Printing on sleeves

Domino's solutions can cope with the trend for changing sleeve designs

Here at Domino, we don't have to tell you that getting customers to the correct aisle is only half the battle in the grocery store. Why? The frozen food section is filled with colorful packaging from all manner of food products from across the world.  

In the frozen food aisle, it's the sleeve itself that's the first thing that consumers see, so it's important to get the coding just right with clear, legible codes and in the right segment of the packaging. Otherwise, a wrong date code might cause a customer to move to a competitor.

With a trend for innovation in sleeve (and tray) design, away from traditional straight edges, Domino has developed code editing software for its latest range of continuous inkjet industrial printers, which ensures the right code is printed in the right place, every time. Our intuitive user interface makes setup so easy, and changes to the production schedule are always hassle-free.

We’ve also developed new inks that are stable and fast drying, allowing products to be frozen and packed in double-quick time. Even in cold environments the printers work without maintenance, monitoring and adapting ink viscosity to ensure that a perfect drop is formed – creating a perfect code that's both legible and stable.

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.
