Recognised for our highly innovative approach to branded environments, we have made a significant investment in the Durst P5 500 to expand our growing role in delivering compelling experiences for our brand customers. This purchase will boost our print capacity and capabilities, allowing us to undertake more complex and demanding projects, handle larger volumes of work more efficiently and reduce lead times, without compromising on quality.

A perfect complement to our existing printer fleet, the P5 500 improves capacity by 35 percent and with its printing width of 5.24 meters, will increase our print speeds on super wide materials by up to 50 percent. In line with our continued commitment to sustainability, the cutting-edge LED curing technology of the Durst is designed for unattended production while also reducing energy and ink consumption.

Automated conversion from non-porous to porous materials will enable quick changeovers, while the machine’s impressive integrated roll support will simplify media loading and changing. Integrated front and back alignment also allow for accurate double-sided printing, delivering greater print speed and efficiency.

Fully integrated data capture also provides accurate and real-time job costings, while the job ID printing aids job identification within a paperless production environment. Round-the-clock monitored health diagnosis will increase uptime and help planned maintenance scheduling within the business.

The new machine follows our investment with Durst in a P5 TEX iSUB in 2022 and its Lift ERP software in 2021.

Michael Green, Managing Director said: “Having invested previously in several Durst machines that gave us fantastic quality, reliability, productivity and versatility, it only felt natural to continue our strong partnership and add the P5 500 to our arsenal. The new machine will give us even more firepower when it comes to meeting customer demands in super wide materials and will be a game-changer for us.”

Alongside our investment with Durst, we also added a swissQprint Nyala 4 last year and will continue to ensure our UK manufacturing site is able to produce the compelling graphics our customers’ demand.

Michael concluded; “As Moss, we are place makers and dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in print production. The addition of the Durst P5 500 to our fleet is a testament to our commitment to investing in innovation and excellence. It will not only enhance our super-wide print capabilities but also ensure that we continue to deliver exceptional brand experiences to our clients.”
