AMI Graphics Adds Durst to Lineup

October 18, 2022

AMI Graphics, Rochester, NY, becomes the first to welcome a Durst P5 500i in America.

AMI provides innovative signage solutions to professional sports teams and leagues, collegiate athletics, corporations and small business, resellers, special events, and more nationwide, according to the company.

“Durst makes industrial equipment that’s designed and built for 24/7 production,” says Peter Wensberg, president of AMI Graphics. “We went with the P5 500i because of the mesh printing capabilities and speed. It’s double-sided and multi-roll printing capabilities will allow us to continue to maintain the highest quality products and speed to market to meet the needs of our customers.”

The Durst P5 500i is built on the P5 platform and has added a “Superwide format” to the portfolio with a printing width of 5.25 meters. Designed for efficient and unattended production, rolls can be processed in single, dual and triple mode. Double-sided printing on the P5 500i provides exact front and back registration, increasing throughput even more by easing the finishing process.

“Its technological features allow us to expand our automation capabilities and operate more efficiently. After reviewing [Durst’s] offerings compared to others, we knew it would be a perfect fit,” Wensberg says.

The Durst P5 500i will operate at AMI’s Stafford, N.H. location.

“We are incredibly pleased that AMI has invested in the new P5 500i. AMI purchased the P5 Tex iSub last year and have now added our new 5-meter printer to their fleet,” says Larry D’Amico, director of sales, LFP and fabrics. “We find with many customers, once they experience a Durst printer, they understand the true value that we bring to the table. We are excited that AMI has validated their confidence in Durst with the purchase of a second device. With a Durst printer at both AMI locations, there is no doubt they will continue to be recognized for their outstanding creative insight, product quality, and value they provide.” — D.S.
