Domino to introduce new K600i White digital print module

PKBR Staff Writer Published 14 July 2017

Domino Digital Printing Solutions has unveiled plans to launch new K600i White digital print module at this year’s Labelexpo Europe in Belgium.

The event will take place from 25 to 28 September in Brussels.

The company has developed new digital print module to provide printers with a digital alternative to screen printing.

It will allow to provide immediate job change, minimal maintenance, variable data printing capability, in addition to avoiding the need to buy screens.

The advanced ink management system will enable to use a heavily pigmented UV curable white ink.

K600i White digital print module will help to print high definition white text in very small point sizes onto personal care labels, as well as for other transparent label applications.

In addition, the system can be used for promotions such as personalising with different names, places and promotional games.

The new printing module can also be incorporated into an existing PDF workflow.

K600i White is an advancement to the K600i piezo drop-on-demand ink jet system and incorporates two print bars for increased ink laydown capability at higher speeds.

 With a standard print width of 333mm, the system operates at a production speed of 50m/m or 75m/min in lower coverage mode.

Domino Digital Printing Solutions director Philip Easton said: “It is widely known in the print industry that there are issues surrounding white ink.

“The reason it can be problematic is that it is heavily pigmented. When not in use, white ink tends to settle and thicken, which for ink jet technology can cause blocked nozzles resulting in unplanned downtime and higher maintenance costs.”
