Colour label printer
06 April 2017
Primera Technology, a leading manufacturer of speciality printers, has introduced the LX1000e colour label printer which is based on the company’s LX2000e colour label printer and designed for applications that need extremely durable labels.
LX1000e is Primera’s entry-level unit using pigment ink. It offers a number of features, including:
- Low Cost Per Label. Large, separate ink tanks for cyan, magenta, yellow and black keep the cost per label low. LX1000e’s cost per label is said to be among the lowest of all desktop colour inkjet printers currently available near its price.
- Fast Print Speeds of up to 101mm (4”) per second. While many desktop label printers boast of fast print speeds, Primera believes most of those quoted print speeds are unusable for producing quality labels. LX1000e’s print speed of up to 101mm (4”) per second produces professional-looking labels without sacrificing print quality.
“We are excited to add LX1000e to Primera’s complete range of desktop colour label printers,” said Andreas Hoffmann, managing director of Primera’s EMEA office Primera Technology Europe. “Primera has been known for over a decade as an innovator and a leader in this market. LX1000e continues that tradition by offering a printer with an extremely low cost of ownership, leading performance specifications and the day-in, day-out reliability that has become a trademark of Primera’s colour label printer products.”
Typical applications include product labels for coffee, wine, bakery, confectionary, meat, cheese and hundreds of other specialty and gourmet foods. Industrial applications include full-colour box-end labels, safety and warning labels, Kanban and inventory labels and tags and much more. LX1000e can also be used for private labelling, test marketing, pre-press proofing and retail shelf labelling.
Printer drivers are included for Windows 7/10, along with Bartender Ultralite and NiceLabel SE Primera Edition Software (both for Windows) to format label designs, add barcodes, QR codes, etc. Most other popular graphic design programs for Windows can be used to design and print labels.
Qualified substrates include many different inkjet label materials, including all Primera Genuine certified inkjet materials, for example Primera Poly White Gloss, Primera Clear Gloss Eco and Primera White Matte. Primera paper labels are also available in high-gloss, semi-gloss, matte and vintage finishes.
LX1000e is priced at €2695 (MSRP). Primera will welcome it in early May 2017 and as usual it will be available from all official resellers and distributors worldwide. Primera Europe continues to offer 24 months warranty (the standard 12 months plus additional 12 months for free upon product registration on its website) for all European units.
