Durst P5 TEX iSUB production press and Lift ERP software become latest business drivers for MacroArt

July 07, 2022

To meet the demands of continuing market growth, MacroArt has invested in technology and software from Durst, manufacturer of innovative digital printing systems and software solutions. The wide-format specialist has become the first UK & Ireland user of the P5 TEX iSUB dye-sublimation production press, enabling it to continue delivering the best print for its wide variety of customers, and follows investment in Durst’s Lift ERP integrated, highly automated software platform last year.

The Durst P5 TEX iSUB is the dye-sublimation printer with an integrated inline fixation (iSUB) for a one-step direct to fabrics printing process that is enabling MacroArt to meet the demand for high quality, high speed and sustainable graphics across all its sectors including exhibitions, live events, sport, property and retail.

The Durst iSUB contactless fixing technology ensures excellent colour consistency as well as extreme sharpness of detail in images and text, also blurring or bleeding of colour is eliminated.

Having invested previously in two Rhotex machines that gave us very good quality, reliability, productivity and versatility, and after significant research we once again partnered with Durst to upgrade our dye-sublimation print capability. Investing in the P5 TEX iSUB was a natural progression and one that doubles our capacity and changes a two-step process into a very fast one-step process.

“We are delighted with the results. The P5 is extremely impressive, particularly its quality, wide range of fantastic colours and speed, as well as its superb inline fixation feature. Having the ability to stitch two materials together online with no chop and change, means virtually no waste of materials which is extremely important with rising costs and shortages and is exactly the kind of feature that adds value to our customers.”

Michael Green, MacroArt’s Managing Director

This latest investment comes off the back of MacroArt’s installation of Durst’s Lift ERP software in 2021 and continues the collaboration between both businesses. The new software provides automated real-time scheduling, documentation, proofing and client support in a true sense, delivering efficiency and sustainability benefits for MacroArt and its clients.

“At both a machine and software level our investment with Durst is ensuring MacroArt is at the forefront of the latest print technology,” said Michael. “By bolstering our efficiency and sustainability credentials, our P5 and Lift ERP solutions are aiding our company-wide drive to reduce waste, while producing the high impact, beautiful dye sublimation graphics our customers know us for.”

The Durst P5 TEX iSUB is proving its reliability in 24/7 operation and delivering significant increases in quality, productivity and versatility to customers such as MacroArt. It’s brilliant that they have returned to pre-pandemic business levels. This new investment in our technology is a real sign of confidence for the future.”

Peter Bray, Managing Director of Durst UK & Ireland
