Factor Forms and Labels, headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, has purchased Canada’s first Domino N610i UV inkjet label press. The N610i is Factor Forms’ sixth digital press purchased since 2008.
“Our focus for labels has been the short-run marketplace and our exclusive use of digital label presses and laser die cutters allows our dealers to be very successful going after this short-run business,” said Tom Moore, Vice President and General Manager of Factor Forms and Labels. “However, we are now seeing requests for larger quantities and the Domino N610i will allow our dealers to pursue mid-range quantity orders, especially those with multiple SKUs. We also see texturing being a great value-add to what our dealers offer their customers.”
The texturing described by Moore refers to a recently introduced capability, called Textures by Domino, that allows Domino N610i users to produce inkjet-printed tactile, textured labels – with the goal of increasing shelf presence to allow brand owners’ products stand out. Domino explains it Textures innovation provides a cost-effective way to create “feel appeal” without the use of expensive textured label materials.
The N610i press runs at a minimum speed of 165 feet per minute and can reach up to 246 feet per minute, producing a native resolution of 600 x 600 dpi. The system’s white ink channel, explains Domino, produces opacity of more than 70 percent.
Factor Forms and Labels describes itself as Canada’s largest trade-only business forms and labels manufacturer, with plants in Edmonton, Niagara Falls and Victoria. The company’s national network also includes sales offices in Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Niagara Falls.
Celebrating its 38th year in business, Domino is headquartered in the UK as a manufacturer and distributor of digital printing and product identification solutions. The company has 25 subsidiaries, more than 200 distributors, representation in over 120 countries, and 2,600 employees worldwide. Domino’s North American headquarters is located in Gurnee, IL.
