Durst has launched a new printing platform – the P5 series.
The first member of the family, the large format printing flagship P5 250 HS, will ship from April. Aimed at high volume industrial production, the printer also targets one-offs in offset quality. P5 relates to five core features at the heart of this technology: productivity, reliability, workflow, versatility and print quality.
Christoph Gamper, chief executive of Durst Group, said: “The new P5 platform, including workflow software and advanced service tools, represents our key strategy to further invest into large format printing technology and further afield. We believe that there is a lot to explore in this market space and the P5 250 HS is our first statement. In an integrated world, printers need to change as well. With the P5 family we provide tools for change and profit – and our firm commitment to continue to lead the innovation in the large format market.
The P5 technology consists of a series of new generation printers along with new in-house developed software and workflow solutions. It also offers touch operation based user-interfaces and remote service capabilities.
The company claims a 70 per cent increase in productivity for the P5 over its predecessor, the Durst P10 250 HS. The P5 features the latest MEMS nozzle plates powered by Durst proprietary data-path and electronics. Durst says this results in a high-speed printing system with ultra-precise drop placement and industrial level reliability.
Durst lists the P5 technology features:
Print volume capability in two-pass mode up to 240 sqm/hr and high resolution modes of 1200 dpi
Offset printing quality with a drop-size of five pcl
Durst Analytics information platform for pre-emptive maintenance and detailed machine and consumption data to guarantee maximum uptime
Durst Workflow, which provides an in-house developed suite of applications custom tailored for Durst printers and with unique features – beyond ripping.
