Primera has announced the release of the DL500 Durable Label Printer. DL500 allows fast and easy in-house production of highly durable labels for a wide range of rough-service applications, including the US Department of Defense’s IUID program labels, UDI labels for medical devices and healthcare equipment, automobile VIN and under-hood part number, warning and instruction labels, aerospace and solar panel labels, serial tags for outdoor equipment, automobile parts, building materials and much more. Text, graphics and linear or 2D bar codes can be laser ablated onto a range of adhesive-backed label materials. Instead of ink, the printer utilizes a specially-designed laser diode along with high-precision, matched optics. According to the company, this type of laser and optics combination has never before been used in a roll-fed, desktop laser label imager.
