The 205 is entry level machine offering improved price/performance ratio.

Through software and hardware upgrades, units can be upgraded to the latest capability thus preserving the integrity of the owner’s original investment. The Rho 160 W Plus is drawing acclaim as the world’s first production ink jet printer/press to offer white ink capability at production speeds up to 850 square feet per hour. This important new feature opens many new options and applications for commercial photo labs, silkscreen printers, sign shops and commercial packaging printers. While 4-8 color printers are commonplace, the use of white ink on digital large format printing systems was unavailable until now. The systems white color mode is versatile as well. User can select white as a background color, as a spot color, as a filler color or beneath a spot color to enhance its vibrancy. All very important considerations in flexible packaging printing, printing onto dark substrates, and printing onto transparent films, to name a few. The relationship between Durst and Dimatix began in early 2000 with the initial design and development of the first Rho printer and continues to be as strong as ever. “Our awarding winning Rho 160 is a remarkable high performance printer, sold to a demanding clientele. Early on, and after extensive evaluation and testing, we chose Spectra Nova printheads for their reliability, ability to jet at high frequencies and sustain throughput. It’s a decision we’re glad we made.” DURST PHOTOTECHNIK AG Dr. Richard Piock Managing Director, Durst Phototechnik AG
