Formax ColorMaxLP2 Digital Color Label Printer

Brilliant Full-Color Labels from a Compact Production-Ready Printer
The ColorMaxLP2 Digital Color Label Printer produces brilliant full-color labels at up to 60 feet per minute. Featuring a high-speed Unwinder/Rewinder System, it can easily handle continuous roll-to-roll label production, using rolls up to 10” in outside diameter. The revolutionary print engine design allows for on-the-fly maintenance, making it ideal for roll-to-roll production as it keeps the web intact throughout the entire print run.

The Memjet® print head has 70,400 ink nozzles and no moving parts, which provides higher speeds and lower maintenance costs. With a print resolution of up to 1600 x 1600 dpi it produces high-quality crisp text, barcodes, and images with vibrant color and deep, rich black tones.

The ColorMaxLP2 is compatible with a wide range of substrates including paper, polyester, polypropylene and vinyl label stocks, and utilizes 5 high-capacity 250ml ink tanks (CMYKK) for longer uninterrupted print runs. It features two modes of operation, continuous roll-to-roll using the unwinder/rewinder for larger runs, and print-and-cut utilizing the integrated cutter for short-run projects.

An intuitive full-color touchscreen provides real-time feedback to monitor job status, ink levels, perform maintenance operations, and more. Standard features include a “warm start” where printing begins in under 10 seconds, a front access door for ink cartridge replacement, and print file storage which allows users to easily recall and run past jobs.

Combining high speeds, stunning CMYK output, and a user-friendly interface, the ColorMaxLP2 is the ideal solution for all-day printing in a production environment, completing high-volume print jobs with reduced media costs.
