The Durst Rhotex 320, the company’s new “industrial” inkjet printer for the soft signage markets will make its North American debut at SGIA. Developed to address the growing popularity of lighter-weight, easier-to-install, higher-margin, reusable and “green” media options, the 10.5-foot-wide Rhotex 320 utilizes environmentally benign water-based dye inks and on-board hot-air dryers on an advanced printing platform with Quadro Array 30D AQ print heads (designed specifically for Rhotex 320 water-based inks) to deliver POP-quality output at up to 775 sqft/hr.
The six-color printer—CMYK + Lc, Lm, Lk (gray), spot colors—features an inline ink dryer positioned ahead of the take-up roll to prevent smudging and sticking. An automated Capping Station covers all print heads automatically when the sled is in “park” position to eliminate evaporation of the printer’s water-based inks. An Integrated Ink Absorbing System keeps inks from penetrating through the media.
Along with Durst’s workflow software, advanced feed/take-up systems and other high-tech capabilities, it features all the capabilities—efficient workflow software, Quadro Array 30D AQ print head technology, linear magnetic drive system, sophisticated media feed/take-up systems—found on the all latest Durst Rho printers.
