Durst P5 Tex iSub becomes latest business driver for MacroArt

Wide Format Solutions

To meet the demands of continuing market growth, MacroArt has invested in technology and software from Durst. The wide format specialist has become the first UK and 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 P5 Tex iSub has an integrated in line fixation 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.

This 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.

Michael Green, MacroArt’s managing director, said: ‘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.’

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.’
