WEST WARWICK, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AstroNova, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), a global leader in data visualization technologies, today unveiled the QL-240, the newest entry in the QuickLabel® family of digital, high-resolution, tabletop color label printers.
Starting at $4,995, the QL-240 is a cost-effective, wide-format label production system that is ideally suited for label printing within the facilities of brand owners, print shops or manufacturers. The printer’s fast speed allows users to reduce inventory and quickly produce vibrant high-resolution labels on a just-in-time basis. The new printer was introduced in Dusseldorf, Germany at interpack 2017, a leading international packaging trade fair for the food & beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and industrial goods sectors.
“The QL-240 is a great solution for companies needing an agile, entry-level inkjet label printer. It’s a smart, cost-effective alternative to expensive, pre-printed thermal transfer labels,” said AstroNova President and CEO Greg Woods. “Excess label inventory can quickly become waste when customers update packaging and products to comply with new regulatory requirements or meet ever-changing market needs. The QL-240 solves that problem, efficiently printing on-demand color labels at a very attractive price point. We invite interpack attendees to visit us in Hall 11, Booth A04, to see our full line of QuickLabel and TrojanLabel™ products.”
Key features of the QL-240 include:
- Easy to use design: Minimal training and set-up time. No tools needed for service. Unique airflow ventilation system prevents ink build up.
- Networking capability: Software enables users to manage up to five printers simultaneously.
- Durable: Stainless steel and aluminum with industrial-grade ruggedness.
- Specifications: Features include print widths from 2” to 8.77”, resolution up to 1600 dpi and print speeds up to 12”/second.
