Canada’s Design Label Systems Plans January 2016 Installation of Tau 330 UV Digital Label Press

Press release from the issuing company

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Design Label Systems, one of Canada’s leading integrated product ID and label solutions providers, is acquiring a new Durst Tau 330 UV Inkjet Digital Press.  Installation is scheduled for January 2016 at the company’s 25,000-square-foot facility outside Toronto.

President Zeb Faruqui said that after extensive research, Design Label Systems identified the seven-colour Tau 330 with an in-line laser finishing system as its machine of choice.  He cited significant operational savings as well as faster turnaround as the main reasons behind the company’s decision.  The company, Faruqui said, is looking forward to the Tau’s lower cost-per-print and better responsiveness for its client.  Nearly 40 percent of its jobs are below 7,000 feet, he noted.

“The decision was sealed after our staff attended LabelExpo in Brussels earlier this year and came back with a glowing recommendation that verified our preliminary research,” Faruqui said.  “And our experience with Durst has been great.  We’re looking forward to having the Tau on-site in January.”

Tau 330

The Tau 330 is designed for short- and medium-run narrow web applications, covering widths from 16.5-33.0 cm (6.5-13.0 in.) and running at print speeds up to 48m (157 ft.) per minute – output capacity can reach 950 sm (10,225 sq. ft.) per hour.  Sharp, precise print quality for today’s most demanding label and package printing applications is made possible by Durst’s proprietary UV inkjet print head technology.  This technology – featuring advanced drop-on-demand, variable drop size, and gray scale capabilities – delivers a print resolution of 720x1,260 dpi, which generates highly defined texts and intricate details in all graphics and images.

The Tau 330 LFS version features a new in?line digital laser finishing system by the expert die cutting company Spartanics.  Its powerful integrated laser enables fully automatic job changeovers without interrupting production.  The highly flexible Tau 330 can be integrated with any third-party finishing system – conventional or digital – making it one of the most versatile solutions on the market.  It requires no in-line priming to handle industry-standard substrates, and is compatible with a wide range of specialty films and foils.
