Durst has introduced the new Rho 900 Large-Format UV Inkjet Printer, a 98-inch-wide printing platform that combines more efficient automated media handling and "process color additions" with high-speed printing capabilities to deliver far greater productivity and a wider color gamut.
The new Rho 900 is equipped with Durst's Quadro 30D Array print head technology to deliver high speed, improved efficiency and exceptional image quality. Its media handling incorporates an auto-feed table with belts, sheet feed gate with guides for parallel board printing, and automatic two-point pin registration system to ensure accurate front-to-back registration.
The Rho 900's process color additions are printed in the same mode as its CMYK process colors. No special file preparation is necessary. These additional colors can be printed?even with white ink or light colors--with no loss in output speed. This enables much smoother color gradients and more even solids at production-level output speeds.
Top speed of the six-color Rho 900 is up to 216 boards (125x80cm) per hour. The user can incorporate the process color additions with no loss of print speed.
"The Rho 900 also can print white, varnish or light colors along with the new additional process colors to expand the possibilities of print jobs and applications," said Michael Lackner, marketing manager of Durst.
