Durst equipped the Rho 500R with the latest iteration of the Quadro 30D Array print head technology. The number of nozzles per color is doubled to 2,048, ink temperature is accurately regulated at the nozzle and a Point Drop Setting ink regulation system is incorporated – to deliver the highest image quality at the highest speed, Durst said.
High-performance carriage and linear motor drive systems, precision Push Media transport mechanisms, built-in laser media tracking sensors, Durst’s intelligent dither technology, a range of user-settable parameters and a variety of other technologies combine to make the Rho 500R one of the most efficient, economical large-format imagers ever made, Durst said. The printer is designed to operate unattended, uses less ink than other comparable superwide platforms, and minimizes operational costs due to its high productivity and efficient workflow, Drst said.
Durst also introduced a faster version of its Rho 800 Presto Large-Format UV Inkjet Printer with continuous board printing, equipped with the Quadro 30D Array print head technology to offer blazing speed and high efficiency while delivering exceptional image quality, the Company said.
Compared to its previous design, Durst’s Quadro 30D Array print head technology doubles the number of nozzles per color to 2,048. In addition, ink temperature is accurately regulated at the nozzle, and a Point Drop Setting ink regulation system is incorporated to deliver the highest image quality at the highest speed, Durst said. Together, these technologies raise print output capabilities by about 80 percent, Durst said.
Durst also introduced the Rho 1000 UV inkjet printer, also equipped with the Quadro 30D Array print head, as well as offering other workflow enhancements. In addition to stand-alone digital applications, the capabilities of the Rho 1000 make it highly suitable for integration into screen and offset printing workflows, in which its high-speed, full-color printing becomes one step in the process, Durst said.
Because workflow efficiency also is critical to successful printing, the Rho 1000 features an intuitive user-interface software that makes it easy to set and store job-specific parameters. The printer requires very little set-up time and no masking. And it can operate in a continuous-feed workflow eliminating load/unload delays between sheets – similar to screen or offset printing methods and other systems designed for optimal integration and productivity. The Rho 1000 is capable of printing more than 200 4-by-8-foot sheets or boards per hour, the company said
