Primera CX1200 Colour Label Press


The Primera CX1200 is no longer available. We instead suggest the OKI Pro 1050 or the Uninet iColor 700.

Primera CX1200 digital colour label press delivers short-run, full-colour digital label printing at a breakthrough price. Digital full-colour label printing has a wealth of significant benefits. But until now, digital label presses have been an expensive investment in both time and money. The industry needed a simpler, more cost-effective solution.

  • For precise colour control, ICC colour profiles and Pantone®-approved colour support is included. Additional profiles for various substrates are available.

  • Print speed is 16.25 feet per minute (fpm). You can print up to 1250’ at a time, which nominally equals a 12” diameter roll.

Perfect Rewinds

  • IntelliTorque is a first in this category of digital label presses.
