WEST WARWICK, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QuickLabel Systems, an Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT) business unit, has launched a narrow format label printer specifically designed for customers with small labeling applications: the Kiaro! 50 digital color label printer. The Kiaro! 50 inkjet label printer is available now from QuickLabel Systems and is being featured in the U.S. at the Pack Expo International trade show, in Chicago, IL from November 2-5, 2014.
The Kiaro! 50 is a miniature color label printer designed for printing small, high quality labels in moderate volumes (1” – 2.16” in width). Highlighting its capacity for printing quickly while maintaining a small footprint, the Kiaro! 50 weighs under 10 pounds and stands just over 10” tall.
“The new Kiaro! 50 responds to our customers’ requests for a smaller color label printer,” said QuickLabel Systems Vice President and General Manager Eric Pizzuti. “This exciting new product fits easily in any workspace, while delivering the speed and print quality QuickLabel Systems is known for.”
The Kiaro! 50 is ideal for printing high quality, professional labels for many applications including: gourmet food labels, beverage labels, dietary supplement labels, personal care and cosmetics labels, and other primary display labeling applications that require printed labels to be glossy or matte, with color accuracy and long-lasting print.
The Kiaro! 50 stays true to its larger predecessor, the Kiaro! digital color label printer, by printing quickly and reliably, in high quality in 1200 dpi, and up to 4.8 ips, which is enough to print 68 labels per minute, based on a label that is 2” wide x 4” long. Like other Kiaro! label printers, the Kiaro! 50 does not waste labels when printing, and requires little user maintenance.
The Kiaro! 50 is best suited for applications in which on-demand label printing can lessen the costs of labeling multiple SKUs and buying and storing pre-printed labels, and in which it can increase opportunities to sell custom-labeled products. The Kiaro! 50 digitally prints on blank stock, from 4 individual CMYK dye ink cartridges, which allows long print jobs with minimal user intervention.
Consistent Color Label Printing
The original standard-width Kiaro! label printer has laid the groundwork for the narrow Kiaro! 50 to provide consistent operation, and repeatable, high-quality performance. The Kiaro! 50 automatically detects when cleaning is necessary and performs automatic cleanings without wasting a label.
The Kiaro! 50 prints on an impressive array of substrates, including gloss paper and polypropylene, yielding labels that are ready to use as they exit the label printer.
Designed for Ease of Use
The Kiaro! 50 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! 50 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®.
