The high throughput and harsh conditions of cement and aggregates bagging lines present a challenging manufacturing environment. Any printer used to mark bags with product or traceability data, logos and batch codes must be able to cope with the dust and high line speed. It should also be able to print high quality codes on uneven surfaces with relatively larger throw distances. Anything else will mean expensive delays in production, potential missed orders and increased cost of waste.

Extreme conditions aren't a problem for Macrojet printers made by Domino. Macrojet delivers high quality large character codes on different types of bags made of porous or non-porous materials. They are robust printers and perform reliably even in dusty environments with minimal maintenance. Based on the proven Valve Jet technology, they can be easily integrated into a cement and aggregate bagging line due to its compact design and flexible mounting. They don't need factory air and are used with a range of Domino inks to suit varied applications. They are the ideal solution if you are looking for a reliable, large character printer fit for harsh conditions and larger throw distances.

If you are looking for small character printers, Domino's range of Ax-Series printers are for your bagging line. The electronics enclosure is IP66 rated meaning it can withstand tough production conditions which maintains uptime. The printer connects with your ERP and MES systems to give you reduced-error coding.

For bagging and flexible packaging applications, Domino Thermal transfer overprinters have been used to print a variety of codes, such as brand names, logos, QR or Datamatrix codes, as well as batch and traceability information. Our V-Series range of TTO coders provides long ribbon lengths and high speeds to ensure cement and aggregate production and logistics is optimised and trackable.

For a complete coding solution across your processing and packaging line, Domino's range of print and apply labellers provides you with an efficient pallet labelling solution.

Our Automation and Integration Services help make the coding process safer and prevent errors from happening.

Domino Automation and Designer, our software tools for centralised label management and automated deployment, are designed to boost your production efficiency: streamline operations and minimise waste.

Using Domino Automation you can create messages centrally and automatically pass them down to all Domino printers on your production.

  • Design and manage labels at a single location: our intuitive label design system enables using a universal interface, keeping training needs at a minimum.
  • Easily manage users and their permissions: security features like Active Directory Integration enable using your existing IT network, and simplify user management.
  • Full audit trail for the management of production changes: version control provides the ability for approval and roll-back procedures.
