Wide format industrial printers

Durst Rho 2500

Durst, a manufacturer of digital printing and production technologies, launched the new Rho 2500 Series and the Durst P5 350 printer in North America for the first time at its stand 7816 during Printing United in Dallas, Texas, from 23-25 October 2019.

An evolution of the Rho 1300 Series, the newly designed Rho 2500 is a modular, versatile industrial production printer available in three different versions with upgrades possible at any time. All the printers are equipped with Durst Workflow Print, the new production software, and the monitoring tool, Durst Analytics. The machine was showcased alongside the Durst P5 350.

The Rho 2500’s new 8pl printheads with variodrop printing technology enable higher resolution of 1000 x 800 dpi, finer printing quality and sharpness with productivity up to 1,200 square meters an hour. Other possibilities are for volume production, high speed and a Smart 4 printing mode for the 6-color version. Starting with six head rows for the S model, the next level of the Rho 2500 M comprises eight head rows and the Rho 2500 L has 10 head rows, all of which can have the optional white color. Other options include a stacker for ¾ or full automation, a dual track printing mode, a safe ink refill identification system and camera control on the outside of the printer while operating the monitor screen.

Tim Saur, managing director of Durst North America, said, “The P5 is an outstanding new technology platform while the launch of the Rho 2500 industrial production printer provides a modular system that can be upgraded at any time. All of our machines benefit from the comprehensive Durst software solutions to maximize the potential of process automation and digitization.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
