Rotocontrol is joining forces with Domino and EyeC to host an open house 24–25 November 2021 at Siek, Germany. The event will feature a live demonstration of an integrated end-to-end hybrid solution with the Rotocontrol DT 2.0 label finishing machine, Domino’s N610i inkjet label press, and the EyeC ProofRunner web inline inspection system.

“Visitors to our open house will witness a comprehensive hybrid solution in flexo and digital label printing, inspection, and finishing with a magnitude of features unrivaled in the industry,” said Marco Aengenvoort, Rotocontrol managing director.

Features of the highly modular hybrid solution include multiple die-cutting stations, rotary flexo and flatbed screen printing units, up to seven colors including opaque white, with 600dpi native print resolution, combining the productivity of flexo printing with the flexibility offered by rapid job change digital technology. The N610i integration module incorporates Domino’s renowned, automated, i-Tech intelligent Technology productivity features for enhanced flexibility and reliability.

Other capabilities included in the hybrid line are lamination, cold foiling, hot stamping, label inspection with 100% outgoing quality control, corona treatment, UV LED curing, and a small roll programmable auto turret winding machine.

Domino expressing its pleasure in working with Rotocontrol and EyeC altogether

Ruud Bos, Domino’s DP OEM manager Europe, said, “We are delighted to be working with Rotocontrol and EyeC at this open house. This is a highly efficient method to print labels in one pass, combining digital printing with embellishments and in-line inspection. It is a single efficient process from white reel input, to outputting finished inspected labels, enabling the label converter to support short lead times, and also improve their environmental credentials through reducing material waste normally associated with multiple processes.”

Demonstrated on the running hybrid solution will be various types of high-quality printed labels with quick job changeovers. Label Printers who wish to attend the open house are invited to send their print files and material in advance for the live demonstration.

Two Ecoline RSI label finishing machines will also be showcased during the open house featuring the Domino K600i inkjet printer for barcode and QR code printing and the EyeC ProofRunner Web and Quality Link system.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
