The arrival of Durst technology at São Paulo-based Megalabel allows cost-effective, industrial scale production at very high quality and speed and will fill the gap between flexo and short-run digital production
Megalabel has invested in a Durst Tau 330 RSC E single-pass digital inkjet label press. Owner Marcio Romano said, ‘Durst Tau 330 RSC E puts us in a different position in the market in terms of production technology,’ said Romano. ‘In our premises, we have the three options available today for printing: flexography, digital printing for short runs, and Durst digital printing at an industrial level of very high quality.’
Among the highlights of the Tau 330 RSC E, Romano reinforces high print resolution and speed. When Megalabel was founded 12 years ago, Romano, had a very clear focus in mind: offer very high quality to produce labels in short runs for the market. Today, the company has a consolidated name in the segment, producing short and large production runs. ‘For this, we invested in flexographic technology and also in digital printing,’ he said.
However, the other digital technology in use at Megalabel was ‘high cost’ when larger volumes on an industrial scale were needed. ‘It was to cover this gap between flexography and digital printing in short runs that we invested in the technology of the Durst Tau 330 RSC E,’ said Romano.
With support for widths up to 330mm, the Tau 330 RSC E prints at 52 linear metres and with the optional speed upgrade up to 80 linear metres/min. This corresponds to a production capacity of 1485 square metres/hour at a print resolution of 1200 × 1200dpi. It can produce in up to 8 colours (CMYK, plus White, Violet, Orange and Green), thus covering almost 95% of Pantone colours at a lower cost.
Helmuth Munter, Label and Flexible Packaging Segment Manager for Durst Group said, ‘The Durst Tau RSC E brings affordable, industrial scale digital production to increasing numbers of forward-thinking companies such as Megalabel.’
