Denmark-based folded cartons producer Emballage Gruppen has invested in Domino’s seven-color N610i UV ink jet hybrid solution, in a bid to improve production operations.
The seven-color system features Domino N610i integration module. It uses Domino’s new UV90 ink set integrated with an AB Graphics Digicon 3 and a turret rewinder with automated core size changes.
The system will allow Emballag to manufacture quality and complex labels through combining UV flexo and UV inkjet printing.
In addition, Domino’s system also allows to carry out varnishing, laminating, die-cut, inspection and dispatching of labels in one single process.
Each output reel can be programmed to the exact number of labels determined by the customer.
Domino Digital Printing Solutions Nordic region business development manager Eric White said: “Domino is delighted that Emballage Gruppen and Dan Labels have chosen this digital ink jet hybrid solution.”
Emballage, which is a subsidiary of Good Food Group, produces various types of carton packaging and self-adhesive labels for the food and beverage, non-food, industrial and pharmaceutical sectors.
The group’s specialist labels producer Dan Labels has also watched the hybrid solution at this year’s Labelexpo event.
Dan Labels produces a range of labeling solutions, including printing self-adhesive product labels, variable data labels, RFID labels and multi-layer and neutral labels.
Group chairman Otto Christensen said: “We recognised that we needed more capacity and flexibility to cope with increased customer demand for shorter print runs and reduced lead times. It was no longer economical to run these jobs on flexo presses, and so we started to evaluate the digital alternatives.”
