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. If you're looking for a full-service coding and marking provider for an egg production facility, look no further than Domino North America. 

We have labelers capable of being mounted anywhere in your production line to ensure that your pallets can be labeled from any direction, front or rear, corners, and even with multiple panels

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

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