Durst Announces Launch Of P5

Durst announces launch of P5
Durst has launched the new P5 series, a new printing platform. The first member of the family is the large format printing flagship, the P5 250 HS.

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: productivity, reliability, workflow, versatility and print quality.

The P5 technology consists of a series of new generation printers along with newly, 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 performance and uptime of the printing family, along with unparalleled flexibility in 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% 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 240sqm/h and high resolution modes of 1200dpi.
• Offset printing quality with a drop-size of 5pcl.
• Durst Analytics information platform for pre-emptive maintenance and detailed machine and consumption data to guarantee maximum uptime.
• 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 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 innovation in the large format market.’
