Durst Group launches P5 350 HS PACK

The Durst Group has launched the P5 350 HS PACK, a highly automated solution for digital corrugated and display printing.

The P5 350 HS PACK expands Durst’s PACK series, which is specially tailored to the production of corrugated displays and packaging.

According to the company, the P5 350 HS PACK combines the versatility of a P5 hybrid printing system with the ability to print on a wide range of materials used in the POP/POS and retail markets.

Andrea Riccardi, head of product management, graphics at Durst, said the P5 350 HS PACK is the result of Durst’s customer-oriented approach.

“The modular design of the P5 technology platform enables us to develop new products for a wide range of applications. We identify market requirements and incorporate them into our development process,” said Riccardi.

Matt Ashman, managing director of Durst Oceania, said further innovations from the team at Durst HQ are exciting and the P5 350 HS PACK does not disappoint.

“The new P5 PACK series is tailored to the needs of a corrugated packaging environment with, new automation, new inks, and more software integration. What is particularly exciting is that this will be available to Durst Oceania customers from Q3 this year,” said Ashman.

The P5 PACK series is equipped with all the functions that enable efficient print production of corrugated boards. The width and height are set automatically by simply selecting the media channel in the software, which significantly reduces set-up time. In addition, P5 350 HS PACK vacuum system increases the suction power on the print belt by up to 40 per cent compared to the conventional systems.

The P5 PACK series includes the sensor-controlled Multitrack six function. Managed by six independent printing queues, this enables up to six corrugated boards to be printed in parallel by manual feeding.

To maximise production potential of the printing system, the P5 Pack series, as all P5 printing systems, can be equipped with the proprietary Durst Workflow Rip/Color Management and Analytics software.In this context, the P5 350 HS PACK can be combined with the Durst Automat MT.

With this new solution for the automatic feeding and stacking of boards, up to four lanes can be processed in parallel. The multi-lane operation of the Automat MT works together with the Multitrack 6 function of the P5 350 HS PACK. Finely tuned movements of the suction elements in combination with a reinforced blow and brush bar result in clean and fast media separation, even with difficult synthetic boards and thin substrates.

Continuous and stable production is ensured by pneumatically controlled flaps that prevent the materials from slipping during the loading and unloading process. The entire printing process is continuously monitored by surveillance cameras. The feed and delivery tables have also been further developed to ensure smooth transportation of the boards.

Christian Harder, vice president sales at Durst Group, said the Automat MT will help take productivity to new levels.

“With the Automat MT, we can map different levels of automation, ranging from 3/4 to full automation. This allows us to raise our customers’ productivity to a new level.”

New inks on board

As part of the P5 PACK series, Durst is also introducing a new ink set that is specially tailored to the requirements of display and packaging printing.

The LUVERA LED ink is characterised by low odour and high abrasion resistance. The LUVERA inks are also IKEA and IOT-Mat compliant.

According to the company, the LUVERA LED ink is the result of a holistic ink development program that Durst has undertaken in the last years, which will expand the Durst ink portfolio during 2024 to cover a wide range of applications and market requirements.
