WEST WARWICK, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AstroNova, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), a global leader in data visualization technologies, today introduced the QuickLabel® QL-850 and the TrojanLabel® T3-OPX, two new digital color product identification solutions that continue the Company’s mission of helping customers set themselves apart from the competition.
The QuickLabel QL-850 is a durable, wide-format tabletop color label printer that features moisture-resistant, dye-based Natura™ inks. The QL-850 is built upon the proven, continuous-production platform used to power the Company’s high-production TrojanLabel printers. A patented gear design and advanced smooth tracking system result in exacting registration and superior 1600 dpi print resolution on a wide range of media types.
The TrojanLabel T3-OPX is a next-generation overprinting system that allows customers to digitally print high-resolution color images directly on a broad range of products including cardboard, postcards, boxes, paper bags, fabric bags, wooden planks, or thicker objects like blister envelopes, cases or folded boxes ready for shipment. The T3-OPX can print images up to 11.7" (297mm) wide in a single pass. It also features newly formulated pigment inks that are water-resistant as well as highly resistant to UV light exposure. For customers, that means vibrant, long-lasting color and superior durability. The T3-OPX is a versatile solution for commercial printers, print shops, manufacturers, contract packaging solutions, and secondary logistics partners.
“Both the QL-850 and the T3-OPX deliver a return on investment that will delight our customers,” said AstroNova President and CEO Greg Woods. “With consumers making buying decisions in a matter of seconds, these new printers are the ideal solution for printing high-resolution color images either on labels or directly onto the product or packaging itself, providing business owners with the tools they need to differentiate their products in today’s competitive global market.”
Customers will have the opportunity to try out the new printers next week at PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Labelexpo Europe 2019. Additionally, exclusively at Labelexpo, AstroNova will feature a demonstration of the new Duraflex™ by Memjet technology at the Company’s innovation area.
