Digital Colour Label Printing

Fulfilling short and medium runs within tight timeframes economically has driven the shift to digital ink jet label Printing. Multiple SKUs, regional variation, customisation and individual traceability combine to upset the traditional economics of label printing. Demands from customers are more diverse and also, more urgent.

Domino’s N-Series includes the 1200dpi N730i and 600dpi N610i seven colour digital label presses designed to address these market trends profitably.

The Generation 7 N730i using the very latest Brother BITSTAR™ print head, with 1200dpi print resolution, delivers consistent high-quality print at the highest operating speeds. It incorporates Domino’s renown, and now enhanced i-Tech, intelligent technology features, including automated maintenance from i-Tech CleanCap2, consistent print density and registration from the new i-Tech SetAlign and optimum ink jetting reliability from i-Tech ActiFlow.

With almost a 1,000 installation of our Generation 6 ink jet technology in operation, the N610i digital ink jet press is the perfect solution for cost-effective printing of short and medium production run length jobs. i-Tech features combine to provide unparalleled reliability, automation and performance. The N610i  is configured in both reel to reel as well as part of a hybrid label press, combining digital with conventional print and embellishment capabilities.

Supplied with Domino’s class leading inhouse UV curable ink sets for a wide range of self-adhesive and shrink-sleeve label applications. Provide excellent light fastness, abrasion resistance with high opacity white for silk screen replacement as well as an option for food packaging compliance.

Traceability

Whether to link a product via a scannable 2D code to enable a consumer to learn more about a product, or to track a product through the supply chain, or to facilitate product recalls, or to provide an anti-counterfeit or parallel trade measure, Domino has a range of ink jet printers to meet your specific requirements.

For complete monochrome digital print capability across the complete web width, integrate a Domino K600i printer into your existing conventional press or finishing line to provide high quality digital flexo-like print.

Versioning
