Primera ships label maker
Primera Technology has announced its LX200 Label Printer, capable of 1200 dpi printing at high speeds. The label printer uses inkjet printing, differing from competitors' more common and slower thermal transfer technology. It can print labels, tickets, tags and coupons in linear and 2D bar codes like PDF417. The inkjet nature of the printer offers better security, leaving no records behind after printing as thermal printers do, making the LX200 a good choice for healthcare and government applications.
The new label printer can use both pigment inks, better for plain, uncoated papers, and dye inks, for glossy, coated papers. The LX200 prints water- and scratch-resistant labels that can be printed at up to 4.25" wide. The label printer is available now for $895.
