Primera Technology Europe has launched the FX500e foil imprinting system for adding metallic highlights to pre-printed or blank labels.
As the imprinting process is digital, virtually any design elements can be added to the label including borders, fonts, graphics and backgrounds. Metallic foils in gold, silver, blue and red are available, as well as various spot colors and clear foil. When printed onto pre-printed labels, Primera stated that clear foil adds a professional, glossy finish, and makes labels virtually waterproof and UV resistant. Additionally, the clear film it said to add a high degree of resistance to chemicals, cleaning products and other harsh environmental factors.
FX500e, which complements LX and CX series color label printers and other laser- or inkjet-based label printers, has a 300m ribbon capacity and an improved guiding mechanism to secure the label path. Printer drivers are included for Windows XP/7/10 along with BarTender Ultralite and NiceLabel Free 2017 Primera Edition Software (both for Windows), four color ribbon starter rolls and an external supply adapter for 25mm or 76mm (1in or 3in) roll cores, holding larger input rolls of up to 216mm (8.5in) outer diameter.
Primera offers a 24-month warranty (the standard 12 months plus an additional 12 months for free upon product registration on its website) for all European units.
