Print Highly Durable Labels for Rough-Service Applications
LP130e allows fast and easy in-house production of extremely durable labels for a wide range of applications. Text, graphics and linear or 2D bar codes can be laser ablated onto the adhesive-backed label materials. Finished labels are extremely robust and do not require lamination to withstand extended exposure to UV light, chemicals, liquids and extreme temperatures from cryogenic cold to glowing heat.
The printer was co-developed by Primera and Coherent, Inc., who is providing Primera with a specially-designed laser diode along with high-precision, matched optics. This type of laser has significant advantages over Yag, fiber and CO2 lasers, including:
- Lower cost. Typical systems will be priced about half the price of competitive systems.
- Simple mechanics. Instead of a more traditional but far more complex and expensive computer-controlled galvanometer with beam-steering mirrors, LP130e utilizes the mechanical design of a standard industrial label printer.
- No maintenance. or on-going calibration required.
- Ease of operation. LP130e installs on a PC as a standard Windows printer. It can be driven by virtually any popular label creation software. No special operator training or certification is required.
