“Afinia Label is excited to add two new finishing options for both the L801 and R635 Color Label Printers.” said Mike Atkins, Afinia Label’s National Sales Manager. “The DLF-1000 is an economical, standalone machine that can laminate, digitally cut, slit and rewind output from any Afinia label printer. The new DLP-2000 brings Memjet speed and low cost together with a complete, in-line finishing solution at an industry-leading price point.”
The Afinia Label DLF-1000 uses a plotter-style cutting mechanism, allowing the user to cut any size or shape without dies. The Afinia Label DLP-2000 label finishing system can work in-line with the Afinia L801 to die-cut, laminate, remove matrix, and roll labels. The DLP-2000’s rotary die-cutting system (RotoMetrics flexible dies) creates finished label rolls with uncompromised backing. These labels are very reliable when used with inline label applicators and avoid production stoppages caused by punctured backing failures. The DLP-2000 can also be used to slit and die cut blank label material for future printing.
“These two new options round out our line of digital label equipment. Our L801/DLP-2000 label finishing bundle prints and finishes labels twice as fast, with a price per label well below other comparable digital press options.”
Afinia offers two color label printers. The Afinia L801 Color Label Printer is powered by Memjet technology, which gives it a print speed of 60 feet per minute and an industry-leading ink cost of less than 3 cents for a 4” x 6” label with 75% coverage. This is a fraction of the cost of other inkjet label printers. The Afinia R635 Color Label Printer is dry toner based and carries BS5609 Section 1, 2 and 3 certification making it the ideal solution for full color, GHS compliant, chemical labels.
Afinia Label emerged as a digital label printing system leader in 2012 when they collaborated with Memjet to co-develop a commercially viable narrow web label printing solution. Afinia Label is now one of the largest distributors of Memjet-based label printers in the world.
