Domino Printing Sciences is presenting an inkjet head system designed integrate into existing sheetfed and webfed presses at speeds of between 50 and 75 metres (246 feet) per minute.
The K600i piezo inkjet system can integrate variable data printing at 600 dpi. At Labelexpo in Brussels last week, the company demonstrated a double printhead bar for the first time, which allowed the system to print at up to 150 metres per minute.
“Today, printing companies are looking for solutions that offer new revenue streams and competitive advantage within their existing businesses,” said Philip Easton, Director of Domino’s Digital Printing Business. “The K600i with its native 600-dpi print resolution, selectable drop size, superior linear speeds and productivity features really sets new standards for integrating variable data print into existing print lines and onto a wide range of substrates.”
The K600i can be configured for different print widths ranging from 108 mm (4.26 inches) to 557 mm (21.96 inches), which is achieved by mounting a series of stitched print heads across a bar to cover the full width of the press or finishing line.
The K600i is the latest edition to Domino’s K-Series range, which the company says accounts for an estimated 30 percent of worldwide market share in its target sectors. In common with all K-Series models, the K600i has a compact modular design to facilitate integration with a range of host machines.
