The Afinia L801 Color Label Printer is an industrial web-fed inkjet solution featuring Memjet™ technology. This digital label printer is ideal for short-run and medium-run label print jobs used for anything from consumer product labeling to inventory applications. The Afinia L801 is easy to use (does not require a skilled operator), has an integrated unwinder, works well with industry-standard label design software, and is available with an optional rewinder. The L801 is compatible with a wide range of paper, polyester, polypropylene, and vinyl label stocks from major vendors.
If you or your business require labels that are UV-resistant or water-resistant, consider the Afinia L801 Plus which is essentially the same printer as the Afinia L801 but it is instead designed to use Memjet’s newly formulated “Niagara” ink (also known as VersaPass N ink), which dramatically increases its resistance to water, moisture and ultra-violet light1.
Memjet™ Color Label Printer
The Afinia L801 Color Label Printer is a Memjet™-powered digital label printer allowing you to print high-quality, full-color prime labels at speeds of 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 superb print resolution.
High Quality & Resolution
Using the Afinia L801 Color Label Printer, you can print at up to 1600 x 1600 dpi for vivid, eye-catching labels – perfect for capturing a customer’s attention on a store shelf and fine enough to print small fonts on the back of a nutrition label. By using CMYKK, the L801 Label Printer offers exceptional color and rich blacks, giving you the ability to print with better contrast.
The Afinia L801 Optional Label Rewinder makes managing your labels easy, and allows you to conveniently rewind your labels right onto a 3-inch core. It is a great, recommended addition for companies that experience high usage, heavy duty jobs and/or require an applicator to apply labels to products.
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 either face in or face out. Once rewinding is complete, simply remove the core holder and completed roll.
In some cases, users may require a larger roll of labels. While it is generally recommended to upgrade to either an Afinia L901 or L901 Plus Label Printer, users can optionally add the RW300 Large Capacity Rewinder and the UW300 Large Capacity Unwinder* (*requires modification to the rear media cover) to the L801 Label Printer which allows users to print on label rolls up to 12.0″ outside diameter. For reference, depending on the thickness of the label material, a roll with an outside diameter of 8.0 inches is equal to roughly 500 linear feet, whereas a roll with an outside diameter of 12.0 inches is equal to roughly 1,250 linear feet.
