Durst North America and 3M have announced new premium, co-branded inks – the Durst Rho Roll 3M™ Premium UV Ink Series – for the award-winning Durst Rho 512R and Rho 312R large-format UV inkjet digital roll printers.
By employing these premium UV inks, Durst users will be able to offer 3M™ MCS™ Warranty Certified graphics upon completion of the certification process. The 3M™MCS™ Warranty is the most highly regarded finished graphic warranty in the industry.
The new Durst Rho Roll 3M™ Premium UV Ink Series (inks available in C,M,Y,K,Lc,Lm) is formulated specifically for use on the Rho 512R and 312R UV roll-to-roll platforms. The Durst Rho 512R and 312R achieve print speeds in excess of 3,000 s.f./hr., while delivering exceptional print quality due to their proprietary 12-picoliter Quadro Array print-head technology. Versatile and reliable, they are the most productive roll-to-roll printers on the market.
“We are pleased to introduce a new ink set with a premium equipment partner like Durst,” said Adam Larson, Global Portfolio Manager for 3M. “Choosing 3M™-branded inks assures users of Rho 512R and 312R printers that all of their graphic components have been designed to work together, with the backing of 3M. These new inks provide the print industry with a more diverse set of equipment options moving forward to better serve our mutual customers across North America and the rest of the world.”
The combination of Durst’s world-renowned innovation and durability with the added backing of a 3M™ MCS™ warranty will elevate roll-to-roll productivity and reliability to a new level, the companies said.
“We are very excited to be able to provide printers with the ability to produce 3M™ MCS™-warranted graphics on the Rho 512R and 312R platforms, which are ideal for the type of applications that require the MCS™ warranty,” said Larry D’Amico, Director of Sales for Durst North America. “The Rho 512R and 312R can effectively manage long production runs and help tighten lead times in today’s ultra-competitive graphics market.”
