To meet businesses’ needs for on-demand color labels at a low cost, Epson has introduced its newest ColorWorks® on-demand color label printer. Purpose-built for mid- to high-volume batch runs in on-demand environments, the new ColorWorks CW-C8000 offers exceptional print quality, reliable performance and high-speed printing with advanced connectivity and cloud printing.

Offering a range of advanced features, the ColorWorks CW-C8000 builds on the success of its predecessor, the ColorWorks C7500, to meet the high-volume label production needs of businesses in several markets, including prime and boutique, product ID, and warehousing and logistics.

“The CW-C8000 is built for the rapidly growing industrial label market that relies on fast printing and high image quality to meet product label requirements,” said Stevi Sterns, product manager, Label Printers, Epson America, Inc. “Delivering accurate colors, smooth gradations, precise barcodes, and sharp text, this new model is built to inspire businesses to ‘Do Labels Differently™’ by breaking free from the conventional and embrace the new era of label printing.”

Epson ColorWorks on-demand label printers are designed to help businesses ‘Do Labels Differently’ with full-color capabilities, single-step simplicity and powerful PrecisionCore® technology to produce state-of-the-art, high-quality labels in real time, eliminating the need for excess inventory and potentially reducing pre-printed label waste.

With advanced PrecisionCore Heat-Free technology, the CW-C8000 combines exceptional image quality and sharp precision at incredible speeds. The PrecisionCore permanent printhead allows for minimal user interventions and low maintenance costs, making it ideal for busy, on-demand environments. Durable, high-performance UltraChrome® DL pigment inks provide high-quality, long-lasting labels and customers can choose between Gloss and Matte Black ink to fit labeling needs. New high-yield ink packs, providing 1.9L total ink capacity,1 are ideal for high-volume batch runs, allowing for fewer interventions, low cost per milliliter and low consumable waste.

Additional features include:

  • High-speed, on-demand color labels – Designed for mid- to high-volume batch runs, multiple labels can be printed with variable data at speeds up to 12-inches per second.2
