  1. Digital Printing technology and new alternatives in label printing Mike Englander Durst Phototechnik AG

  2. Durst Phototechnik AG The Industrial Inkjet Specialist Durst Tau 330 High Speed UV Inkjet Label Press Digital UV Inkjet - Narrow Web Application

  3. The main alternatives • Electro-Ink from HP Indigo • Thin film laminationprocess bonded to the substrate in ‘one shot’ • Powder toner xerography from Xeikon • Toner particles are melted by heat and fused to the substrate • Ink jet from a selection of companies including Durst • creates a digital image by propelling droplets of ink onto the substrate

  4. Needs of the label converter from digital • Quality - comparable to conventional • Speed - comparable to conventional • Material flexibility - comparable to conventional • Cost – as long a digital run as possible versus conventional total print cost

  5. Ink Jet • For high quality print, you need a combined system incorporating the best of: • Print Head • Ink • Substrate • Web transport • software

  6. Ink Jet – Evolution & Innovation Digital Printing Technologies for Narrow Web Electro Photo liquid & dry toner Inkjet Continuous Inkjet DOD Inkjet Piezo Inkjet Thermo Inkjet SOL WB Grayscale Inkjet Binary WB UV WB UV

  7. Ink Jet – Evolution & Innovation ●Printing Resolution ● Stitch Handling ● Ink Formulation ● Web Transport Design Inkjet 2006 300 dpi Inkjet 2007 360 dpi Inkjet 2011 720 x 360 dpi Original

  8. Ink Jet - Head Ink Jet Print Heads must be: - scalable for high speeds, - scalable print width, - jet a high opacity white ink - jet new (additional) fluids

  9. Ink Jet - Ink Must have characteristics such as: - Ink properties to work with surface tension of most substrates • Cover a wide color gamut to match high % of Pantone range • Print high opacity white • Have high chemical & scratch resistance • Have high degree of light fastness

  10. Ink Jet - Software Must have characteristics such as: • Highly accurate press linearization • Ink limiting function to reduce costs • Accurate substrate profiling • High speed ripping & dithering • Accurate color management

  11. Result – Speed (m/min)

  12. Result - Cost

  13. Result - Cost Tau 330 cost cross-over: 62,000 labels or 3,150 lin. Meters on 33 cm web width Calculation base => label size 10x15 cm in CMYK, 69 €/liter Ink, 48 lm/min Incl. machine depreciation + operator costs + Maintenance

  14. Result - Quality See samples
