DTM Print launches new foil imprinter

30 September 2019

DTM Print, an international OEM and solution provider for specialty printing systems, has added the new FX510e Foil Imprinter for finishing and highlighting product labels. With the FX510e, printers can add brilliant, shiny metallic or laminated highlights to blank or already pre-printed labels, whether they have been produced by inkjet, laser, offset or flexo printing.

As the imprinting process is completely digital, virtually any design elements like borders, graphics, fonts and backgrounds can be printed. A fast and efficient, one-colour personalisation for POS or POI applications is possible, as well.

The FX510e differs far more than in mere appearance from the previous model, the FX500e. Besides a new chassis, the printer contains an internal multifunctional roll holder, allowing the use of rolls with a core of up to 3”. An external passive label unwinder mounted on roller bearings is included as well. It supports label rolls with a maximum size of 4.5" (114 mm), a core of up to 3" (76 mm) and an outer diameter of up to 10" (254 mm).

Metallic foils in gold, silver, blue and red are available for the FX510e, as well as various spot colours and clear foil. With the clear laminating foil partial glossy add-ons, comparable with a UV coating, can be applied to the product labels for logo design or graphical areas, for example.

As a special highlight, DTM Print offers a new thermal transfer label substrate for the FX510e: DTM Poly Clear Gloss TT. This substrate enables the production of crystal-clear product labels with imprinted elements.The new foil imprinter is available in two versions. Next to the standard model, the FX510e, there is the FX510ec, featuring a built-on guillotine cutter, which allows horizontally cut die-cutting, reflective and continuous label stock. Fast print speeds and a low purchasing price  allow users to quickly and cost-efficiently produce labels on-demand in the amount that is actually needed.

The FX510e is easy to set up and operate. Besides the passive label unwinder, the printer driver for Windows 7/10 is included along with the design software NiceLabel Free 2019 DTM Edition (for Windows) and four colour ribbon starter rolls (gold, silver, red and blue metallic).
