Durst Unveils Rhotex 320
Durst has introduced what it refers to as "the world’s first industrial inkjet printer for the textile/soft signage markets." Designed to handle light-weight media amid the growing demand for more environmentally progressive large-format production, the new 10.5-foot-wide Rhotex 320 uses water-based dye inks and on-board hot-air dryers on a printing platform that can produce "POP-quality" output at up to 775 square feet per hour.
Scheduled for commercial release in the fourth quarter of 2010, the Rhotex 320 is built around Quadro Array print-head technology, as well as a linear magnetic drive system. The 6-colour printer – CMYK + Lc, Lm – includes an automated Capping Station that automatically covers all print-heads when the sled is in "park position" to eliminate evaporation of the printer’s water-based inks.
Durst also released a new 80-inch-wide UV inkjet device, Rho 750, for UV-based printing at output speeds of up to 1,930 square feet per hour. The Rho 750 is available in three models: Basic, Presto and Rapid. Both the Basic and Presto models are upgradeable, while the machines are available with an optional corrugated printing system for material handling.
