Afinia Label, a manufacturer and distributor of industrial color label printing and finishing equipment, is announcing the release of the DLF-220L Digital Label Finisher. The DLF-220L is the newest addition to Afinia’s family of products. The DLF-220L allows companies the freedom to produce full-color, laminated labels, in custom shapes and sizes, on-demand, for just-in-time manufacturing.
This all-in-one machine can laminate, contour cut labels with a digitally controlled knife, remove the surrounding waste, slit and rewind finished labels onto rolls. These finished rolls of labels are then ready to be applied—whether by hand or automation—to packaging. The entire process is automated, in-line and simple, enabling companies to produce professional labels in-house.
The DLF-220L, when combined with Afinia Label’s L801 Digital Color Printer, brings label designs made in vector art applications, such as Adobe Illustrator, to life without expensive plates, dies or minimum order quantities. In addition, content on labels can be digitally changed as needed, eliminating waste.
“Many manufacturers struggle with managing their labels,” said Mike Atkins, National Sales Manager for Afinia Label. “Overseeing the inventory for every label size and design often requires businesses to purchase more labels than they need in order to lower costs. And when label needs change due to compliance issues, or for a product that has become obsolete, labels have to be thrown out and reordered, resulting in lost money and time. The simplicity and versatility of this solution empowers companies to create labels as needed, resulting in faster fulfillment of orders and improved profitability.”
The DLF-220L is currently available through Afinia Label’s worldwide network of dealers. “We believe businesses can more efficiently manage their label inventory without having to sacrifice the look and feel of their packaging,” said Mr. Atkins.
The DLF-220L Digital Label Finisher is now available at an industry-leading sub $24,000 (USD) price point.
