Rotocontrol is joining forces with Domino and EyeC to host an open house on November 24 and 25, 2021 at its facility in Siek, Germany. The event will feature a live demonstration of an integrated end-to-end hybrid technology with the Rotocontrol DT 2.0 label finishing machine, Domino’s N610i inkjet label press, and the EyeC ProofRunner Web in-line inspection system.
‘Visitors to our open house will witness a comprehensive hybrid solution in flexo and digital label printing, inspection, and finishing with a magnitude of features unrivalled in the industry,’ said Marco Aengenvoort, Rotocontrol managing director.
Features of the modular hybrid technology include multiple die-cutting stations, rotary flexo and flatbed screen printing units, up to 7-colors including opaque white, with 600dpi native print resolution, combining the productivity of flexo printing with the flexibility offered by rapid job change digital technology. The N610i integration module incorporates Domino’s automated, i-Tech intelligent Technology productivity features..
Other capabilities included in the hybrid line are lamination, cold foiling, hot stamping, label inspection with 100 percent outgoing quality control, corona treatment, UV LED curing, and a small roll programmable auto turret winding machine.
Ruud Bos, Domino’s DP OEM manager Europe, said: ‘We are delighted to be working with Rotocontrol and EyeC at this open house. This is a highly efficient method to print labels in one-pass combining digital printing with embellishments and in-line inspection. It is a single efficient process from white reel input, to outputting finished inspected labels, enabling the label converter to support short lead times, and also improve their environmental credentials through reducing material waste normally associated with multiple processes.’
Demonstrated on the running hybrid technology will be several types of high-quality printed labels with quick job changeovers. Label printers who wish to attend the open house are invited to send their print files and material in advance for the live demonstration.
Two Ecoline RSI label finishing machines will also be showcased during the open house featuring the Domino K600i inkjet printer for barcode and QR code printing and the EyeC ProofRunner Web and Quality Link system.
