Domino to “rewrite the rules of coding and marking” at Interpack

Published: 21-Feb-2017

The global product identification and traceability specialist will present its recently-launched Ax-Series range of continuous ink jet (CIJ) printers

The Ax-Series range will accompany a host of coding and marking technologies ranging from fibre laser and thermal transfer overprinting systems to digitally printed label samples.

The Ax-Series comprises the Ax150i, the Ax350i and the Ax550i, a range of high-tech CIJ printers tailored to a wide variety of customer requirements.

David Bywater, Group Product Director at Domino Printing Sciences, said: "By listening to our customers, we have optimised the Ax-Series for the most demanding industrial packaging environments."

"Domino has rewritten the rules of coding and marking by revisiting the underlying science behind CIJ and introducing innovations in three key areas.”

These innovations are the new i-Pulse print head and inks, the i-Techx electronics and software platform and Domino Design.

The i-Pulse print head controls individual ink drop formation to create perfect drops, delivering significant advances in droplet accuracy, placement and ink usage for reliable, high-speed and consistent code quality.

i-Techx is Domino's latest electronics and software platform. It is designed to eliminate coding errors by enabling the smooth integration of the Ax-Series into the production line and service support environment.

The F720i is Domino's latest addition to its range of high speed fibre lasers and will also be exhibited on the company's stand. With an IP65 rating, it delivers durable codes on aluminium cans.

"The F720i delivers more intricate and detailed promotional marketing codes," said Halyna Port, Global Product Marketing Manager for Lasers at Domino Printing Sciences.

Domino's Digital Printing Solutions division will also have a presence at the show. The company will be displaying “Textures by Domino”, a vibrant range of digitally textured labels printed at 50m/min with Domino's N610i digital colour label press.

"This ink jet capability is achieved by using the high opacity white ink on the N610i, which creates a silkscreen feel and eliminates the need to invest in expensive textured substrates," said Philip Easton, Director of Domino Digital Printing Solutions.

Interpack 2017 will take place in Messe Düsseldorf, 4–10 May, 2017. Domino can be found at Hall 11 / D55.
