Afinia launched their L901 label printer on the 1st of February 2018. It's a redesigned version of the popular L801 model with the main focus being to improve the ease of use for inline integration with finishing systems and applicators, although there are also a few other attractive improvements for those printing large volumes of labels.
Why buy the Afinia L-901 and not the Afinia L-801?
Both printers offer high speed, high quality 1600 x 1600 dpi and economical running costs. However the Afinia L901 has been designed to carry out print head servicing and cleaning "on- the- fly". Mid job print head cleaning can be a frustration when using the L-801 in line with a finishing system. This will mean materials can remain threaded through the printer / finisher at all times. This saves time, material wastage & hassle for the user which will ultimately increase productivity whilst lowering running costs.
The ink formula has also been optimized which will cut costs by roughly 10% and offer greater UV and water resistance.
Afinia L901 Printer Highlights:
- Better for inline integration with a finisher
- Lower running costs
- Improved ink durability
- Darker black ink
- Increased print head life
- With the XL unwinder rolls up to 10" OD (around 250m depending on material) can be used.
Afinia L901 Costs:
The Afinia L-901 has a list price of £8000 compared to the Afinia L-801 at £5995 so it won't be for everyone. The L801 will continue to be supplied and supported so the L901 is not a replacement for the L801 but for certain customers it will make more sense depending what the end solution is needed for.
Afinia L901 Offer:
Until the 31st March any customers new to the Afinia brand can get an introductory offer of a free second set of inks worth £575.
Can I upgrade to the L-901 from the L-801?
