ZPL-ABILITY and Enterprise-ABILITY
The Epson C6500A is one of the first color inkjet label printers to offer ZPL II (Zebra Programming Language) compatibility for enterprise-level label printing. They can be used as a direct “plug and play” replacement for your existing thermal label printers running ZPL. If you are ordering pre-printed labels and running them through thermal label printers to print the variable data, the new Epson C6500A color inkjet label printer can easily replace your existing thermal label printers and print both the color images and the variable data all in one pass – eliminating the need for you to carry a costly inventory of preprinted labels. Running SAP? The Epson C6500A offers out-of-the-box integration with SAP.
Depend-ABILITY and Mission Critical-ABILITY
The Epson C6500 series color inkjet label printers are built tough and are able to withstand the rigors of mission-critical label printing – on the production floor, on the shipping dock, and in the warehouse. Just like your existing thermal label printers, you can depend on the C6500 series color inkjet label printers to reliably print labels for your mission-critical labeling needs with minimal downtime. And they are backed up by Epson’s robust ExpressCare™ service program, with options for onsite and depot service, and extended warranty programs.
The Epson ColorWorks C6500A produces crisp high-resolution color output using PrecisonCore CMYK pigment ink printing technology. The printed color image is very durable and able to withstand handling, abrasion, moisture, and resist fading. There are 5 print quality settings with resolutions up to 1200 x 1200. The C6500 label printer prints color labels from 1” up to 8.34” wide. It’s perfect for printing 6” color labels, 8” chemical drum GHS labels, and 2-up color labels.
The Epson C6500 series color inkjet label printer offers peel and present (Epson C6500P) or automated cutter (Epson C6500A) options. The peel and present option makes labeling easier by enabling operators to send a large batch print job and the printer prints one label at a time with the liner already removed. The “label taken” sensor senses when the operator takes the label before it prints the next one. The remote I/O capabilities enable these printers to easily integrate with automated label applicators for a true “print-one-apply-one” automated workflow.
The Epson C6500 series printers feature a full-color touchscreen panel that displays printer status label media settings and ink levels. Both label rolls and fanfold labels are supported and the cover opens in both directions for easy access. The printers offer Remote Printer Management, enabling organizations to manage fleets of printers. Checking consumable status, updating firmware, confirming errors, etc. can be managed from a central location using the C6500 series of printers. Using the “spot color replacement” feature, users can easily change the color without changing the original artwork. ICC color profiles can be uploaded directly to the printer. And Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems are fully supported.
The new ColorWorks models deliver dependable, commercial inkjet printing with fast-drying, durable color inks and enhanced productivity, while offering cost and inventory reduction compared to using pre-printed labels.
