Domino Printing Sciences Rewrites the Rules of Coding and Marking with new Ax-Series
Domino Printing Sciences is launching the Ax-Series, a new range of continuous ink jet (CIJ) printers optimised for the most demanding industrial packaging environments. In developing the new series, Domino has rewritten the rules of coding and marking by revisiting the underlying science behind CIJ and introducing innovations in three key areas. This has resulted in a comprehensive reengineering of the technology that will reset customer expectations of productivity, quality and cost of ownership.

Domino's three 'pillars' of innovation across the Ax-Series are the new i-Pulse print head and inks, the i-Techx electronics and software platform, and Domino Design, a fresh approach to the total product design to maximise productivity and ease of operation.

"CIJ remains the coding solution of choice across many markets and industries, but we saw the opportunity to rethink three fundamental elements of the technology to deliver measurable benefits for customers and change the way CIJ is perceived." says Paul Doody, Marketing Director at Domino Printing Sciences.

"With the new Ax-Series, Domino can now offer a choice of CIJ systems that will set new benchmarks for consistent high quality printing, productivity and cost of ownership, making CIJ a future-proof investment."

i-Pulse

Domino has gone back to the original science of CIJ technology to develop the new i-Pulse print head and unique frequency-matched drop generator. i-Pulse controls individual ink drop formation to create the perfect drop every time, delivering significant advances in droplet accuracy, placement and ink usage for reliable, high- speed and consistent code quality.

The new print head optimises print capability and readability, enabling even higher resolution messages to be printed, and generating multiple lines of data at the fastest print speeds, without compromising overall equipment efficiency (OEE). The higher quality codes are optimised for Machine Readable Codes (MRC) and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems, which in turn reduce reject rates.

The robust nozzle-sealed print head design allows i-Pulse to be used in the toughest production environments, eliminating unplanned stops to significantly cut downtime and minimising cleaning, even when using pigmented inks. The ability to reduce ink build-up minimises the need for wash solvent.

A whole range of i-Pulse inks have been developed for the i-Pulse print heads ensuring reliability and high performance across a broad spectrum of applications. In addition completely new inks have been designed for more challenging CIJ applications including retort (sterilisation) processes, frozen food applications and returnable glass bottle processes. Unique new fast-drying, ketone free inks for flexible food packaging applications also form part of the extensive range. i-Pulse inks are designed and manufactured to recent global standards including the latest EuPIA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for food contact material (FCM) applications.

i-Techx

i-Techx is Domino's new, flexible, high-performance electronics and software platform. It is designed to optimise customers return on investment through the printers' lifetime and eliminate coding errors by enabling the smooth integration of the Ax-Series into the production line and service support environment while taking usability to a new level.

Through use of the latest user experience (UX) development techniques the redesigned user interfaces are intuitive to use and include language and character options that enable operators to customise the touchscreen format and ensure easy operation is maintained. As a result i-Techx achieves System Usability Scores that are comparable to smartphones.

Designed from the ground up to be Industry 4.0 ready, the Ax-Series not only integrates into existing production lines but supports a variety of standard factory automation communication protocols such as PACK-ML and OPC-UA. Meanwhile the high-speed electronics enable serialisation and other unique item coding applications on the fastest production lines.

An array of integrated sensors automate system monitoring, allowing for proactive and predictive diagnostics and remote service support through the internet of things (IoT) and connection to the Domino Cloud. The Domino Cloud is being introduced alongside the Ax-Series to provide a powerful remote diagnostics, remote monitoring and customer reporting capability. Domino Cloud support is provided as standard on Ax-Series as part of the Safeguard Extended Warranty which is available for up to 7 years.

Domino Design

Domino Design summarises a holistic design approach that delivers a step change on the current generation of CIJ systems in the market to deliver printers that are robust, reliable, and easy to use in the harshest environments.

For example, the Ax350i and Ax550i feature an IP66 sealed electronics enclosure and unique plenum air cooling system that make them suitable for washdown conditions, while guaranteeing protection against steam and contaminants. The Ax550i is supplied in a marine-grade stainless steel cabinet for the harshest production environments.

Constant automatic monitoring and control of the ink condition through the unique Quality Management Module (QMM) ensures the ink is always optimised for the i-Pulse print head and promptly informs the operator when an ink, makeup or Service Free i-Tech filter Module (ITM) change is required. With the Ax-Series, traditional ink shelf-life is significantly extended and the number of operator interventions is substantially reduced, both factors significantly contributing to enhanced levels of OEE.

The three-stage solvent recovery system with active gutter control minimises solvent consumption, while the thermally engineered cabinet reduces heat build-up, extending component life.

The Service Free ITM can be replaced without tools or specialist skills, enabling continuous production with optimum line availability. Clean-Fill technology and colour-coded one-fit consumables eliminate the risk of spillage, and simplified overall design reduces stoppages.

Domino Design minimises operator invention and encourages tool-free operator maintenance, measurably reducing cost of ownership.

The new Domino Ax-Series comprises the Ax150i, the Ax350i and the Ax550i with a range of print heads and accessories - offering a choice of systems tailored to differing customer requirements.

Videojet Launches New 100-Watt Fiber Laser Marking System
To meet manufacturers’ demands for high-speed applications such as bottle cap printing and pull tabengraving, Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking and printing solutions, has introduced a 100-Watt fiber laser – the Videojet 7610 (www.videojet.com/7610 ) – to complete its existing range of fiber laser marking systems, extending application coverage for manufacturers.

The 7610 fiber laser marking system has been specifically designed for high-speed beverage, pharmaceutical and extrusion manufacturers who need power and speed when marking high-contrast codes on hard plastics and metals, such as aluminium cans, extruded tubes and cables. The 7610 laser can mark more high legibility codes up to 122% faster than previous Videojet 7310 20-Watt fiber laser, meeting the demands of high-speed packaging operations.

Manufacturers in such industries may use promotional coding solutions to connect directly with consumers through the application of intelligent variable codes on their products. With savings in time, materials and manpower, the new high-speed fiber laser can help users save over traditional, more-costly promotions. Using permanent laser marks for gaming codes is also becoming more popular due to no ink mess.

In addition to faster line speeds, the new 100-Watt fiber laser has a large marking window that provides more time to mark, increasing product throughput and maximizing productivity. “Our new 7610 has improved speeds on a range of substrates, allowing manufacturers to mark more products at the same great print quality,” says Sascha Ammesdoerfer, Laser Business Manager for Videojet Technologies Inc. The superior marking speed capability of the 100-Watt fiber laser allows manufacturers to mark highly legible codes on-the-fly at lines speeds up to 600m/min.

The 100-Watt fiber laser has virtually no maintenance and a source life expectancy of up to 100,000 hours (MTBF), delivering high performance and long lasting reliability. No wear parts help to minimise downtime, and the air-cooled laser source virtually eliminates maintenance intervals. Additionally, the optimised software and hardware combination helps to extend the lifetime of your investment to help meet your laser application requirements.

Compact in design, the 7610 fiber laser has a 74% reduction in footprint compared to Videojet legacy fiber lasers,ensuring a seamless fit into the packaging line, especially when space is at a premium. As well as the small unit size, there are a number of flexible configurations allowing for space limitations including variations in marking head positions and a choice of working distances.

The 7610 fiber laser also features a PC software interface for the creation and production of marking jobs, particularly for mark-on-the-fly applications and general laser marking. The SmartGraph™ software can also be used for laser system configuration, parameter setting, template creation and job setup and editing.

“The Videojet 7610 100-Watt fiber laser helps enable manufacturers to mark crisp, clear codes at up to 600 metres per minute,” said Ammesdoerfer. “Demands for increased throughput and more code content can be met with this new fiber laser, helping our customers meet their production goals.”

The Videojet 7610 is one of a number of innovative new laser products being launched by Videojet in 2016.

Adding Brand Value Through Real-Time Marketing With Datalase
Boosting the consumer appeal of packaging with personalised inline digital printing can add an unprecedented amount of value for brand owners, according to Mark Naples, VP business development Europe and APAC at DataLase.

Mr Naples delivered the presentation ‘Real Time Marketing on Pack’ at ThePackHub and EFIA sponsored ‘Printing for Brand Packaging’ held at 3M Innovation Centre, Bracknell, last month. During the talk, he outlined the benefits of utilising the leading inline digital printing company’s capabilities for late stage pack customisation.

Mr Naples commented: “The e-commerce sector is evolving fast and that’s changing the way brands and consumers speak to each other. Brand owners and retailers need to deliver smart messaging in order to stand out from the competition, whilst engaging the consumer.”

The DataLase inline digital printing solution facilitates this considered approach by creating real-time marketing capability on a product or pack at the point of fulfillment. High quality graphics, logos and variable data for targeted marketing is lasered onto a pre-printed patch, which then offers an exceptionally rapid response to key events, trends and consumer insight.

As well as increasingly agile proactive marketing, brand owners can utilise DataLase technology to gain valuable consumer insight. Inline printed promotional messaging can encourage the consumer to connect via social media or web to volunteer information that can be used to drive pro-active engagement.

Mr Naples added: “The solution offers a whole new level of inclusive brand engagement. If we factor in purchasing and browsing data, brand owners can provide a customer with a considered package rather than just a boxed product. For example, a customer identified as a baker could be offered recipes, coupons and complementary product suggestions on pack.

The DataLase solution combines its core colour-change materials technology with the latest generation of laser print engines to deliver high speed, high resolution, on-demand digital printing that is a high performance alternative to conventional print methods.

The technology relies on a unique additive which is incorporated into an ink or coating applied as a ‘patch’ on to a pack. When exposed to a CO2 or Near InfraRed laser, this generates a colour change reaction in the pigment creating a high quality, durable digital print finish.

The solution can be applied to virtually any substrate across a wide range of FMCG product and packaging applications in the food and drink sectors.
