RICOH and Durst sign printhead technology deal

RICOH Europe has signed a €50 million printhead technology deal to extend its collaboration with Durst Group. Under the agreement, RICOH printheads will be developed for upcoming Durst printing systems. A leading manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, Durst Group already uses RICOH Gen 5 inkjet printheads in its Alpha textile printing systems and the Durst P5 series for large format printing. As part of this new deal, Ricoh printheads will also be further developed for upcoming Durst printing systems for various fields of application.

The technical expertise and teams of both RICOH and Durst will collaborate on new solutions, developing printheads as well as printers, to open up potential for inkjet technology to address the needs of emerging applications, according to a press release from RICOH. New ways to use inkjet technologies and materials for enhanced sustainability – for example lower drying energy consumption – are already being explored. Further collaborative initiatives will be revealed in the coming months.
