Domino showcases sustainable manufacturing solutions

Domino’s showcase stand – Booth C41 Hall 8B – focused on solutions designed to support manufacturers on their ‘Journey to Zero’ by targeting zero coding errors, zero product waste, zero unplanned downtime, and zero capital commitment.

On stand at interpack, attendees can view Domino’s latest solutions for printing on paper, plastics, metal, and a range of new and improved substrates.

Domino Printing Sciences is proud to present its sustainable manufacturing solutions at interpack. The event takes place between 4 to10 May 2023 in Düsseldorf, Germany, and is a platform for the latest packaging and processing technology innovations.

“The interpack show is an opportunity to share how our technology is helping to support manufacturers’ focus on waste reduction and energy efficiency through production optimisation,” said Adem Kulauzovic, director - automation, Domino. “Solutions for digital printing and coding and marking may not be the first things that spring to mind when an organisation thinks of efficiency in manufacturing. However, these solutions can play a surprisingly significant role in increasing accuracy and agility on production lines.”

The showcase includes a range of complementary solutions aimed at reducing hidden causes of manufacturing waste while protecting end consumers and brand value like product printing to automation, production handling, and verification.

Product printing solutions on stand include Domino’s ribbon, ink and laser-based technologies for printing onto new recyclable mono-material packaging films. These films are designed to support manufacturers looking to reduce their impact by choosing sustainable packaging materials. Secondly, Domino’s solutions for printing on secondary packaging help manufacturers reduce requirements for pre-printed cartons and labels including thermal inkjet, piezo inkjet, and print and apply technologies.

Both primary and secondary technologies can be seen operating with Domino’s coding automation and R-Series code inspection systems – complementary solutions. These work together to automate code deployment and verification, helping to reduce the risk of manual coding errors and excess product waste.

Solutions for hi-resolution variable data printing
These solutions include Domino’s K600G – a flexible, digital inkjet printing solution for serialising pharmaceutical and medical technology products, supporting late-stage customisation and reducing reliance on pre-printed packaging. The K600G can be seen printing onto blank blister foils to facilitate individual dose identification. The second one is Domino’s K300 - a new, high-speed monochrome variable data printing solution. This technology can be made available to suit a multitude of different coding needs, including inline product printing, printing on bottle caps to the move towards recyclable, labelless PET bottles, and a whole host of other applications.

Automation and specialised solutions
Domino’s Gen X printer line-up showcases the breadth of offerings across Domino’s ‘X’ generation. It consists of Industry 4.0-ready technology stack including thermal transfer (Vx150i), thermal inkjet, piezo inkjet, continuous inkjet, and print and apply technologies.

The user interface throughout Domino’s X-generation printers improves ease of use, verification, and error reduction. At the same time, integration with Domino Automation, R-Series vision inspection, and Domino Cloud allows manufacturers to automate inputs and quality control while monitoring production line performance to increase efficiencies further.

Visitors can witness Domino’s expertise in developing solutions to suit individual coding requirements and encompassing Domino’s full suite of technologies with its specialist robotic product handling solution. This enclosed solution demonstrates how different Domino technologies (print and apply, continuous inkjet, thermal inkjet, and laser) can work together, alongside code verification systems and bespoke product handling solutions, to print and verify multiple codes onto a single product.

“Sustainable manufacturing is about more than just energy use and product packaging choices with considerations needed to promote efficiency and reduce waste at all stages of product design, manufacture, and supply,” said F Kulauzovic. “It’s a huge task for manufacturers and we want to demonstrate how Domino’s solutions can lend a hand by ensuring that codes are accurate, helping to identify and rectify causes of product waste throughout manufacturing production lines, and optimising processes so that manufacturers can ensure that all energy goes into creating the maximum quantity of sellable produce, rather than waste.”
