Gurnee, Illinois, USA February 26th 2007: Domino Printing Sciences plc, the leading ink jet and laser solutions provider, has launched the M-Series, a new range of print & apply technologies, enabling the company to provide a complete range of flexible end-to-end coding solutions, including the full compliment of primary, secondary and pallet coding offerings. The new M-Series comprises a fully modular system consisting of printers, applicators and accessories, which provide label application flexibility, capable of meeting the wide ranging requirements of today’s manufacturers. Delivering accurate information and label placement without compromising production line speeds, the M-Series range ensures maximum productivity, flexibility and therefore profitability. Domino’s M-Series print & apply technologies include thermal transfer and direct thermal label printers, available in left and right hand versions. These combine with a range of blow, tamp, tamp and blow and wipe label applicators for optimal performance and operation. The Domino range comprises:- · The M100 Direct Thermal label printers for short life labeling; · The M200 Thermal Transfer label printers used for a wide range of print and apply applications; · The M300 with RFID programming and reading capabilities; · The M400 OEM variant integrates third party print engines; · The M600 pallet applicator for printing and applying labels directly onto wrapped pallets. Any of these printer variants can be combined with any of the range of applicators to offer an optimum solution. “The launch of the M-Series range represents a significant addition to Domino’s existing outer case coding solutions. It now enables us to offer the full coding technology spectrum spanning the entire range of primary, secondary and pallet coding, capable of meeting every customer requirement for printing variable data, text, graphics and RFID data onto outer cases,” says Mike Hurst, Director of Outer Case Coding at Domino Printing Sciences plc. “As with all Domino technologies, the M-Series range has been designed and manufactured to the highest standards and benefits from the usual after sales service and support that is synonymous with the quality Domino brand,” he continues. “Furthermore, the standard configurations within the M-Series offer the widest range of products and solutions within the print and apply sector for a vast range of applications, whilst its fully flexible modular approach ensures that the individual requirement is not compromised.” The M-Series can be seamlessly integrated into existing production lines, offering high quality printing of GS1 compliant bar codes, text and graphics to ensure supply chain compliance. Designed to meet Domino’s commitment to supporting lean manufacturing processes and overall equipment effectiveness, the M-Series has been developed to maximize production output with minimum disruption. Its simple label selection ensures operator independence, whilst the combination of large label and ribbon capacity, optional sensors to alert operators when consumables are low, and straightforward label and ribbon paths, all allow for managed intervention, minimal downtime and therefore an enhanced and efficient production throughput. The M-Series range includes a high performance intuitive printer control unit with informative operator interface with both USB and RS232 connections as standard and with optional Ethernet, and is complemented by a range of accessories such as handheld terminals, fully adjustable stands, beacons and bar code validation scanners.
