Our High-Speed Digital Printer With an Laser Automatic Die Cutting Component

The Durst Tau 330 High-Speed Digital Printer

The Durst Tau 330 is a digital, UV inkjet, label printer with in-line laser finishing capabilities. The Durst Tau 330 is an end-to-end production system that prints directly from a digital file and automatically transfers to finishing using custom barcodes. It removes the manual setup and job changeover process by integrating the entire process into a single, seamless system.
