Primera introduces FX500e Foil Imprinting System

25 October 2017

Primera Technology, a manufacturer of specialty printers, has announced its new FX500e Foil Imprinting System. FX500e is Primera’s new and improved foil imprinter, adding brilliant metallic highlights to pre-printed or blank labels.

It’s a suitable accessory to Primera’s LX- and CX-Series color label printers and other laser- or inkjet-based label printers. As the imprinting process is digital, virtually any design elements can be added to the label including borders, fonts, graphics and backgrounds. Metallic foils enhance product labels because a message of luxury and elegance is conveyed that emphasizes the quality and value of each product.

Metallic foils in gold, silver, blue and red are available, as well as various spot colors and clear foil. When printed onto pre-printed labels, clear foil not only adds a professional, glossy finish but also makes labels virtually waterproof and UV resistant, allowing longer exposure to natural and artificial light sources. Additionally, the clear film adds a high degree of resistance to chemicals, cleaning solutions and other harsh environmental factors.

Fast print speeds and a low purchasing price allow users to quickly produce shiny labels on-demand in the amount that is actually needed, in a cost-efficient way. FX500e costs less than the foil imprinter it replaced, which was called FX400e. The MSRP of Primera’s FX500e is € 499 while the FX400e was priced at € 599.

Additional features include:

  • 300m ribbon capacity
  • Easy media and ribbon loading with an improved guiding mechanism to secure the label path
  • Optimized printing results
  • Reduced printing noise
  • Easy and hassle-free maintenance

The FX500e is easy to set up and operate. Printer drivers are included for Windows XP/7/10 along with BarTender Ultralite and NiceLabel Free 2017 Primera Edition Software (both for Windows), four color ribbon starter rolls and an external supply adapter for 25mm or 76mm (1″/3″) roll cores, holding larger input rolls of up to 216mm (8.5″) outer diameter.

Primera Europe continues to offer 24 months warranty (the standard 12 months, plus an additional 12 months for free upon product registration on its website) for all European units.
