Print Durable Color GHS Labels And Chemical Drum Labels Up To 8.34" Wide With The Epson C6500 Color Inkjet Label Printer

Epson C6500 color inkjet label printers are built tough, and are able to withstand the rigors of printing wide-format GHS labels and other chemical drum labels – on the production floor, on the shipping dock and in the warehouse.  Epson's next-generation PrecisionCore® print technology combined with Epson's UltraChrome inks deliver amazing durability, clarity and color fidelity for any color label printing application. The printed color labels can withstand exposure to moisture, abrasion, chemicals and UV – often exceeding the durability of printed thermal transfer labels.

When used with approved label stock, the labels printed with the Epson C6500 and UltraChrome inks are BS5609-certified - making this printer an ideal solution for GHS labeling and other chemical drum labeling applications.

The C6500 comes in two versions to suit your needs:
C6500A: with an auto-cutter – cuts the label from the roll after it is printed
C6500P: with peel & present – after printing, releases the label from the liner and presents it for application

A "Plug & Play" Full Color Replacement and Upgrade For Existing Wide Format Thermal Label Printers That Can Only Print One Color - Black

The Epson C6500 is one of the first color inkjet label printers to offer ZPL II (Zebra Programming Language) compatibility for enterprise-level label printing. They can be used as a direct “plug and play” replacement and upgrade for your existing one color thermal label printers running ZPL. If you are ordering pre-printed labels and running them through thermal label printers to print variable data, the new Epson C6500 color inkjet label printer can easily replace your existing thermal label printers and print both the color images and the variable data all in one pass – eliminating the need for you to carry an inventory of preprinted labels. Running SAP? The Epson ColorWorks C6500 offers out-of-the-box integration with SAP.
