Durst Rho 351R replaces Durst Rho 350R Print E-mail

The Durst Rho 350R experimented with offering cationic UV ink as an option. This ink from Japan was a disaster.

The Zund 250 also tried cationic ink (from Sericol). This cationic ink was a complete failure.

So it now Durst offers an update, the Rho 351R. No more option for cationic ink.

While on this same subject, Gerber is bravely still trying to make cationic UV ink chemistry work in its ion printer.

FLAAR is offering personalized consulting at each trade show. You can walk-the-floor with the Senior Editor of FLAAR and get his comments on any and all printers, inks, RIP software, color management, substrates, applications, etc.

So if you wish to learn about the difference between combo, hybrid, and dedicated UV printers, how latex ink compares, about textile printers, etc. contact FLAAR to obtain consulting.

You can also get consulting before ISA or FESPA anywhere in the world: Dubai, India, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, China, Korea, London and more.

Other roll-fed UV printers hold most of the market share.

The NUR Expedio 5000 was the first roll-to-roll UV printer, so it had a head start. Together with the Expedio 3200 Inspiration NUR holds about 70% of the market for dedicated roll-fed printers.

Gandinnovations also offered one following the lead of NUR. Now that NUR has over 70% of the market share HP Scitex is trying to come out with a competing model, HP Scitex XL2200.

You don’t see the Durst Rho 351R at many trade shows so it has not been possible to write any report on it. But for the NUR Expedio 5000 and NUR Expedio Inspiration, I have been to Israel twice, each time for two days, so reports are available on both. If you compare prices the NUR UV ink cost is relatively reasonable.

To study the Gandinnovations roll-fed UV printer I went to Lisbon to do a site-visit case study, plus I have been a guest for two days at the Gandy factory in Toronto, plus all User Manuals were made available long ago (for all the NUR printers too).
