Printing on eggshells

With inks specifically designed for direct food contact, and printers that can be integrated with a variety of egg graders, CIJ is perfect for eggshell coding

Utilizing the latest generation of Domino's EU- and FDA-compliant food-grade inks, our Ax-Series of continuous inkjet printers integrate seamlessly with high-speed egg graders. This CIJ's integration capability allows it to meet all of the coding demands of industrial egg production for both family farms and manufacturers all over the world.

Our inks were specifically formulated to have excellent contrast for clear visibility on both white and brown shells. In addition, our Ax printers are built to stand up to the rigorous working conditions of working egg producing poultry farms and are capable of operation in any environment. For instance, the Ax550i's electronic enclosure is IP66-rated for maximum protection during washdown.

Finally, we've engineered our eggshell printers to have a low cost of ownership and operation. This makes our range of CIJ printers an attractive option for most operators, and with the ability to service line speeds of 325 m/min, these easy-to-operate printers keep pace with the best-performing egg graders on the market today. 

What's a good option for coding the carton?

Domino engineers pride themselves on being able to think of operations as a whole - regardless of the industry. After the hen has laid the egg and the shell has been coded up, our engineers have you covered with coding technologies for both the cartons as well as corrugated shipping pallets for long distance travel. 

For the cartons, we also have several carton coding options ready to be deployed. In fact, one of our core businesses is coding and marking plastic, polystyrene and cardboard boxes - giving you full coverage regardless of what type of product packaging you choose for use in stores.

What is the best option for coding the entire pallets?

But what do you do once those eggs are nice and coded and the cartons are coded as well? You might also need a legitimate pallet coding option to tie shipments. Not to be a broken record, but yeah, Domino has an option for that, too. If you're looking for a full-service coding and marking provider for an egg production facility, look no further than Domino North America.
