If you work within the production of cement, harsh environments are a fact of life. That, and a requirement to keep throughput at a high enough level to turn a profit. These aspects create a uniquely challenging manufacturing environment - especially for industrial printers.
Any printer used to mark aggregate bags with product or traceability data, logos and batch codes must be able to cope with the dust and high production line speeds inherent in cement production. In addition, the printer should also be able to print high quality codes on uneven surfaces with relatively large throw distances.
Can Domino Inkjets stand up to the abuse?
Domino's range of Ax-Series printers are an excellent option for your bagging line. The electronics enclosure is IP66 rated meaning it can withstand tough production conditions and can maintain uptime. In addition, the printer connects with your ERP and MES systems to give you reduced-error coding.
Extreme conditions simply aren't an issue for the Ax. Our continuous inkjets make a living on delivering high-quality codes on porous material bags.
They are robust printers and perform reliably even in dusty environments with minimal maintenance. They can be easily integrated into a cement and aggregate bagging line due to its compact design and flexible mounting. They are used with a range of Domino inks to suit varied applications. They are the ideal solution if you are looking for a reliable industrial printer fit for harsh conditions.
How do you code for Flexible Packaging?
For bagging and flexible packaging applications, Thermal Transfer Overprinters have been used to print a variety of codes, such as brand names, logos, QR or Datamatrix codes, as well as batch and traceability information. Our V-Series range of TTO coders provides long ribbon lengths and high speeds to ensure cement and aggregate production and logistics is optimized and trackable. For a complete coding solution across your processing and packaging line, Domino's range of print and apply labelers provides you with an efficient pallet Labeling solution.
