Durst unveiled the Tau 330 RSC at Labelexpo 2017 in Brussels

Huge interest was created when Durst unveiled the Tau 330 RSC at Labelexpo 2017 in Brussels. Visitors and competitors were surprised by what Durst’s RSC technology promised in terms of print quality and productivity performance, with 1200x1200-dpi resolution and 80 linear metres printing speed at full colour.

Nine months later and after a successful beta-test of this new and groundbreaking printing technology, Durst started delivery of the first Tau 330 RSC presses. Since then, increasing numbers of small, medium and large-sized label converter have opted for the new benchmark platform in UV inkjet, a Durst Tau 330 RSC, the more economical Tau 330 RSC E or the new Tau RSCi.

Since the middle of this year, Durst has continued installations with the first Tau RSCi 330/ 420/ 510 label presses, which form the latest press portfolio expansion of Durst’s Tau RSC platform.

Helmuth Munter, segment manager, label and flexible packaging, Durst, said, “Introduced two years ago, the Tau 330 RSC and Tau 330 RSC E set a new benchmark in label printing. Now with 100 installations around the world we feel honoured by the trust and confidence in Durst of our satisfied Tau RSC users. We are confident — and continuous positive customer feedback backs this - that our updated Tau RSC platform will continue to set the benchmark for the future of industrial digital inkjet printing in the label and packaging industry.”
