The new Primera CX1000 digital colour label printer prints high-quality product labels. The CX1000 makes it fast and easy to produce your own labels in-house. No longer do you need to order massive quantities of pre-printed labels. There’s no lead time and no set-up charges, either. Just import your label files into the included PTPrint™ Software, specify how many you need, and press “GO!” It’s that simple.

Printing your own labels saves time and money in other ways, too. Design changes can be accomplished immediately so you’ll have no wasted inventory – print only the labels you need when you need them. Cost per label is almost always significantly lower than outside vendors, too.

With the CX1000 you get striking print quality thanks to its incredible 2400 dpi resolution. Compared to 1200 or 1600 dpi machines, you’ll notice a striking difference in overall quality. CX1000 output has much deeper and far more vibrant colors. Dot patterns are virtually imperceptible. And for the most precise colour control, Pantone ® -approved spot colour support is included.

With Primera CX1000 you’ll produce labels at a print speed up to 5 meters per minute. You can print up to 152.4 meters at a time which nominally equals an 204mm diameter roll. Once a job is started, it can be left unattended. A built-in cutter automatically cuts the web once the job is completed and a sensor turns off the printer and rewinder. You’ll come back to a roll of finished labels ready to be applied to your products manually, semi-automatically or by an automated applicator. It really doesn’t get much easier or enjoyable to produce your own labels in-house!



Primera CX1000 is the perfect colour label printer for a a wide variety of applications such as:

  • Specialty, organic and gourmet foods and beverages
  • Wineries, breweries and distilleries
  • Coffee roasters and specialty teas
  • Cosmetics and personal care products

Advanced Inks and Cartridges

Primera’s micro-fine dry toner-based inks have been formulated for substrate flexibility,robustness and low running costs. Primera’s toner is, in fact, one of the best in the industry for waterproof performance and for long-term UV and abrasion resistance. The four extra high-capacity toner cartridges are easily replaced in just seconds from the front of the unit. An integrated memory chip assigns each cartridge with a serial number and keeps track of precisely how much toner remains.

This lets you to select exactly the right cartridges for the number of labels and the ink coverage you need to print. This helps to prevent running out of ink in the middle of a job. You’ll also utilize all of the toner in each cartridge, saving you even more money.
