Omnilabel adds second Durst inkjet label press

Durst has announced that Netherlands-based Omnilabel has invested in a new digital UV Inkjet label press, the Tau 330. In 2010, Omnilabel was the first customer to install the Tau 150 Label Printer, in order to open up new market potential with digital label production. During the past four years, Omnilabel has successfully developed the digital label business, resulting in a 50% turnover increase with the Tau 150.

Due to the increasing demand of digitally printed label jobs, an expansion of the production capacity has now become necessary. Omnilabel has once again opted for Durst, investing in the Tau 330, which features a range of applications and a print quality of 1260 dpi. Durst’s operational- and service competence, the company says, were also crucial factors for Omnilabel, to decide against some of the competitors lower-priced products.

“The new Tau 330 provides the means for us, to further develop our core competence towards digital production,” says Michiel Smudde, managing director at Omnilabel. “In addition to the excellent print quality, the Tau 330 is equipped with a number of interesting features, such as the integrated chill roller for processing thin, heat-sensitive materials. Additionally, Durst provides Low Migration UV inks, which will help us to develop new business areas for our company in future.”

The Tau 330 is equipped with Xaar 1001 Single-Pass Printheads and has a maximum print width of 330 mm with a maximum print speed of 48 running meters per minute. This allows a production capacity of 950 sqm. The standard ink configuration of CMYK can be upgraded on-demand with White and two additional process colors such as Orange and Violet, which are indispensable for label applications with a pantone color space. Even the standard version of the Tau 330 comes with comprehensive RIP software with integrated substrate- and color management options.

With the new high definition print mode, the Tau 330 now achieves a resolution of 720 x 1260 dpi, which improves the print quality and generates highly defined texts and intricate details in all graphics and images. In order to ensure highest productivity with an entirely digital end-to-end workflow, the Tau 330 LFS version now features a new in-line digital laser finishing system by laser diecutting specialist Spartanics. The integrated, powerful 1000-Watt laser enables fully automatic job changeovers, while continuing production without interruptions.

Another feature of the Tau 330 is its compatibility with SUNJET’s new Tau Low Migration Inks for primary food packaging. The substrates of the Tau Low Migration Inks comply with all guidelines of the European Printing Ink Association (EUPIA), the Swiss Ordnance for Materials and the Nestlé Packaging Inks Specifications. This ink expands the production range of the Durst Tau 330 to include self-supported foils, such as blister packaging, yogurt lids and many other applications. Additionally, the integrated inert gas system reduces typical odors of UV inkjet printers to meet the requirements of the food- and pharmaceutical industry for low-odor print production.
