New Domino labelling machines boost traceability requirements

DOMINO Printing Sciences has launched its new Mx-Series print and apply labelling machines.

The firm said the need for traceability within global supply chains is fuelling demand for reliable product labelling solutions that promote ‘quick and accurate’ data sharing. Recognising this, Domino developed the Mx-Series for fully integrated, automated, GS1-compliant coding of products and pallets.

Domino said eedback from customer testing highlighted two key benefits: the printer’s high-speed variable data printing capabilities – said to be up to ten times faster than previous generation print and apply labellers – and enhanced connectivity options to facilitate data sharing.

The Mx-Series printers offer variable data capabilities and Industry-4.0 connectivity for data collection and sharing across supply chains. Advanced connectivity and configuration options include machine vision for automated code inspection and validation; and coding automation for enhanced data sharing, including integration into factory MES and ERP systems.

“Reliable, consistent, and accurate product labelling is crucial for the global logistics sector,” explained Jan Lindgren, customer operations and site director at Domino. “Our Industry-4.0 ready Mx-Series print and apply labellers have been created in recognition of this need – providing fully-variable data coding, with labels printed to exact customer specifications, and connectivity options to enable seamless sharing with supply chain partners.”

Printers in the range have been developed to suit different production environments, and boast a smaller overall footprint compared with previous print and apply labellers. Printers are available as both left and right-hand options, with options for 4” and 6” printheads, and both tamp and swing applicators, with variants providing different running modes to suit different applications. The company is expected to announce more customisable features, including additional applicator types and further connectivity options, in the coming months.

“The Mx-Series platform builds on our global reputation for excellence – with the quality standards our customers have come to expect from Domino – while delivering a whole new range of capabilities to satisfy new market demands,” added Sharmil Ghouse, global head of TTO and P&A at Domino. “We are very pleased to be able to offer this state-of-the-art solution to our existing customers, and any business looking to embrace automation, integration, and increased traceability.”
