Ahmedabad-based label printer, Unick Fix-a-Form & Printers, has installed India’s first Domino N610i digital label printing unit. The press is equipped with one flexo unit, rewinder and unwinder from Indian press manufacturer, Multitec.

It is a 7-color press powered by Esko digital front-end with color management and variable printing suite. The N610i can print at a speed of up to 70 m/min and has the capability of achieving up to 92 percent of the Pantone gamut. Ajay RaoRane, assistant vice president, Domino Digital Printing, said: ‘The speed and print quality are achieved because there are fewer moving parts in the machine. We put the two together, hence the throughput of the Domino N610i and the process improvements starts to increase a revenue capacity. That’s our goal and will be remain with every Domino installation.’

Now with Domino N610i, Unick Fix-a-Form enabled itself to deliver the labels at speed and better print quality to its customers. The company is into label printing business since 1984 and one of the leading suppliers of multi-page labels, pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves, and in-mold labels. Unick Fix-a-Form caters to several industries including pharmaceutical, FMCG, agrochemical and more in conjunction with Denny Bros of UK since 2007.

Hemen Vasa, director, Unick Fix-a-Form, said: ‘By having the Domino N610i digital UV inkjet label press, we will be able to do more in less time. Acquiring and using the press is a move towards setting new standards. Turnaround time for repeat jobs that were two weeks, as well as new jobs that take us three weeks now, all will henceforth be completed in less than one week using our latest printing capabilities. The other advantage we shall have with Domino N610i is reduced media wastage. We can also achieve a higher color gamut besides printing opaque UV white.’ 

‘With our association with Unick Fix-a-Form I am confident that they would be able to achieve higher productivity, throughput and customer satisfaction along with offering highest level of creative labels to the market,’ concluded RaoRane.
