First Tau 330 RSC E in China – “Technology gives competitive advantage”

Success Stories
Customer Success Story: Shandong Golden Realm Industrial CO., LTD.

Founded in 2007, Shandong Golden Realm Industrial is a rising star in China thanks to excellent print products for outdoor use and its outstanding service. In 2019, general manager Kang Weiyi began to expand into the field of customized personalization.

Wanting only the best equipment, he chose another Durst printing solution. After the positive experience with its Durst Rhotex 325, this time Golden Realm invested in a Tau 330 RSC E, making the company the first in the Chinese market to acquire a digital label printer with Tau RSC technology.

Kang emphasizes: “The decision to go with Durst is fully in line with Golden Realm’s market positioning, especially our need for the best equipment. Durst printers are capable of adding great value to a business. When we are looking to grow a business segment, we strategically select products that will give us a competitive advantage. Although we always keep an eye on the price/performance ratio.

“Particularly because Durst is at the cutting edge of the competition, we as customers and suppliers can benefit from the good reputation of the Durst brand and the great service. And thus also ride the wave of success. This actually effectively compensates the initial higher acquisition costs.”

BEB Etiket / Izmir decided to invest in DURST RSC Technology …

Another DURST Tau RSC installation, Izmir/Turkey

LinoSistem / Lino Group, the distributor of advanced digital printing and production technologies, announced that “BEB ETIKET”, established in Izmir, has invested in the DURST Tau 330 RSC UV-InkJet single-pass digital label printing system for the transition to digital production.

BEB Etiket was established in 2017 in Izmir by Ms. Berrin KURTULUS. Ms. Berrin is having more than twenty years of experience in the label industry.  BEB Etiket is offering to its clients high quality label and packaging services including also value-added production operations such as silk screen, gilding and embossing.

Having planned a new investment in 2020, BEB Etiket opted for DURST UV Inkjet RSC technology after long research and evaluation in digital labeling and packaging systems and placed its order to start production in May 2021.

As founder and partner of BEB Label Ms. Berrin explains that:  “As BEB ETİKET we are determined to continue with digital investments, which is the necessity of our time, and with the understanding of the quality of services we proceeded to the investment of Durst Tau 330 RSC E. We have also found that it does all this at the lowest cost among the technologies on the market, almost at the same cost as the flexo printing system which all those feature will make us competitive in market”.

LinoSistem Sales Manager Hakan ŞAHİN said: “We would like to express our gratitude to BEB Etiket, who believes in us and DURST products, especially in the environment where limited marketing and sales actions are possible during the Covid-19 process.” Hakan ŞAHİN continues, “After examining today’s market in such detail and focusing on the future, we are very pleased that BEB Label chose Durst technology to continue its growth. It is clear that Durst Tau RSC’s market leading capabilities, flexibility and productivity meet all BEB Label customer portfolio demands”.

The Tau 330 RSC E UV inkjet single-pass press is available with 330mm and 244mm print widths, and in 4-color or 4-color plus white configurations. Its native resolution is 1200 x 1200 dpi, with a drop size of 2-picoliters. A production capacity of 1020 m2 an hour is achievable with a printing speed of 52 linear mt/min at full color including white. High pigmented inks reduce ink consumption, optimizing running costs to the lowest possible level according to Durst. Other features for the well-established Tau RSC press portfolio include; “High Opacity White” print mode for an increased “screen-like” opacity and a  “High Speed White” print mode that allows high speed printing at 80 lin. meters of all colors including White.

Wagner wins world’s best Durst label with Tau Truce job

Aussie label operation Wagner Prestige Labels has won first prize at the International Durst RSC Label Awards, beating off global competition to win the accolade in the live-streamed event.

The awards were part of the Durst Digital Days Presentation which came live from the Durst Campus in Brixen Italy.

Matt Ashman, CEO at Durst Oceania said, “Well done John Galea and the team at Wagner. It is a tremendous result. Competition was strong, but the quality of the job was outstanding.”

Wagner Prestige Labels captured the RSC Combination Print category for its Truce Wine of Australia label. The label was printed four-colour on the company’s new Durst Tau 330 RSC E inkjet label press, onto Avery’s Estate 8 media, and finished on screen with black, varnish and high-build.

Speaking to Print21 John Galea, managing director of the Wetherill Park business said, “The quality we achieve with the Durst inkjet printing 1200 x 1200dpi is remarkable. I think the judges would certainly have been impressed with the detail in the roses, and with the finish.

“Wine is a passion of mine, I have been involved with wine printing for 25 years, I understand the demands. While it makes up only around five per cent of our work it is an important sector for us.”

Wagner Prestige Labels is now producing a third of its labels on its new Durst, and enjoying dramatically reduced waste levels. It installed the Tau 330 RSC E a year ago, along with ABG converting equipment.

The Durst Digital Days included a virtual tour of the Customer Experience Center and headquarters campus in Italy. Together with partners and customers, experts from Durst’s label and flexible packaging segment provided updates on latest developments and an experience of the new Tau RSC platform, its printing solutions, and ink systems. 

Winning label: Wagner’s Truce job

Topics covered progress on the Tau RSCi beta test, Durst RSC Low Migration Solutions, and hybrid label production with the new Omet XJet – powered by Durst.

Wagner’s choice of Durst’s RSC technology was driven by speed, quality and environmental considerations. “We decided to ramp up digital colour capacity to the highest we could, and the Durst Tau 330 RSC E came up trumps,” said John Galea, managing director of Wagner Prestige Labels, of Wetherill Park, Sydney.

“In only six months it has really proved itself, to the point that digital is now between 30 and 35 per cent of our business. The quality of the labels is right up there with flexo and letterpress.

“Another important benefit is that waste is greatly reduced, with the threaded meterage on the Durst Tau 330 RSC E even being able to be drawn back and printed. Waste is a big issue for label printers, especially with multiple versions, so anything we can do to reduce it is good for the environment.”

 

Helmuth Munter, Durst segment manager, Label & Flexible Packaging, said: “The Tau RSC is a gamechanger for us as a company and for all our customers. With that in mind, we challenged them to take part in the Durst RSC Label Masters awards. There were an impressive number of entries. They were all inspiring, making it a difficult task for the judges to choose the winners.”

DURST PROVIDES THE AGILITY KEY TO UNLOCK VGL GROWTH OPPORTUNITY

Brixen, Italy 24.03.2021 – VGL, a long-standing customer of Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, has invested in a new Rhotex 325 production press to meet growing customer demands for more flexible and agile ways of working.

Live production has started this month at VGL’s headquarters in Reading, Berkshire, with the Durst Rhotex 325 perfectly suited to the multi award-winning screen and digital print company’s expansion requirements. Already owning several Durst digital production presses, VGL needed to increase capacity and speed to cope with changing market demands. One new specialist area will involve printing on stretch materials, as well as on transfer papers and textiles. 

“We needed a decisive response to increased demands for fast turnaround and just-in-time delivery,” said VGL Production Director Mark Elen. “The Durst Rho 325 literally eats the volumes and is 3-4 times faster than the machines it will replace. Speed is really important when you have multiple clients all wanting their jobs straight away. It’s apparent from this pandemic, more than ever you need to be extremely agile. It’s an even more competitive market where, for example, we get asked by internationally-renowned brands to change job specications at a moment’s notice. And often you won’t know whether it’s 300 or 3,000 square meters to be printed. The Durst machines are absolutely superb and extremely reliable.”

VGL’s broad portfolio covers outdoor signage, transport, architectural, retail and promotional work as well as consultancy and strategic project management. The one-stop shop also has a creative studio and provides full services from idea concept through to installation completion. In recent years, it has won awards such ‘Out of Home’ printer (PrintWeek), ‘Innovation’ (Digital Printer) and ‘Posters’ / Best in Show (both FESPA).

Mr Elen said: “We’re dedicated to innovation and committed to investing in the latest technology, which Durst provides. Durst, like VGL, is a family-owned business and has people who are easy to deal. The organization understands our business, is very supportive to our exacting requirements and the service levels are high. This is a real partnership.”

The Rhotex 325 is a dual purpose printing system that combines direct-to textile printing with dye sublimation transfer printing technology. Depending on the application and fabric, this printing system can alternate between paper transfer and direct printing on polyester-based materials in no time. This is possible, thanks to the new Durst WTS printhead technology, which achieves an exceptionally high-quality print using water-based environmentally friendly dispersion inks for various printing materials, and reaches a printing speed of up to 4,195 sq ft/hour.

Peter Bray, Managing Director of Durst UK & Ireland, said: “VGL is an example of how companies continue to buy into the Durst ethos and world-class expertise, rather than just an investment in systems and software. This provides the confidence to control costs  and make the most of new business opportunities. We’re extremely proud that our systems continue to be the catalyst to help them grow and open new avenues, including printing on transfer paper and textiles. We anticipate making more announcements soon.”

DURST “PIXEL TO OUTPUT” IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS!

 

Frankfurt based Edel Messereklame is an established large format printer in Germany’s Rhine-Main region with a clear focus on business with exhibitions and events. Messe Frankfurt, for which Edel produces the complete wayfinding and signage systems for a number of trade fairs, is one prime customer. As a specialist for digital large format printing, the firm also caters for a huge range of other applications – including mega posters and banners on PVC, textiles or glass fiber as well as foil lettering.

It goes without saying that the business climate for Edel Messereklame, with its strong emphasis on exhibitions and events, has taken a dramatic turn for the worse as a result of the coronavirus crisis. “We launched into 2020 raring to go but then Covid-19 sent shock waves through all of our plans. We took advantage of the unexpected time on our hands to push ahead with digitization on all levels and move towards a more differentiated portfolio,” says Chief Operating Officer Christian Oehne, summing up the last few months.

Long-standing cooperation with Durst

Edel was founded around 60 years ago as a manufacturer of signs – at a time when advertising was still in its infancy. Today, the company employs about 30 people at its two sites.
Sales, graphic design and prepress are combined under one roof at the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition Center while all production activities take place on 1000 square meters of floor space in Bad Homburg. The first digital large format system was installed back in the year 2000 and the first Durst solution – a Rho 351 – in 2007. This was subsequently replaced in 2014 by a Rho 312 roll printer which is still in use today.

A concept fulfilled

“We’d already known for a while that our processes were in urgent need of optimization. However, in the hectic daily routine those good intentions were not followed through,” Oehne continues, stressing that the supply chain is where money is earned nowadays rather than with printing itself. Durst’s “Pixel to Output” concept represents a strategy for end-to-end digitalization involving all stakeholders – from customers to producers and suppliers. “We were convinced by the idea of a smart factory from the outset. It was LIFT, which is an ERP system developed together with a large format printer in the United Sates and specifically tailored to the needs of the LFP sector, that ultimately tipped the scales in our decision to realize this project with Durst.”

P5 – a flexible, hybrid solution

The Durst investment package comprises various hardware and software solutions, for example the P5 350 printing system, which is suitable for printing on both roll media and board up to a width of 3.5 meters. “The hybrid solution gives us tremendous flexibility. It significantly expanded our roll printing capacity, meaning we can respond even faster in the run-up to exhibitions and trade shows. And the option of printing on board is something that sets us permanently apart from competitors,” Oehne claims. Edel also acquired two of the key software tools in the Durst Ecosystem along with the P5 series printer. Durst Workflow+ automates the prepress workflow by automating data preparation and managing the entire production process centrally on all integrated printing systems, whether from Durst and third-party. Durst Analytics, on the other hand, provides valuable analyses of productivity statistics and printer workload right down to single jobs. Problems are diagnosed at an early stage and solved as part of preventive maintenance – leading to a further improvement in production reliability.

LIFT uplifts the supply chain

“The Durst Software Ecosystem has helped us establish a digital, end-to-end workflow that speeds up production, frees up resources and ensures consistently high quality. LIFT is a cloud based ERP system that has uplifted our complete supply chain from the time the order is placed to delivery,” Oehne confirms. According to the COO, LIFT’s number one USP is aptly illustrated by an actual POS campaign that was mailed to 1200 addresses. Different designs and quantities had to be produced for every single address. “We saved the administrative and production-specific data in the system and LIFT took care of the rest – it was truly awesome!”

The investment package was simultaneously linked to the objective of reaching new customer groups in both the B2B and B2C segments. Durst’s Smart Shop is a simple, and above all scalable, entry-level solution for e-commerce with the accent on user friendliness. Professional web stores can be set up in no time thanks to its modular design while visitors can obtain fully personalized prints using the integrated Smart Editor. Christian Oehne: “We got off to a very successful start in online printing with edel-pix.de, the first web store that targets mainly private individuals. And a second store for B2B clients called edel-print.com is all set to go live in the near future.” He insists that without the Durst Smart Shop, it would have taken far longer to build a made-to-measure web store for personalized print products and affirms that the “Pixel to Output” concept has now been fully implemented.
