The Afinia L801 Plus Color Label Printer is an industrial web-fed inkjet solution featuring Memjet™ technology and Watershield™. The Afinia L801 Plus 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. The Afinia L801 Plus is easy to use (does not require a skilled operator), has an integrated internal unwinder, works well with industry-standard label design software, and is available with an optional rewinder. The L801 Plus is compatible with a wide range of paper, polyester, polypropylene, and vinyl label stocks from major vendors.
Watershield™ for UV & Water-Resistant Labels
Watershield-printed labels are significantly more resistant to the effects of prolonged moisture exposure than conventional dye-based inkjet-printed labels. This makes the L801 Plus perfect for short-run and medium-run label print jobs used for applications such as chilled beverages, refrigerated or frozen foods, chemical or pharmaceutical products. This new ink technology by Memjet™ also produces deeper blacks, has a wider color gamut, uses more responsibly-sourced inks2, and also helps to prolong the life of the printhead3.

Memjet™ Color Label Printer
The Afinia L801 Plus Color Label Printer is a Memjet™-powered digital label printer allowing you to print high-quality, full-color, UV- and water-resistant 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 high-definition print resolution.
High Quality & Resolution
Using the Afinia L801 Plus 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 nutrition labels. By using CMYKK, the L801 Plus Label Printer offers exceptional color and rich blacks, giving you the ability to print with better contrast.
The Afinia L801 Plus 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 recommended addition for companies that experience high usage, heavy duty jobs and/or require an applicator to apply labels to products.
The rewinder also gives you the ability to choose the direction of rotation – to situate labels to where they 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 the Afinia L901 Plus Label Printer, users can optionally add the Afinia XL Unwinder* (*requires modification to the rear media cover) to the L801 Plus Label Printer which allows users to print on label rolls with up to 10.0″ 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 10.0 inches is equal to roughly 850 linear feet.
