Domino will use Labelexpo Europe 2013 in Brussels (September 24-27), for the worldwide launch of its next generation full color digital ink jet label press.
The new addition to the Domino N-Series range signifies a further step forward in the evolution of advanced digital ink jet for label production, offering, according to the company, maximum productivity benefits, greater variable data printing and color capabilities, and the highest definition output for an even wider range of applications.
Visitors can see this latest technology for the first time in a series of live demonstrations at booth #9F70, including integration into a working AB Graphics Digicon finishing line as well as a separate stand-alone press. An integrated AVT quality inspection system will also be on display.
Building on the success of its N600i four color digital ink jet solution, Domino’s new label press, includes cutting-edge technology that combines the productivity of flexo with the flexibility of digital printing. In addition, the new, modular solution will ultimately provide advanced color capabilities to deliver a much wider color gamut to suit a greater range of label applications.
As with the N600i, the next generation solution will also incorporate a range of Domino’s unique i-Tech intelligentTechnology productivity-enhancing smart features designed to optimize printer performance and maintain the highest levels of productivity. These include Domino’s CleanCap automated cleaning and capping station and StitchLink micro-motor controller technology that enables precise head alignment, reduces set up time and eliminates stitch lines. The new press will also include the ActiFlow ink circulation system that degasses the ink for greater nozzle performance.
This new edition to the Domino portfolio will be joined at the Domino booth by the K600i single color high resolution VDP printer, which will be integrated onto a rewinder.
The single color K600i print solution is designed to integrate digital variable data 600dpi print within existing sheet, web-fed presses and finishing lines and benefits from the inclusion of Domino’s productivity-enhancing i-Tech smart features.
Key to the appeal of the K600i is its ability to accommodate different print widths ranging from 108mm (4.26”) to 558mm (21.97”). This scalability is achieved by mounting a series of stitched print heads across a bar to cover the full width of the press or finishing line.
All of Domino’s latest digital ink jet solutions on display at Labelexpo 2013 achieve production speeds of up to 75 meters (246 feet) per minute, double the speed of most high resolution digital systems.
Domino is also a participating sponsor of the Digital Technology Workshops that will be taking place during Labelexpo Europe 2013. This will offer visitors a first-hand opportunity to see label production in action and experience the high quality output and productivity of Domino’s digital ink jet label press.
