The gist: Built for inline integration and high-volume roll-to-roll production. Fast print speed and high image quality. Super-low ink costs.
Top Uses & Applications
High Volume Roll-to-Roll
Food & Snack
Nutraceutical & Pharmaceutical
Powerful in both roll-to-roll and inline applications
Integrates directly with label finishers, applicators, dispensers, and more
The L901 combines industrial design, exceptional image quality, and high production speeds with a new ability to service and maintain the printhead “on-the-fly.” This makes the L901 perfect for long roll-to-roll print jobs or inline integration with label finishers, applicators, dispensers, and more.
Produce vibrant, full-color prints in high resolution. Large print volumes are now more economical, with five high-capacity 250ml CMYKK ink cartridges delivering an ultra-low cost per label.
L901 Plus with Watershield™ Water-Resistant Inks
The Plus model offers increased water and moisture resistance1.
Watershield-printed labels are significantly more resistant to the effects of prolonged moisture exposure than conventional dye-based inkjet labels. This makes the L901 Plus perfect for applications such as chilled beverages, foods, chemical or pharmaceutical products.
This new technology also produces deeper blacks, uses more responsibly-sourced inks2, and helps to prolong the life of the printhead3.
1 Water resistance can be media-dependent. Always test your printed label to be sure it meets your requirements.
2 Watershield™ inks do not contain chemicals that are considered to be harmful to humans or the environment.
3 Memjet tested ejection life internally and found an average above 2X printhead life. Actual results may vary due to factors such as environment and frequency of use.
- Inline & high-volume printing
- Fast print speeds (≤ 12 IPS)
- Super low ink costs
- Water-resistant inks available
L901 / L901 Plus Details
Roll-to-Roll Label Printing
The XL Unwinder/Rewinder system pairs perfectly with the L901 to allow for continuous, roll-to-roll label production. Easily handle rolls up to 12″ in diameter outside diameter for high-volume jobs and reduced media costs.
Designed for Inline Applications
The L901’s Memjet VersaPass printhead technology allows for on-the-fly maintenance, which makes for perfect inline integration with dispensers, applicators, label finishers and high-volume digital label press configurations.
Ultra-low Ink Cost
Five high-capacity ink cartridges (CMYKK) offer extremely low ink cost per print, a top factor in assessing cost of ownership while choosing a printer.
High Speed & High Resolution
A stationary printhead offers blazing fast print speeds of up to 60 inches (18m) per minute. Keep up with most high-volume jobs, whether in a continuous roll-to-roll setup or inline with a digital press.
