RSC for short and medium runs, and the RSCi for medium and long runs.All our customers can count on Durst’s innovation and the continuous development of RSC technology as a platform for continued successful growth in the label and packaging printing industry.”

The printing unit centrepiece holds eight colours, including white and optional green, violet and orange, cyan, magenta, yellow and black.All colours have eight printheads which can print 80 metres per minute at 1200 dpi. The outfeed section is where the final curing takes place with two UV lamps around a chill roller and an operator inspection table with a camera for automatic nozzle compensation.

A new feature added to the Durst workflow labels software allows the operator to choose if he wants to print best match mode or with a special “save ink” mode which Durst claims that the customer can save 12 per cent on a CMYK press on ink cost.
