STIXO-Signage Supplies

Durst revealed two new printers at ISA International Sign Expo (24-26 April in Orlando). The Durst Rho P10 HS Series and the Durst Rho 312R roll to roll printer.


The new Rho P10 HS Series feature Durst’s Quadro Array 10M printheads with double the number nozzles. They also have LED Pin curing in combination with conventional UV drying. The Pin curing helps to make the faster speed possible by sealing the drops of inks, keeping the quality perfect, whilst the UV curing finalises the drying process.

The P10 Series has been setting a new quality standard for industrial level inkjet printing when it was launched two years ago. That same quality, with a resolution of up to 1000 dpi, is now available from a printer that is capable of printing up to
400 m²/h.

As with all the latest Durst Inkjet printers, the new P10 200/250 HS are the most productive printers in their class. A true hybrid, they will print on both rigid and roll media equally fast and the media change from one to the other is both quick and simple. They also provide unrivalled versatility thanks to their ability to print on the widest range of media including foam board, metal, acrylics and PVC and roll media such as clear film and other backlit material, textiles and vinyls.

The stunning ‘fine art’ print quality of both the existing and new P10 printers provides a level of quality that will allow for close up viewing of a wide range of advertising and corporate promotional material. The very fine tones and the option of additional light colours (light cyan and light magenta) offer perfect colour reproduction. Typically, they are ideal for indoor and outdoor signage, POP material, small to medium sized packaging and backlit luxury goods.

The New P10 200/250 HS can also boast Durst’s Variodrop technology. Not only does this help with the increased productivity but also provides improved image quality which includes better colour gamut and less banding. Particularly at the highest production speeds, solid areas of colour are free of banding whilst offering bright vibrant colours.

The new P10 200/250 HS is another example of Durst’s technology driven productivity. That is why Durst is the industrial inkjet specialist.


The Rho 312R is the most productive 3.2 m roll to roll printer in its class. It also offers a new quality standard for industrial backlit or Fine Art printing. The Rho 312R features Durst’s Quadro Array 12M printheads with Variodrop technology and the12 picolitre drop size enables excellent image quality with up to 900 dpi, whilst the Variodrop technology is responsible for the printer’s high productivity. It is capable of printing up to 240 m²/hour in high speed mode and up to 70 m² in 4 pass mode (or 122 m²/h in POP mode). Productivity is further enhanced by the option of being able to print two 1.6 m rolls of media at the same time with individual print queues.

With a print system of over 24,000 nozzles, there is no compromise between productivity and speed, whilst the high pigmentation reduces ink consumption and therefore provides a low cost per m² and a very competitive ROI. The Variodrop technology enhances the greyscale technology by increasing productivity and improved image quality, also eliminating the inherent problems that can occur with greyscale printing.

Other features include 6 colour printing and different ink options, unattended printing with large rolls, options of reverse side printing and integrated border cutting. Durst roll ink is environmentally friendly. The inks are completely VOC free and accredited with the stringent Nordic Swan environmental certification.

For digital or offset printers who wish to enter new large format markets or enhance their existing portfolio, the Rho 312R is the most flexible and productive printer available. It will provide the ideal solution for anything from high quality backlits and Fine Art prints to POP, banners, and even wallpaper and façade decoration, profitably.
