Designed for production

Designed with the typical high precision of Durst and manufactured with the most modern production technology in the heart of Europe, the Omega 1 is fully in keeping with the Rho tradition. However, its production level and price are designed to meet the needs of the entry level customer.

High resolution at high speed

The fine art printing quality of the Omega 1 is achieved by a resolution of up to 1728 dpi, greyscale printing technology and a large colour gamut, thanks to the optional process colour additions (PCA) of orange and violet, grey, light magenta and light cyan. The precision transport of the printheads is by advanced magnetic linear drive, further ensuring consistently accurate printing.

Rigid & flexible materials

The Omega 1 combines Durst’s 10 years’ experience of both flatbed and roll to roll printing technology and can print rigid and flexible material without compromise to either. The machine will print onto media like Kapa®, Forex®, Acrylic, Dibond®, Correx® and wood up to a thickness of 5cm, as well as onto self adhesive foils, papers, PVC vinyls, PE foils or textiles.

Compact footprint - large throughput

It is very compact in size, only requiring 15m2 floor space, yet it will print large images up to 160cm wide by any length, which is only limited by the media length, and at a production speed up to 35m² per hour.

Excellent ink adhesion

The high quality universal UV Omega 1 inks are supplied in 1litre cubitainers to ensure that the ink retains its optimal performance even at low production levels and provides perfect adhesion on hard, nonabsorbent surfaces as well as flexible material. They will also provide excellent adhesion on such materials as metals, polycarbonates, and acrylics, particularly important to sign makers.

Reliable quality

The new Omega 1 is the ideal printer for graphic display companies, sign makers, screen printers, photolabs and studios who wish to enter the UV inkjet market without the risk of investing in an entry level machine that does not have the backing of the most innovative manufacturer of UV inkjet technology – Durst.
