Domino wins top award at Drupa 2016
Cambridge inkjet technology world-leader Domino won a top international accolade at the leading exhibition for the global printing industry.
Domino Digital Printing Solutions had a great start to Drupa 2016 after its N610i 7-colour digital label press won the category of Best Label Printer at the EDP Awards ceremony.
The European Digital Press (EDP) Association represents 20 member magazines across Europe. Its prestigious annual awards, which attracted 150 submissions across 60 different categories, recognise innovation and quality, as well as assessing aspects such as value to the user, support and service capabilities.
Philip Easton, director at Domino Digital Printing Solutions said: “We beat some tough competition and the adjudicators recognised our low cost of ownership.
“The N610i has attracted a lot of international visitors to our stand at Drupa, but we are confident that it will now receive even more interest after this latest accolade.”
With over 50 units installed at label printers throughout the world, the Domino N610i operates at speeds of up to 75 metres per minute (246 feet per minute) and has a native print resolution of 600dpi. The seven-colour press uses high impact UV curable inks including a highly opaque screen-like white, and enables over 90 per cent of the Pantone range to be printed.
Easton added: “We continue to show how ink jet can innovate and add value for our customers. This award recognises the key attributes of our label press and highlights why so many small, medium and large multinational label printers are now choosing Domino as their preferred digital partner.”
