Domino showcasing inkjet versatility at Ipex

November 30, -0001

Domino will present its K600i, which has been designed to integrate variable data printing within existing sheet and web-fed presses and finishing lines.

Domino will highlight how the versatility and productivity of its digital inkjet printing technologies can deliver added value through integrated, high speed customization, addressing, coding and numbering to a range of hybrid printing, mailing and gaming applications on its stand at Ipex 2014.

Through a series of live demonstrations, Domino will present its K600i, single color high resolution digital inkjet printer, which has been designed to integrate variable data printing within existing sheet and web-fed presses and finishing lines, or can be delivered as a standalone digital press. The K600i produces 600dpi high resolution UV curable print at speeds from 50 to 150 meters (492 ft) per minute.

The device can be configured for different print widths ranging from 108mm (4.26") to 558mm (21.96"), which means that it can be used for general addressing through to the complete personalisation of a covering letter or sheet. Visitors to the Domino stand will see the K600i in action on a Herzog+Heymann finishing line, showcasing how a direct mailpiece can be produced with UV inks to offer superior vibrancy and impact when compared to more conventional laser or aqueous applications.

Also on display will be Domino's Bitjet+ v4.5, the versatile high speed digital print system. This can be easily integrated onto high speed webs, folder gluers, plastic card, bindery, packaging and wrapping lines. Capable of production speeds of up to 800m/min (2600ft/min), it is ideal for adding personalization, numbering, 2D and linear bar codes and graphics onto all media types with no requirement for drying equipment or line modifications. At Ipex, the Bitjet+ v4.5 will be integrated onto a Rotech mailbase to demonstrate the ease with which customisation can be added in-line.

"Today, more than ever before, printers are looking for innovative solutions that will complement their existing printing equipment to add value and differentiate their current offerings, and present new revenue streams," says Philip Easton, director of Domino's Digital Printing Business. "With the industry experiencing declining print volumes, digital printing represents a potential area of growth for our customers. By adding a product like the Domino K600i to an existing production line, we convert it to digital facilitating growth opportunities. Our focus at Ipex 2014 is to demonstrate just how easy it is to introduce fully automated high resolution customised print, codes and graphics into existing web or sheet fed print production lines at the highest of speeds."
