LX3000e, manufactured by Primera Technology, Inc., is the latest addition to the well-known LX-Series of desktop full-colour label printers and uses the same proven and reliable platform as the popular LX910e Color Label Printer, but with the addition of large, individual ink tanks and a reusable thermal inkjet printhead.
The ink system is being called ‘Big Ink’ to differentiate it from other Primera models. Print quality is exceptional with native 1200 dpi resolution with a maximum print resolution of 1200 dpi x 4800 dpi. Labels up to 210 mm (8.25”) wide and 610 mm (24”) long can be printed. Print speed is up to 114 mm (4.5”) per second.
Each separate CMY tank holds 60 ml of ink. Pre-primed, user-replaceable printheads have another 42 ml of ink, for a total of 222 ml ‘out of the box’ ink. Both dye and pigment models are available. Replacement ink tanks are easy to install without further priming for uninterrupted printing.
The Big Ink system on LX3000e uses latest technology dye and pigment inks optimised for brightness, durability, and optical density. The latter is particularly high for LX3000e’s process black, resulting in the blackest black ever released by Primera in a CMY printer. Process black has many advantages for labels over the separate carbon black inks used by other colour label printers, including better water resistance, compatibility with a broader range of speciality label media, and more resistance to smearing on high gloss media.
The LX3000e is ideal for users that need to print up to 10,000 labels per day. Other users will find the very low operating costs to be just as advantageous. The rugged, powder-coated steel cover and all-steel frame helps to protect the printer in most office, warehouse, and factory environments.
LX3000e is compatible with Windows 7, 8x, and 10. A macOS printer driver will be available for download in the third quarter of 2021. Interfaces include Ethernet and USB 2.0 wired ports.
“The LX3000e is a desktop label printer that expands perfectly our portfolio of printing solutions,” says Andreas Hoffmann, managing director of DTM Print. “It combines the latest in ink technology, excellent print quality and exceptional low cost per label.”
DTM Print offers great additional benefits with all its products such as free label design software (BarTender UltraLite and NiceLabel Free 2019 DTM Version), three years warranty, support and service through local partners, and a large variety of approved label substrates under the brand ‘Genuine DTM Label Stock’.
“Besides label printers for different production volumes our product range includes label finishing solutions, applicators and metallic foil imprinters, providing installations ‘tailored’ to the end-user’s needs,” adds Hoffmann.
