THE ability to move all small and medium sized labeling production worries in-house is now possible thanks to Label Power and the newly released Primera LX800 industrial-grade inkjet printer.
The LX800 is an ingenious new industrial-grade labeling and variable image printing solution that offers 4800 dots per inch resolution, full colour label capacity, bar coding and overprinting, all in one.
Offering all of the same features as a thermal transfer printer and off-site pre-printed label in one, the LX800 is capable of printing everything from small to medium volume runs, continuous high speed label printing and has the ability to meet even the most demanding production requirements.
Until now, in-house colour label printers were prohibitively expensive and were not seen as a cost effective labelling solution for product identification needs.
However, with the release of the LX800, manufacturers can produce full-colour labels, and only print as many as they need at any given time.
The LX800 features crisp high-definition barcodes, longer lasting full colour labels, a variety of media stocks and the ability to link to internal databases and networks.
It has been designed as an industrial-grade labeling solution that is capable of printing full colour labels and tags; including barcodes and human readable data; for everything from primary products, cartons, to product packages.
The LX800 offers 4800dpi resolution ensuring that full colour graphics, photos and illustrations are printed to the highest quality every time.
With five built-in print resolutions the printer allows the user the combination of both the print quality and the speed that is best suited for the individual application.
With the LX800 the user can mix any combination of text, graphics, photos and illustrations to create, and re-create, full colour professional labels and tags.
In addition, any font already installed on the linked or networked PC can be printed, giving the users maximum flexibility and creativity in label and tag designs.
The minimum label size offered with the LX800 is 1.5 inches wide, up to a full 8-inch wide drum or petrochemical label, and as long as 24 inches.
The LX800 has been developed with advanced throughput speeds in mind and can print at approximately 2 inches (51mm) per second for black, 1.5 inches (38mm) per second for colour + black, and 10 inches per second feed rate.
The user has the ability to print just one label at a time or thousands a day.
The LX800 however has the ability to print on to many different stocks, including special high-gloss, matt and semi-gloss labels.
The special high-gloss label stock from Label Power is water-resistant making the LX800 ideal for refrigerated primary product and retail labeling, primary or secondary labels, or any substrate that may be exposed to light condensation, rain, high-humidity, and even snow.
The LX800 is also suitable for printing on to tags, synthetics, continuous forms, transparent polyesters and low-tack adhesive materials ensuring that it is suitable for most applications and industries.
The LX800 printer is supplied with two different ink types; dye and pigment.
