DuraMark Technologies partners with Durst for two digital Tau 330 UV presses

Innovation in web-to-print solutions for improved customer service


With focus on durable labels, DuraMark Technologies recently invested in two presses by Durst at its new facility in Indianapolis.

Bill Bussick, president and chief executive officer of DuraMark said, “We knew that UV technology was ideal for durable labels, and there were several key players in the market. When we looked at replacing a press that had been discontinued, we knew we needed a reliable solution that met our customers demanding standards. Durst was our choice.”

OMET and Durst at upcoming Label Expo

Durst will be showcasing the latest developments in UV inkjet technology, web-to-print solutions and more at the upcoming Labelexpo 2018 show in Chicago. The event will take place from 25 -27 September 2018 in Hall F, Stand 5901. In addition, OMET will be showcasing an inline hybrid solution featuring the X6 technology, and powered by the Durst Tau 330 RSC. Focus will be on the power and functionality of the Durst Workflow software that simplifies issues with customer files without having to go back to prepress or Illustrator to make necessary changes.

In addition, DuraMark will be using the Durst Workflow software to drive both of the Tau 330 presses. “Because we deliver ‘just in time’ to customers who are using our decals in manufacturing lines, we need to make sure we can give them what they need, when they need it,” said Bob Keck, vice president of Operations at DuraMark Technologies.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
