WEST WARWICK – Astro-Med Inc. announced the worldwide release of its newest inkjet color label printer, the Kiaro! 200, on Monday.
The new wide color label printer is currently being debuted at major packaging and labeling trade shows in North America and Europe, including Pack Expo in Las Vegas, Label Expo in Brussels and Fachpack in Nuremberg, Germany.
“Based on feedback we have received from hundreds of our Kiaro! customers around the world, we believe that the Kiaro! is the most reliable high-speed, in-house label printer technology on the market,” said Eric E. Pizzuti, general manager of Astro-Med, in a statement. “With the invention of our Kiaro! 200 color label printer, we can now serve new manufacturers whose larger products require wider label widths, and who need to print color labels on demand, in-house.”
According to the Company, the Kiaro! 200 is capable of printing 1200-dpi high-resolution labels that measure up to eight inches wide by more than 17 inches long, at speeds of 8 inches per second. The new printer is intended to satisfy the short-run labeling needs of manufacturers of large-size products within the chemical, dietary supplement and food industries, among others.
The Kiaro! 200 joins the standard Kiaro! label printer, which enables manufacturers to print labels between one and four inches in width. The Kiaro! 200 is available now from QuickLabel Systems or one of the QuickLabel dealer partners worldwide.
