A New Era in Large Format Printing
The Durst Water Technology is a long-term strategy to offer digital printer systems with aqueous inks as an alternative to UV- and solvent-based inks/printer systems. New directives such as the European REACH regulation and positive lists for applied chemicals demand new and ´green` solutions – especially if large-format printing is to access further market potential for the interior- and packaging industry and at the point of sale.
With the Rho WT 250 HS, Durst has specially developed a new machine category that can print in itho-like print quality, odorless and environment friendly on a large variety of rigid and flexible large format media, using Functional Aqueous Inks. With its Durst Water Technology, Durst has already conducted pioneering work for the soft signage sector and has promoted ´green` solutions at the point-of-sale with the Rhotex Textile Printer Systems and the application of textiles as an advertising- and informational media. For its innovative drive, Durst received an award in the category ´Best Wide Format Textile Printer High Production`, from the European Digital Press Association (EDP).
