L Series

Domino Printing Sciences plc has launched its new L-Series ink jet solution and mailing base package for the mailing market.  Making its world premier is the L400, the first product in the new range.  To complement the L-Series, Domino has also launched its BaseLine mail table, which has been designed specifically for ink jet applications.


Based on patented thermal ink jet technology, the Domino L400 is set to open up the market for addressing on direct mail, catalogs and magazines, including support for printing the new USPS Intelligent Mail® Barcode.  The company will focus on mail base applications with the L400, but other web and newspaper personalization applications requirements will also be met.  The system delivers high resolution 600 x 300dpi print, operating at 375 feet per minute and offers an extremely competitive price to performance ratio.  The other outstanding characteristics include the sharpness of the image with less obvious ink bleed. The simple, easy to operate disposable print head cartridge concept is combined with water-based inks. The heart of the L400 system is an imaging module that creates a 2-inch print swath.  Up to four of these can be stitched together to create an 8-inch swath or alternatively, up to four independent 2-inch print swaths can be imaged independently via the powerful FlexMail software supplied with the L400 printer.


Complementing the new L400, Domino has also launched its BaseLine mail table.  Domino's system is designed specifically for applications involving ink jet printers.  This includes a high-performance vacuum based transport drive system to ensure precision printing at the highest resolutions.  A ceramic plate has been included on the dryer belt of the mail base to ensure even the most demanding Infra Red (IR) or Ultra Violet (UV) dryer technology does not impact longer term operations.


Product Director of Commercial Print at Domino Printing Sciences, Philip Easton, underlines the significance of these launches: "Domino has set its sight on delivering complete solutions for the commercial printing and mailing sectors - including variable addressing, sequential numbering, text and graphics at real-world production speeds," he says.  "Our proposition is significantly strengthened by the introduction of the L400 printer and BaseLine mail base, which together with our K-Series, Bitjet+, JetArray and A-Series ink jet printer range, gives a product offering to meet the vast majority of potential applications.  This gives Domino the advantage of being able to offer expertise in drop on demand, continuous or binary ink jet technologies to complement the L-Series in specialized applications.  Any of these can be integrated with our BaseLine mail table for optimum handling."
