Wound care products are produced at Mölnlycke Health Care in Oldham in the Northwest of England. The company has gone through a significant expansion phase in recent years, and the production portfolio now includes hundreds of products. Every production line handles a wide range of products which have different shapes, sizes and substrates.

New challenges

A number of customer orders are processed during each shift on every production line at Mölnlycke, and the volumes also vary. The diversity of substrates continues to raise new challenges. The company has been using the Domino A300 continuous inkjet printer in another production area for more than six years now. Domino claims that more than 100,000 A-series printers have been installed, making them one of the highest selling inkjet printers in the world. Mölnlycke has now upgraded its coding systems by acquiring a Domino-G series thermal inkjet printer.

With a resolution of 600 dpi and print speeds up to 300 m/min, this system solution is designed to deliver high quality results on an expanding range of product substrates in a market where customer expectations continue to increase. Models G100, G200 and G300 are the ideal choice for printing machine-readable codes including bar codes and 2D data matrix codes as well as multiple-line text, logos and graphics.
