Powerful in both roll-to-roll and inline applications

 Integrates directly with label finishers, applicators, dispensers, and more.

The L901 combines industrial design, exceptional image quality, and high production speeds with a new ability to service and maintain the printhead “on-the-fly.” This makes the L901 perfect for long roll-to-roll print jobs or inline integration with label finishers, applicators, dispensers, and more. Produce vibrant, full-colour prints in high resolution. Large print volumes are now more economical, with five high-capacity 250ml CMYKK ink cartridges delivering an ultra-low cost per label.

Roll-to-Roll Label Printing and Inline Applications

The XL Unwinder/Rewinder system equips the L901 to cope with continuous, roll-to-roll label production. Easily handle rolls up to 12″ in diameter outside diameter for high-volume jobs and reduced media costs.

The L901’s Memjet VersaPass printhead technology allows for on-the-fly maintenance, which makes for perfect inline integration with dispensers, applicators, label finishers and high-volume digital label press configurations.

High Speed & High Resolution

A stationary memjet printhead offers blazing fast print speeds of up to 18m per minute. Keep up with most high-volume jobs, whether in a continuous roll-to-roll setup or in line with a digital press.

The Plus model offers increased water and moisture resistance1.

Watershield-printed labels are significantly more resistant to the effects of prolonged moisture exposure than conventional dye-based inkjet labels. This makes the L901 Plus perfect for applications such as chilled beverages, foods, chemical or pharmaceutical products.

This new technology also produces deeper blacks, uses more responsibly sourced inks2, and helps to prolong the life of the printhead3.Watershield water resistant color dye based inkjet inks from Afinia Label

1 Water resistance can be media dependent. Always test your printed label to be sure it meets your requirements.
2 Watershield™ inks do not contain chemicals that are harmful to humans or the environment.
3 Memjet tested ejection life internally and found an average above 2X printhead life. Actual results may vary due to factors such as environment and frequency of use.
