The installations at the production site in Dokkum will take place over the next few weeks and Probo will be presenting its portfolio expansion to its customers at an open house event on June 15, 2018.
“We are always looking for new opportunities and solutions to new or demanded print possibilities. We do not only launch products, but disrupt traditional markets,” Probo Owner Erwin Postma said. “Durst has been an important partner in helping us to achieve our aims – and we’re confident the P5 will be a game-changer for our business as we continue to expand. The possibilities will be endless.”
According to Durtst, P5 relates to five core features at the heart of this technology: productivity, reliability, workflow, versatility and print quality.
The P5 technology consists of a series of new generation printers along with newly, in-house developed software and workflow solutions. The family also has state of the art, touch operation based user-interfaces and leading-edge remote service capabilities. Everything is aimed and streamlined to maximize performance and uptime of the printing family, along with unparalleled flexibility in media and job handling.
Durst’s industrial design, originally developed by Ottl Eicher, has gone a further step with the P5. A design studio from Munich canvassed opinions from many customers and operators with a view to integrating their wishes into a new concept. This has been achieved for the P5 –and feedback will be incorporated into many Durst product lines in the future.
When compared to the Durst P10 250 HS, the new P5 is 70% more productive, the company said. Featuring latest MEMS nozzle plates powered by Durst proprietary data-path and electronics, the result is a high-speed printing system with ultra-precise drop placement and industrial level reliability.
Durst P5 technology features:
- Print volume capability in two-pass mode up to 240 sqm/h and high resolution modes of 1200 dpi;
- Offset printing quality with a drop-size of 5 pcl;
- Durst Analytics information platform for pre-emptive maintenance and detailed machine and consumption data to guarantee maximum uptime;
- Durst Workflow, which provides an in-house developed suite of applications custom tailored for Durst printers and with unique features - beyond ripping.
