Colour Label Printing

Setting new standards in colour label printing

Setting new standards in colour label printing

Recent advances in on-demand colour printing technology, a field led by Epson, have made traditional two-stage colour label printing a thing of the past. Our on-demand colour printers give you complete control of the label production, allowing you to print the customised colour labels exactly when you need them and in the quantities that you will actually use.

Traditionally, thermal printers were used to overprint black onto pre-printed labels. But this approach can be slow, disruptive, wasteful and inconvenient. Epson’s range of on-demand colour inkjet printers eliminates these problems easily. With an in-house ability to print customised colour labels, tickets and tags as and when you want, you no longer have to worry about inventory, production downtime, label waste, lost orders or late shipments.

The value of colour on demand

Make your products stand out with high-quality, eye-catching colour labels.

Total control

Improved inventory management

Quality through Technology

The combination of our exacting manufacturing standards, cutting-edge Micro Piezo® inkjet technology, Epson DURABrite Ultra Inks and decades of leadership in printing technology, are the guarantee for the seamless quality of our inkjet printing solutions.

Epson DURABrite Ultra Ink

Prints are much more hardwearing with our pigment ink, which sits on the surface of the media and is highly resistant to light, water, humidity and the ozone thanks to the ink’s resin encapsulation.

Epson Micro Piezo® Technology

Epson Micro Piezo® inkjet printers deliver the ink using electrical charges instead of heating which enables precise control over droplet size and placement. With droplets as small as 3 picolitres, quality and clarity is significantly enhanced. This system also keeps costs down because the printhead lasts the lifetime of the printer.

Epson Auto Ink Detection (AID)

Epson’s AID technology uses a sensor near the printhead that counts the electrical charge from each ink drop to determine if a print nozzle is clogged. If a problem is identified, the printer will automatically start a cleaning cycle and in a few seconds the printer is ready to print again, ensuring maximum accuracy on crucial elements on the printed labels such as barcodes and colour codes.

What does this mean for you?

Ink Print head Consistency of print
Epson colour label printer Pigment ink = water and smudge resistant, better light (UV) resistance Micro Piezo® Method = permanent printhead no replacements no additional costs No misprints.
AID technology allows unattended (batch) printing – perfect for overnight use
Other colour label printer Dye-based ink = inks soluble in water and very weak light (UV) resistance Thermal Method = needs periodic replacement of the inkjet printhead, it can be costly Printer needs to be monitored while in use

Colorworks C7500 Series and PrecisionCore: the ideal combination

PrecisionCore printhead technology is the product of one of the largest investments in research and development in Epson's history, merging the company's expertise in MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) fabrication with advances in materials science.

PrecisionCore introduces a new system that uses the power of the piezo crystal itself to raise reliability. The voltage generated by each piezo element can, in milliseconds, be used to detect whether the associated nozzle is firing normally. It has the ability to self-diagnose its health almost instantly.

PrecisionCore printhead technology delivers Epson's renowned, industry-leading output quality at high speed. Inch for inch, the high-resolution Epson print chips are one of the fastest inkjet printing technologies in the world. PrecisionCore piezo elements each fire nearly 50,000 times per second.
