Primera Showcases Fast Label Printing Video


Primera released a video that showcases how fast the CX/FX System can print labels.

The Primera system is a web fed CMYK toner (electrophotographic) printer, with four separate print engines, that is integrated with a mechanical finishing unit. It takes stock up to 216mm with print width of 203mm at a five metres per minute speed at 1200dpi.

The print is finished in a FX1200e system, with cutting using four digitally-controlled tungsten carbide steel knife blades rather than a mechanical die. It registers to the print using timing mark sensors. Set-up and operation is controlled through an integrated touch screen. It handles a range of stocks including matt and gloss paper, polyester, vinyl, polypropylene and BOPP, and Donnelly also uses Kraft and adhesive grades suitable for chilling.
