'Pharmaceuticals, beauty & cosmetics, wine labels – these are markets we could not have competed in'

MISSISSAUGA,Ont. – Canada’s DesignLabel Systems, an integrated product ID and label solutions provider with regional dominance and national reach in the pressure-sensitive label industry, is reporting a positive impact on its business after acquiring a Durst Tau 330 digital UV label press. 

After extensive research, DLSmanagers identified the 7-color Tau 330 with inline SMAG finishing system as their machine of choice, citing significant anticipated savings as well as faster turnaround.  In its first six months, DLS Vice President Imran Faruqui said, “The Tau has already drastically reduced time spent on prepress tasks.  It creates highly accurate proofs and provides tremendous ink laydown, which has allowed us to get into more demanding markets.”

DLS has been using the Tau 330 primarily for shorter run, very high quality projects, said DLS Marketing & Sales Director Adam Faruqui.  “Pharmaceuticals, beauty & cosmetics, wine labels – these are markets we could not have competed in with traditional printing,” he said.  “Digital isperfect for them.  And it has already paid off.”

Tau 330

Thehighly 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 andfoils.  Altogether, the capabilities of the Tau 330 translate into remarkable flexibility and productivity for a wide variety of label and specialty packaging jobs.

The Tau330 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.
