Improvements extend to the Afinia L502 Color Label Printer toolbox, allowing for increased control, including ‘Pause’ and ‘Cut’ functions. Firmware upgrades can also now be more easily performed.
The Afinia L502 with Pigment and Dye Inks has been tested and certified to produce BS 5609-compliant and GHS (Globally Harmonized System) inkjet 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 saltwater for a period of 90 days.
“The L502 is an example of Afinia’s dedication to continuing to innovate and improve digital label printing for organizations of any size and need,″ said Mike Atkins, National Sales Manager at Afinia Label. “The Afinia L502 offers ease of use, high-end print quality, water- and chemical-resistant pigment inks, and a robust construction ensuring the durability of the printer and the printed label.″
In addition to its high-durability pigment inks, the L502 is compatible with dye inks that give labels maximum color vibrancy. The L502 is best suited for small- to medium-sized print runs. It can print large labels with a media width up to 8.65 inches (219.7 mm) wide. The L502 uses separate CMYK ink cartridges that contribute to a lower cost per label and reduce ink waste.
