It is in the areas of IoT and cloud computing that Domino is shaping Industry 4.0. Through new technologies, operators can use coding equipment and systems as part of a singular intelligent factory operation.
Domino's iTech-x platform, available on both of their inkjet technologies collects a vast array of data on printer operation – from the ink and makeup levels of their Ax-Series CIJ range through to wear and tear on components, this information is then sent up to Domino's Cloud databases. insignia's Technical Support team uses the collated data to remotely diagnose faults and proactively identify potential future faults, ensuring maximum uptime for our customers. Additionally, printer metrics that contribute to the printer's Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) are monitored remotely, providing customers with the tools to improve their production. This data is available for customers too, accessible from any device connected to the internet. This provides our customers with the freedom to work away from their factory with full visibility of their working system.
Connecting coding and marking machines to the Domino Cloud means that keeping them working no longer requires an engineer to physically be at the machine. Instead, potential issues can be identified, and faults diagnosed in advance, ensuring optimal production uptime.
Domino's Ax-Series CIJ printers can automatically monitor ink and makeup levels, adjusting them depending on environmental conditions so that it is optimised for the printhead. Additionally, Domino's Gx-Series TIJ printers robust printheads are equipped with LED status indication for easy fluid replenishment and automatic ink perimeters to ensure error-free coding. The intelligence built into Domino's inkjet printers ensures high-quality codes are printed, thus reducing the likelihood of recalled products and unplanned downtime needed to clean and adjust printers.
