Domino continues to enhance the latest addition to its N-Series range – the N610i digital color ink jet label press – through a number of significant developments. Launched at Labelexpo 2013, the N610i combines the productivity of flexo with the flexibility of digital ink jet technology.
Domino has fine-tuned the N610i’s capabilities to further boost its productivity and performance. With the capability to handle 1m (40”) diameter reels, the N610i offers maximum productivity with up to 15% increased uptime compared to 560mm (22”) diameter rolls. The recent introduction of a chilled roller option means that the range of media that can be handled by the press has now been extended to include thermally sensitive substrates. The capability to integrate the N610i with finishing lines such as those from AB Graphic and GM, enables ‘end-to-end’ label production and is now a field-proven solution with several systems running in live production environments today.
Central to the appeal of the N610i is the opaque digital white ink, specifically formulated by Domino to run with the press. The ink delivers a smooth silkscreen-like finish, and provides the highest opacity white when printing at 50 metres (164ft) per minute.
Operating at speeds of up to 75 metres (246ft) per minute with a 600dpi native resolution, the N610i offers double the print speed of most high resolution digital systems. These combined qualities expand the range and viability of high volume production work that a digital solution can handle.
