Primera Technology, Inc. (Plymouth, MN) has introduced the LP130 Durable Label Printer for a wide range of rough-service applications, including the U.S. Department of Defense’s IUID program labels, UDI labels for medical devices and healthcare equipment, automobile VIN and under-hood part number, warning and instruction labels, aerospace and solar panel labels, serial tags for outdoor equipment, automobile parts, building materials and much more.

Text, graphics and linear or 2D bar codes can be laser ablated onto a range of adhesive-backed label materials. Finished labels do not require lamination to withstand extended exposure to UV light, chemicals, liquids and temperatures of up to 300°C. As such, they also meet the requirements for UL and CSA rating and serial number plates. Instead of ink, the printer utilizes a specially-designed laser diode along with high-precision, matched optics. Labels produced with this method are typically used to replace metal plates or labels produced by resin thermal transfer that are laminated in a secondary process but are still not durable enough for many applications.
