Durst expands RSC platform

Durst is expanding its RSC platform of UV inkjet label presses

Durst is expanding its RSC platform of UV inkjet label presses with several new innovations, which visitors can see at Labelexpo Europe 2019.

New label workflow and pre-press software together with a modular Tau RSCi UV inkjet digital label press and low-migration inks are being shown for the first time on its stand 9C50 at Labelexpo 2019 in Brussels, Belgium. 

Dedicated workflow software for Web2Production and Durst’s own prepress software 'Workflow Label' offered by Durst Professional Services to customize MIS integration software packages are being showcased. New features of the Durst Workflow Label combined with the adapted Durst Smart Shop and integration packages help to fulfil Industry 4.0 standards and drive forward the expanded Tau RSC portfolio. 

The new Tau RSCi on show together with current Tau 330 RSC and RSC-E presses has print widths of 330, 420 or 508mm (13, 16.5 or 20in) and a higher printing speed of up to 100 linear m/min. New features for the RSC portfolio include a high opacity White Print Mode for an increased screen-like opacity and a High Speed White mode that allows high speed printing at 80 linear m/min of all colors, including white. Also at Labelexpo is a new low-migration UV ink developed for the RSC platform, which is compliant with EUPIA and Swiss Ordinance regulations for food and pharmaceutical packaging. 

Helmuth Munter, Durst’s segment manager, labels and package printing, said: ‘Labelexpo marks 10 years of Durst in the label industry with a raft of new innovations: first with seven colors, first with chill roller, first with low-migration ink and first with an inert curing system. Introduced two years ago, the Tau 330 RSC and Tau 330 RSC E set a new benchmark in label printing and we now have more than 50 installations around the world. We are confident that our updated Tau RSC platform will once again set the base for the future of industrial digital inkjet printing in the label industry.'
