Etiquetas Rospil has taken the next step on its digital transformation by capturing new markets with an investment in a Durst Tau 330 RSC E to produce labels on the single-pass inkjet press.
Madrid-based converter became one of the first companies in Spain in 2013 to invest in digital ink-jet technology with Durst Tau 330/200, which produced more than 10 million linear meters to date. Rospil has now become the first company in Iberia to install the Durst Tau 330 RSC E to improve its versatility and provide faster order turnaround times to ease pressure on delivery requirements. Replacing the Tau 330, the machine also allows considerable ink consumption savings.
‘Each year there are an increasing number of customers who demand explicitly that their labels are produced with Durst Tau technology,’ said Jorge Pérez, deputy manager of Etiquetas Rospil. ‘It’s been unstoppable growth. Also, we are clear that the future of the sector is digital. That is why we decided to take a new step.
‘We have full confidence in Durst. Our experience with them has been second to none. There is nothing comparable in terms of quality and reliability and, now with the new Tau 330 RSC E, neither in productivity. Furthermore, the technical assistance offered by Durst Ibérica is fully personalized.’
The Tau 330 RSC E combines high print quality with an economic investment and is upgradeable to an 8-color label press to provide increased capacity when production requirements increase. Etiquetas Rospil’s model is equipped with four colors plus white.
‘We know the future is digital and we will make new progress in the coming years. This is another advantage of the Durst Tau 330 RSC E. It allows upgrades of productivity up to 80 linear meters a minute and add process colors to match our requirements. However, for now we are very happy with the current investment. In addition, we are already taking concrete steps in the Industry 4.0 transformation. This is the challenge we have to face in the coming years and by joining forces with a partner such as Durst in this transformation, we are encouraged to make further progress,’ concluded Pérez.
