With fully-integrated production line, the company is capable of Offset & Flexo printing technology with Shrink Sleeve, Hot/Cold Foil Stamping, Screen Printing and post-printing solutions.

Recently, Ugur Etiket decided to add digital label and packaging production to cover the up to date customer needs & orders. After thoroughly researching the market the Ugur Label & Printing chose the Durst UV inkjet label press TAU 330 RSC E in a 6 color configuration.

Mr. Nazim Oztahtaci, Owner of the company said: “We think that the future in label and packaging printing is digital and this was mainly the reason for our investment. We decided to go with Durst after comparing several printers in the market. The quality of Durst is superior and comparable to screen printing and this will enable us to continue the tradition of delivering high quality prints to our customers. We will add also new applications with the new digital press, especially Colorful VDP. The press is upgradable and will cope with growth we expect. And also an important factor is Durst Workflow, the right workflow from pixel to output.”

The press is available in 330mm print width, offering 6 colors, including Orange and white option, in full-speed mode. Its native resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi combined with its smallest drop size of 2pl and with newly developed, highly pigmented Durst Tau RSC inks, and the printer produces outstanding print quality. Includes a new automatic maintenance feature to avoid downtime and reduce service costs. Automatic cleaning of the print heads is carried out contact-free by the integrated maintenance unit, for better and stable print quality.

Durst RSC is equipped with advanced Durst Workflow Label software and Variable Data Printing software to enable the customers to prepare fast the printing jobs for the demanding label market.

A new Ink Save Mode allows Tau RSC platform users to reduce ink costs at an average of 12% on a CMYK press. Durst Analytics software reports production data in detail for the operation performance.

Production capacity of 1,020 m²/hour is achievable with a printing speed of 52 m/m at full color including white. All options from the Tau 330 RSC can be fitted to the new model, which include the chill roller, variable data printing or the external jumbo winders. The machine can have up to 8 color stations (CMYK-W-OVG) and achieves up to 95% simulation of the Pantone color space. It can also be upgraded to run 80m/min production speed with all colors.

The Durst Tau 330 RSC E works as a stand-alone printer or as a hybrid solution with the addition of conventional finishing options. This gives the user unlimited flexibility in terms of materials and a broad range of applications.
