Domino’s N730i digital UV inkjet label press is designed to print all jobs, including those with a silk-screen-like white, at 230 ft/min (70m).
Philip Easton, Director of the Domino Digital Printing Solutions division stated, “This is the most significant new product we have launched since we started in the digital label press business. It has been a huge collaborative team effort spread over five years involving our colleagues at Brother Industries, supplier partners, our development team, and our customers. Today, we are so proud of what the N730i delivers, as we truly believe it sets new standards in high performance inkjet label printing.”
Louise Adcock, Global Product Manager at Domino Digital Printing Solutions highlights, “During the development of the N730i, we focused on three key areas: providing consistent print quality at high speed, ease of use, and flexibility.”
The Brother BITSTART 1200dpi printhead uses a combination of the smallest drop sizes of 2.1pl and nominal drop sizes of 2.8pl and 3.3pl to provide consistent ink density across the image, producing exceptional printing including fine fonts, micro-text, sharper edges, and smoother gradients. Patented triple-layer polycrystalline micro piezo technology minimizes cross talk and delivers precise nozzle control for optimum drop placement accuracy.
Domino’s unique intelligent Technology (i-Tech) features represent developments designed to measurably improve efficiency, use, function, and reliability. i-Tech SetAlign is a new automated system that sets density and accurately aligns the printheads. The result is uniform and seamless print quality across the full web width. Domino has also enhanced performance with i-Tech CleanCap2, an automated printhead cleaning and capping system, which is a controlled process reducing manual operator intervention and waste. Other i-Tech features include the established i-Tech ActiFlow, UltraMix, and WebRev.

The existing user interface has been completely rewritten for the N730i with the development of the new Domino SunLight. This flexible graphical user interface with its modern look and feel is completely intuitive and highly configurable. A new enhanced version of the industry standard ESKO Digital Front End has been adopted, including improved variable data printing performance, and producing process colors including orange and violet, for lower ink usage and an increased color gamut. Support for the industry standard JDF/JMF data transfer format allows for automated job set-up and reporting. This also means upward integration with the leading management information systems can be readily achieved.
Offering label manufacturers maximum flexibility, the N730i is available with optional flexo stations for priming to facilitate consistent quality even on the most challenging media types, and for spot colors or varnishing, increasing the range of jobs that can be achieved, or for reverse white for cost-effective shrink sleeve applications. These flexo stations can be retrofitted, providing our customers with greater flexibility as their business needs change.
The N730i includes Domino’s own in-house developed UV90 ink set with excellent fade resistance, achieving a maximum Blue Wool Scale of eight on certain substrates. It has excellent mechanical properties including abrasion and scratch resistance. It is 7-color CMYKOV + W and achieves 92% of the Pantone range. The UV90 white ink is commonly used by customers as a silk-screen replacement achieving an opacity of up to 76%. The Textures by Domino printing capability enables tactile three-dimensional label design effects to be created for greater shelf appeal.
