At the recent LabelExpo event in Illinois, Primera announced its new color label printer: the LX2000. This desktop printer could change things for small businesses that need an efficient and affordable label-making solution, because it allows users to print 4800 DPI labels at 6 inches per second for a fraction of the cost of Primera laser printers like the CX1000.
For $3,495, the LX2000 will offer a faster print speed and more efficient use of color ink than the competition. Part of the reason this printer will be more cost effective is down to its CKMY ink cartridges, which use pigment-based ink, as opposed to the dye-based ink that the previous LX400 and LX900 printers used.
How does this new printer compare to its immediate competitors? The VIPColor VP495 costs $3595 and prints 1200 x 1200 resolution DPI labels at 3.8 inches per second. While this is a fast rate, the LX2000 prints high quality images at a faster rate.
Another similar printer is the Epson GP-C831, a tractor feed label printer that is perfect for producing low-quality, industrial labels, with optional winder and unwinder attachments to try and streamline the process even more.
It can also handle images with a quality as high as 720 x 720 DPI. While it's a high-selling printer and perfect for high-volume uses at $1,995, it doesn't have the same expansive possibilities that the new Primera LX2000 will offer newer companies who need the wider range of color options when they are first designing their product labels.
