Epson to show flexibility of label printers at Packaging Innovations

On stand G23, Epson will demonstrate the ColorWorks series of desktop colour label inkjet printers alongside its award-winning portable LabelWorks labelling devices at Packaging Innovations 2017, taking place March 1-2 and the NEC.

The ColorWorks C7500 industrial printer with Wasatch RIP software is a high-speed solution with easy-to-use colour and workflow management capabilities. As a result, it is suitable for users who need to print continuous labels as well as those who traditionally use die-cut media. Printing at speeds up to 300mm/sec and producing labels at 600×1,200dpi resolution, the ColorWorks C7500 series products produce high-quality labels fast, for a range of applications including: food and beverage products; packaging and boxes; EU energy and GHS labels.

The ColorWorks C3500 printer is suitable for companies printing high-quality colour labels, tags and tickets. This inkjet device prints high-quality labels at up to 103mm/sec on a wide range of media, including matte and gloss-coated paper and synthetic media in a range of formats and sizes.

Visitors will also see several of Epson’s LabelWorks printers, including the new rugged LW-Z700FK, which makes its UK debut at the show. The LabelWorks range features durable handheld industrial label printers designed to boost productivity in demanding environments. Its Pick & Print function enables it to print the next label in a pre-set series when it detects that the user has ‘picked’ the previous label. Hands-free operation is made possible by an automatic cutter that cuts full or half size labels and magnets that can be used to hold the printer onto metal surfaces. It is extremely versatile, with the ability to print up to seven different tape widths from four to 24mm and up to nine metres long.

“We entered the on-demand label sector at Packaging Innovations in 2014 and have introduced new innovations every year since then to meet the diverse needs and applications of multiple markets. We are looking forward to showing our very latest models at this year’s show,” said David Spratt, sales manager, business systems, Epson UK.
