DTM Print, an international OEM and solution provider for specialty printing systems, has introduced the new LX3000e color label printer manufactured by Primera Technology.
The latest addition to the LX-Series of desktop full-color label printers and uses the same platform as the popular LX910e printer, but with the addition of large, individual ink tanks and a reusable thermal inkjet printhead. It features a native 1200 DPI resolution with a maximum print resolution of 1200 x 4800 DPI. It can produce labels up to 210 mm (8.25in) wide and 610 mm (24in) at up to 114 mm (4.5in) per second speeds.
Each separate CMY tank holds 60 ml of ink. Pre-primed, user-replaceable printheads have another 42 ml of ink, for a total of 222 ml of ink. Both dye and pigment models are available. Replacement ink tanks are easy to install without further priming for uninterrupted printing.
The Big Ink system on LX3000e uses the latest technology dye and pigment inks optimized for brightness, durability, and optical density. The latter is particularly high for LX3000e’s process black, resulting in the blackest black ever released by Primera in a CMY printer.
Process black has many advantages for labels, including better water resistance, compatibility with a broader range of specialty label media, and more resistance to smearing on high gloss media.
The LX3000e is suitable for users that need to print up to 10,000 labels per day. The rugged, powder-coated steel cover and all-steel frame help protect the printer in most office, warehouse, and factory environments. It is compatible with Windows 7, 8x, and 10. A macOS printer driver will be available for download in the third quarter of 2021. Interfaces include Ethernet and USB 2.0 wired ports.
‘The LX3000e is a desktop label printer that perfectly expands our portfolio of printing solutions,’ said Andreas Hoffmann, managing director of DTM Print. ‘It combines the latest ink technology, excellent print quality, and exceptionally low cost per label.’
LX3000e is available directly from DTM Print or through authorized DTM Print partners in Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Shipping is set to start in late summer 2021.
