The unveiling took place at the recent SGIA Expo in the US, the company says attendees were introduced to a high-quality printing platform that simplifies media handling with its automated feeder system, and makes reproduction of even difficult corporate colours with no special file preparation required.
The new Rho 900 is equipped with Durst’s Quadro 30D Array print head technology. Its media handling incorporates an auto-feed table with belts, sheet feed gate with guides for parallel board printing, and automatic two-point pin registration system to ensure accurate front-to-back registration, according to Durst.
The company continues that the Rho 900’s process colour additions are printed in the same mode as its CMYK process colours. Durst adds these additional colours can be printed with no loss in output speed, which enables much smoother colour gradients and more even solids at production-level output speeds.
Top speed of the 6-color Rho 900 is up to 216 boards (125x80cm) per hour. The user can incorporate the process colour additions with no loss of print speed, according to Durst.
Michael Lackner, marketing manager of Durst says, “The Rho 900 can also print white, varnish or light colours along with the new additional process colours to expand the possibilities of print jobs and applications.”
