The production of pipes and profiles by extrusion process puts pressure on coding and marking systems in a variety of ways. As extrusion lines typically run 24/7, any stoppages or line speed changes can lead to expensive waste. Printers must support the continuous extrusion process to maintain Overall equipment Efficiency (OEE). At the same time, they must print high quality codes onto curved surfaces and the inks should adhere to the substrates and withstand any post production treatments.

Domino's Ax-Series inkjet printers provide a simple solution when applying clear product codes, meter marks, brand logos, quality marks and other vital information onto extruded plastics. While wider diameters will allow for a greater print area, Domino’s high-resolution printers can print small, legible, characters onto narrow pipes too. Our printers are built for reliable operation in tough production environments and are designed to minimise servicing needs at the same time as reducing solvent use. This results in high uptime and a low cost of ownership. Our printers are also simple to set up and use, and printheads can be located at convenient points of production, without getting in the way of the production process. The electronics enclosure is IP66 rated meaning the printers can be washed down on-line. The inks used with our Ax-Series printers are fast drying inks specially suitable for substrates such as PVC and PE. They come in a range of different colours to give high-contrast codes with good adhesion and can withstand high operating temperatures.

Domino's laser coders print sharp, indelible codes onto plastic pipes and profiles to support high-speed extrusion lines. They integrate well into tight manufacturing lines using flexible mounting positions or custom installation designs.

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

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