The new printer class in large format printing

With the Rho WT 250 HS, Durst is launching a new class of printer to large format printing. Based on Durst Water Technology, the flatbed printing system achieves the very best optical and haptic offset print quality on a range of coated and uncoated paper surfaces for POP/POS materials such as corrugated displays and posters. The Durst Rho WT inks are odorless and require no health and safety registration. As a result, the new Rho WT 250 HS is especially suitable for sustainable advertising media at the POS and in indoor areas.

Rhotex 500

The first industrial 5-meter printing system for seamless soft signage production

The Rhotex 500 guides Durst Water Technology “seamlessly” into new areas of application. With an unparalleled printing width of 5 meters, the Rhotex 500 allows seamless, extra-wide soft signage and true large-format products at the POS, at trade fairs, in arenas, event venues and public spaces. Soft signage is already the advertising medium of choice, since it is easy to fold, transport, attach, wash, and even recycle. Printing uses water-based dispersion inks and uncoated and coated polyester materials in photo-realistic print quality, brilliant colors and high color fidelities.

For efficient and economic textile production

With the presentation of the Alpha 190, Durst is addressing the trend towards digital textile printing systems. While the Rhotex series serves the growing soft signage market, the Alpha series offers industrial production systems for traditional textile applications in the fields of home textiles, clothing and upholstery coverings. There are no limits in terms of which textile materials can be used, which means that Durst Water Technology-based reactive, acid and dispersion inks are available for cotton, silk and all other conceivable textile materials. Durst offers the technological convergence towards large format printing with the newly developed one-step pigment inks and a fully automatic pretreatment unit which offers a pathway into traditional textile production, even for industry newcomers. Various types of fiber such as cotton and polyester can be printed with this ink system.
