    Primera Introduces Bravo 4200-Series Disc Publishers

    26 July 2017

    Primera Technology has announced its new Bravo 4200-Series disc printers and disc publishers. The Bravo 4200 series automates the process of burning and printing quantities of recordable CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs with built-in robotics and either single or dual optical drives.

    After data is burned, the discs are transported to a high-speed, high-resolution full-color disc printer. A single ink cartridge is used instead of four tanks for CMYK, simplifying operation and maintenance. The devices can handle up to 100 discs per job.

    "Users of optical media now have another great range of rugged, automated disc publishers available to them," said Mark D. Strobel, Primera's vice president of sales and marketing. "We believe that Primera has sold more disc publishers than any company in the history of the business. Bravo 4200-series will continue that tradition in a wide variety of applications where performance and reliability along with an affordable machine and supplies cost are important."

    HIGHLIGHTS

    Highlights of the Bravo 4200 include:

    • USB 3.0 for the fastest possible recording speeds
    • Support for CD-R, DVD-R and BD-R media
    • One high-yield, tri-color ink cartridge
    • 4800 dpi print quality
    • Compatible with Windows 7/8/10+ and Mac OS X 10.7+

  3. ‘World’s smallest, lightest, all-in-one printer’ to go on sale

    The world's smallest all-in-one printer by Primera.

    LAS VEGAS — Finally, a chance for traveling business people and consumers to strike “I’ll print it when I get back to the office” from their vocabulary.

    How many times do we find ourselves out in the field,  knee-deep in a project, suddenly realizing we need to print, scan or copy a document?

    While most people carry tablets, smartphones and laptops, few think to lug around a printer. Well, now, thanks to the folks at Minnesota-based Primera Technology, you can print multiple pages, even print in color.

    “Until now, portable printing has never really been practical,” said Mark Strobel, Primera’s vice president of sales and marketing.

    Strobel says current page-size portable printers are heavy and bulky. The smallest machines print only in black monochrome with low print resolution on old fax-style thermal paper that curls, fades in sunlight and scratches easily.

    Strobel calls the new product — the Primera Trio, which was introduced at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas — “a true road warrior’s dream.”

    He calls the Trio the world’s smallest and lightest portable all-in-one printer, since it prints, copies and scans.

    The unit is roughly the size of a hardcover book, weighs just under three pounds and fits easily into computer bags, backpacks and briefcases.

    Designed for business and leisure travelers,  it scans and prints on standard paper, using Primera’s own proprietary cartridges.

    It can process multiple documents at 14 pages per minute.  It can print text, graphics and photo-quality images on plain paper with up to 4800 dpi print resolution. Postcards, invitations and 4″ x 6″ borderless photos can be printed by using a rear feed slot.

    The sleek design keeps the

  4. Primera Introduces Bravo 4200-Series Disc Publishers

    Bravo 4200-series printers and disc publishers automate the process of burning and printing quantities of recordable CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs while using the latest in inkjet printing technologies.

    Primera Technology, Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of specialty digital printers, announced its new Bravo 4200-Series Disc Printers and Disc Publishers for the meetings and conventions industry. The Series Disc Printers and Disc Publishers make it quick and easy to make copies of meeting notes, presentations, panel discussions, and provide important information for those present or absent from meetings and conventions. 

    Starting at just $1995 MSRP (USA and Canada), Bravo 4200-series printers and disc publishers automate the process of burning and printing quantities of recordable CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. Using built-in robotics, discs are transported one at a time into either single or dual optical drives. After data is burned, the discs are transported to a high-speed, high-resolution full-color disc printer. The process repeats itself for up to 100 discs per job. 

    Bravo 4200 features the latest in inkjet printing technology from Funai Electric Company Ltd. Just one ink cartridge needs to be replaced instead of four tanks for CMYK, simplifying operation and on-going maintenance. This is especially important in applications such as PACS/DICOM systems in hospitals, police car video archival and other mission-critical applications where running out of even one color of ink shuts down the entire process. It also makes it easier to maintain just a single SKU instead of four as on previous models from Primera and others. 

    Despite the decrease in sales to consumers of physical discs containing pre-recorded music or movies, optical media continues to thrive in a host of varied applications. Just a few include military,

  5. BevNET: Primera Introduces LX2000 Color Label Printer

    Primera Introduces LX2000 Color Label Printer

    LX2000 is Primera’s fastest-ever desktop color printer. It produces labels at speeds of up to 6” per second – about 25% faster than Primera’s best-selling LX900 Color Label Printer (for comparable print quality).

    Plymouth, MN – Primera Technology, Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of specialty printers, announced its new LX2000 Color Label Printer.

    LX2000 is Primera’s fastest-ever desktop color printer. It produces labels at speeds of up to 6” per second – about 25% faster than Primera’s best-selling LX900 Color Label Printer (for comparable print quality).

    Large, separate ink cartridges for cyan, magenta, yellow and black keep the cost per label low. Other features include pigment-based ink for stronger resistance to UV light, chemicals and water, built in “pizza-wheel” cutter, viewing window to see label stock levels and wired Ethernet or USB 2.0 and wireless connection options.

    “LX2000 represents an entirely new product class in desktop label printing,” said Mark D. Strobel, Primera’s vice president of sales and marketing. “With large ink tanks we can offer an extremely competitive cost per label. Our print speeds rival printers that cost up to three times more. We have pigment ink that has far more resistance to water, chemicals and UV light. Print quality is superb.  Add to that our wired Ethernet or USB 2.0 or wireless connection options, along with 8” print width and you’ve got everything most companies would ever need. With LX2000, there are only benefits and no compromises.”

    Typical applications include product labels for coffee, wine, water, bakery, confectionary, meat, cheese and hundreds of other specialty and gourmet foods. LX2000

  7. CoffeeTalk Magazine Features Primera's AP550 Flat Surface Label Applicator for Coffee Bags.

     

    Primera’s AP550 Flat Surface Label Applicator is a semi-automatic label applicator that makes it fast and easy to precisely apply product and identification labels onto a wide range of flat surfaces such as rectangular or tapered bottles, boxes, packages, bags, pouches, lids, tins and much more. Labels are applied straight without wrinkles or folds in exactly the location desired. This gives finished products a highly professional look and significantly increases the number of containers that can be labeled per hour versus manually applying labels.

    Operation is simple: place the container in the mechanism and pull the arm to the container and the label is automatically applied. Variable spacing, memory for up to nine jobs, and a counter with built-in LED display are all included. No air-pressure supply is required which can be a significant advantage over other label applicators that require expensive, noisy and maintenance-prone air compressors.

    Apply Labels Fast and Accurately
    With an AP550 Flat-Surface Label Applicator you’ll be able to apply labels at speeds of up to 500 per hour. Labels are perfectly applied without wrinkles, giving your finished products a highly-professional appearance.
    AP550 is the perfect accessory for labels produced by Primera’s popular LX- and CX-Series color label printers and digital label presses. Together, they provide a complete print-and-apply solution that’s ideal for a wide range of small to medium-sized businesses. Roll printed labels by other methods such as flexographic, offset and thermal transfer can also be applied with the applicator. For round containers such as bottles, cans and jars, Primera also offers its top-selling AP360 and AP362 Label Applicators.
