Five high-capacity 250mL ink cartridges (CYMKK) offer an extremely low ink cost per label.

The L901 is the newest printer to join Afinia Label’s family of label printing and finishing solutions. The L901 gives companies the ability to run a full-color digital label printer in line with a finishing or application system without complications related to mid-job printhead maintenance.

“The Afinia Label L901’s redesigned printhead servicing and cleaning station allows this printer to be run in line with finishing equipment, label applicators, label dispensers and unwind/rewind units,” said Mike Atkins, National Sales Manager for Afinia Label. “This new design eliminates the need to cut the web in order to clean or cap the printhead, making it ideal for in-plant integration with other machines. The L901 gives users the ability to print and apply labels in full color, with variable data, on demand. This, combined with full color, photo-quality resolution, high print speed, and low cost of operation, make the L901 the perfect color label printer for medium- to high-volume labeling applications.”

For print houses, the L901 helps offload smaller jobs and proofing, eliminating the need to tie up large flexo or digital presses for those tasks. Additionally, the L901’s user interface was designed to be intuitive and easy to use, so there is no need for a specialized technician.

“Many companies would like the ability to automatically print and apply labels on the production line,” said Atkins. “Some achieve this now with single-color thermal label printers, but they are limited to simple text or barcodes. The L901 offers a new and better way to print and apply full-color labels on demand. This could eliminate the need to purchase pre-printed labels, which greatly improves productivity while driving down packaging costs.”
