Durst Digital Days attracts record attendees.

Position:INDUSTRY News

Positive customer feedback will help inkjet label press manufacturer Durst shape its thinking for future events following record attendance at the "inspiring and engaging" Digital Days at the company's global headquarters in Brixen, Northern Italy. The event concluded on February 9.

Thee guest speakers at the latest edition of the the international open house included Rick Hulme from Sunjet, who discussed inkjet ink development for labels, and Package Printing and Color Alliance's Rainer Esters, who gave an overview of Durst's Web2Print Solution. Bettina Offenegger also detailed Durst's Symphony Workflow Solution, while Manuel Gruber focused on Durst Label Global Service.

Customer experiences took center stage, too, with David Webster, The Label Makers UK managing director, speaking about the Tau 330 and the Tau 330 RSC beta test, while Ramon Krieg, technical production manager at BMZ in Switzerland, explained how its Tau 330 with Low Migration Ink was building important new business opportunities.

"Durst has been an incredibly supportive partner with fantastic technology, which is why I was only more than happy to come along and play an important role with a presentation on each of the three Digital Days," says Webster. "Installing the Tau 330 RSC has been another huge step for us. The Durst Tau 330 RSC prints at phenomenal speed and is far more cost-effective for us because it is using less ink but still maintaining the incredible print quality. The future of most label production will be inkjet."

"Digital is now the clear preferred choice for us for smaller runs," says Krieg. "I believe that inkjet is the future, particularly now that our Durst Tau 330 is so cost-effective to run because there is no preparation time needed when you change jobs. And more of our work is increasingly short run."
