The ColorWorks C7500G label printer allows industrial manufacturers to print on-demand colour labels on glossy media at the high speed of the C7500 for the first time.
The new ink helps produce bright, vibrant colours that are almost photo-like in quality and, when combined with glossy label media, lend a premium look and feel to packages.
Powered by Epson’s PrecisionCore print chip technology, the robust, bench top printer is ideal for high mix, low volume applications that require a large number of label varieties. By transitioning to an on-demand colour labelling solution like the ColorWorks C7500G, manufacturers can reduce total labelling costs by up to 50% by eliminating inventory of traditional black and white or pre-printed colour labels and waste. On demand colour labels also improve productivity by minimising labelling and shipping errors and changeovers.
‘The critical benefits of on demand printing are sacrificed if you don’t have ink that adheres quickly to the media it’s being applied to, which is why glossy labels have traditionally been a hurdle at this speed,’ explained Andy Scherz, Senior Product Manager at Epson. ‘We’ve been able to overcome that challenge with the ColorWorks C7500G and manufacturers can now leverage the benefits of on demand colour labelling across a wider spectrum of applications.’
The ColorWorks C7500G uses the same underlying technology as the successful ColorWorks C7500 model. It comes equipped with ZPL II programming compatibility to allow direct plug-in replacement for manufacturers operating two-step printing with traditional thermal transfer printers.
