Domino – New 7-colour ink set for the N-Series label press
BELIGUM • At Labelexpo Europe 2017 Domino Digital Printing Solutions launched a new 7-colour ink set for the N-Series Digital Label Press. Designed for use with the Domino N610i hardware and workflow, the new UV90 ink set has improved coverage and print quality on media types, particularly in areas of low density tints.
According to Domino, when used in High Quality Mode (50 m/min / 164 fpm) the ink set can accurately reproduce over 92% of the Pantone range; in high speed Mode (70 m/min / 229 fpm) the new ink set enables to reproduce over 90% of the Pantone range. UV90 has been formulated to be both EuPIA and Swiss Ordinance compliant.
According to the company the UV90 ink set has improved adhesion across a range of industry standard substrates. Additional improvements have also been made to other mechanical properties. Lightfastness scores have a higher rating when measured with the Blue Wool Scale, achieving the „highest possible score of eight on most media types“. Abrasion resistance is also improved.
With the UV90 ink set the white opacity of the Domino N610i label press is set to achieve about 72% opacity at 50 m/min (164 fpm).
