New desktop label printer from Epson

Epson has announced a new label printer, the ColorWorks C7500, a small desktop colour device designed to be used for in-house, on-demand applications.

It uses Epson’s new permanent PrecisionCore Micro TFP line printhead, designed for use in the commercial-grade, industrial labelling market and which lasts for the lifetime of the printer. It’s a greyscale head that offers 600 x 1200 dpi resolution at 300mm/sec. It has Nozzle Verification Technology and dot substitution to prevent misprints and dead pixels.

It can print to a wide range of formats and sizes up to four inches wide. It uses Epson’s Durabrite Ultra pigment ink, which is said to be smudge, water and fade resistant.

As such it’s suitable for a variety of applications such as product packaging, food, beverages, EU Energy Labels and GHS labels.

It complements Epson’s larger, more industrial SurePress label printers. These include the 7-colour wide-gamut L-4033AW and the faster L-6034V, which uses UV inks.

Duncan Ferguson, Director ProGraphics, Epson Europe, says: “We are committed to this industry for the long term.” He adds: “We recognise that the label industry is extremely diverse which is why we offer such a wide range of production solutions with a choice of inks.”

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
