Primera’s FX finishing unit makes European debut

September 29, 2011

The introduction of the finishing unit to accompany the CX1200 laser printer gives a full printing/converting process in a small digital format.

Primera Technology brought its tabletop CX1200 to Labelexpo Europe along with its new companion, the FX1200 finishing system.

The FX unit allows for lamination, diecutting, matrix removal, slitting, and rewinding. Cutting is accomplished by up to four knife blades. “That hasn’t been done before,” said Vice President Mark Strobel. “This is fast. The printer moves at 16.25 feet per minute, as will a typical cut job. Of course, the more intricate the cut, the longer it takes.”

The CX1200 features a CMYK toner-based laser printer, a Lexmark engine at its core but significantly modified by Primera. “We modify the RIP, firmware and mechanics,” says Strobel. The changes allow for continuous web printing and control of dot placement.

The list price in the US for the CX1200 printer is $18,995. The FX1200 is $34,995, and a discount is offered for the pair.
