Durst Solves Waste And Digital Capacity Issues With Inkjet Label Production Press

John and Christian Galea, Wagner Prestige Labels.

The Durst Tau 330 RSC E is the beating heart of Australia based Wagner Prestige Labels’ one-stop solutions business, which has diversified into new areas and is also part of the JV Group that brings together label, printing and embroidery companies to provide customers with a complete promotional service.

Wagner’s choice of Durst’s RSC technology was driven by speed, quality and environmental considerations: ‘We decided to ramp up digital colour capacity to the highest we could, and the Durst Tau 330 RSC E came up trumps,’ said John Galea, Managing Director of Wagner Prestige Labels. ‘It has really proved itself, to the point that digital is now between 30 and 35% of our business. The quality of the labels is right up there with flexo and letterpress.

‘Another important benefit is that waste is greatly reduced, with the threaded metreage on the Durst Tau 330 RSC E even being able to be drawn back and printed. Waste is a big issue for label printers, especially with multiple versions, so anything we can do to reduce it is good for the environment.’

‘We do everything in-house, and, if a customer wants a fully-embellished label with embossing, foiling, spot varnishing and fancy die-cutting, we have the equipment to do it,’ said Galea. ‘You have to keep up with changes – change enables growth and diversity, but you also have to make sure the right job goes on the right machine. Before the investment in Durst’s RSC technology, we were falling short on digital capacity. Our customers – trade, print brokers and end-users – are tending to order shorter runs, more frequently, so we carefully researched all the available options. The Durst has proved to be the ideal choice.’

Helmuth Munter, Durst’s Segment Manager, Labels and Package Printing said, ‘The Durst Tau 330 RSC E was originally launched to bring affordable digital production to increasing numbers of small converters and sets the base for the future of industrial digital inkjet printing in the label industry. In line with our ‘We Keep You Printing’ strategy, it’s also proving to be a real attractive prospect for forward-thinking companies like Wagner Prestige Labels that need variable, versatile, adjustable and configurable digital printing systems to expand their business reach while enjoying other benefits such as waste reduction and a significant jump in production capacity.’
