“Efficient solutions” was the theme at Domino's (Gurnee, IL) booth. The vendor showcased a tabbing system designed to run in conjuction with its high-speed inkjet lines. Requiring only one operator, the tabber meets the latest USPS regulations.

Making its North American debut was a piezo drop-on-demand K150 range of printers for late-stage inkjet customization on a range of coated and uncoated substrates in mailing, label, ticket, security, plastic card and business form applications. The KI50 line can print addresses, barcodes, 2D codes, logos and graphics as well as do numbering and can be integrated with mailing lines, webs and card lines.

The K150 printer has a Domino Editor GT Windows XP based controller for data manipulation and system setup is offered in rack or desktop configurations.

The K150 variable resolution variant (VR) lets the operator adjust the angle setting of the print head for either higher print resolution (across the material travel direction) or increased print band height.

The K150 fixed resolution variant (FR) has a print resolution of 180dpi (across the material travel direction) combined with a 71mm high print band.The K150FR can also achieve all of the print options available from the K150VR.

Each system is configured with low-VOC solvent or UV-curable ink for printing on a wide range of porous and non-porous substrates, including plastic, foil and coated paper.


Automated mechanical binding system

GBC (Lincolnshire, IL) launched the eBinder 200, a mechanical binding system that finishes a full range of document sizes with a newly developed single-binding element that automatically adjusts to any book thickness. The eBinder 200 connects inline with Xerox's Nuvera 100/120/144 EA, 288 EA perfecting production system and 200 EA as well as the DocuColor 7002 and 8002. An operator can completely finish documents from two to 200 pages on the fly without set up and changeover downtime. The patented elliptical profile of the “Ellipse” element creates more compact documents for improved shipping, storing and stacking of bound documents. The elements are available in four color choices in a compact, easy-load 50-pack cassette.
