Durst drives growth for Label Makers

Labels specialist The Label Makers has revealed that its investment in the Durst Tau RSC platform and software capabilities has helped it to expand into new markets and win new work.

The Label Makers is a family-owned company that was formed in 1963

The firm became the beta test site for the Durst RSC platform three years ago and has established a strong relationship with the manufacturer, running two Durst Tau 330 RSC single-pass UV inkjet presses.

David Webster, managing director at the company, also known as Labmak, says that the decision to take on the Durst platform and software helped it turn a major food brand prospect into one of its biggest accounts.

“The print quality meant that we could look for more sophisticated work, particularly as we found it far easier to hit everybody’s brand colour,” Webster says.

“Customer requirements are now changing constantly. In this market label delivery dates now typically get changed hourly, not even on a daily basis, so we have to have flexibility of printing on either machine or even transferring work from flexo.

“Durst Workflow Label software enables us to manipulate files press side, so jobs can be tweaked immediately by press operators without sending the file back to the studio, which could easily take up to 20 minutes.

“Any changes are now done in five minutes – it’s a major time-saver. And it’s a game-changer.”
