KDV Label expands digital capabilities with Durst

  • Publicado el 12 de Abril de 2024

Over the last 50 years, KDV has built a model of efficiency and service that is second to none in flexographic label printing. The label converter has successfully translated these core differentiators to high-speed digital printing with the configuration and operation of the Durst Tau RSCi.

KDV Label expands digital capabilities with Durst

KDV’s Durst Tau RSCi is a 17-inch, UV inkjet printer designed for mid- to long-run jobs. Additionally, KDV sees the opportunity to run short-run jobs more economically. The workhorse machine is equipped with a chill roller and jumbo winders to sustain quality at high speeds.

“We were looking for a high-speed digital press to fit with the efficiencies in production we’ve developed over the past five decades.,” says Ken Robinson, VP of Operations, “The DURST RSCi checked all the boxes and not only fits but enhances our production model and the way we can serve customers.”

KDV completed a fulsome assessment of digital printers before deciding on the Durst Tau RSCi, making critical assessment of each option’s speed, cost of operation, uptime, and of course, quality and consistency of print. This evaluation included rigorous testing to ensure customer expectations would be met, if not exceeded, in every factor from lead time to color-matching to pricing.

The Tau RSCi was the clear leader with 1200 dpi print quality, up to 262 ft./min. speeds, and added features to guarantee exceptional labels every time in the most economical way. Durst's service and support team was another deciding factor. While we deliver the best possible quality and service to our customers, it is important to know we have a partner doing the same with us. Durst was able to provide insight and real-world examples of how their presses replicate the same wow-factor our flexographic operation provides.

Steve Lynn, Director of Labels and Packaging - Sales, Durst North America commented, "The partnership between KDV and Durst exemplifies the desire for innovation and digital advancement in the label market. KDV is a renowned converter in the industry, and having just won the 2023 Eugene Singer Award, is on the leading end of evolution and excellence. We are proud to partner with KDV and look forward to our future together.  

“KDV will continue to invest in technology to ensure delivering the highest quality labels and unrivaled service levels to our customers.,” says Keith Walz, KDV President & CEO, “This is what makes us KDV. We have pent up demand for these capabilities and will continue to build our team and fleet of presses to meet customer demand.”
