Domino Editor GT Windows® XP based controller
With a thousand installations, the latest generation Domino Editor GT Windows® XP based controller has become an industry standard. Editor GT combines data preparation tools with modular solutions for in-line ink jet printing of addresses, personalization, numbers, barcodes and 2D codes. This is combined with integrated machine control of your production line. Any combination of Domino’s range of ink jet printers is supported.
Key ink jet applications include:
- Addressing & Mailing
- Web fed printing
- Sheet fed printing
- Plastic card personalization
The Domino Editor GT meets the needs for addressing and personalization in applications including off/in-line mail table, bindery envelope/inserter and wrapping production lines, and also offers a range of additional options and upgrades in order to meet more advanced requirements.
Data files can be received from all commonly available database software packages, including standard ASCII data in both fixed length or comma separated formats. Simple vision tools help guide the operator through formatting and then confirming the data configuration prior to printing.
Mail Sort Control
Options include feeder inhibit, conveyor surge or kicker and stacker control. Stacker control includes options for:
- Bundles compensation
- Slow down
Standard interfaces are available for all leading stacker manufacturers, or the control tools of the controller can be used. When a product is diverted, a line stop can be generated, automatically reorder the replacement as a residue or reorder at the end of the production run.
A product can be tracked over multiple product transport / belt sections with backlash compensation, enabling matching in-line printing in multiple positions for applications such as inside /outside printing on bindery lines.
The controller can provide selective feeder control for insert and signature feeders. This enables a custom product to be produced based on demographic data held within the data file. There are interfaces for a number of leading bindery and wrapping line equipment suppliers.
The controller can integrate in-line with industry standard barcode, 2D, OCR or RFID readers providing a read, lookup and print functions as well as read and verify. Applications include complete re-confirmation of production integrity and pre-personalized item matching such as on-setting a plastic card with ink jet personalization and on a carrier sheet.
