AstroNova Launches Label Presses

WEST WARWICK, RI | AstroNova, a global supplier of data visualization technologies, reports that its TrojanLabel and QuickLabel business units recently unveiled four new label presses and printers at PACKEXPO 2017 and Labelexpo Europe 2017.

The QL-30 and QL-60 feature compact design and high print speeds. These thermal transfer label printers are said to be ideal for barcoding and other one-color labeling applications, featuring a full-color touchscreen interface, complete with video and Wi-Fi. The printers are said to be ideal for producing rugged images for hazardous substance labeling, including cardboard boxes, pallets, and other surfaces exposed to extreme conditions for lengthy periods.

The Trojan T2-C has the full capacity of a larger press but easily fits into any size print department with a footprint of less than 4 sq ft. Reportedly, the press produces ideal print quality and registration and is optimized with automatic tension control and a built-in web guide. The intuitive TrojanControl touch panel user interface is said to be easy to use and facilitates a quick startup. With 24/7 production in mind, print speeds to 12 in./sec and resolution to 1,600 dpi, the T2-C is a press designed for brand owners, print shops, and professional label converters who want to add high resolution color inkjet labels to their portfolio.

The Trojan T4 extends the company’s product line into the high-production environment for professional label converting. Described as a robust single-pass label printing press and finishing system that uses the highly intuitive TrojanControl touch panel user interface. For advanced label production and finished rolls of what is called superior quality, the T4’s advanced digital inkjet printing press prints, laminates, die-cuts, and slits full-bleed color labels to 1600 x 1600 dpi resolution at speeds to 60 fpm (18 mpm). The T4 also allows the user to create blank die-cut labels at speeds to 165 fpm (50 mpm). Company says press is compact and designed for high-capacity production yet perfect for short label runs and is fully integrated for efficient production and quick changeovers.
