The global introduction of the P5-350 printer at FESPA – in Munich, Germany (May 2019) – was the proud recipient of the European Digital Press Association (EDP) top award for Flatbed/Hybrid Printer < 250 sqm/h category.
The EDP Technical Committee’s award said particularly noticeable are the further developments in loading and material handling of this production printer that operates at speeds up to 1,290 sq. ft/h.
Tim Saur, CEO / MD of Durst North America stated, “Since FESPA the interest level and closed order volumes in North America has been exceptionally strong. The P5-350 will be in our booth at Printing United along with another new printer, the Rho 2500. These two hybrid products are incredible innovative additions to a portfolio that already has strength with 512R and 312R roll printers, 1300 Series hybrid, and Rhotex Series printers.”
