Durst Launches Rho 1012 UV Inkjet Printer

The new machine features the company's Variodrop technology.

The 1000-dpi Rho 1012 UV inkjet printer from Durst (www.durstus.com) has a maximum print width of 8 ft and a top quoted speed of 5300 sq ft/hr.

The printer features Durst’s new Variodrop technology, an adjustable binary mode that changes the controls drop-size modulation between 12 to 20 pl and reportedly allows for smoother solid areas in prints while overcoming some of the drop-placement inaccuracies that can occur with grayscale printing.

The standard color scheme is CMYK; options include CMYKcm and the firm’s Process Color Addition schemes that add orange/green or orange/violet.

Features include left and right registration to enable parallel printing of boards side by side, mechanical two-point registration for printing front and reverse sides in perfect register, and fast changeover from rigid to roll-fed media.
