Domino Digital Printing Solutions has officially launched of its next generation digital embellishment solution after its initial preview at Labelexpo Europe 2019 where embellished labels were created using Domino’s new UV-curable clear ink UV67CL with two of K600i ink jet printers installed on an AB Graphic’s Digicon Series 3 finishing line.

This latest addition to Domino’s ink range can be used either as a digital spot varnish or a digital adhesive for cold foil applications, ensuring total flexibility with a single fluid.  It is compatible with standard medias including polyethylene, polypropylene and under the right conditions certain coated papers.

“This new UV67CL ink for use with our high speed, high resolution K600i ink jet printers were developed in response to feedback from our customers, the label converters,” says Jim Orford, K-series product manager at Domino. “They continue to face increased demand from brand owners for enhanced label designs, which not only make their products stand out on the shelf and encourage consumer engagement, but also add value to their products and brand image. Our customers wanted to be able to achieve this by delivering the highest quality, most visually striking and diverse label designs, but without compromising their manufacturing process.”

With over 700 installations worldwide, Domino’s K600i ink jet printer can be integrated into an existing web-fed press or finishing line. Domino says it can supply a complete embellishment solution in conjunction with a number of leading label finishing partners.

“The ever-changing label market is demanding faster turnaround times with more SKUs, meaning the focus is now all about how to produce short and medium run length jobs with optimum efficiency. This is not just related to the printing process, but also the finishing and embellishment too. Domino’s new UV67CL ink and K600i embellishment solution enables our customers to provide a superior service and added value offering in this specialised marketplace,” Orford says.
