Afinia, a manufacturer and distributor of industrial color label printing and finishing equipment, has announced the release of the company’s L502 color label printer.
The Afinia Label L502 color label printer produces vivid, full-color labels at up to 8.5″ wide using interchangeable pigment- and dye-based ink sets. Converters can print efficiently and reliably with the L502’s proven HP Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology, claims the company.
The heavy-duty construction of the L502 color label printer includes an all-steel industrial cover, a window for print bed visibility and status monitoring and improved sensors, which allow for higher compatibility with specialty media such as reflective metallic material. It is also available in a fanfold-compatible version (F502) with the same build quality.
Improvements extend to the L502 color label printer toolbox, allowing for increased control, including Pause and Cut functions. Firmware upgrades can also now be easily performed.
The L502 has been tested and certified to produce BS 5609-compliant and GHS (Globally Harmonized System) labels, which helps keep chemical manufacturers in compliance with packaging and transportation requirements.
This testing evaluates the permanence of the print through abrasion and submersion in salt water for a period of 90 days.
