HEALTH AND SAFETY

INTRODUCTION

Domino supplies Safety Data Sheets (SDS) giving specific safety information with each of its ink, make-up and wash fluids. There are also warnings on each container. The following notes are for general guidance only.

Basic Requirements

When used correctly, printing inks do not cause problems. However, everybody using them should be familiar with the appropriate safety standards and be aware of the precautions that should be taken. The following are basic requirements:

• Proper standards of industrial practice relating to cleanliness and tidiness must be maintained.

• Inks and their containers must be stored and handled with care.

• Do not smoke or allow naked flames (or other sources of ignition) in the vicinity of any inks or solvents as this is highly dangerous.

• All who come into contact with inks must be properly instructed in their use.

Directions for safe working practices vary according to the environment. The following are broad principles so that necessary precautions may be taken:

• Contact with the mouth must be avoided. Therefore eating, drinking or smoking, or any personal habits or actions which may transfer ink to the mouth, must be avoided.

• Contact with the eyes must be avoided. Suitable eye protection must always be worn whenever there is any risk of splashing or misting. If ink does get into the eyes, first aid treatment is to flood the affected eye for 15 minutes with saline solution, (or clean water if saline solution is not available), taking care not to allow the water to run into an unaffected eye. Medical aid must be obtained immediately.

• Most inks contain solvents which may injure the skin. Good working practice must always be employed and risk assessments carried out. Safety Data Sheets are available that give advice on personal protective equipment. Most gloves only offer limited and short term exposure protection and must be changed after any splashing and on a frequent basis.

• Many inks contain materials which vaporise easily and can be inhaled. Good ventilation and extraction is necessary.

• Any used cleaning materials, e.g. rags, paper wipes, are a potential fire hazard. They must be collected for safe disposal after use.

• After exposure to ink, all possible traces must be washed off as soon as possible at the nearest washing facility.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

• It is possible to control the printer remotely. If operated in this manner it is vital that the remote UI is disconnected before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance on the printer.

Certain inks are allowed for use where they can be in indirect contact with food. In these cases, the following precautions must be observed in addition to those appropriate to hygiene:

• The inks must only be used in printers supplied from new for use with these inks. Any repairs and replacements must use genuine, new and unused spare parts.

• The inks must not be used in printers which have previously been used, at any time, for any other purpose.

Storage

Printing inks must be stored in well-ventilated buildings, in areas set aside for the purpose, chosen for safety in case of fire. Materials based on volatile, flammable solvents must be stored in accordance with local regulations.

Fire Risk

For an electrical fire, do not use water. If water must be used, such as in the case of a Nitro-cellulose ink fire (see below) the power MUST BE REMOVED first.

Many inks contain Nitro-cellulose as the binder and remain highly flammable when dry. Observe all warnings given on the machine and the following safety instructions:

• If there has been an accumulation of dried ink, do not use metal scrapers to remove it, as they can produce sparks.

• If dry Nitro-cellulose based ink ignites, it will generate its own oxygen and can only be extinguished by lowering the temperature with water.

• If a Nitro-cellulose fire occurs, ENSURE THAT THE ELECTRICAL POWER IS IMMEDIATELY REMOVED FROM THE PRINTER BEFORE water is used to extinguish the fire.

Fire risk is a most important consideration where printing inks are stored and used. The degree of fire hazard will vary considerably from one type of ink or wash to another.

Water-based inks will not burn, although inks based on water-alcohol mixtures may burn if there is sufficient alcohol present. Prolonged exposure of water-based systems to high temperatures may evaporate the water to give a flammable residue.

Solvent-based inks offer a greater degree of hazard depending on the particular solvent or solvent combination. When there is a particular hazard the appropriate information is given on the SDS.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

The printers place small electrostatic charges on the ink drops used for printing. In most circumstances, such as when they arrive at the print surface, these electrostatic charges are either conducted away or cannot accumulate. However, during maintenance, print drops may be collected in a container, such as a beaker. It is essential that this container is made of conducting material and is securely connected to ground/earth. The electrostatic charges will then be safely conducted to ground/earth.

If there is a fire, there is a likelihood that dangerous fumes will arise from printing inks. For this reason ink must be stored where it can be reached quickly by the fire fighting service, and where it will not spread beyond the store.

Spillages and Disposal

WARNING:

Some dried inks are highly flammable. Clean up all ink spillages immediately. Do not allow the ink to dry or allow any build-up of dried ink spills.

Spillages must be cleaned up as soon as possible with the appropriate solvent materials and with regard to the safety of personnel. Care must be taken to prevent spillages or residue from cleaning up entering drains or sewage systems.

Inks and associated fluids are materials which conduct electricity. Therefore, power to the printer must be switched off while spillages inside the printer cabinet are being cleaned up.

Printing inks and associated fluids must not be treated as ordinary waste. They must be disposed of using approved methods according to local regulations.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Gutter

Each printed character consists of a dot matrix made up of lines, or strokes, of ink drops. The ink drops in each stroke are spaced apart by electronic deflection and the strokes are spaced apart by the movement of the print surface under the head.

Inside the print head, ink is supplied under pressure to the drop generator, and emerges through a small nozzle as a very fine jet. The drop generator contains a drive rod which creates ultrasonic pressure waves in the ink, making the jet break up into a stream of separate drops shortly after leaving the nozzle.

The break-up is adjusted to occur within the charge electrode, where each ink drop is given an electrostatic charge by putting a voltage onto the charge electrode as the drop breaks off. The size of the charge on the ink drop depends upon the voltage on the charge electrode.

The ink drops then pass through the electrostatic field set up between two high voltage deflector plates. The direction of flight of each charged ink drop is deflected by an amount dependent upon the size of the charge.

Ink drops not required for printing are not given electrostatic charges and are collected in the gutter.

The print head components are mounted on a rigid chassis, with a fully enclosed wire box containing the connections between the print head and conduit wiring.

The print head slides into a protective holster and is locked into place by two holster retaining clips. The holster is mounted in the printing position and contains precision guide rails to ensure that the print head always returns to exactly the same position when removed and replaced.

DESCRIPTION

CABINET

The cabinet structure is made substantially of moulded glass filled nylon with doors to two separate compartments.

The front facing door gives access to the ink system. The door opens downwards and has retainers to allow the door to open fully and be unsupported. Operations such as replacing cartridges and the Qube are carried out in this area.

At the rear of the printer is a stainless steel door which gives access to the electrical components of the printer. These include the power supply, ink interface PCB, SBC, PEC and the pump and cooling fan. The door opens via side mounted hinges and is secured by a screw catch.

The top of the cabinet is angled and contains the printer control panel.

For maximum stability the cabinet should be mounted on a a stand. Domino can provide a choice of two dedicated models - a standard stand and one with cabinet storage (see PART 8 : Options and Accessories).

The conduit serving the print head is located at the base at the back of the cabinet and all external connections are located on the rear door.

The cabinet is fan cooled by filtered air drawn into the electronics compartment through a vent in the left hand (when viewed from the front) handling recess. This air is then circulated to the ink compartment and exits through a vent situated in the right hand handling recess. It is important that these areas are not obstructed.

Start-up Procedure

DESCRIPTION

i-Tech INK SYSTEM

General

CAUTION:

Do not switch off the printer before the flush cycle is complete.

The printer contains a reservoir of printing ink located in the Qube. As ink is used for printing, it is replaced by fresh ink from a disposable cartridge.

The ink has a solvent base which (like all solvents) is subject to evaporation, and this, in turn, affects ink viscosity. The electronic system, therefore, checks the viscosity regularly and keeps it within carefully controlled limits by adding make-up, supplied from a reservoir, which is also supplied by a disposable cartridge.

The ink and make-up levels are monitored by level sensors. If the ink cartridge is not replaced and the ink falls below a defined level, the printer switches off. However, if the make-up reservoir is empty the machine can still be used, but the start-stop performance will be impaired. If make-up is not replaced it will cause the ink viscosity to increase, and print quality to deteriorate.

The printer also indicates when the ink or make-up levels are too high.

When the ink jet is switched off the printer automatically flushes make-up through the print head to prevent the print head becoming dirty with ink residue.

CAUTION: Do not block or obstruct the vent.

Intelligent Ink Life

The number of hours the ink jet can run before the Qube requires replacement is dependent on the rate of print usage, and can change as the ink usage changes. The i-Tech ink system uses the jet-on hours to calculate the expected Qube life, and display the calculated replacement date. Prior to Qube replacement the levels of ink in the Qube will be deliberately run down to minimise ink wastage.

Ink and Make-Up Filters

The Domino i-Tech ink system incorporates the main ink and gutter filters within the body of the Qube. These filters are therefore automatically replaced during routine Qube replacement. In addition, Qube replacement simply involves unplugging the old Qube and plugging in the new one with minimal down time.

DESCRIPTION

Venting

The ink reservoir in the Qube and make-up reservoir are connected to a vent which allows for variations in the ink level and for air drawn in by the ink and make-up cartridges. It also allows air drawn in through the gutter to be released. These air movements can result in the emission of solvent fumes and an evaporation loss. To reduce the evaporation loss a peltier is fitted to cool and condense any escaping vapour. The resulting liquid is passed back into the make-up reservoir.

Wake-up Mode

Note:

The Wake-up Mode is a selectable option and is available only with a Service key.

When the jet is switched off, the software controls the printer in a wake-up mode. This operates the printer (pump) for approximately 2-3 minutes after a selected interval (between 10 and 720 minutes), to stir the pigment in the ink and to maintain the correct viscosity.

PRINTER CONTROL

The printer is switched on by pressing the power button on the front of the cabinet for 2 seconds. This supplies power to the whole printer and after a short period, control of the printer is transferred to the front panel. Alternatively the start/stop button can be used, which will initialise the printer to a ready to print status.

Control Panel

There are two types of interface available, the SVGA (Touchscreen) or QVGA. The functionality and layout of these are the same, however the operation differs, please refer below for details.

SVGA (Touchscreen)

There are three permanent buttons on the membrane of an SVGA printer, these are the Power, Start/Stop and Alert buttons. These are shown below. All other functions and buttons are available on the Touchscreen.

Introduction

For customers looking for increased productivity from their industrial coders and printers, Domino has developed QuickStep - the most intuitive user interface on the market. With QuickStep, training, set up times and coding errors are all reduced.

Customer Benefits

• Less operator training and supervision. All buttons in QuickStep are clearly labelled, eliminating doubt when operating and helping to eliminate errors.

• Increased performance. QuickStep is simple and intuitive to use and is structured so all main functions can be accessed with just 2 button presses. QuickStep will limit functionality depending on the level of the user.

Operator Level

QuickStep has a dedicated Operator Level that streamlines the functions available and eliminates opportunities for human error At Operator Level, QuickStep will allow:

• The viewing of messages and their transfer to the printer

• The entering of variable data into the messages (if authorised)

• The viewing and acknowledging of alerts

• The viewing of printer and job data

• Changing consumables.
