Primera unveils FX500e foil imprinting system

PKBR Staff Writer Published 24 October 2017

Primera Technology Europe has introduced new and improved foil imprinter designed to add bright metallic highlights to pre-printed or blank labels.

The new FX500e Foil Imprinting System complements Primera’s LX- and CX-Series color label printers and other laser- or inkjet-based label printers.

Primera said that the imprinter’s digital imprinting process allows users to virtually add any design elements to the label including borders, fonts, graphics and backgrounds.

The FX500e, which is said to be easy to set-up and operate, can print metallic foils in gold, silver, blue and red as well as various spot colors and clear foil.

Primera said: “When printed onto pre-printed labels, clear foil not only adds a professional, glossy finish but also makes labels virtually waterproof and UV resistant, allowing longer exposure to natural and artificial light sources.”

The new imprinter features a 300m ribbon capacity as well as an improved guiding mechanism to secure the label path.

Additionally, printer drivers are included for Windows XP/7/10 along with BarTender Ultralite and NiceLabel Free 2017 Primera Edition Software (both for Windows), four color ribbon starter rolls and an external supply adapter for 25mm or 76mm (1in or 3in) roll cores, holding larger input rolls of up to 216mm (8.5in) outer diameter, the firm noted.

Primera Europe, a unit Primera Technology, will continue to offer 24 months warranty for all European units.
