IPACK-IMA PREVIEW Primetec Srl is launching in Italy its new color printer for small-to-medium runs of reel loaded label stock: Primera CX1000e. Its distinguishing feature: it is the first laser machine capable of printing reels of pre-cut paper.
Primera Technology Inc. has devised an innovatory laser printer, available from January also in the EMEA area, and for its official launch in Italy it has chosen Ipack-Ima (Hall 24, stand B94). It is called CX1000e and has been designed to produce reels of labels of professional quality in short to medium runs. Its peculiarity, that makes it totally unique and that sets its apart from the Primera CX1200e, is that it can also print reels of precut labels. Primetec Srl, commercial partner for the Italian market of Primera Technology Europe, highlights its functional and economic advantages.
The secret? No trimmings
The true new feature of this machine lies in its use of non trimmed reels of labels, that have only been precut. The process of removing the die and the separation of the tracks occurs later on, via the special bench mounted MX-12.
This feature enables the obtainment of labels printed right up to the edge, without excess toner dirtying the product or damaging the print circuits; as well as that they guarantee the perfect stability of the label under the melter.
«The new CX1000e – Primera vice president of marketing and sales Mark D. Strobel can thus state – stands as a best-in-class for producers and distributors who want to conveniently attain greater quantities and varieties of top grade labels independently with savings in both time and money».
Primera CX1000e has in fact been designed and made to allow both small firms and large companies to produce small-to-medium-sized runs of labels on their own and, aboveall, with the flexibility needed to respond to the frequent demands for change dictated by the market. Managing label printing operations inhouse also enables a reduction in storage costs at the same time eliminating wastage.
The sectors of application are numerous, including food and beverage as well as cosmetics and personal care, chemicals and flower cultivation… as well as naturally in labeling ones own products.
Quality and versatility
With a resolution that reaches 4800 dpi thanks to PTPrint™ 8.0, and a speed of 5 m/min, Primera CX1000e is fully slotted in the full-color professional printer sector.
Like the Primera CX1200e, the Primera CX1000e works without problems on a variety of media, from plain to glossy paper, uncoated-, embossed- and laid paper, on ribbed paper for wine, oil and food in general and on white and transparent polyester. The manufacturer has also tested the effectiveness and quality on a new selection of eco-friendly substrates, made up 100% of recycled material.
The labels printed with Primera CX1000e are waterproof and scratch and abrasion resistant and, thanks to the quality of toner, they are resistant to UV and weathering in general, so they can be used outdoors. Primetech ensures prompt delivery of consumables and the most common label formats; they also supply customised formats.
