Durst introduced its new Rho 900 UV printer, which is based on the company’s 800HS model but adds an automated media handling (auto-feed) system and process colors—orange and green, or orange and violet.

The 98-inch-wide Rho 900 is equipped with Durst’s Quadro 30D Array printhead technology and offers 600-dpi resolution. Durst reports that the 8-color machine (CMYK+4 ink bays that can be set up as print jobs/apps require) can hit a maximum output of 72 4 x 8-foot boards/hour with its continuous board printing option; speed for P-O-P-quality printing is 34 4 x 8-foot boards/hour.

It can accommodate media up to 1.58-inches thick (2.75 inches in the industrial version) and as small as 12 x 17 inches if need be. The media-handling system incorporates an auto-feed table with belts, sheet feed gate with guides for parallel board printing, and automatic two-point pin registration system to ensure accurate front-to-back registration.

The machine’s process-color additions are printed in the same mode as its CMYK process colors; no special file preparation is necessary. Further, these additional colors can be printed—even with white ink or light colors—with no loss in output speed, Durst reports. The Rho 900 also can print white, varnish, and light colors.

A Caldera RIP Server (GrandRIP+) is included. The Rho 900 is available now.
Durst also had its first North American showings of three other printers: the flagship Rho 1000, the five-meter rollfed 500R, and the 800HS. We reported on this trio in our July issue when they made their debut at Fespa; see that issue for a full report.
