– Ordered today, delivered tomorrow in XXL custom sizes
The Onlineprinters online print shop has launched a new high-speed UV roll-to-roll printer for printing mesh and PVC tarpaulins in premium digital printing quality. "The new Durst Rho 312R roll-to-roll printer enables customised large-format printing on tarpaulins and mesh in excellent image quality rarely available in the market for outdoor advertising," Julia Voigt, Marketing Manager of Onlineprinters GmbH, explains.
"The 'fine-art' image quality is ensured by a 6-colour UV ink set that includes light cyan and light magenta and by the intelligent Variodrop technology with particularly high pigment concentration and a resolution of 900 dpi in the printing system. This technology yields warmer colours and homogenous coloured areas with a soft look. "This enables our customers to present expressive and colourful advertising messages at the point of sale for a highly detailed representation of the image even up close," Julia Voigt sums up the top quality of the large format digitally printed products in the online shop at Onlineprinters.co.uk.
Weather-resistant ecologically sound XXL tarpaulins in custom sizes
Classic advertising space for PVC tarpaulins and mesh fabric includes scaffoldings, hoardings, bridge railings and any type of barrier. Rugged, weather-resistant and lightfast, the tarpaulins are an integral part of outdoor advertising for exhibitions and trade shows, festivals, sports events and many more occasions. The truck tarpaulins and mesh fabrics are printed with ecologically sound UV inks (fire protection class B1) and are conveniently usable for indoor advertising or in the entrance area of shops. Online customers can order their custom-sized PVC tarpaulins from 100 x 100 cm up to 400 x 200 cm in the online shop. The new high-speed UV roll-to-roll printer even enables custom formats for PVC tarpaulins and mesh fabrics with a roll width of up to 3.20 metres and a maximum roll length of 100 metres so that even unusually large formats such as facade advertising of up to 300 square metres printed area can be realized.
Ordered today, delivered tomorrow: "same day printing" for many print orders
"Ordered today, delivered tomorrow: The ongoing trend towards shorter delivery times is also affecting the printing industry," Julia Voigt says. "The new printer allows us to respond to customer orders for large format digital printing at Onlineprinters.co.uk by offering premium quality and ultra-fast production times. Our customers all over Europe expect their print products to be produced and delivered more quickly." There is an increasing trend towards ordering with the "same day printing" option. The online print shop processes a great deal of orders for advertising systems and large format digital printing through accelerated production times. Tarpaulins, plots, multi-wall sheets or rollups can be produced with the "same day printing" option on the same working day the order is received and are dispatched to customers in 30 European countries on the very same day. The range of printed products available with the "same day printing" option is being expanded continuously thanks to the Durst Rho 312R and other state-of-the-art printing machines.
Onlineprinters continues to expand its digital printing machinery
The Durst Rho 312R roll-to-roll printer presented for the first time at the Fespa Digital in Munich on 22 May 2014 was officially handed over to Onlineprinters, the German provider of online printing services, at the trade show. "We have developed a new printer that is excellently suited for three-shift industrial operation at Onlineprinters GmbH. The printer is capable of processing a great variety of materials, enabling flexible printing and fast printing times with little preparation time," Peter Weingartner, Director of Technical Development with Durst Phototechnik Digital Technology GmbH in Austria, points out the machine's benefits. The great flexibility, productivity and printing quality make the large format printer the most advanced and productive high-speed UV roll-to-roll printer of its class with an output speed of up to 240 square metres per hour. Onlineprinters uses the high-speed printer for efficient applications in the field of "fine art" printing for PVC tarpaulins and PVC mesh fabric. The Rho 312R is the latest addition to the online print shop's machinery of the Durst premium brand. Since May 2012 already, the print service provider has been using the Rhotex 320 industrial soft signage printer to produce high-quality fabric advertising and presentation systems. The successful German Onlineprinters GmbH will invest a total of one million euros in the further industrial expansion of its large format printing department.
