Abbott Label Installs Domino Ok600i Twin Bar Digital UV Inkjet Printer

Abbott Label’s John Abbott is standing with the Domino K600i digital UV inkjet printer with two bars.

Last year in February 2020, Abbott label The Domino N610i UV digital inkjet press has been added to the label printing arsenal to complement the HP Indigo WS6600 and expand its digital capabilities. Commenting on the installation, John Abbott, President of Abbott Label, said, “We were completely satisfied with the HP, but we wanted to get into the inkjet market because we believe it will better serve the markets we sell in. We have many options for consecutive bar codes. In some cases we cannot record these with the HP. Our calculation models with the Domino have led us to believe that we can be extremely competitive on consecutive barcode jobs. We expect that with the Domino we will be better equipped to cater to our customers’ needs. We will be looking for numbering jobs and long runs of high colors with no need for plates. ”

A year later, Abbott Label further increased its digital printing strength and capacity with the installation of the Domino K600i digital dual-bar UV inkjet printer.

We spoke to John to learn more about the Domino K600i Dual Bar, how COVID-19 has impacted their business, and what are the drivers and trends to keep investing in digital printing for their business.

How has COVID-19 affected your business?

“COVID-19 presented us with unique challenges that we were able to address through new policies and procedures. The health and safety of our team members is always our main concern. We invested in new plumbing to wipe equipment down between shifts. Required masks must be worn by everyone in the building. Several tests were also carried out to ensure the best possible quality of work. We cannot thank and praise our team enough for their adaptability to protect one another and keep our customers happy. ”

Have you noticed any changes or trends in the label jobs performed over the past year?

“The demand for variable data printing (VDP) has increased. With the rise in e-commerce and logistics, especially last year due to COVID, we are seeing an increase in VDP demand. ”

What kind of variable data print jobs are you doing?

“Consecutive barcodes, numbers and QR codes.”

“We bought the Domino N610i a year ago for long runs with high colors to get a foothold in the variable market. We could fill it with work quickly. With this success, it was again an easy decision to work with Domino again. The K600i Dual Bar was an easy choice due to its variable printing capabilities and high printing speed (up to 492 fpm). Adding the K600i to our Mark Andy 2200 flexo press doubles our running speed and is perfect for large VDP projects. “

What advantages do you see with the Domino K600i Dual Bar for your company?

“We expect the Domino K600i Dual Bar to offer three main advantages. On the one hand, with the higher speeds we can record more long-term VDP work and produce it very quickly. Second, we can become even more competitive in this long-term variable imaging market. And third, it frees the N610i for more custom work. We can work more efficiently and grow at the same time. ”
