Primera Technology, Inc. of Plymouth, MN, USA, a manufacturer of specialty printers, has announced the addition of the CX1000 Color Label Printer to its range of industrial label printers.

Designed for in-house production of professional-quality product labels, the CX1000 has a 2400 dpi print resolution and print speed of 5 meters per minute. According to the company, printed labels are waterproof, scratch-, smudge- and tear-resistant. Ink is also UV-resistant so printed labels can be used indoors or outside. Many of the most popular sizesare in-stock and ready for immediate shipment. Custom sizes are also readily available.

CX1000 prints onto many different laser-qualified label materials, including pressure-sensitive plain papers, and white and clear polyesters.

Primera has also qualified an all-new selection of eco-friendly substrates that are made of up to 100% post-consumer waste.
