Tau 330 RSC is a digital UV inkjet labels and packaging printer with a print width of 330 mm (13 in.) and a printing speed of up to 78 running meters per minute (255.10 feet per minute).

This corresponds to a production capacity of 1,485 m2 per hour (15,984 sqft per hour) at a print resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. Equipped with 8 colors (CMYK + W + OVG) for the newly developed, highly pigmented Durst Tau inks, the printer produces outstanding near-flexo print quality and achieves up to 98% simulation of the Pantone color space. In accordance with the Durst Tau motto „Configure Your Digital Future“, the Tau 330 RSC works as a stand-alone printer, as a printing system in combination with the inline laser finishing system LFS 330, or as a hybrid solution with the addition of conventional finishing options in the OMET XFlex-X6 series. This gives the user unlimited flexibility in terms of materials and a broad range of applications.
