Label Solutions of Garland, Texas has partnered with Durst to become the first in the state to add 1200dpi UV inkjet digital printing technology to its production portfolio, following installation of a Tau 330 RSC E.

Specifically, the Durst Tau 330 RSC E will improve production versatility, provide faster order turnarounds, and give Label Solutions’ customers ‘the best inkjet label quality available today’.

Chris Merlick, founder and CEO of Label Solutions, said, ‘We tested a lot of files on a lot of materials and decided that with the Durst Tau RSC E, we are able to print on a wide range of substrates at very high quality, while improving production costs on short/medium runs.

‘We were farming out our digital print offerings to external suppliers before, and we knew we wanted UV inkjet when we brought our digital book of business internally. It was all about becoming more efficient. The RSC print quality means that we can offer more sophisticated premium work, particularly being easier to hit brand colours with the expanded colour gamut of the Durst RSC.’

Justin Wright, partner and executive vice president at Label Solutions, commented, ‘With an expanded gamut colour space, we are able to accurately match custom corporate colours within a 2 delta without needing to utilise a print station on our finishing equipment. We wanted a differentiator in our printing operation. We found it with Durst. We’re very impressed with the possibilities the Durst RSC printer presents to our customers.’

Steve Lynn, director, label and packaging, Durst North America, said, ‘With a focus on speciality custom solutions and the addition of a Durst Tau RSC E, Label Solutions truly stands apart as a premier provider of labels and packaging solutions.’
