Tau 330 UV Inkjet Printer System with a higher productivity and operating efficiency than Toner Technologies installs at Albea to digitilize their laminate tube print production.

Durst, the industrial inkjet specialist is installing the successful Tau 330 UV Printer System at Albea Americas Inc. The full-service provider of beauty- and personal care products, Albea, has been faced with decreasing batch sizes and subsequent increasing cost pressure for some time now. The solution for printing on laminate tubes, was to introduce a new production technology, which provides flexibility, as well as economic efficiency regardless of the batch size. The choice between Toner Technologies and digital UV Inkjet Print, followed an evaluation process of extensive test runs and product sampling. Albea’s decision for the Durst Tau 330 was reached on the basis of its higher productivity, its large color spectrum which covers 90% of the Pantone color scale, its highly opaque White in the Single-Pass Mode and an excellent ink adhesion even without any special finishing treatment.
The Low-Migration UV Ink System, which is available exclusively for the Tau 330, meets the stringent criteria for printing on primary packaging.

The Durst Tau 330 is our answer to the challenges we currently face“, says Roy Turner, VP and General Manager, Albea Americas Inc. “The premium print quality and the operating efficiency were the decisive factors for us. The Tau 330 is a solid and robust construction, designed to operate 24/7. Our system comes with 7 colors and is equipped with the low-migration ink. These features open up new market opportunities for us, in addition to our standard products.
