Domino will be exhibiting its digital Printing Solutions at Labelexpo Americas 2014, September 9-11 in Rosemont, IL.
Domino will be on stand 6523 and will be debuting its brand new N610i 7-colour CMYKOV+W digital UV ink jet label press, its new N610i CMYK+W digital UV ink jet label press, and K600i monochrome digital UV ink jet printer. One of the N610i presses will be printing with inline finishing and the other will be printing roll-to-roll.
With 600 x 600 dpi native print resolution, operating speeds up to 75m/min (246 ft/min) and up to 7 colours including opaque white, the N610i combines the productivity associated with flexo, with the flexibility offered by rapid job change digital technology. Additional benefits include less labour and material waste, long-lasting print durability and lightfastness, and the capability to print on a wide range of substrates.
The single colour K600i print solution is designed to integrate digital variable data 600dpi print within existing sheet, web-fed presses and finishing lines. Key to its appeal 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.
Both the N610i and K600i benefit from the inclusion of Domino’s unique i-Tech intelligent Technology productivity-enhancing smart features designed to optimise printer performance and maintain the highest levels of productivity.
Domino will be participating in the Inkjet Trail; a head-to-head comparison with four other ink jet press suppliers demonstrating their printing technology and print quality in producing designated food, personal care, and industrial labels. All ink jet press participants will be using the same provided artwork and substrate materials. Domino will be providing attendees to their stand with a “Label Sample Book” containing the Domino printed Inkjet Trail labels, along with key information such as the time to print 1,000 and 10,000 of each of those labels.
Philip Easton, Director of Domino’s Digital Printing Solutions Division, comments: “Label printers visiting the show should not miss the opportunity to see first-hand how our latest generation N610i label press will allow them to exploit new applications and improve profitability through sales growth, while at the same time reducing their overall production costs. Following the device’s successful launch at Labelexpo Europe in 2013, we have worked closely with our customers and the market to identify features that could strengthen the N610i’s capabilities and have responded accordingly. The options for the chilled roller and integrated finishing line enhance the machine’s already impressive performance levels, helping customers to boost margins, reduce lead times and become even more profitable.”
In addition to the Inkjet Trail, Domino will also be giving presentations specifically on the new N610i 7-colour CMYKOV+W, as well as presentations regarding printing on various substrates – a different material each day of the show
