Tau 330E: The Entry Level Stand Alone Solution


  • Tau 330E

    Tau 330E is a cost effective stand alone UV inkjet label press for small and medium size companies active in the label printing business. The single pass UV inkjet label press is supplied with the new highly pigmented UV inks, which with a lower load of ink will reach high quality print results, thus substantially reducing the overall ink consumption.

    The Tau 330E can be configured for a print width of 8" or 13" and 4 (CMYK) or 5 colors (CMYK + W). The print speed can reach up to 48 linear meters (157 ft.) per minute and the user can choose among two print resolutions: the standard resolution of 720 x 360 dpi and the HD print resolution of 720 x 1260 dpi. The Tau 330E has been designed with specific care to investment and production costs, without affecting productivity and print quality. For the pre-press stage, Tau 330E will be configured with its new Durst Imaging Engine. That is why the Tau 330E is the ideal entry level solution into industrial digital printing and will prove to be successful thanks to its excellent TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

Choice of Tau Inks

For the various fields of application, Tau 330 features three ink systems that enable the machine to reach a silk screen and flexo print quality, respecting the latest low migration guidelines.

Durst Tau 330 Inks: Standard, Low Migration & High Pigment Inks

  • Tau UV high performance inks are characterized by their wide color space. This enables 70% of the Pantone colors to be covered using 4 process colors and over 90% using 6 process colors. In single pass mode, also the Tau's high opacity white option guarantees optimal results. Tau UV inks are light-proof, scratch and chemical resistant. This makes them especially suitable for out-door applications, as well as industrial and safety signage applications.

  • For printing primary food packaging, the Tau 330 can be equipped with the 2nd generation of Tau Low Migration Inks by SUNJET. The first generation has already been used by 20% of Tau customers thus opening up new business opportunities. The current ink formulation and the Tau Low Migration Ink substrates comply with the guidelines of the European Printing Ink Association (EuPIA) , Nestle, and the Swiss Ordinance on Materials & Articles.

  • For the new and cost effective Tau 330E, Durst has furthermore developed a new highly pigmented ink set, which will permit an ink savings of up to 25%. This ink laydown reduction also creates more of a matte flexo look and feel.
