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

Downtime is further minimized by the unique i-Tech ActiFlow ink circulating system which allows UV curable ink to circulate around the print head even when printing has ceased. This prevents air bubbles becoming lodged within the print head, a common cause of jet-out and print quality degradation.

Comments Philip Easton, Director of Domino’s Digital Printing Solutions, “Today, printing companies are looking for solutions that offer new revenue streams and competitive advantage within their existing businesses. The K600i with its native 600dpi print resolution, selectable drop size, superior linear speeds and productivity features really sets new standards for integrating variable data print into existing print lines and onto a wide range of substrates.”

Typical web applications for the K600i include part personalization comprising barcodes and 2D codes for security labels, and where there is a traceability requirement to the complete printing of tickets and tags.

Part-personalization is very cost effective for long run production as it combines lower cost flexo or offset printing with digital printing for the variable data requirements. For sheet fed operations the solution is ideally suited to sheet-to-sheet game card, direct mail and security printing applications. The K600i is also available as a standalone roll to roll solution.

The K600i is the latest edition to Domino’s successful K-Series range, which already accounts for an estimated 30% of worldwide market share in its target sectors. In common with all K-Series models, the K600i has a compact modular design to facilitate integration with a range of host machines.

Domino Printing Sciences will demonstrate its next generation four color N600i digital ink jet label press with its enhanced package of upgraded i-Tech intelligent Technology smart features to maximize production efficiencies. The N600i digital color press combines print speed approaching that of flexo with the flexibility of digital printing to deliver improved profitability and a reduction in production costs.
