Durst launches the new P5 350 High Speed printing system

Manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, Durst, has unveiled a legion of innovations on its journey to becoming a complete solutions provider in line with its “Pixel to Output” strategy. Central is the P5 350 High Speed printer combined with the “Automat,” a new complete automation system, with enhanced software, a full LED ink portfolio and partnerships.

The P5 350 HS, the newest family member from the P5 technology platform, was launched during the virtual “Firework of Innovations” along with the Durst Automat. This fully automated inline solution makes production processes versatile and efficient for customers. In addition, the Durst Workflow is available for non-Durst printers, following the announcement of a partnership with PrintFactory. The superior API software makes for easy management of mixed print environments. In line with its strategy, Durst has expanded its offer with Workflow, Analytics, automation and ink solutions for printers to deliver complete solutions from Pixel to Output.

The Durst P5 350 HS can print at over 600 sqm per hour, twice the speed of the Durst P5 350 standard model, therefore being the most productive hybrid printer in the market. With the same unique features that made the P5 350 successful, such as the multiroll and the multitrack six option, the new model retains the level of high versatility. It can be configured with up to nine colour channels, including light colours and white, and varnish for special multilayer printing applications such as “Day&Night,” “In&Out,” and up to 12 layers hapt-printing.

The versatility is also in combination with Durst Automat, the new fully automated board feeding and stacking system, which manages up to two lanes, with different board sizes up to 3.5 m width (137.8 inch) and 2.2 m (86.6 inch) length and has a loading capacity of 90 cm (35.5 inch).

Thanks to its sliding registration tables, comfortable access to the roll tool enable a fast material change managed by one single operator.

Installations will begin from the end of Q1 in 2021. Durst Workflow is a browser-based data management handling system that includes pre-press functionality as well as the ripping. The proven workflow for PDF toolbox, colour management and rip engine makes for the highest quality and ink cost optimisation.

They also announced the introduction of the new POP Flexible LED Ink, with impressive colour, an unmatched combination of flexibility, stackability and adhesion. It is a best-in-class hybrid ink suitable for a wide variety of roll-to-roll and board media.

Durst has been building its workflow offerings in line with its end-to-end thinking for 360-degree business solutions aimed at the Smart Factory concept to streamline production and processes. Durst Smart Shop, Workflow, Analytics, Lift ERP – and now Durst Automat – are pushing the boundaries of automation and innovation and are backed by consultancy and seamless integration provided through Durst Professional Services.

Christian Harder, Durst Group’s Global Sales Director, Graphics Segment, said: “The launch of our latest family Durst P5 member, the P5 350 HS, is an important statement of our firm commitment to continue to be at the forefront of innovation in the large format market. It’s among a raft of innovations that we have unveiled to the market as part of our Pixel to Output strategy. Customers are demanding all-in-one solutions, which we provide as we move towards becoming a complete solution provider. In an integrated world, printers need to change as well. And we’ll help them on that journey through hardware, software, inks and collaborations.”

Christoph Gamper, Durst Group CEO and Co-Owner said: “We’re looking forward to the future. I am confident that in 2021 the economy will recover and, in some fields, be even stronger than before. So we will continue what we do best: innovating with passion. In 2019, we launched the P5 platform, and we now have more than 100 systems around the globe. This is a great achievement, so a big thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of our customers, partners and our great Durst team members across the world.”
