Following the successful beta testing of its new single-pass UV inkjet digital Tau RSCi Label Press at LabelPrint OÜ, Durst has incorporated the inputs into the machine and will soon share the results during an online event.
The investment from LabelPrint OÜ, a label-making company from Tallinn, Estonia, is a key part of its strategy to move medium and long run flexo jobs to digital UV inkjet printing.
In a continuing trustful relationship, LabelPrint OÜ provided extremely valuable inputs to Durst that have now been incorporated into the Tau RSCi platform, which is starting full commercial production.
The results of this extensive collaboration will be shared at an online event, headlined “All you need is RSC”, on June 15 at 10am CEST (6pm AEST) and 5pm CEST (1am AEST on June 16).
The 20-minute presentation from the Durst headquarters in Brixen, Italy, will cover unique insights into latest label developments and the new extended Tau RSC platform.
LabelPrint OÜ owner Sten Sarap said the new Tau RSCi offers enormous potential and possibilities in digital production.
“We are very happy with the opportunities and positive after the installation, particularly with the many further improvements to the software. The new Tau RSCi offers lots of possibilities in digital production, which I see as the future,” he said.
“Digital production on the RSCi is constant, running in three shifts. The new machine gives us the ability to print far more in a short lead time so we are moving more jobs from flexo to digital because we can print extremely fast at unbelievably high quality.
“Another welcome factor has been the ease of use of the machine. Our operators were fully trained within two weeks of the Tau RSCi arriving when it takes far longer to train somebody for flexo printing, sometimes up to a year.”
Durst Oceania managing director, Matt Ashman told Sprinter that the event showcases Durst’s wide spectrum of products within packaging.
“With the suite of products announced at the Durst Corrugated 360° event in Brixen, it proves that Durst has some real alternatives to the traditional, litho, and litho-am processes,” he said.
“Especially with our SmartShop B2B and B2C product for the online design of packaging for corrugated, this can give a business in the sector a new revenue stream or a complete new solution in the packaging market.”
Durst Group global sales manager of label and flexible packaging Thomas Macina said the exercise was an active partnership, characterised by a close and productive approach in this beta testing.
“Our grateful thanks to LabelPrint OÜ. With 10 Tau RSCis already installed across the world, we are confident of success as we start full commercial production. Label converters who are curious and want to see the extended portfolio and latest developments are invited to our must-watch online event – All you need is RSC – on 15 June,” he said.
“Labels continues to be a significant growth business for Durst, not least because increasing numbers of converters such as LabelPrint OÜ are recognising the benefits of transferring more volume from flexo to our digital platform to offer competitive prices to meet their own customers’ bespoke requirements and needs.”
