Narrow Web label printing system manufacturer Afinia Label announced that it has completed a reseller’s agreement with IBC Labels, Inc. of Montreal, Canada. IBC will be selling the Afinia Label L801 and related supplies.
“We are excited to work with IBC, a well-respected label industry leader in Canada,” says Mike Atkins, Afinia Label’s national sales manager. “IBC has expertise in many markets that benefit directly from in-plant printing. Afinia’s L801 label printer is an ideal solution for these applications. ”
The Afinia Label L801 is powered by Memjet technology, which gives it a print speed of 60 feet per minute and an industry-leading ink cost of less than 3 cents for a 4” x 6” label with 75% coverage. This is a fraction of the cost of other inkjet label printers. The L801 supports 3 print modes: Roll to Roll, Roll to Cut, Print & Hold.
Daniel Stephen Goedike of IBC says, “We produce labels for clients in the clothing, retail, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food, wood, and industrial sectors. We were interested in rounding-out our offerings with a full-color, fully digital, narrow web solution and found that the L801 is a perfect fit. Our clients are embracing the speed and low ink cost per label of the L801.”
Afinia Label entered the digital label printing market in 2012 when it collaborated with Memjet to create a commercially viable narrow web label printing system. The company is now one of the largest distributors of Memjet-based label printers in the world.
