What consumables do I need for my Afinia L801?
Consumables are required items that your Afinia L801 Color Label Printer and Afinia L801 Plus Color Label printer need to maintain full operability. One way to think of consumables is to compare them to the gas and oil your vehicle requires daily/annually to stay running.
Each Afinia L801 and L801 Plus Label printer requires the following consumables:
To ensure your production is never affected due to you being out of a consumable, we strongly encourage that a backup set of ink (C, M, Y, K, K), printhead, and service station are always kept in inventory/on hand. In the event, you run out of ink or your print quality starts to diminish, having these backup consumables on-site will reduce the need for an unnecessary rush/overnight order and a halt to production.
The figure below can be utilized as a visual guide to better understand what consumables your printer requires in addition to providing additional knowledge regarding the life expectancy of each consumable item. Please note that the life expectancy of each consumable varies on several factors. Those factors include label material, printer use, and the customers' quality expectations.
By maintaining your label printer with preventive maintenance and switching out consumables as they are needed you will decrease the likelihood of any potential maintenance-related issues from occurring. In addition to keeping the printer running in tip-top shape with routine maintenance and the swapping of consumables, you will in turn be maximizing the production life of the printer itself. Allowing your company to get the full value out of the equipment!
