Printed Easy increases production capacity with Durst Tau

UK converter intends to use the new digital press to increase production capacity for its labels and stickers by 300 percent.

UK web-to-print specialist Printed Easy’ has invested in Tau RSC E LED inkjet technology from Durst which will increase production capacity for its labels and stickers by 300 percent. 

The Letchworth, Hertfordshire, company’s newest press runs at 52m/min and is configured with CMYK plus white high performance Tau RSC UV LED ink that has great resistance and durability. 

The Durst Tau RSC E LED has already begun production and managing director Jon Lancaster said: ‘The Durst is faster than the machine it replaces and has some clear advantages. It works well on PP substrates with no primer and has a wider color gamut. We’ve also got the new LED drying on it. Instead of a regular lamp that’s on all the time, it switches on whenever there is pigment present.’ 

Simon Cosh, labels business development manager of Durst UK & Ireland, said: ‘It is fantastic that Printed Easy has chosen Durst technology for its first investment in inkjet. Jon and his team are always investigating the latest, most innovative, effective and efficient systems to meet the business’s needs and we look forward to seeing the Durst Tau RSC E LED positively impact production. Our market-leading Tau technology with its unique capability of printing up to 12000 x 1200 DPI is proving to be a real vote-winner for an increasing number of customers who see LED digital inkjet the future for their business.’ 

Printed Easy has 57 employees and is expected to achieve a turnover of GBP 15.7m (USD 19.8m) this year.
