AstroNova launches new tabletop digital colour label printer
AstroNova has launched the new QuickLabel QL-120X, a tabletop digital colour label printer with a two year warranty.
Built on AstroNova’s pioneering Kiaro! platform, the QL-120X is a flexible, high quality, efficient solution for on-demand digital colour label printing. The product features economical, high-capacity ink cartridges and efficient, dye based inks.
‘The QL-120X combines vibrant colour quality and exceptional resolution producing sharp, crisp, clear images and fast print speeds to deliver what we expect will be the best customer experience on the market,’ said AstroNova president and CEO Greg Woods. ‘This next generation printer is designed to operate for extended periods in rigorous production environments, making it the perfect colour label printing solution for an array of industries such as food and beverage, biomedical products, nutraceuticals, hardware, and cosmetics.’
Equipped with next generation printhead technology, the QL-120X prints three times more labels (over the life of the printheads) than the original QL-120 and beats competitive printers on the market on several key performance parameters. Four individual, snap-in, colour printheads allow for rapid on-site changeover, eliminating replacement downtime or costly printer refurbishment. The printer and printhead technology are covered under an industry best two year standard warranty. With these improvements, the total cost of ownership is reduced by up to 35% compared with competitive pigment based labelling technologies, resulting in significant savings over the lifetime of the printer.
‘The design and benefits of the QL-120X reflect our philosophy of being a strategic partner to our customers by providing not merely a printer but a complete colour labelling solution,’ Greg said. ‘In terms of quality, speed, and cost efficiency, the QL-120X raises the bar and sets a new standard for on-demand digital colour label printing.’
