Continuous label printing on short runs

AB Graphic International has integrated a Domino K600 DOD (drop-on-demand) inkjet printer within its Flytec 510 bi-directional rewinder, to provide a bespoke line for a German manufacturer and distributor of horticultural products. The system is used as a digital label printing line for webs up to 300mm wide, to meet the demand for short run jobs with frequent design changes.

The Flytec 510 system supplied includes bi-directional winding and is equipped with label, web length and reel diameter rewind counters. All machine functions are controlled through a centralised operator touchscreen control. The Flytec’s bi-directional operation coupled with the Domino K600 enables continuous printing with reduced material waste. Jobs can be printed, UV cured and rewound back to the printer so that the first label of the next run is immediately ready to print. Servo assisted drive permits a wide range of delicate and perforated substrates to be processed, including blank labels, PE, PVC and Tyvek.

The new system has replaced two cold laser systems and is said to have improved production output and print quality significantly without increasing label costs.
