Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, has won a European Digital Press Association (EDP) award for its P5 350 printing system for large format specialists. Launched at FESPA in Munich, Germany, (14-17 May) and based on the P5 technology platform, the Durst P5 350 triumphed in the EDP Flatbed/Hybrid Printer < 250 sqm/h category.

The EDP Technical Committee’s citation said particularly noticeable are the further developments in reel loading and material handling of this production printer that runs at speeds up to 120 sqm/h. It also complimented Durst’s foresight for meeting topical needs in the market and Durst Analytics preemptive diagnostics and advanced software – all demonstrated by Durst Professional Services at FESPA.

“The multiroll option is using compact and robust design,” said the report. “The Durst P5 offers patented quick printhead change, fast media reel loading by two positions for single and dual rolls and foldable roll tables. It also offers automatic detection of media wide and thickness, an intelligent multiboard infeed for up to six boards simultaneously. The P5 core values are productivity, print quality, versatility and efficiency.”

Andrea Riccardi, Head of Product Management who accepted the EDP award at FESPA on behalf of Durst Group, said: “FESPA 2019 has been an extremely important showcase for us to demonstrate the world-class capabilities of our P5 technology platform as well as our modular software solutions, Durst Workflow, Durst Analytics and Durst Smart Shop that provide customers with an automated production unit from pixel to output. This latest award for our P5 technology mirrors the fantastic feedback we have been getting at FESPA. Visitors to our stand have been hugely impressed by this outstanding technology. We’re delighted.”

At FESPA, Durst unveiled the P5 350 and P5 210 new printing systems and also presented the P5 250 HS printing system, unveiled in 2018 and now further developed.
