| Primera Announces CX1200e Color Label Press
|American company Primera Technology, Inc., a leading manufacturer of specialty printers, has announced its new CX1200e Color Label Press.
The CX1200e Color Label Press delivers short-run, full-colour digital label printing at the breakthrough price of just € 18,995. Utilising one of the fastest and highest-resolution colour laser engines available, CX1200e delivers the quality, speed and flexibility of digital presses costing many times more.
CX1200e is the perfect solution for service bureaus and a broad range of manufacturers who need to print from just a few labels to tens of thousands of labels at a time. Digital label printing has many advantages versus other printing technologies, including the elimination of plates, set-up, make-ready and clean-up. With a digital press, simply import the images, apply a step-and-repeat with the included software, key in a quantity and press "Enter" on the keyboard.
Key features of CX1200e include:
• 305 mm unwind/rewind - print up to 381 m by 216 mm wide per run
• Up to 2400 dpi print resolution - for smoother gradations, sharper text and graphics
• Up to 5 m per minute print speed - the fastest in its class
• Super high-yield toner cartridges - rated for 16,500 pages*
"Until now, a digital press with these capabilities could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars," said Mark D. Strobel, Primera's vice president of sales and marketing. "CX1200e, priced at under € 20,000, brings an entirely new level of price, performance and profits to short-run digital label printing."
Primera's PTPrint™ 8.0 RIP Software for Windows XP/Vista® is included. This powerful yet easy-to-use software application is used to import label designs, prepare them for printing, and apply colour management tools. CX1200e includes Pantone®-approved colour support.
A wide variety of substrates can be printed on CX1200e, including matte, semi-gloss and glossy laser plain papers, white and clear polyesters and PVC. Large 305 mm maximum diameter input and output rolls maximise efficiency. The built-in electronic tensioning control system, a first for a digital press in this category, delivers perfectly-wound output rolls that are ready for off-line finishing.
CX1200e is available from Primera Technology (for USA and Canada), Primera Europe, Primera Asia Pacific and from Authorised Partners in over 85 countries.
