While launching the new Tau 330 UV Inkjet Label Press at the upcoming Labelexpo in Chicago, Durst also announces the first solvent-free metallic silver UV ink for use in a wide range of digital label & package printing decoration applications.
The newly designed metallic silver UV ink can of course be used with the new Tau 330, but also with previous Tau models such as the Tau 150-8C, offering excellent print quality on a selected range of substrates, with reliable and consistent print performance, good adhesion, and durability.
The new solvent free UV metallic silver ink in combination with the Tau UV inkjet label presses allows printing speeds between 20-30 linear meters (65-95 feet) per minute that go well beyond current available and established digital printing systems.
Conventional methods of printing metallic silver have their own strengths, but none of them is really suited to the needs of short run and on-demand printing. Brand owners need to print shorter runs every year, and demand therefore a solution able to do this economically, while providing most capabilities of traditional printing technology.
The arrival of Durst’s solvent-free digital metallic UV inkjet technology makes digital metallic printing & decoration now even economically feasible for short & medium runs, offering converters to produce attractive and creative labels & packaging while addressing the need for customized, personalized printing and respecting at the same time ecological aspects.
