Mezographic makes major Durst buy

Melbourne’s Mezographic has purchased the Durst P5 250HS, the first of its kind in Australia, with the deal being finalised on day three of Fespa.

The €750,000 investment by the wide format trade printer will include a presentation of its P5 at PrintEx.

Frank Mezo, owner, Mezographic, says, “I saw the 250HS in beta stage a year ago at the Durst site and absolutely fell in love with it. Matt Ashman was showing me the Rho 1312, and I noticed the 250HS, and asked, what’s that?

“It was the best UV digital print I had ever seen, and with the combination of the quality and speed that this is capable of, it is really the only digital printer that has excited me in the past two years.”

Matt Ashman, sales manager Australia and New Zealand, Durst, says, “With speeds topping out at 600sqm/h it is a real production beast.”

When asked if he thinks he will make others jealous at PrintEx, Mezo laughed off the question, saying, “We are trade printers, so they can always send a job over.”

Christoph Gamper, CEO, Durst, says, “The new P5 platform, including workflow software and advanced service tools, represents our key strategy to further invest into large format printing technology and further afield. We believe that there is a lot to explore in this market space and the P5 250 HS is our first statement. In an integrated world, printers need to change as well. With the P5 family we provide tools for change and profit – and our firm commitment to continue to lead the innovation in the large format market.”

At day one of Fespa, Durst revealed that all of its new printer sales will include its Workflow Print software and Durst Analytics.
