DuraFast Label Company Now Selling Afinia L501 Color Label Printer with Duo Ink Technology
The Afinia L501 color label printer accepts pigment and dye inks, allowing it to print both industrial GHS labels and prime product labels.
"Traditionally, there are two types of labels businesses need to print," Khalifa explained. "Prime product labels, which need to be photo quality for branding, sales, and marketing purposes, and industrial labels, which need to be extremely durable. Some industrial labels must comply with GHS BS5609 standards which require the utmost in durability including long-term immersion in seawater. These two distinct label types require the use of two different types of ink: dye-based inks for prime labels and pigment-based inks for durable industrial labels. Until recently, this meant using two different color label printers."
The Afinia L501 color label printer uses both types of ink – perfect for businesses that need to print both prime labels and industrial / GHS labels, he explained.
"This is a versatile color label printer. You can start by printing high resolution, photo quality labels like wine bottle labels, craft beer labels, coffee and tea labels, and so on and then swap out the print head and inks to print durable industrial labels, GHS BS5609 chemical labels, barcodes, carton box labels, and labels for products that will be exposed to moisture, UV light, chemicals, or oils."
The Afinia L501 is the first color label printer to use DuraPrime™ Duo Ink Technology. It also uses HP Thermal Inkjet print technology, the same print technology used in Primera Technology's LX1000 and LX2000 plus VIPColor's VP495. These printers produce the same print quality and speed; however, the Afinia L501 leads with the lowest ink cost compared to the others. After purchasing a printer, the ink cost per label is its highest operating cost, which many customers don't realize until they begin using it. Annual ink costs can exceed the printer cost, depending on the number of labels produced each year. Compare ink costs for these printers at www.DuraFastLabel.com.
DuraFast Label Company currently sells the Afinia L501 for $3595 (dye or pigment) or $3795 which includes both dye and pigment inks at www.DuraFastLabel.com: Plus, when you use discount code L501, you will get $200 in free labels with the printer purchase.
