Afinia Label, Chanhassen, Minn., launched its L502 color label printer, designed to produce vivid, full-color labels at up to 8.5 inches wide using interchangeable pigment- and dye-based ink sets.
The L502’s HP Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology allows for over 2 times faster printing, as compared to the original L501 printer. The heavy-duty construction includes an all-steel industrial cover, with a window for print bed visibility and status monitoring. It also includes improved sensors for greater compatibility with specialty media, such as reflective metallic material.
In addition to the standard roll-fed model, theL502 come in a fanfold-compatible version (F502) with the same build quality and feature set. Improvements extend to the toolbox, allowing for increased control, including Pause and Cut functions.
The L502 is certified to produce BS 5609-compliant and GHS (Globally Harmonized System) labels.
