WEST WARWICK, RI | QuickLabel Systems has released its newest wide-width inkjet color label printer, the Kiaro! 200. The new printer debuted at major trade shows in North America and Europe, including Pack Expo in Las Vegas, Label Expo in Brussels, and Fachpack in Nuremberg. QuickLabel Systems is a business unit of Astro-Med Inc.
According to the company, the Kiaro! 200 is capable of printing 1200 dpi high resolution labels that measure up to 8 in. wide by more than 17 in. long, at speeds of 8 in. per second. This new printer is intended to satisfy the short-run labeling needs of manufacturers of large-size products within the chemical, dietary supplement, and food industries, among others.
The Kiaro! 200 joins the standard Kiaro! label printer, which enables manufacturers to print labels from 1–4 in. in width.
“Based on feedback we have received from hundreds of our Kiaro! customers around the world, we believe that the Kiaro! is the most reliable high-speed in-house label printer technology on the market,” said Eric E. Pizzuti, general manager. “With the invention of our Kiaro! 200 color label printer, we can now serve new manufacturers, whose larger products require wider label widths, and who need to print color labels on demand, in-house.”
The Kiaro! 200 is available now from QuickLabel Systems or one of the QuickLabel dealer partners worldwide.
QuickLabel Systems says that the original standard-width Kiaro! label printer has laid the groundwork for the wider Kiaro! 200 to provide consistent operation, and repeatable, high quality performance. The Kiaro! 200 automatically detects when cleaning is necessary and performs automatic cleanings without wasting a label.
The Kiaro! 200 is said to print on an array of substrates, including gloss paper and polypropylene, yielding durable labels that are ready to use as they exit the label printer.
The Kiaro! 200 reportedly is easy to use, operate, and set up. The fully integrated design is user-friendly, allowing operators to quickly load labels and inks and begin printing their labels in-house. The print drivers of the Kiaro! 200 are compatible with all major labeling software including QuickLabel’s own included Custom QuickLabel, as well as third-party software such as NiceLabel and Bartender.
