Durst launches P5 next-generation technology platform
Durst has launched a new printing platform, the P5 series, the first of which is the large format printing flagship, P5 250 HS, available from April onwards.
The P5 250 HS is targeted towards high volume industrial production, as well as one-offs in offset quality. P5 relates to five core features at the heart of this technology, namely, productivity, reliability, workflow, versatility and print quality.
The P5 technology consists of a series of new generation printers along with new, in-house developed software and workflow solutions. The family also has state of the art, touch operation based user interfaces and leading-edge remote service capabilities. Everything is aimed and streamlined to maximise the performance and up-time of the printing family, along with unparalleled flexibility in terms of media and job handling.
Durst’s iconic industrial design, which was originally developed by the famous Ottl Eicher, has gone a further step with the P5. A design studio from Munich canvassed opinions from many customers and operators with a view to integrating their wishes into a new concept. This has been achieved for the P5 – and feedback will be incorporated into many Durst product lines in the future.
When compared to the industry benchmark, Durst P10 250 HS, the new P5 is 70 percent more productive. Featuring latest MEMS nozzle plates powered by Durst proprietary data-path and electronics, the result is a high-speed printing system with ultra precise drop placement and industrial level reliability.
Durst P5 technology features print volume capability in two-pass mode up to 240 sqm/h and high resolution modes of 1200 dpi, offset printing quality with a drop-size of 5 pcl, a Durst Analytics information platform for pre-emptive maintenance and detailed machine and consumption data and Durst Workflow, which provides an in-house developed suite of applications custom tailored for Durst printers and with unique features, beyond ripping.
Christoph Gamper, Chief Executive of the 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.”
