Continuous ink jet printing & coding

High-quality ink jet printing in a simple to use reliable package


Domino Printing is the undisputed industry leader in Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) coding and printers and have set the industry standard for print quality, reliability and versatility for over 30 years.

Domino Printing is the preferred supplier of many OEM's and multi-national companies, with Ax-Series inkjet printers selling in over 120 countries. 

How does CIJ work?

The world-leading SureStart Ax-Series printhead features an oscillatory ink droplet generator. This creates ultrasonic waves that apply pressure to the inkjet ink, breaking it up into individual droplets. When these droplets pass between the electrodes, the individual droplets are periodically charged. The amount of charge transferred to each droplet determines how much each droplet will be deflected relative to the stream of droplets passing between the viscovoltage electrodes, which determines the position of the droplet on the product.

Efficient use of ink

By positioning the droplets with a very small distance between them, a multitude of characters and markings are printed on the product as it passes by the print head. Ink droplets that are not displaced from the jet are returned to recirculation to repeat the process. This highly efficient use of ink jet ink enables the printing of many millions of characters with one liter of ink.

Why use CIJ?

Over the last 30 years, continuous inkjet technology has become the standard solution in more than 90 % of coding applications. It is chosen because it is simple to install and extremely versatile being able to print on virtually any surface. The Domino Ax-Series family of printers are recognized as the benchmark that all others are measured against due to high reliability and ease of use.

Possibilities and advantages of CIJ technology

Domino industrial inkjet printers can print easy-to-recognize and read text and graphics to enable product identification on glass, plastic, metal and rubber surfaces.

Wide range of benefits

  • high print speed that keeps up with the fastest production environments,
  • contactless printing that enables the coding of uneven and flexible surfaces,
  • superior print head technology provides better droplet placement and better print quality,
  • automatic self-cleaning of the print head. This is a guarantee of trouble-free operation of the print nozzle, even on frequent start-stop production lines.
