UK headquartered Domino have announced the MPS EF SYMJET hybrid digital label printer solution, a symbiotic combination of a flexo press with the fully automated MPS EF platform and an integrated Domino N610i digital UV inkjet label press.
Integrated on the EF platform, the MPS EF SYMJET powered by Domino can either be installed as a fully integrated in-line or as a stand-alone off-line digital solution. With the benefits of both flexo with automated pressure settings including job memory and digital printing, the EF SYMJET powered by Domino gives label printers a wide range of new print possibilities.
Combining flexo with innovative digital technologies allows label printers to run all flexo (with the Domino serving as a pass-through), all digital (with the MPS EF serving as the material handling & finishing) or a combination of the two working together in hybrid mode. In hybrid mode, this press provides the ability of flexo to add primers, spot colours, UV flexo white, metallics, cold foils, over-varnish, in-line finishing and more; coupled with the efficiency benefits of digital such as the ability to run multiple SKUs, versions, and colours all in a single pass while making changes on the fly. The EF SYMJET also adds a wide range of inline converting solutions such as automatic quick change die cutting and embossing solutions, and flexible positioning rail unit solutions for lamination, cold foil, hot foil and de-lam/re-lam.
The hybrid press enables improved productivity, increased throughput, exceptional quality, and the flexibility of digital combined with the performance of flexo as well as converting, packaged together in a lean manufacturing format.
This hybrid operation incorporates the MPS high-end user friendly material handling, print, and converting solution alongside Domino’s digital inkjet technology for both monochrome and colour applications.
Domino, a Brother Group company, has 25 subsidiaries and over 200 distributors with representation in over 120 countries, and 2,600 employees worldwide.
