Traditionally, short run colour labels have been produced on A4 sheets using laser or inkjet printers. Not ideal, as they can have a tendency to jam or worst case, peel off and stick to something critical when travelling through the printer.
Epson have addressed the problem with a range of full colour inkjet label printers. Using tried and tested Durabrite pigment inks and print resolution of 720 x 360 dpi you can produce high quality product labels in any quantity you want.
Epson can also supply a range of die-cut labels on plain matte stock, gloss and polythene wipe clean options for food and medical use, in widths up to 112mm with a print width of 104mm.
The entry level Epson ColourWorks TM C3400 label printer is a three colour model partnered with the more expensive four colour Epson ColourWorks TM-C3500 label printer. Print speeds are impressive at 92 and 103mm per second respectively. A variation on the range is the Epson ColourWorks TF-C3400-LT. This label printer features a built in control board and large touch screen so you can import jobs directly in to the printer. Ideal for use in medical environments for patient wristband and drug labeling.
We then move on to the industrial grade Epson ColorWorks TM-C7500 which moves up a gear for production volumes. Print speed ramps up to 300mm per second, resolution to 1200 x 600dpi and production volumes are handled by impressive 294ml ink cartridges.
Finally, the Epson GP-C831 is a heavy duty machine taking 203mm wide sprocketed label stock. With a 5760 x 1400dpi resolution this printer is approved for GHS chemical labels. Enhanced connectivity – usb, parallel and network ports, let you print from a variety of platforms.
