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. 

Why use CIJ?

Over the last 30 years continuous ink jet technology has become the standard solution in more than 90 % of coding application. 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.

How it works?

The world-leading Ax-Series SureStart print head contains an ink drop-generator with a vibrating drive rod.

This creates ultrasonic pressure waves in the ink jet ink, breaking it up into individual droplets. When these droplets fall between a set of electrodes, individual droplets are intermittently charged. The size of the charge given to each droplet determines how far it will be deflected out of the stream when passing through the deflector plates. This determines its placement on the product.

By placing a collection of these droplets close together, a variety of characters are printed as the product passes the print head. Ink droplets not deflected out of the stream are re-circulated to repeat the process. This is a highly efficient use of ink jet ink allowing many millions of characters to be printed from a litre of ink.

Key benefits:

Domino Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) printers can print easy to read text and graphics to enable product identification on substrates from food, glass and plastic to metal and rubber. They offer a wide range of benefits:

  • High speed printing that keeps up with the fastest production environments,
  • Non-contact printing that enables uneven and flexible surfaces to be coded,
  • Superior print head technology provides better drop placement and print quality,
  • Automatic self-cleaning print head guarantees that the print nozzle stays unobstructed, even on frequent start-stop production lines.
