With DuraPrime™ Duo Ink Technology
Print both vibrant and waterproof labels on the same machine
The Afinia Label L501 is the first color label printer with Duo Ink Technology, designed to use both pigment and dye inks to create waterproof and highly vibrant labels. Powered by HP thermal inkjet technology, this dual-ink feature allows for a quick transition from vibrant and colorful prime, to ultra-durable and waterproof label applications with a simple printhead swap.
Pigment and Dye-based Labels
Pigment-based prints are highly resistant to the challenges of moisture, abrasion, sun-fading, and extreme temperature. This makes the L501 perfect for packaging requiring GHS compliance, as well as those with high exposure to moisture, such as beverages and bath products.
The L501’s dye-based prints are high-impact, colorful, and vibrant, making them ideal for prime labeling applications, such as in retail environments.
Enjoy the durability of pigment and the vibrancy of dye inks in the same printer. The L501’s ink interchangeability offers a level of versatility never before experienced in the label printing world.
Versatility meets Economy
Not only is the L501 one of the most versatile label printers on the market, it offers great value for small to mid-sized label applications. Separate CMYK ink cartridges contribute to a lower cost per label, since only colors that are empty need to be replaced.
The L501’s Optional Label Rewinder makes managing your labels easy, and allows you to conveniently rewind your labels right onto a 3″ core. It’s a great, recommended addition for companies that experience high usage or heavy duty jobs.
The rewinder can handle label sizes up to 8.5″ wide and rolls with up to 8.0″ outside diameter.
Once rewinding is complete, simply remove the core holder and completed roll.
