Domino to Showcase Inkjet VDP Systems and Digital Label Press at drupa 2012

DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY—Feb. 28, 2012—Domino Printing Sciences will be presenting the benefits of its single-color K600i piezo inkjet solution, N600i digital label press and L100i thermal inkjet printer on its stand (Hall 13/D89) at drupa 2012.

Designed to integrate digital variable data printing within existing sheetfed, web presses and finishing lines, as well as delivered as a standalone digital press, the K600i delivers 600-dpi UV curable print at speeds of up to 246 fpm, double the speed of most high-resolution digital systems.

Capable of covering the full web with a single digital ink jet module, the variable data functionality of the K600i supports a range of linear, 2D (including QR codes), numbers, graphics, logos and personalized data. This flexibility to deliver high resolution, high speed VDP meets the growing demand for variable data labeling applications, ranging from simple stock control and anti-counterfeit data, to promotional games, tickets, tags, plastic cards and mailing pieces through to the printing of complete products.

Central to the success of the K600i is its wealth of i-Tech intelligent Technology features which deliver a range of OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) productivity benefits, ranging from flexible integration, minimal operator intervention and maintenance downtime while maximizing productivity.

The K600i if configured for different print widths ranging from 108mm (4.26”) to 557mm (21.96”) which is achieved by mounting a series of stitched print heads across a bar to cover the full width of the press or finishing line. Print head alignment and image stitching is achieved through Domino’s i-Tech StitchLink micro-motor controller technology, which allows for easy and accurate set-up of high quality images.

Automated print head cleaning and capping via its CleanCap technology eliminates daily manual maintenance which reduces the risk of nozzle blockages. When not in operation, the print head is automatically moved into the CleanCap where the head is capped, ready for next use.
