High Res Bar Code Printer

Primera Technology, Inc., a manufacturer of specialty printers, has developed the LX200, a high-resolution bar code label printer. With 1200 dpi print resolution, the unit has nearly six times as many dots per inch as most thermal transfer bar code printers, the company claims. It can print onto labels, tickets, tags and coupons for a wide range of applications, including those requiring high levels of security and durability.

The LX200 uses an inkjet print head instead of thermal transfer ribbons, which leave behind a record of everything that has been printed. It is being shipped with label-creation software called NiceLabel SE for Primera. All popular bar codes are supported, including linear and, optionally, 2D bar codes such as PDF417. Fonts as small as two points are highly legible and perfectly formed, the company claimed. Both pigmented and dye-based black inks are available for the monochrome printers.
