Afinia Label Announces the New L502 Color Label Printer

The L502 Color Label Printer includes improved firmware with 2x faster printing than our previous model, all-steel industrial construction, and upgraded toolbox features. Additionally, the L502’s pigment ink has been certified for BS 5609 compliance.

All-steel industrial design, improved toolbox functionality, 2x faster printing*, and durable pigment inks make the L502 extremely rugged and versatile.

The heavy-duty construction of the L502 color label printer includes an all-steel industrial cover, with a window for print bed visibility and status monitoring. It also includes improved sensors which allow for greater compatibility with specialty media, such as reflective metallic material. In addition to the standard roll-fed model, the L502 is also available in a fanfold-compatible version (F502) with the same build quality and feature set.

Improvements extend to the L502 Color Label Printer toolbox, allowing for increased control, including ‘Pause’ and ‘Cut’ functions. Firmware upgrades can also now be more 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.

“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 L502 offers ease of use, high-end print quality, water- and chemical-resistant pigment inks, and a robust construction ensuring 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.
