Domino has further expanded its range of systems with the launch of the new M230i print and apply labeller. This is the first M-Series unit to incorporate Domino's unique intelligent Technology (i-Tech) features and QuickStep user interface. The system is designed for secondary and tertiary packaging applications across a wide variety of industry sectors.
The M-Series range of print and apply units offer a fully modular solution to meet the various case and pallet labelling needs of manufacturers. High resolution online coding allows for the application of barcodes, text and graphics on packaging labels, ensuring full GS1 supply chain compliance.
The new M230i offers enhanced user capability and innovative new features, simplifying the whole operation from label creation right through to print assignment. Featuring the TouchPanel colour user interface and intuitive QuickStep software, end users will be able to navigate effortlessly through the various functions. The upgrade of the M-Series to i-Tech with the common QuickStep user interface will result in reduced training requirements and fewer coding errors, especially where other Domino print technologies are already employed.
Peter Lister, Product Marketing Manager for Print and Apply labelling, comments: “The M230i is the most compact print & apply unit available and now, with 33% longer ribbon and label capacity at 600m, it offers unparalleled levels of Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE). The innovative magnetic print head mounting system allows tool-free replacement for minimum downtime.” The new M230i range includes a wide range of standard applicators to choose from such as Tamp, Blow, Wipe and Corner Wrap. A higher print speed allows for reduced cycle times, which makes the unit suitable for even faster production lines.
Domino’s SureStart single button activation system ensures perfect print quality right from the first label to the last. The M230i benefits from left and right hand versions as standard, as well as a more robust design to guarantee longevity and support for all printer orientations.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) due to increased print head life will ensure that operational efficiency is improved, with fast consumable and print head changes resulting in further reduced downtime. Full label area printing reduces wastage and decreases consumable costs, as well as improving print head life.
Peter concludes: “The M230i will allow those involved in secondary and tertiary coding to explore new applications and improve profitability, while reducing their production costs. Overall, the system represents a significant step forward for print and apply technologies.”
