The Afinia L901 Plus Color Label Printer combines industrial design, exceptional image quality, and high production speeds. By utilizing Memjet’s new Sirius print engine, the L901 Plus Label Printer has a new ability to service and maintain the printhead “on-the-fly.” One advantage of this is that the printer does not need to cut or release the web in order to cap the printhead between print jobs like other Afinia Memjet™ Label Printers. This makes the Afinia L901 Plus perfect for long roll-to-roll print jobs or inline integration with label finishers, applicators, dispensers and more.

Producing vibrant full-color prints in high resolution, the Afinia L901 Plus utilizes Memjet’s new optimized ink formula (known as Memjet VersaPass N or “Niagara” Ink) which delivers improved UV- and water-resistance, as well as deeper blacks, a wider color gamut and a longer printhead life2. Large print volumes are now more economical, with five high-capacity 250 mL CMYKK ink cartridges delivering an ultra-low cost per label. The Afinia L901 Plus is essentially the same label printer as Afinia L901 except that it is designed to use the newer Memjet VersaPass N ink formula.

Watershield™ Technology for Water-Resistant Labels

Watershield-printed labels are significantly more water-resistant and resistant to the effects of prolonged moisture exposure1 than conventional dye-based inkjet printed labels. This makes the Afinia L901 Plus Label Printer perfect for medium-run and long-run label print jobs used for applications such as chilled beverages, refrigerated or frozen foods, chemical or pharmaceutical products. Besides producing deeper blacks, wider color gamut and prolong the life of the printhead2, this new VersaPass N ink technology by Memjet™ also uses more responsibly-sourced inks3 that are better for the environment.

Roll-to-Roll Digital Label Printing

The Afinia XL Unwinder & Rewinder pairs perfectly with the Afinia L901 Plus to allow for continuous, roll-to-roll label production. It can easily handle rolls up to 10 inches in diameter outside diameter for high-volume jobs and reduced media costs.

Designed for Inline Applications

The Afinia L901 Plus’ Memjet™ VersaPass printhead technology paired with Memjet’s Sirius Print Engine allows for convenient on-the-fly maintenance, which makes for perfect inline integration with dispensers, applicators,  high-volume digital label press configurations, and inline label finishers.

Ultra-Low Ink Cost

The Afinia L901 Plus supports five high-capacity CMYKK ink cartridges offer extremely low ink cost per print – a major factor in assessing the cost of ownership while choosing a label printer. Learn the exact ink cost of your label design and email us your label artwork.

High-Speed & High-Resolution

Keep up with high-volume jobs, whether in a continuous roll-to-roll setup or inline with a digital press with the Afinia L901 Plus. A stationary Memjet™ printhead offers ultra-sharp 1600 x 1600 dpi print resolution and extremely fast print speeds of up to 60 feet per minute (18 meters per minute).

  1. Fred A

    This has been an amazing addition to our printshop and has enabled us to easily handle private labeling jobs (both large and small) for our customers. This printer is the best value compared to other very similar memjet based printers. The ability to store and easily print jobs from the touchscreen and has been a huge help and time saver too.
