AstroNova has announced that its QuickLabel business unit has launched the first of its second generation Kiaro! digital inkjet colour label printers, the Kiaro! QL-120.
The QL-120 combines high resolution with fast speeds, giving business owners a powerful tool to produce professional quality colour labels in-house and on-demand, at a fraction of the cost and time of outsourcing.
Built on AstroNova's proven industry leading Kiaro! digital colour label printing technology, the new QL-120 delivers enhanced print quality, performance and reliability. With the QL-120, print speed has been increased by 50% to 305 mm per second and a new high speed auto cutter is now standard.
Other benefits include the ability to print narrow widths as small as 19.05 mm, seamless networking capabilities and extended printhead life. At a resolution of 1200 dpi, the printer ensures that even the smallest font sizes and images look crisp, while superior colour management capabilities yield brilliant, true to life images. The QL-120's durable ink formulation has an exceptional colour range and allows printing on a wider variety of materials. Because the ink is resistant to oil, water and solvents, the QL-120 is ideal for a broad range of applications from food and beverage, to chemicals, cosmetics, medical and industrial labelling.
‘As the latest innovation in our ‘total solution’ product offerings, the QL-120 exemplifies the long history of QuickLabel as a customer centric business focused on helping companies build great brands,’ said AstroNova president and CEO Greg Woods. ‘The QL-120 allows new and existing customers to print vivid, compelling labels for their branded products cost effectively, when they need them.’
The QL-120 is available for commercial shipments worldwide now.
