Primera Catalyst Laser Label Marking Systems

Primera Catalyst Laser Label Marking Systems

Produces most durable custom laser marked labels and tags.

The new Primera Catalyst Laser Marking Systems produce asset tags, barcode/QR code labels, serial tags, warning labels, instruction panels, and many other industrial labels that must withstand rough environmental conditions for many years.

They combine printing onto highly durable, pre-laminated label substrates with a built-in Digital Die-Cutting™ system for producing labels of any shape or size. As no add-on filtration or fume extraction equipment is required, these laser-marking label printers reduce the initial equipment and ongoing maintenance costs.

Innovative imaging and cutting technology


The Catalyst - available in three versions with different output speeds - uses a patent-pending, bundle package of fibre-coupled laser diodes that laser-images onto a laser film. This laser film (CLF), developed and manufactured by Schreiner, is an unique pre-laminated material that is very resistant to environmental damage and degradation from chemicals, blowing sand and other abrasion.

During the phase-change process that makes the image appear underneath the clear, protective laminate the laser generates no smoke or fumes. Other laser marking systems use the laser to cut out the label's shape and size, but create smoke and fumes. The Catalyst, by contrast, uses an X/Y knife blade plotter that cuts through the CLF material resulting in zero smoke or fumes with no need for filtration or noisy smoke extraction.

Easy to use, operate and maintain


Catalyst Laser Marking Systems are fast and easy to setup and operate with their self-installing driver and PrintHub™ for Windows. The label design and printing software BarTender® UltraLite is included, upgrade versions for additional features like databases such as SAP®, Oracle® and other ERP integrations are available as well. Wired USB 2.0 and Ethernet connectivity are standard.

Maintenance is limited mostly to keeping the machine’s interior clear of dust generated during the digital die-cutting process. Laser diodes and fiber-optic couplers have a long life and are replaceable if ever needed.

Width of through-hole: 6 mm (0.25") to 13 mm (0.5")
Reflective/Black Mark Width**: Min: 2.5 mm (0.1")

Max Outer Diameter (OD): 152 mm (6")
Inner Core Diameter (ID): 76 mm (3")

* This is the recommended maximum. There are two factors that determine whether the printer will accept any particular stock thickness.

  1. The ability for the printer to pull the paper through the printer area.
  2. The ability for the sensor to read through the backing if the sensor is set to die-cut.

** The Reflective/Black Mark should be opaque to infrared light. The mark should be between the labels. The end of the mark should correspond with the beginning of the label.

Further information is available in the user manual.
