Label Power have released the Primera LX200 Barcode Label and Tag printer in Australia. The new LX200 utilises the latest monochrome high-speed inkjet printing technology. With 1200 dpi print resolution, this innovative printer has almost six times as many dots per inch as most thermal transfer bar code printers.
The LX200 is capable of printing onto labels, tickets, tags and coupons for a wide range of applications, including those in which higher levels of security, confidentiality and durability are required. The LX200 uses an inkjet print head instead of ribbons.
Thermal transfer ribbons leave behind a record of everything that has been printed. In many applications such as healthcare or government, secure collection and disposal of ribbons is required in order to meet confidentiality and secrecy requirements.
The LX200 is shipped with label creation layout software called NiceLabel SE for Primera which allows the user to design labels. All popular bar codes are supported, including linear and, optionally, 2D bar codes such as PDF417. Fonts as small as 2 points are highly legible and perfectly formed. The LX200 is also compatible with all popular Windows Barcoding, ID Cards and design programs. An additional benefit of the LX200 is that ink replenishment is fast and easy. Just snap out the used printhead and snap in a new one.
Mark D. Strobel, Primera's vice president of sales and marketing said that for almost two decades, thermal transfer printers have dominated the bar code printer market. The new inkjet-based LX200 can be used for many applications.
Inkjet printing has been accepted for virtually all other mainstream applications. Mark D. Strobel also said that with its high-resolution, photo-quality printing, fast print speeds and virtually 100% scannable bar codes, there's every reason why inkjet printing should be a part of this market, too.
Both pigmented and dye-based black inks are available. Pigmented ink works best with plain, uncoated papers for the most economical cost-per-label. Dye-based ink requires glossy, coated paper that costs more but produces the ideal print quality with high-resolution photos and 2D bar codes.
James Malone, Label Power Managing Director stated that Label Power are accepting orders for this new and exciting product which is supported with a wide range of ex stock label sizes in Gloss and White Synthetic plus a Clear Synthetic stock is also available now. Label Power have trained labelling consultants resident in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to help customers to select the right Barcode or Colour Printing System for business needs.
