The LP130 label printer from Primera improves in-house production of durable labels for various rough-service applications, including part numbers, warnings, instruction labels, and serial tags for commercial, off-highway, and outdoor equipment. Text, graphics, and linear or 2-D bar codes can be laser-ablated onto various adhesive-backed label materials. Finished labels do not require lamination to withstand extended exposure to UV light, chemicals, liquids, and temperatures up to 300°C (572°F). Instead of ink, the printer uses a specially designed laser diode with high-precision, matched optics. That marking method combination produces durable labels at reduced costs with simplified mechanics that require no special maintenance or ongoing calibration. The LP130 installs as a standard printer and can be driven by any label-creation software without special training. Both smoke and smokeless label substrates are available.
