Domino wins 2017 EDP Award for book printing solution

For the second year running, Domino Digital Printing Solutions has won an award at the annual European Digital Press (EDP) Association Awards. This time, the Domino K630i book block solution has won the Book Printing Solution category award at the EDP Awards ceremony, which took place on May 10, during FESPA in Hamburg, May 8-12, 2017.

The EDP Association represents 20 member magazines across Europe, which covers 26 countries and reaches more than half a million readers in Europe. The prestigious awards, which attracted more than 150 submissions, recognise innovation and quality in digital print, honouring the best new developments in print production tools, software developments, substrates, inks, materials and finishing systems.

Bryan Palphreyman, product manager for the Domino K630i, said: “We already know how cost effective and highly productive this monochrome digital book printing solution is, and we are delighted that this has now been publicly and independently recognised with this industry award, so soon after the launch of this solution.”

Officially launched at Hunkeler Innovation days in February 2017, the modular solution that demonstrated converting paper rolls into high quality book blocks, utilising Domino’s high speed, compact, single engine duplex K630i ink jet printing press, integrated with Hunkeler web processing equipment.

Palphreyman continues: “Within the book printing sector, there is a demand for flexible technology that not only facilitates high production output and is geared for rapid job change, but also minimises manning requirements and material waste. The compact size and small footprint of the Domino K630i press gives it the required flexibility and modularity to be easily integrated into existing web processing and finishing equipment, whilst its variable production speeds of up to 150m/min meets the high productivity required for printing in the book sector.”

Palphreyman concludes: “The solutions that Domino is putting forward are equipped to answer the requirements of book printers and publishers alike, and awards such as this publicly recognise the strength of our offering.”
