Durst has launched what looks to be a very interesting new a new wide format printing platform with the P5 250 HS which is targeted towards high volume industrial production.
The company says this is the flagship model in what will eventually become the P5 series and, according to Durst Group chief executive Christoph Gamper, the P5 platform, including workflow software and advanced service tools, represents Durst’s key strategy to further invest into large format printing technology.
“We believe that there is a lot to explore in this market space and the P5 250 HS is our first statement,” says Gamper. “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 the innovation in the large format market.”
Durst says that 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.
The company says it has taken industrial design 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.
The company says that when compared to the 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.
