The newest member of the Tau RSC platform is the Tau RSCi. Available in printing widths of 330, 420 or 510 mm the printer is using the Tau RSC UV inks. The press is designed to take over mid-to longrun jobs but is also able to produce short-run jobs in the most economic way.
The user-friendly design including jumbo winders and roll lifts allows fast roll changes and good accessibility to print heads, UV-lamps and transport rollers. The integrated large inspection table provides space for visual inspection. The Tau RSCi is equipped by default with a chill roller to guarantee maximum material and application flexibility.

RSCi Success Stories & more
TAU RSC UV INK
With the launch of Tau 330 RSC label press, the new ink set Tau RSC UV ink has been introduced.During development the focus was on excellent flow characteristics and high edge sharpness.
With 7 process colors it is possible to cover up to 95% of the Pantone color scale and reproduce corporate colors exactly.
Tau RSC UV inks are light-fast and resistant to chemical influences. Tau RSC UV inks are available in Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Orange, Violet, Green and White.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
- Commercial labeling
- Personal care

The light-fastness of this ink set was determined on raw material level in combination with the Xenon Arc test. The subsequent table summarizes the corresponding results rated to the blue wool testing protocol.
REACH and SVHC compliance: All utilized raw materials are REACH compliant.Furthermore, the inks do not contain any known amounts of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) at more than 0.1% (or the lowest concentration limit specified in Part 3 of Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 which results in the classification as a SVHC), or which could be subject to potential future authorization process(as outlined in REACH Art 56).
VOCs: Tau RSC UV inks do not contain volatile organic compounds(VOCs) as described by EU definition Council Directive 1999/13/EC.
BPA and benzophenone: Bisphenol A(BPA) and benzophenone are not intentionally added to this ink.
Natural latex statement: Tau RSC UV inks are latex free.
UL and CSA recognitions: The adhesive performance, as well as the legibility and print endurance, is evaluated according to UL 969 after exposing the printed labels to different temperatures, UV light, water, rubbing and scraping.Inks themselves cannot be UL recognized, the standard is only applicable to printed label materials. Together with the label material manufacturer Avery Dennison, Durst has obtained UL recognitions for the Tau RSC inks in combination with several self-adhesive materials.
BS5609 SECTION 3: Labels printed with Tau RSC UV ink have successfully passed BS5609 section 3 certification.
Chemical resistance: Resistance to n-hexane, methylated spirit and gasoline has been tested successfully.
Temperature resistance: According to UL 969, part 7.1 print samples have been exposed for 10 days to a temperature of 150²°C and 180²°C.The prints with Tau RSC UV inks showed a very good stability and resistance.
Outdoor weathering: Artificial weathering machines are used to simulate sunlight and rain influence to labels.Tau RSC UV inks offer a high-resistance to ensure proper readability.
DURST SOFTWARE LABEL
All Tau printers are equipped with Durst Workflow Label new software solution and the monitoring tool Durst Analytics.
To integrate e-commerce businesses, Durst offers a scalable solution for B2C and B2B with Durst Smart Shop.All Durst software can be modularly extended and managed with a web-based user interface.

PRECISE INK COST ANALYSIS
When print data is uploaded, a complete check and normalization of the data, as well as an exact calculation of ink consumption for the print file, is carried out. The configuration can be done by the user. Whether the production is cheaper only with CMYK, or by using additional process colors, can be calculated immediately.
EXACT COLOR RENDITION
Using material-specific or customer-specific colors, Durst Workflow Label always ensures perfect reproduction also of standardized colors.
Latest improvements have increased the rip speed, especially for heavy variable data jobs. The Harlequin Host Renderer, which is now included with every Durst Workflow Label solution, reduces the ripping time tremendously.In addition, a high-performance workstation with 12 cores further improves the performance.
By generating statistics for a defined period, the user can also identify opportunities in the internal workflow to make further improvements in process efficiency.
GRID CHART & COLORBOOK
Spot colors can be set to a specific system, substrate, customer or just a print item to allow easy management of spot colors and specific optimization. With a Grid Chart, all spot colors can be adjusted to fit requirements of your customer. Color books, including all Pantone colors, can be printed by the operator directly out of the Durst Workflow Label.
COLOR MATCHING ON DEMAND
You can automatically adjust any defined spot color using a photospectrometer to ensure a best possible match to your existing proof.
Durst Workflow Label offers a user management with access levels. Multiple users can log in through the browser of their local workstation or mobile device and work simultaneously.
