Large format printing on your secondary packaging

Are you seeking top-notch box coding without the need for frequent intervention or inconvenience?

Are you contemplating the replacement of label printers and pre-printed boxes to enhance your environmental credentials?

Do you have targets for operational cost savings to achieve?

Introducing the Cx350i… The high-resolution, large character printer crafted to align with your business objectives concerning productivity, the environment, and operational costs.

 

Domino’s drop on demand (DOD) piezo inkjet (PIJ) printer features a high-resolution stainless steel printhead, ensuring consistent high-contrast grade A, 1D and 2D barcodes*, brand logos, traceability, and product batch information on secondary packaging boxes and cases.

The Cx350i serves as an excellent alternative to label printing for cardboard, corrugated, paper box, and carton applications. Direct box coding with the Cx350i can significantly reduce your environmental footprint, requiring no factory air and generating no label waste—only vegetable-oil based inks delivered in small drops to produce high-quality codes.

Designed for minimal operator interaction, the Cx350i boasts an intuitive user interface for quick and easy adjustment of settings and layout modifications. With a large-volume ink supply and improved print accuracy, the need for intervention is reduced.

To optimize running costs, the ink is delivered in smaller, higher-contrast drops, and the print resolution is fine-tuned to ensure the best code quality with minimal ink usage for large character printing.

Featuring Industry 4.0 connectivity, the Cx350i provides 24/7 device visibility in the cloud and integrates with PLC and MES/ERP systems for full automation. This makes the Cx350i an ideal choice to support your current and future business goals.

Outstanding efficiency and exceptional print precision within a seamlessly adaptable system

Capable of printing on a diverse array of surfaces, the Domino K600i seamlessly blends productivity with 600dpi print precision. When configured to the required print width, the K600i can be seamlessly integrated into an existing web or sheet handling system for digital imprinting. Alternatively, it can take the form of a monochrome digital press. The K600i excels at producing high-quality digital variable data, alphanumeric text, various barcodes, and D codes, including the QR code, along with graphics, achieving speeds of up to 200m/min. Additionally, there are options available for high-opacity white ink, serving as a cost-effective alternative to screen printing and catering to a wide range of labels and packaging applications.

Outstanding efficiency and exceptional print precision within a seamlessly adaptable system

When it comes to printing on a diverse array of surfaces, the Domino K600i excels in combining productivity with a 600dpi print quality. Upon configuration to the required print width, the K600i seamlessly integrates into an existing web or sheet handling system for digital imprinting or operates as a monochrome digital press. Capable of printing high-quality digital variable data, alphanumeric text, various barcodes, and 2D codes, including the QR code, along with graphics, the K600i achieves speeds of up to 200m/min. Options are available for high-opacity white ink, serving as a cost-effective alternative to screen printing and suitable for a broad range of labels and packaging applications.

The Domino K600i inkjet printer also provides the capability for digital embellishments, including spot varnishing and digital screen-like white printing, often replacing silk-screen plus cold foiling. With the new UV67CL ink, it can print a high laydown digital spot varnish or a cold-foil adhesive. Alternatively, using Domino’s high-opacity white ink, it can print anything from high-impact solids to the fine detail required for 2pt text.

Employing piezo inkjet technology, the K600i is compatible with a full range of inks, including high-impact LED-curable and UV-curable inks, aqueous pigmented inks, a heavily pigmented white ink, a unique UV-curable clear ink for digital spot varnish or as a digital adhesive for cold foil applications, and UV97BK, a new food packaging-compliant non-CMR black ink suitable for many non-direct food packaging applications.

Print widths range from a single print module, producing an image area of 108mm (4.25″), up to seven dual print modules covering 782mm (30.81″).

Applications encompass printing onto labels, mail pieces, tags, tickets, forms, and security products.

Piezo Drop on Demand Printing Solutions -Domino C-Series, K-Series, and N-Series

Domino’s N-Series, K-Series, and C-Series printers utilize Piezo Drop on Demand (DOD) technology to produce prints on a diverse range of surfaces, employing aqueous and/or UV curable inks. The printers’ print heads are equipped with chambers filled with ink, and by applying voltages to the chamber walls, a distortion occurs, causing the walls to bow outward. This distortion results in a drop in ink pressure, drawing more ink into the chamber. When the voltage is released, and the walls return to their original positions, an ink droplet is expelled through each selected print nozzle.

Collectively, these droplets form high-resolution text, barcodes, graphics, and variable data on various uncoated and coated media, plastic cards, and label stocks.

This technology finds widespread use across industries such as Life Sciences, Agriculture, Extrusion, Food & Beverage, and others.

How the Process Works

Drop on demand (DOD) represents a broad category of inkjet printing technology where drops are expelled from the print head only when needed. The formation of drops occurs through the generation of a pressure pulse within the print head. The specific method employed to generate this pressure pulse gives rise to the primary sub-categories within DOD, namely thermal and piezoelectric (piezo).

In the case of piezo DOD, a piezoelectric crystal undergoes distortion when subjected to an electric field. This distortion generates a pressure pulse in the ink chamber within the print head, leading to the ejection of an ink droplet from the nozzle onto the substrate.
