With the new series of UV inkjet presses, Fuji Xerox enters the digital label printing business in the region.
Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific Pte Ltd. announces that it is entering the growing digital label printing business by expanding its suite of product offerings with UV digital inkjet label presses in the Durst Tau 330 series.
With the move, the company aims to meet customers’ increasing demand to convert time-consuming print jobs run on conventional presses into profitable print jobs.
Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific has an exclusive distributorship with Durst in Australia, New Zealand and China, including Taiwan and Hong Kong. It has non-exclusive distributorship in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Myanmar and Cambodia.
The Durst Tau 330 UV digital inkjet printer prints images on the substrate by exposing its ink to UV light, which dries the ink almost immediately. This allows it to print directly onto various substrates quickly, including heat-sensitive films and labels. As the UV ink dries faster than solvent ink, the digital UV inkjet technology built into the system meets the need for efficient printing.
The Tau 330 series utilises single-pass UV inkjet technology with dual printhead architecture. It prints in full color at a high speed of 37 linear meters per minute while printing in the highest print resolution in UV inkjet label printer class of 1,260 dots per inch, in high definition mode.
“This partnership between Durst and Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific is a perfect fit for two market leaders,” said Helmuth Munter, segment manager, Labels and Package Printing, Durst. “Fuji Xerox is a leading company in the Document Services and Communications field and Durst is a leading manufacturer of professional digital imaging systems. Together, we aim to expand our market in Asia Pacific through the vast network of Fuji Xerox to provide added values to customers in the region.”
“As packaging and label markets are linked to consumer spending and population growth, it is a key printing segment with great potential. Today digital printing has a limited penetration in this segment, however, as it advances globally and the demand for traditional printing tapers off, many of our existing customers are rapidly diversifying and are looking to us for a reliable and comprehensive solution. This partnership will help our customers expand and grow their business in the label and packaging segment of the industry," added Steve Ford, general manager for production sales and marketing, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific.
