Domino displayed various coding machines at the CPHI & PMEC exhibition, 12 to 14 December 2018, Greater Noida. “Our main objective of participation at the PMEC is to showcase our technology first hand to pharmaceutical audience and OEMs, so that they can experience our laser, print and apply, thermal transfer overprinters and inkjet printers. We can either help them to integrate these equipment to their machines, or work directly with them by supplying our machines to meet their coding and marking requirements,” said an executive from Domino present at the exhibition.
For the first time in India, Domino displayed its print and apply corner wrap machine M230i during the exhibition. The M230i incorporates Domino’s unique intelligent Technology (i-Tech) features and QuickStep user interface. The system is designed for secondary and tertiary packaging applications across a wide variety of industry sectors. Incorporating the latest i-Tech features, the innovative corner wrap functionality and high labeling speed allow it to keep pace with most carton erector and filling lines.
“The M230i offers a fully modular solution to meet the various case and pallet labeling needs of manufacturers. High resolution online coding allows for the application of barcodes, text and graphics on packaging labels, ensuring full GS1 supply chain compliance. We have already sold a good number of this machine in developed countries like America,” the executive said.
With the evolving pharmaceutical market, the industry is required to follow complex packaging compliance. Compliance is of paramount importance and a challenge to manufacturers every day. Therefore, processes need to be adapted to meet changing production demands. “An ongoing trend, legislatively required of the pharma industry, is to print machine readable code on their products. So companies need smart devices which are capable of printing codes as per the requirement of the legislation of different countries,” he said.
In addition to the M230i, Domino also displayed its D620i – a CO2 laser coder. According to Domino, it codes at extremely fast speeds and reliably marks substrates such as hardened glass, some metals as well as softer substrates such as plastics and paper. Other products displayed by Domino at the event were V230i, which is a digital thermal transfer coding; and thermal inkjet printers for printing on cartons.
