Epson Leads the Way in Sustainable Inkjet Innovation
Epson (PRINTING United Booth 5410, 5610) breaks new ground with its latest range of inkjet label printers for on-demand, commercial and industrial label printing markets.
The global launch of four new ColorWorks on-demand digital label printers (the ColorWorks CW-C6000Ae, CW-C6000Pe, CW-C6500Ae, and CW-C6500Pe) extends Epson’s existing range and meets the needs of customers across many sectors (food, chemical, beverage, horticulture, logistics, etc.). The range includes auto-cutter models (Ae) and time-saving auto-peeler (Pe) functionality that automatically removes the label backing paper and can be integrated seamlessly into existing print-and-apply production lines.
The new Epson SurePress industrial label press (L-6534VW) is designed for label converters looking to expand their operations by offering high-quality self-adhesive labels with a wide choice of substrates in sectors including food, beverage, industrial, cosmetic, toiletries and pharmaceuticals. The SurePress L-6534VW is built to optimize productivity and minimize downtime with additional print modes of 30 meters per minute and 50 meters per minute, providing users greater flexibility in delivering print runs without compromising quality.
Two new all-in-one LabelWorks industrial label makers (the LW-Z5010BE with integrated keyboard, display and Li-ion battery, and the LabelWorks LW-Z5000BE for PC and smart device use) were developed for those working in datacom, factories, construction, warehouses and high-end electrical maintenance. Both label makers boast a wide range of potential uses, including patch paneling, cable identification, face plates, distribution boxes, safety signs and product identification.
Epson is also pleased to announce that the inks used in its SurePress and ColorWorks label printers are compliant with EU Regulation framework ((EC) No. 1935/2004), Good Manufacturing Practices Regulation (GMP) ((EC) No. 2023/2006), Plastics Implementation Measure Regulation ((EU) 10/2011) and is included in the Swiss Ordinance (SR 817.023.21) on Food Contact Materials for food packaging printing inks. “Epson’s SurePress and ColorWorks ranges are utilized worldwide by converters and end users for the food and beverage industry,” says Duncan Ferguson, Director, Professional Graphics, Epson. “Each ink system gaining compliance with these complex food regulations is an important achievement and milestone, and further demonstrates Epson’s leadership in digital production for labels and packaging applications.”
