Domino sees record VDP growth

Domino Digital Printing Solutions has registered substantial investment by label converters into adding variable data printing (VDP) of tracking codes for online retail supply chain requirements

Domino Digital Printing Solutions has registered substantial investment by label converters into adding variable data printing (VDP) of tracking codes for online retail supply chain requirements.

According to Domino, the number of codes being printed has almost doubled in the last two years. The company has witnessed a substantial growth for variable data printing, both in the number of K600i printers installed, with the uptake of wider and higher speed configurations, with systems printing up to one million different codes onto labels per hour. 

‘This trend towards online retail is understood and many of our label converter customers have invested significantly in capacity to meet this, commented Jim Orford, global product manager for K600i at Domino Digital Printing Solutions. ‘Variable data printing enables a label converter to both develop new business and benefit from this added value work.’

Other K600i applications include security and anti-counterfeit mark printing, traceability codes for pharmaceutical and tobacco products, promotional games and loyalty schemes. 

The versatile and modular Domino K600i inkjet printer is designed to be mounted in-line on a conventional flexo press or label finishing line. The printer is configured to the required press web width, ranging from 108mm (4.25in) to 781mm (30.8in) with variable data print applied anywhere across the web. It operates with UV-curable or aqueous inks at web speeds up to 200m/min (650 ft/min). 

Other K600i applications include security and anti-counterfeit mark printing, traceability codes for pharmaceutical and tobacco products, promotional games and loyalty schemes. 

Philip Easton, director of Domino Digital Printing Solutions, added: ‘The K600i has been a real success for Domino and reflects our 44 years of experience in developing digital inkjet products. The i-Tech or intelligent Technology features provide such a reliable and robust solution, and it is a real pleasure to receive positive feedback from our customers about how our products have progressed, improving productivity and allowing their businesses to grow and prosper.’
