In the harsh, steamy environment of retort processing, it's vital to have printers and inks that can cope. That's a given with the IP66-rated Ax-Series of printers from Domino. They make it easy to code important use-by and production data on the side or base of a tin can, using code durability inks that signal successful processing. Our latest range of printers has been carefully designed for maximum uptime/availability and service-free operation. 

The Ax-Series also incorporates technology that monitors and adjusts ink quality, to limit the amount of solvent used and reduce waste and thus help cut the cost of ownership. Easy to set up and operate, our printers have the added benefit of being lightweight, making it a simple task to relocate them when production schedules demand it. Inks are quick-drying and permanent, and stable in the tough environment associated with retort processing.
