L502 - Pigment Printer

Pigment and Dye-based Labels

Pigment-based prints are highly resistant to the challenges of moisture, abrasion, sun-fading, and extreme temperature. This makes the L502 perfect for packaging requiring GHS compliance, as well as those with high exposure to moisture, such as beverages and bath products.

The L502’s dye-based prints are high-impact, colorful, and vibrant, making them ideal for prime labeling applications, such as in retail environments.

Enjoy the durability of pigment and the vibrancy of dye inks in the same printer. The L502’s ink interchangeability offers a level of versatility never before experienced in the label printing world.

BS5609 Certified for Durable Labels

The L502 has been tested and certified to produce BS 5609-compliant and GHS (Globally Harmonized System) labels, which helps keep chemical manufacturers in compliance with packaging and transportation requirements. This testing evaluates the permanence of the print through abrasion and submersion in salt water for 90 days.

Built for Industrial Use

The L502 color label printer’s heavy-duty construction includes an all-steel industrial cover, with a window for print bed visibility and status monitoring. It also has improved sensors that allow for greater compatibility with specialty media, such as reflective metallic material. In addition to the standard roll-fed model, the L502 is also available in a fanfold-compatible version (F502) with the same build quality and feature set.

Improvements extend to the L502 Color Label Printer toolbox, allowing for increased control, including ‘Pause’ and ‘Cut’ functions. It’s easy to perform firmware upgrades.

Versatility Meets Economy

Not only is the L502 one of the most versatile label printers on the market, but it also offers excellent value for small to mid-sized label applications. Separate CMYK ink cartridges contribute to a lower cost per label, since only colors that are empty need to be replaced.
