Primera unveils FX1200 Digital Label Finishing System

April 26, 2010

The unit offers lamination, digital diecutting, slitting, and rewinding.

Primera Technology, a manufacturer of digital color label presses and color label printers, has introduced the FX1200 Digital Label Finishing System. The FX1200 is an off-line label production machine that accepts up to 12" (305mm) OD rolls of printed output from digital label presses such as Primera’s CX1200.

Finishing operations include lamination, digital diecutting, slitting, and rewinding onto multiple 3" (76mm) OD cores.

Utilizing Primera’s patent-pending QuadraCut technology, virtually any size and shape of label can be produced including complicated contour cuts, without the need to purchase rotary or flat dies. Up to four cutting blades can be installed at one time to quadruple the speed, compared with competitive machines that use a single blade.

“After introducing our ground-breaking CX1200 Digital Color Label Press last year we discovered that the few existing finishing systems available were not fast enough, not reliable enough and not easy enough to use. So we built our own,” says Mark D. Strobel, Primera’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The result is FX1200. There’s nothing else that compares to it for even four or five times the price.”

FX1200 ships fully assembled. It includes everything needed to begin finishing labels. All operation is controlled through an integrated touch screen PC. Cutting files can easily be imported through 10/100/Gigabit Ethernet, a wireless 802.11 b/g network or USB thumb drives.

“Although FX1200 is ideal for finishing digital output created by a wide range of digital presses, it’s the perfect companion to Primera’s CX1200 Digital Color Label Press,” says Strobel. “Together, CX1200 and FX1200 sell for less than $50,000. Capabilities like this used to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.” The FX1200 sells for $29,995 on its own.
