Whether for warnings on packages, colour codes on component parts, coloured notes in patient charts or personalised tickets and wristbands: colour helps to highlight important information, facilitate intuitive understanding, optimise working processes and prevent mistakes. With the Epson ColorWorks C3400 colour label printer, you will now be able to easily produce such important labels yourself. This fast multi-talent is able to process a wide range of formats, materials and surfaces while keeping costs low. The special ink is guaranteed to be durable and smudge-proof.
The ColorWorks C3400 suits applications in retail, medical engineering and production, or any field where small numbers of high-quality labels are needed. Producing these yourself is often a much more cost-effective solution than buying pre-printed products. The Epson ColorWorks C3400 is an economic and versatile printer, as it is able to process labels, wristbands, tickets, and continuous and pre-cut paper with a width of 30 to 112 mm (printing width from 20 to 104 mm). The integrated auto-cutter cuts paper rolls and continuous paper according to individual preferences. This reduces waste and makes large stocks of various label sizes redundant. Paper is supplied by inserted rolls or using the backside slot for fanfold media.
The ColorWorks C3400 also attains top marks in terms of printing speed: up to 1,000 labels per hour, depending on the size and resolution. Another advantage is its efficiency: one ink cartridge lasts for up to 10,000 labels. Thermal transfer printers, on the other hand, always use up colour ribbons the size of the label, even when only one line needs to be printed.
Many applications require labels that are durable and smudge-proof, such as the medical sector where labels must withstand cleaning and disinfectants. Epson's pigment ink guarantees greater durability than other printing techniques for graphics, photos, text and bar codes.
In spite of the printer's many features, its sophisticated handling is easy even for beginners. It also has a particularly ergonomic advantage: it is the only printer on the market that has all its controls on the front side. This allows the paper and cartridge to be replaced in no time, even when the printer is placed on a shelf or under a counter.
The printer is easily connected to common systems via USB 2.0 or Ethernet. Its extensive software and driver support along with the included software development kit ensure centralised administration options and configuration of huge networks with up to 64 printers.
Last but not least, using the Epson ColorWorks C3400 also saves energy and money. It consumes much less power than common thermal printers or even other ink jet technologies - in stand-by mode as well as in operation. How? - Common printer technologies work by heating individual components, which requires a lot of energy, but the Epson piezoelectric printing technology functions without heat.
