Domino exhibits 'innovative coding, marking'

01 April 2010

Domino UK, a manufacturer in complete product to pallet coding and marking solutions exhibited the benefits to manufacturers in the food and beverage sectors at Foodex 2010

At Foodex, Domino exhibited two unique coding systems; the V400 thermal transfer coding device for flexible packaging and the G-Series Thermal Ink Jet Printer.

The G-Series expands the range of compatible print materials, while opening up new application possibilities for manufacturers. Domino says it's the only supplier to offer a multi-substrate, fast-drying ink for this technology. The capability to quickly switch between water- and ethanol-based inks enables printing onto porous and non-porous materials and sets the G-Series apart from other TIJ solutions, which are typically restricted to slower-drying, water-based options.

Thanks to impressive 600 dpi resolution and speeds of up to 300m/min the G-Series is capable of producing superior quality logos, graphics, barcodes, data matrix codes and large amounts of text. In addition, the coder is geared towards minimal operator intervention and incorporates a simple and easy-to use interface which eliminates costly training overheads. Users also benefit from low-running costs, clean operation and a fast-fix design requiring virtually zero maintenance.

Domino’s V-Series range of thermal transfer coding solutions range are particularly suitable to food applications, where code legibility is critical and customers demand a clean, solvent free printing technology. The V-Series are the best in class which are proving to be the most cost effective and efficient systems available. The unique V400 is a traversing system for high speed printing for wide-area print requirements on intermittent multi lane applications.

With over 100,000 installations worldwide Domino’s A-Series plus is said to be the best selling range of continuous ink jet (CIJ) printers, and was represented at Foodex 2010 by the A-Series plus Duo model. This meets industry needs for improved print performance and additional lines of data beyond standard date/batch codes - without compromising production line speeds or throughput levels – by printing double the amount of lines at the same speed. This allows two-line printing at the speed of a single line, or four-line printing at the speed of two lines, thanks to an innovative dual nozzle printing system using two streams of independently deflected ink, rather than a single ink jet.

Also demonstrated was Domino’s M200 print and apply technology. This is an example from the M-Series range comprising a fully modular system of printers, applicators and accessories, which provide label application flexibility to meet every customer requirement for printing variable data, text, graphics onto outer cases and pallets. Delivering accurate information and label placement without compromising production line speeds.
