Cracking the egg code

There’s probably few things as difficult to code as an egg. A variable print distance as a result of their curved surfaces, irregular colour tones, different sizes and the need to print at speed are just some of the challenges faced when printing directly onto eggs. And that’s before the different substrates to be accommodated by their boxes are considered. Domino has a comprehensive set of technologies able to cope with the demanding needs of this sector.
