Durst to unveil four new wide format printers

Durst will use next week’s Fespa show in Hamburg to show two new wide format printers and two updated versions of existing models.

This new Rhotex 325 is a 3.2m wide textile printer capable of producing up to 390 sqm/hr.

The two new printers are the Rhotex 325 and the Rho WT 250 that both use Durst’s hybrid water technology. The Rhotex 325 is an industrial textile printer with a print width of 3.2m aimed at the soft signage market. It can produce up to 390 sqm/hr, printing direct-to-textile or transfer paper. It accepts jumbo rolls for unattended production of large jobs. It also boasts remote control and analytics functions.

The Rho WT 250 has been shown at last year’s Fespa show whilst still in development but is now commercially available. It’s a flatbed machine for printing to paper media, corrugated boards, and plastics such as acrylic, polycarbonate, and polypropylene. Durst claims offset printing quality in look and feel.

There are new Plus versions of the Rho P10 and Rho 512R, which are said to offer a boost in productivity. The Rho P10 250 HS Plus builds on the existing P10 with 40% greater productivity. There’s an ink-saver function that Durst says can save up to 15% of ink. It also includes an advanced application for hapt printing and roll-to-roll double-sided printing.

The Rho 512R Plus adds a new Fine Art printing mode at 1,200 dpi to the existing 5m wide printer. There’s also a new V-cut system and it’s said to require only minimal maintenance. There are additional colors for finer colour transitions and the faithful reproduction of corporate brand standards.

There are also new service options including extended warranty periods and new virtual support and analytics functions. 

Durst will also show the DSR Automatica E, a standalone kiosk system equipped with 120° camera technology that will be integrated into a textile workflow process.

Expect more on this story next week after Durst’s press conference at Fespa.
