At CPHI & P-MEC, held at Noida Expo Mart, Greater Noida, from 29 November to 1 December 2022, Domino Printech India demonstrated its range of coding and marking technologies including inkjet printers, thermal printers, TIJ, and laser printers for serialization and, track and track solutions in primary, secondary and tertiary packaging. This year, the theme of the company was ‘Improving sustainability with coding automation.’

Some of the products displayed were for the first time at the exhibition. Tanuj Agrawal, vice president sales – coding and marking, Domino said, “These products are still new to the market. We are entering into the digital printing space where entire web printing can be done supporting hybrid printing where in addition to static codes, dynamic codes can be printed. The USP of these products is the capability to print high-resolution graphics at high speed. These products are still in the development phase and will be released in the market very soon.”

The Star highlight of the Domino stand at the event was its fiber laser printer which was displayed for the first time in India. Agrawal said, “These printers are used for putting a permanent code on a wide range of substrates. At this event, we are providing live demonstrations of fiber laser printing on foils for blister application. On a blister, if you want to print MICR codes or alphanumeric text messages, our fiber laser printer can beautifully print these codes on foils.”

Domino’s fiber laser printer is a versatile laser technology and is optimized for a variety of industries, for example, electronics, food, pharma, industrial, and tobacco.

Agrawal added, “The main advantages of using laser fiber printers include better and permanent code. The code quality and its performance is much better. It gives you a permanent mark that is tamper proof – the codes once printed cannot be removed since it is not an ink-based printing. In ink-based coding, there is the possibility of wiping out the code and putting in a counterfeit code thereby playing with the freshness or shelf-life of the product. But with fiber laser, tampering is impossible because it is a permanent print. In addition, laser as a technology gives a very high up-time commitment and is more efficient while operating at high speeds. It can be used for printing on multiple tracks and various forms of printing.”

Speaking about the track and trace solutions, Agrawal said, “Track and trace itself is a trend and it is still getting adopted – it is just the beginning. There are many verticals and manufacturing sectors where still product authenticity is not assured to consumers – there are duplicate products everywhere. It is very important that consumer interest is protected and products which reach the market are genuine and within the shelf life. With track and track solutions, people are able to track their product through the supply chain to the consumer level and ensure that the right product is going to the right place. This is critical and that is how the manufacturing industry is today gearing up to adopt track and trace solutions.”
