Primera's new DL500 Durable Label Printer is built to be used right on your desktop or workbench, making the laser marking process easy and convenient. It's used just like any other Windows-based printer. The main difference is that DL500 contains a high-powered, solid state fiber optic coupled laser. The laser either ablates r phase-changes a wide rage of specialty label substrates, delivering all the advantages of highly-durable laser label marking but at a much lower cost and with far greater simplicity than ever before. Labels produced on DL500 are designed to be replacements for etched metal plates as well as thermal transfer laminated polyester barcode labels. Both "smoke" and "smokeless" types of substrates are available.
