Coding and Inspection from One Trusted Source

Highlighted at the booth of Domino Printing Sciences was the new R-Series range of smart vision systems for automatic inspection and validation of product codes, including date codes, batch numbers, bar codes, and 2D-printed codes.

With the launch of the R-Series, Domino now offers not only marking and coding equipment but systems to inspect codes, too.

The R-Series was developed in consultation with customers following Domino’s acquisition of Lake Image Systems. It’s not that manufacturers had no way of validating codes in the past, but the validation technology had to come from a source other than Domino. With the launch of the R-Series,  Domino seeks to deliver customer value by reducing complexity and offering a complete end-to-end solution from a single trusted partner. 

Specifically designed to work with Domino printers and coders, the R-Series eliminates the need for manual code validation and inspection or the complexity of buying an automated validation system from some other OEM. This ignificantly reduces the risk of an incorrect code leaving a manufacturing site unnoticed, while allowing for more efficient use and distribution of resources. 

The launch highlights Domino’s ongoing commitment to “Do more” to help customers improve production efficiency and reduce manufacturing waste by delivering best-in-class customer experience through products, services, and expertise.

R-Series systems have been developed to work alongside Domino printers, integrating seamlessly into existing production lines without the need for custom brackets or specialist add-ons. R-Series controllers can be run from a single human-machine interface and have a standard user interface with Domino ‘look and feel’, which is easy to learn and reduces the need for additional training. 

Unlike other vision systems, the R-Series is specifically designed for coding and marking applications. The systems are optimized for Domino fonts, print characteristics, and inks, and they match the speed of Domino’s fastest printers, meaning that manufacturers can code with confidence, knowing that every code that is printed can be checked and verified.

The R-Series is available as three separate products, with custom options available to cater to all requirements and budgets. The top-level R550 is a complete code validation and verification solution, which validates the data for both human- and machine-readable codes, as well as checking for readability and code placement. The mid-range R350 checks the readability of machine-readable codes, while the R150, a cost-efficient introductory option, offers simplified checking for code presence and placement.

With the launch of the R-Series, Domino says it can satisfy on a global basis customers’ coding and vision needs via a single reputable brand while taking full responsibility for installation, training, and after-sales support.
