Durst, once again a Platinum Sponsor of SGIA, will host a press conference to explain the capabilities of the Rho 1312 and Rhotex HS. This event begins at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22, in Room N117 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Durst executives will be on hand to answer questions and discuss new business growth opportunities.

 

Rho 1312
The 98-inch (250 cm) Rho 1312, which prints up to 6,600 s.f./hr., offers improved image quality and a higher gloss finish, increased reliability during printing, and unparalleled media handling flexibility, particularly with difficult and heat-sensitive media. Durst’s Quadro Array print head technology, applying very small droplets of only 12 picolitres, enables a very high printing speed without compromising image quality.

The 1312 also incorporates “Gradual Flow Printing” – media transportation advances such as a stronger vacuum, a wider transport belt and improved media registration – which provides higher reliability during printing and a better performance with difficult media, including corrugated. The overall result is smoother tones over large areas and a high gloss finish, even at the highest speeds.

Rhotex HS
The Rhotex HS achieves production speeds of more than 4,300 s.f./hr. (400 m²/hr.), making it the fastest digital soft signage printer on the market. Its image resolution of 1,200 dpi produces unrivaled print quality. The Rhotex HS is equipped with Durst´s patented QuadroZ Print Head Technology, which is also utilized in the Durst Kappa series of high-performance digital printers developed for the clothing and home textiles sector.

 

The print width of the130-inch (330 cm) Rhotex HS and its use of eco-friendly, water-based dispersion inks – which are odorless and free of volatile organic compounds (VOC) – mean it is suitable for a range of soft-signage applications such as banners, displays, wall decorations, signage, parasols, flags, backdrops and outdoor advertisements. The productivity of the Rhotex HS enables the user to quickly and efficiently react to customer requirements and to achieve profitable production independent of print run size.
