Formax Introduces ColorMaxLP2 Digital Color Label Printer

July, 2020

DOVER, NH: Formax introduces the new ColorMaxLP2 Digital Color Label Printer, which replaces the discontinued ColorMaxLP, using the same Memjet inkjet technology. Like the popular ColorMax8, the ColorMaxLP2 features a large color touchscreen and enhanced print engine. The 7” touchscreen gives operators complete control over the printing process, with an intuitive interface, image preview, and the ability to store print jobs for quick and easy processing. The revolutionary print engine design allows users to service and maintain the print head “on the fly,” keeping the web intact throughout print runs, unlike its predecessor.

The ColorMaxLP2 produces brilliant full-color labels at speeds of up to 60 feet per minute, in a compact unit powerful enough for a production print environment. This compact all-metal printer is industrial-grade, designed for all-day production, and features a high-speed Unwinder/Rewinder System for continuous roll-to-roll printing. It easily handles rolls up to 10” in outside diameter for high-volume print jobs and reduced media costs.  For smaller jobs, the integrated cutter allows for print-and-cut operation.

Utilizing 5 high-capacity 250ml ink tanks allows for longer uninterrupted print runs, and when ink does need to be replaced, the front access door makes it easy, without having to remove label stock from the print area and rewinder. The ColorMaxLP2 prints on variety of label sizes and stocks, including paper, polyester, polypropylene and vinyl, with full bleed capability up to 8.5” wide.

The thermal inkjet print head features 70,400 inkjet nozzles and no moving parts. This offers higher speeds, more precise printing using less ink, less noise and lower maintenance costs than standard print heads. The professional-quality 1600 x 1600 dpi produces exceptionally crisp text, barcodes and images with vibrant color, and deep rich black tones.

Combining high speeds, stunning CMYK output, and a user-friendly interface, the ColorMaxLP2 is the ideal solution for all-day label printing in a production environment.
