As technology continues to evolve and progress, the print industry is seeing a significant shift from traditional methods of operation. New printer technology that allows for variation in the type and size of print runs and shorter lead times, changing customer needs, and an increase in competition have all contributed to this shift. Generally speaking, no longer can print shops have a singular focus and remain competitive. This change has driven print shops to modify their business goals, expand their offerings by converging with other segments, and upgrade their printer technology.
Thanks to everyone who made our time at the 2018 SGIA Expo a success! Those who took time out of their schedule to stop by the Durst booth helped to make this one of our most successful shows ever. The 2018 SGIA Expo was held October 18-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center with attendance of more than 24,000 printing technology industry professionals and 612 exhibitors on a sold-out show floor.
The Durst P5 Series for large-format digital printing was introduced earlier this year, leading the next generation technology in large-format digital printing. The first member of this series is the P5 250 HS, targeted towards high volume industrial production, as well as one-offs in offset quality.
