DSiQ-R is an inkjet retrofit option for the company's Evolution and Performance Series press platforms
Mark Andy has added DSiQ-R to its product offering, extending the company’s position in digital and furthering its relationship with Domino.
Mark Andy joined forces with Domino to launch the Digital Series iQ hybrid press back in early 2021, which was an advancement of the press manufacturer’s digital offering. At Labelexpo Europe 2023, Domino debuted the N610i-R retrofit module, upon which the DSiQ-R is based.
The 600dpi inkjet engine, powered by Domino technology, can accommodate web widths up to 340mm and in production mode can run up to 70m/min. The module is available with four (CMYK) or five (WW+CMYK) colour and mounts directly to a flexo press, making high-end label enhancements including cold foil, lamination or die-cutting possible in single-pass production.
The retrofit module is equipped with Domino’s iTech features, including ActiFlow2, CleanCap2 and SetAlign, to deliver ‘consistent density and quality’ across the printed web. A digital front end is included, simplifying software integration, and a single user interface makes job set-up and management ‘intuitive’. All equipment is compatible with Mark Andy’s sMArt link technology, which is a Cloud-based job management system that monitors real-time press data, optimising pressroom workflows from job-to-job and shift-to-shift.
DSiQ-R is designed to integrate with Mark Andy’s Evolution and Performance Series press platforms to create, ‘a fully hybrid, single-pass production solution,’ according to the company.
