With the IPEX stage set for the much-anticipated launch of Domino’s N600 range of four/five colour digital presses, the company has today announced that it will partner with EskoArtwork to deliver their Digital Front End for the new products. In so doing, Domino is certain to increase the appeal of the N600 further, complementing its best-in-class speed and quality with workflow integration, colour management and RIP functionality from the acknowledged market leader in the packaging and labelling sectors.
Announcing the partnership, Philip Easton, Director – Digital Printing Solutions at Domino, said, “In developing the N600, we’ve worked closely with potential customers to ensure that the range meets all their criteria from day one. Workflow integration is as important an element of the total offering as the printhead: accurate colour management and optimised print quality need to be guaranteed, particularly in the very brand-oriented packaging and labelling sector.”
According to Easton, robust workflow is even more critical in the digital sector than in conventional print. “Production patterns in digital are typically more complex as the number of jobs is higher but runs are shorter. Efficient management of press time is therefore fundamental to profitability.”
Geert De Proost, Director Software Engines for EskoArtwork, commented, “The new Domino N600 has the potential to be a very strong player in the professional industrial print sector and we are very happy that Domino customers will have the opportunity to maximise performance through our new Suite 10 software release.”
“In researching the market, EskoArtwork was referenced as the supplier of choice time and time again – for its global service and support capabilities as much as for the its commitment to delivering quality products and constant innovation,” affirms Philip Easton. “We’re therefore delighted to be announcing this partnership: by blending Domino’s expertise in print with EskoArtwork’s front end capabilities, we know that the N600 will deliver exactly what the market requires.”
