Primera LX1000 Colour Label Printer

The Primera LX1000 is no longer available, our alternative printer recommendation is the either the Primera LX3000 or the Epson CW-C6510A.

LX1000 is Primera’s newest and most economical to operate colour label printer. It utilises the latest in high-resolution inkjet technology to print brilliant, colourful labels for your products, boxes and packaging.

The LX1000 currently ships with a free copy of Bartender Ultralite software for Windows, and includes a 4”X3” Tuffcoat™ Extreme White Polyester starter roll and starter CMYK ink set.

  • Individual ink tanks for each colour let you replace only the colours that need replacing. You’ll save time and money on every job you print.
  • Printed labels can include photos, graphics, illustrations and text – even high-resolution linear or two-dimensional bar codes. 
  • Print labels when and where you need them in just the quantities you can actually use.

Short run custom labels and personalised labels are printed fast and efficiently, helping you to increase the production of your products. You can even operate several LX1000 printers from one PC as your production volumes grow.

Whether you print just a few labels at a time or thousands, they’ll be printed at speeds you probably never before thought was possible from a desktop sticker label printer.

The LX1000 is able to print labels that are B55609 compliant using special ink and label stock for that purpose.

Australia has adopted the B55609 food label compliance regulations, so any food manufacturer who ships their product should make sure their food product sticker labels and ink are meeting this standard.  This regulation requires that a label can withstand exposure to saltwater for at least 3 months and includes 2 sections:

  • Section 2 - Relates to testing the coated base material
  • Section 3 - Relates to testing the abrasion resistance and the permanence of the print

Primera LX1000 Colour Label Printer Benefits

Outstanding Print Quality

  • LX1000 incorporates the most advanced inkjet technology ever offered in a desktop sticker label printer. Called Primera Imaging Perfection™, this all-new printing technology delivers razor-sharp text, graphics and the most photo-realistic printing possible. Color droplet size is just 4 pL and black is 5.5 pL – the smallest available on an industrial-grade colour label printer. Print resolution is up to 4800 dpi versus just 1200 dpi on other printers.

Economical to Operate and Maintain

  • LX1000 has individual ink tanks for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. This means you only need to replace the ink tanks that have been depleted instead of the entire cartridge, saving money on every label you print. You’ll also be printing “greener” by not wasting ink if your designs use more of one colour than another. The print head is designed to be semi-permanent. If a replacement is ever needed, simply snap it in and out of the printer – no tools required.

A Wide Variety of Substrates

  • LX1000 prints onto many different inkjet-qualified label and tag materials, including Primera’s exclusive TuffCoat Extreme™ white and clear polyester and white BOPP. Printed labels are highly water, scratch, smudge and tear-resistant. They’ve been specifically engineered for best-in-class performance with the inks used in Primera’s LX-Series Colour Label Printers. Economical water-resistant paper labels are available in high-gloss, semi-gloss and matte finishes. Dozens of popular sizes are in-stock and ready for immediate shipment. Custom sizes are also available.
