Afinia L801: The high-quality label printer

High-speed professional print quality

The L801's combination of print quality, speed, and ink cost is hard to beat

The L801 is an industrial inkjet printer powered by Memjet, ideal for medium-high print runs. Print on continuous or die-cut media from 50.8 to 216 mm wide, in full colors, and at speeds of up to 18.2 meters per minute. The super fine resolution allows for sharp text and bar codes, even at a very small size. This detail, combined with bright colors and intense blacks, makes the labels crisp and vibrant. The L801 is also compatible with a wide range of paper, polyester, polypropylene and vinyl label holders.

L801 Plus with Water-Resistant Watershield™ inks

Ask for the L801 Plus for increased water resistance

The Plus model offers greater resistance to water and moisture1.

Labels printed with Watershield are significantly more resistant to the effects of prolonged exposure to moisture than inkjet labels based on conventional dyes. This makes the L801 Plus perfect for applications such as chilled beverages, food, chemicals or pharmaceuticals.

This new technology also produces more neutral grays and uses inks from more responsible sources2.

1 Water resistance may depend on the support used. Always test the printed label to ensure that it meets the requirements.
2 Watershield™ inks contain no chemicals considered harmful to humans or the environment

  • High-capacity printing
  • Fast print speed (≤ 12 IPS)
  • Very low ink costs
  • Best seller

The L801's combination of high print quality, speed, and ink costs makes it a popular choice for high-impact, full-color labels. In addition, the Plus model offers greater resistance to water and humidity, making it ideal for applications where labels are exposed to wet or humid conditions for an extended period.

L801/L801 Plus Details

Minimize ongoing ink costs

The cost per label should be just as important as the cost of the printer when investing in a label printer. Ongoing costs are minimized by the L801's industry-leading ink cost, which can be easily calculated using the included software. It can hold 1.25 liters of ink to support large runs and has easy-to-access ports for quick and easy replacement of media and ink. An optional powered winder simplifies printing on finished rolls.

Integrated winder

The L801 includes an integrated winder that accepts rollers up to 8 inches (203 mm) in diameter. The steel cover protects the substrate from dust and debris, reducing the potential for printing problems and extending the life of the printhead. The roller support is constantly and evenly fed to the printer.

Roll to roll label printing

The optional wrapper matches the L801 perfectly to allow the continuous production of roll-to-roll labels. Easily handle rollers up to 8 inches in outside diameter for high-intensity work and reduced media costs. It's a recommended addition for businesses that experience high usage or heavy duty work.

Like the L801, the wrapper can handle label sizes up to 8.5" wide and rolls with an outer diameter of up to 8.0". It offers you the option to choose the direction of rotation to position the labels to face inwards or outwards.

Once the wrap is complete, simply remove the core holder and the completed roller.

Memjet Waterfall Technology

The L801 industrial color label printer is a digital label printer that uses Memjet technology, allowing you to print high-impact, full-color outputs up to 60 ft/min (18 m/min). Memjet's “waterfall” stationary printhead technology allows paper to move quickly through the printer, maintaining excellent print resolution.

High quality and resolution

Using the L801 industrial color label printer, you can print up to 1600 x 1600 dpi for vibrant and attractive labels. Using CMYKK (two black ink cartridges), the L801 offers exceptional colors and rich blacks, offering the ability to print with better contrast.

Low management cost

Memjet Afinia Label label printers allow you to save on consumables. The L801 holds 1.25 liters of ink to support large print runs and offers an industry-leading ink cost. You can request a free printed sample to determine the exact cost of your labels and to see and touch the quality for yourself.
