Tom Erickson, vice president of manufacturing at The Label Printers, has been with the company for more than 18 years. Six years ago in an interview and video shot at his facility, Tom said “We like the Domino K600i because it offers us increased uptime. With the automated features such as the cleaning and purging system, we are able to produce our work more efficiently.”

The Domino K600i is a highly successful digital UV inkjet printer with proven, reliable technology in more than 350 installations worldwide. It has been a tried and true “money-making machine” for customers for several years. Integrated typically on a flexo label press or rewinder, the Domino K600i allows label printer/converters to print variable data such as sequential numbering, bar codes, QR codes and more. Typical applications of these printed codes are to track product throughout the logistics supply chain; traceability for food safety, brand protection, or product authentication; shopper engagement and feedback tools/programs; loyalty, gaming, and promotional opportunities; or meeting requirements for state, federal, or global mandates.

Back to the Future

Fast-forward to 2019. Much time has passed since Tom made that statement in 2013 regarding his company’s first Domino K600i, so Domino caught up with him to ask about his level of satisfaction over the past six years. And what we learned is that when things are going well, they just keep getting better. Domino documented its visit at The Label Printers in a quick one-minute video as Tom provides an update:

“Today we are running three K600is. The Label Printers has been in business for 50 years. We service the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, anti-counterfeiting and security industries, and more. Domino provides us with dependability, the company’s service has been outstanding, the reliability has been outstanding, leading us to a lot of uptime… enabling us to literally produce tens of billions of labels. And we hope to continue the partnership with Domino for the foreseeable future.”
