AFINIA Ships Fastest-in-Class Desktop Label Printer

AFINIA, a division of Microboards Technology LLC, has begun shipping the L801 Label Printer. Based on revolutionary printing technology from Memjet , the L801 is positioned to bridge the gap between high speed and desktop printing applications by putting variable, full-color print in the hands of a wide range of users.

The L Series print solution features industry-leading cost of ownership and high impact output. The L801 offers full color printing at 60 ft / minute, 8.5” width and 1600 dpi resolution. The L Series is ideally suited for high-resolution, vibrant, full-color label printing to short- and mid-run inventory and product identification applications at an ultra-low cost-of-ownership. The L801 has an integrated unwinder and holds 1.25 liters of ink (CMYKK) to support large runs. The product also features easy access doors for fast, simple media and ink replacement.

Afinia selected Memjet’s color printing technology because of its industry-changing nature. Memjet’s revolutionary 8.5-inch wide printhead (pictured) uses waterfall technology and with 70,400 jets, it literally shoot millions of ink drops per second.

“We are pleased to see the market reacting so quickly to our new offering,” says Aaron Pratt, Vice President of Marketing. “We have carefully refined and tested this solution. We are sure that label houses and in-plant graphics customers will have a terrific product experience right out of the box.”

“We’re excited to partner with Afinia on the L801 for the labels printing market, said Jeff Bean, Vice President of Brand & Communications for Memjet. “The ability to print blazing-fast color in today’s product labeling, branding, and logistics marketplaces is critical. The L801 fills labeling needs of these markets with a compact and cost-effective desktop solution.

The L801 is designed for label houses, brand owners, and logistics applications. The unit is disruptively priced at under $10,000. The L801 Label Printer will be shown at the upcoming Graph Expo and Pack Expo shows in September. Product demonstrations can also be arranged through Afinia’s national network of authorized resellers; call 888-215-3966 to set up an appointment.
