The LX610e is the world’s only full-color desktop label printer/die-cutter that delivers photo-quality labels in any size and shape. It combines color inkjet label printing up to 4800 dpi with a built-in digital die-cutting mechanism. The printer features a die-cutting blade for cutting labels into custom shapes and sizes and also a built-in “guillotine” cutter for horizontal cutting of labels.

The LX610e includes easy-to-use software for designing print and cut files. This allows for the rapid production of custom labels of virtually any size or shape in a single process. Like any other desktop color label printer, the LX610e can also be fed with pre-die-cut labels or standard print-only labels.

The maximum print width of the LX610e is 104mm when using the die-cut feature and 127mm when using the pre-die-cut label stock printing option only.

Professional printing companies, label producers, advertising agencies, graphic design shops and other print providers will find the LX610e invaluable for producing accurate label samples, prototypes and short runs for customer approval before shipping. order expensive flexible or difficult to handle dies. Small businesses can print their own runs of hundreds or a few thousand custom labels, without incurring delays and die costs, while still shipping their longer runs to printing houses. This provides them with even more value and flexibility.

There are two different types of ink available for the LX610e color label printer. The water-based ink produces bright, vibrant colors that are perfect for quality label applications. Pigment-based ink prints labels that are slightly less glossy, but resist sunlight and water for years. Because the printer uses an ultra-high-capacity CMY ink cartridge, users will only need to replace and keep one item on hand instead of several. Plus, they get a brand new print head every time they change the cartridge, simplifying maintenance and dramatically reducing ongoing operating costs for cleaning and service.

An innovative printer is only as good as its software. Easy-to-use PTCreate Pro software that can be used with Mac and Windows. PTCreate Pro enables the rapid production of custom labels of virtually any size or shape, all in a single process. The automatic feature included in PTCreate Pro to automatically find the edges of the graphic to die cut is especially useful for printing and die cutting label designs, regardless of complexity, shape or size. Other tools include layers, exporting images, and cutting contours around intricate artwork. DTM Print only offers the LX610e in a package with this software and an additional roll of labels. This package is called LX610e Pro.

Furthermore, the LX610e supports a green and sustainable business idea with ultra-low power consumption, light weight by using less material, non-toxic ink supplies, as well as 100% recyclable components.

The sustainability of a container can be increased by using ecological labels. DTM Print has grouped its selection of ecological, recycled or natural labels under the new line of DTM EcoTec labels. At the moment, the following four materials are part of the EcoTec line: DTM EcoTec Hemp Paper, DTM EcoTec Grass Paper, DTM EcoTec Paper Matte Nature and DTM EcoTec Poly Clear Gloss R90.

“Producing exceptional product labels for all types of applications requires not only advanced and resource-friendly printing technology, such as our color label printers, but also high-quality material,” explains Albion Bekolli, DTM Print label specialist. “Every product leaves a footprint on our planet and using eco-friendly and sustainable label material helps keep it as small as possible.”
