Memjet Color Label Printer

Afinia’s L801 Digital Color Label Printer is a Memjet label printer that uses Memjet technology, allowing you to print high-impact, full-color output at up to 60 feet per minute (18 meters per minute). Memjet’s stationary “waterfall” printhead technology allows paper to move quickly through the printer, while maintaining excellent print resolution.

Digital printing has grown significantly and digital label presses are becoming more common in “traditional” print shops.

High Quality & Resolution

Using the Afinia L801 industrial color label printer, you can print at up to 1600 x 1600 dpi for vivid, eye-catching labels. By using CMYKK, the L801 digital color label printer offers exceptional color and rich blacks, giving you the ability to print with better contrast.

Low Cost of Ownership

Afinia Label Memjet label printers allow you to save on consumables. The L801 holds 1.25 liters of ink to support large runs, and offers an industry-leading low ink cost. You can visit our online ink cost calculator below to determine the estimated cost of your labels based on label size and percent ink coverage, or see how the L801 has a great return on investment.

Optional Rewinder

The Afinia L801 Optional Label Rewinder makes managing your labels easy, and allows you to conveniently rewind your labels right onto a 3″ core. It’s a great, recommended addition for companies that experience high usage or heavy duty jobs.

The rewinder can handle label sizes up to 8.5″ wide and rolls with up to 8.0″ outside diameter, and gives you the ability to choose the direction of rotation, to situate labels to be either face in or face out. Once rewinding is complete, simply remove the core holder and completed roll.

Calculate Ink Cost For Labels

The cost of ink is one of the most important factors that make up the ownership cost of a label printer. Some business owners who opt for an inexpensive label printer, eventually find out that the high ink cost of that “budget” printer makes it more expensive to own.

We have found that, depending upon your monthly label print volume, a $2,000 printer, with a high ink cost, can become more expensive than a $9,000 printer in less than six months.

The ink cost calculator for the Afinia Label L801 is easy-to-use. Just enter the dimensions of your label and its percentage of ink coverage into the fields below. If you don’t know the ink coverage of your label, use the coverage function in your Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW software. If that’s not available to you, check with your graphic designer.
