Victorian-based printer Mezographic has purchased a Durst P5 350 HS D4 with full automation – the first of its kind in Australia.

Mezographic owner Frank Mezo told Sprinter that the key to this purchase was its automation as it will be paired with a cutting solution that also provides automation from pallet to pallet.

“We will be able to take a pallet of paper, print it, stack it, then cut it and stack it and take it to our packing team without human hands touching it,” he said.

Mezo said he started looking into another Durst P5 at FESPA 2022 and confirmed the purchase on the Durst stand at FESPA 2023 in Munich.

“This is an ideal workhorse for a lot of our large volume print work for retailers through print management organisations,” Mezo said.

“First and foremost, I purchase Durst machines due to their reliability. I already have three Durst systems – and this will be the fourth. We had the first Durst P5 in Australia and we also have a 512 and a 312.

“We always move forward with what we buy – and we look for efficiencies – especially things like automation. We have recently purchased the factory next door that has given us extra room to expand.”

Durst Oceania managing director Matt Ashman confirmed that this will be the first Durst P5 350 HS D4 with full automation to land in Australia and will be arriving imminently in Melbourne.

“It is an honour to be able to supply Frank with a fourth machine. Frank has always been such a fantastic supporter of Durst. He identified that this solution delivers what he needs for his business and he really works the machines to their full potential, which is what we love,” Ashman said.
