Domino Printing Sciences has reaffirmed its commitment to the digital inkjet print market with €2.2 million investment in a new 3500m² digital print demonstration center close to its existing headquarters in Cambridge, UK. Barry Few, a longtime Domino employee with more than 30 years’ service cut the ribbon at an opening ceremony on February 25, 2014. These facilities will play a significant role in supporting Domino’s growth in the digital printing field.
Domino Printing Sciences’ Group Managing Director Nigel Bond provided insight into the company’s digital ink jet printing heritage and its journey over the last 35 years since it was founded. Philip Easton, director of Domino’s Digital Printing Division, then outlined the company’s vision for future growth. A tour of the demonstration facilities followed, with live demonstrations of the company’s K600i, the Bitjet+ v4.5 and Domino’s latest digital 5-color inkjet label press, the N610i, which was launched at Labelexpo 2013.
“As digital inkjet technology continues to make headway on more traditional printing methods – with customer demand from the label and packaging markets for such technology intensifying – it was a natural step for us to expand our digital printing facilities to accommodate this growth," explained Easton. “This demonstration center, with its training, development and testing facilities, will enable us to showcase our latest technologies to existing and prospective customers, continue our investment in R&D and deliver even better training to our support and service teams. It’s an exciting chapter in the Domino story.”
