Printer Overview

The L901 combines industrial design, exceptional image quality, and high production speeds with a new ability to service and maintain the printhead “on-the-fly.” This makes the L901 perfect for long roll-to-roll print jobs or inline integration with label finishers, applicators, dispensers, and more.

Producing vibrant full-color prints in high resolution, the L901’s new optimized ink formula delivers improved UV and water resistance, deeper blacks, and a longer printhead life. Large print volumes are now more economical, with five high-capacity 250ml CMYKK ink cartridges delivering an ultra-low cost per label.

Watershield™ Technology for Water-Resistant Labels

Upgrade your printer to the L901 Plus for increased water and moisture resistance [1].

Watershield-printed labels are significantly more resistant to the effects of prolonged moisture exposure than conventional dye-based inkjet labels. This makes the L901 Plus is perfect for applications such as chilled beverages, foods, chemical or pharmaceutical products.

This new technology also produces deeper blacks, uses more responsibly-sourced inks [2], and helps to prolong the life of the printhead [3].

[1] Water resistance can be media-dependent. Always test your printed label to be sure it meets your requirements.
[2] Watershield™ inks do not contain chemicals that are considered to be dangerous and/or harmful to humans or the environment
[3] Memjet tested ejection life internally and found an average above 2X printhead life. Actual results may vary due to factors such as environment and frequency of use.

Roll-to-Roll Label Printing

The XL Unwinder/Rewinder system pairs perfectly with the L901 to allow for continuous, roll-to-roll label production. Easily handle rolls up to 12″ in diameter outside diameter for high-volume jobs and reduced media costs.

Designed for Inline Applications

The L901’s Memjet VersaPass printhead technology allows for on-the-fly maintenance, which makes for perfect inline integration with dispensers, applicators, label finishers and high-volume digital label press configurations.

Ultra-low Ink Cost

Five high-capacity ink cartridges (CMYKK) offer extremely low ink cost per print, a top factor in assessing cost of ownership while choosing a printer. Learn the exact ink cost of your label design.

High Speed & High Resolution

A stationary printhead offers blazing fast print speeds of up to 60 inches (18m) per minute. Keep up with most high-volume jobs, whether in a continuous roll-to-roll setup or inline with a digital press.
