Interview with Barbara Schulz - a lot of insights are available
At FESPA 2017
Insights on the Roadmap and Developments
Kick-off in Lana/South Tyrol
Brixen, Italy – 05/04/2017 – Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital production technologies, will be presenting various aspects of the subject of investment security and reliability at FESPA 2017. In the recent customer survey, “Perspective 2020”, Durst’s customers indicated that, in addition to technological innovation, customer integration has a particular relevance in working together to achieve commercial success. One example of what this type of commercial success can look like is illustrated by the development of roll-to-roll double-sided printing, which is available as a new option for the Rho flatbed printing systems. The starting point for the new feature was the company Eskils. The Swedish full-service printing provider began with large-format digital printing 10 years ago with two Rho 350 followed by two Rho 500, and invested in a Rho 1312 flatbed printing system with roll-printing option in 2015 in order to increase its productivity and expand its portfolio. Eskils’ core business is advertising media for the retail sector, where demand for products with double-sided printing has increased over time. Eskils’ technical director, Lars-Inge Brännmar, therefore faced the challenge of how to produce them 100% justified. As an initial solution, he developed marker points, but the constant manual working steps affected productivity. He imposed his requirement on Durst, and following a joint field test, the system for double-sided printing using sensors was developed into a viable product. The system is now available to all Rho users as an upgrade for the Rho 1312 as well as for the Rho P10 Series.

“Over the years, we have really come to value the reliability of Durst systems and were certain that, when we invested in the Rho 1312, we would have security of investment beyond the normal level thanks to Durst’s continuous development activities,” says Christian Nilsson, CEO of Eskils. “Of course, other companies are now also benefiting from our initiative, but we benefit from others, too. For example, in the area of soft signage, we can learn from the experience of existing Durst Rhotex customers, allowing us to analyze and implement textile applications with a greater focus in our market.”
Durst at FESPA Digital 2017
Durst will be presenting new products in its large format printing portfolio in Hall B7, Stand A20, at FESPA Digital 2017. Its trade show presence addresses two core topics. The company will be presenting its commercially successful Rho P10 250 HS Plus and Rho 512R Plus printing systems under the slogan of investment security and reliability; they offer a “plus” in efficiency and versatility with new features and enhancements. Innovation and sustainability are the keywords applied to the new Rhotex 325 and Rho WT 250 printing systems, which open up new market opportunities outside of the UV production portfolio offer thanks to Durst Water Technology. The products are complemented with new service options, including extended warranty periods and new virtual support and analytics functions. Durst will hold a press briefing at its booth on the second day of the trade show – at 10:00 a.m. on May 9, 2017 – to provide in-depth information about the new systems, and will also be available for individual meetings.

Its trade show presence addresses two core topics. The company will be presenting its commercially successful Rho P10 250 HS Plus and Rho 512R Plus printing systems under the slogan of investment security and reliability; they offer a “plus” in productivity and economy with new features and enhancements. The products are complemented by new service options, including extended warranty periods and new virtual support and analytics functions. Innovation and sustainability are the keywords applied to the new Rhotex 325 and Rho WT 250 printing systems that are being showcased. Thanks to Durst Water Technology and economically friendly applications, they open up new market opportunities outside of the UV production portfolio. With the DSR Automatica E, Durst will also be unveiling an initial system in its imaging segment. It is a standalone kiosk system equipped with 120° camera technology, which at the trade show will be integrated into a textile workflow process in order to demonstrate new design and product variations from a range of perspectives ad hoc. Durst will hold a press briefing at its stand on the second day of the trade show – at 10:00 a.m. on May 9, 2017 – to provide in-depth information about the new systems, and will also be available for individual meetings.

A new industrial printing system with a print width of 3.2 m for the area of soft signage. It allows environmentally friendly textile applications based on Durst Water Technology and delivers productivity of up to 390 m2/hour through either direct-to-textile printing or printing on transfer paper. The Rhotex 325 can be equipped with jumbo rolls to handle large print jobs and for unattended production, and also offers remote control and analytics functions to ensure continuous uptime.
Rho WT 250:
A new flatbed printing system featuring an uncompromising development of Durst’s Water Technology for environmentally friendly applications on paper media, corrugated boards, and plastics such as acrylic, polycarbonate, and polypropylene. It provides offset printing quality in look and feel and is economically viable from a batch size of 1.
Rho P10 250 HS Plus:
A further development of the successful P10 series with 40% greater productivity. It offers an ink-saver function, saving up to 15% of ink as well as an advanced application for hapt printing and roll-to-roll double-sided printing.
Rho 512R Plus:
A further development of the successful 5-meter extra-wide printing system with a new Fine Art printing mode at 1,200 dpi. Productivity is assured universally, even with light and process colors, and its robust design enables unattended 24/7 production. The Rho 512R Plus offers a new V-cut system and requires only minimal maintenance, guaranteeing continuous uptime. Moreover, new additional colors allow even finer color transitions and the faithful production of corporate brand standards.

Extended Service Options: Durst is extending its warranty period for new installations in the LFP segment up to 36 months in combination with newly designed service agreements. Besides machine availability – or uptime – Durst is also addressing “total cost of ownership” as a relevant factor for investment security and commercial success.
Durst Water Technology is a long-term strategy designed to offer digital printing systems with water-based, non-hazardous inks as a sustainable alternative to UV- and solventbased printing systems in all segments. The Delta 130 SPC uses Durst Water Technology inks in keeping with the quality, productivity and environmental demands of corrugated cardboard manufacturers and converters.
They represent the next technological milestone in water-based ink systems, as they allow premium quality, odorless, abrasion-resistant, glossy and lightfast end products to be produced in a single process.
Durst Water Technology means that pre-treatment, interim drying and laminating steps can be saved.
Thanks to its core competences in machine engineering, ink technology and print head technology (the magical triangle of inkjet printing), Durst stands for maximum print quality, uptime and productivity with minimum ink consumption.
Rho WT 250 represents a new generation of digital large format printers. The unique Durst Water Technology allows to print POP/ POS applications in offset quality. Thanks to efficiency of digital workflow the profitability already starts with short runs or one offs. On paper and fiber surfaces, best qualty results can be achieved at up to 190 m2/h.Especially for in-store applications, where odor-neutral atmospheres are crucial, the WT ink offers true added value and, compared to generation 1, a 60% increase in productivity.
By using the Durst Compound System, in addition to paper and fiber surfaces, plastics such as acyrlic, polypropylene, polycarbonate and PVC can be printed. An absolute versatility plus.The WT Inks are completely free of hazardous labeling and comply with the strictest health and safety regulations. For these reasons Rho WT 250 offers a sustainability plus and represents a secure future investment.
