The first UK installation of Domino’s N610i 7-colour UV digital ink jet label press has taken place at Multi Packaging Solutions (MPS) Bristol, UK, an award-winning supplier of self-adhesive labels to a wide range of markets.
The installation is the result of a major investment programme at the site.
Andy Walter, managing director at MPS Bristol, explained how he wanted to capitalise on the evolving digital print technology and acquire a system that would visibly enhance his company’s label offering. “More of our customers want the flexibility of digitally printed labels, but naturally don’t want to compromise their brand with an inferior product.
“After a thorough analysis of the developments in the digital press market, we realised Domino’s 7-colour N610i label press represented a significant step forward both in terms of technology and operational excellence.
“Not only does the system’s quality of print and strength of colour enable customers to manage their label requirements more effectively, it also allows them to maintain their brand integrity, which remains a key priority,” he continued. “These benefits made the purchase of Domino’s N610i an easy decision.
“This new press will challenge designers, brand managers and marketers to push the boundaries and build personalisation, variable data and more focused promotional offers into their clients’ labels.”
The N610i operates at speeds of up to 75 metres (246ft) per minute with a 600dpi native resolution, and is available in up to seven colours. This makes it an ideal choice for brand owners when combined with triple the print speed of conventional seven colour toner based digital systems. The highly opaque white ink which delivers a silkscreen-like finish is ideal for printing solids through to fine detail onto metallic and clear label materials.
