Epson introduces ColorWorks C7500 label press for in-house printing

The C7500 is a new model being added to Epson’s ColorWorks range of industrial label printers. The company assert this is symbolic of their ongoing commitment to this segment as it is experiences more demand for short-run and fast-turnaround jobs.

David Spratt, head of Epson’s Business Systems division in the UK says: ‘With the C7500 manufacturers can now produce outstanding quality, individually customised colour labels in-house, on-demand, at a low cost per label and without the costs associated with producing and stocking pre-printed labels for secondary overprinting.

‘It eliminates the costs associated with pre-printing, by producing short-run, customised labels on demand for a variety of applications such as product packaging, food, beverages, EU energy labels and [Globally Harmonised System (GHS)] labels.’

The new compact printer was introduced on 5 June and will retail for £5,295 (€7,317). It is fitted with Epson’s own PrecisionCore Micro TFP printheads which operate at 600dpi x 1,200dpi resolution. It can produce an array of label formats on matte, gloss and synthetic stock up to 108mm wide at speeds of up to 18m per minute.

The ColorWorks C7500 uses DuraBrite Ultra CMYK pigment inks formulated by Epson. These sell for £119 (€164) per 300ml cartridge. An automated cutter is fitted as standard to the new unit– and there is the option to include a rewind as well.
