Plexo! Family of Two Color Label Printers - Print Labels in 2 Colors
Print GHS Labels in 2 Colors with Variable Information
Remember when barcode label printers could only print one color at a time? Now you can print any label in two colors, with the Plexo! two color label printer family. Print labels with two-color graphics, barcodes, and variable fields that pull information directly from a database or production system.
The Plexo! family is especially ideal for printing GHS labels, where red and black pictograms, chemical names, and precautionary statements must be printed in color on hazardous chemical labels.
Each Plexo! label printer is backed by QuickLabel's Plexo! Lifetime Warranty and QuickSwap™ Repair and Replacement Program.
More Product Information:
QuickLabel Systems is known for its color label printers and barcode label printers. Now you can have the best of both worlds. The Plexo! family is a line of two color label printers that operate just like barcode label printers. If you’re familiar with printing labels from a barcode printer, you’ll find it comfortable and easy to print two color labels with a Plexo! color label printer.
Two Color Label Printer Models:
GHS Label Printing in Two Colors:
When the EC declared December 2010 as the date by which all chemical manufacturers must comply with GHS labeling regulations, it did not describe a way to put its regulations into effect. How can chemical processors who have dozens or hundreds of different products suddenly begin to make GHS chemical labels in two colors, with a unique black and red pictogram symbol, signal word, hazard statement, and precautionary statement for each chemical? The costs of printing these labels and storing them in inventory could be astronomical, and could easily result in labeling errors when operators retrieve stock to apply labels to each product.
That’s why QuickLabel offers the Plexo Family, capable of printing GHS labels in two colors. The Plexo! printers allow you to print any label content on-the-fly, including barcodes and unique, variable information. QuickLabel also offers the Vivo! Touch for printing GHS labels in 4 colors through CMYK process color label printing.
Low Cost per Label with Ribbon Saver:
The Plexo! printers use standard thermal transfer labels and thermal transfer ribbons, allowing you to select the most cost-effective media for your label printing project. The Plexo! printers also have a hardware advantage: a built in ribbon saving mechanism. When you print labels in two colors, you may find that one color is used in a small area, as is the case with GHS labels, where the red portion of the GHS pictogram is in a small spot on the label. In that situation, your Plexo! will conserve the use of thermal transfer ribbon, saving you money.

Labels and Thermal Transfer Ribbons for the Plexo! Family:
The Plexo! 453 & 653 offer some label printing advantages due to its unique thermal transfer printer technology: the ability to print long-lasting, durable labels and the ability print labels in the color white, and in special, dedicated colors including metallic gold and silver. This is possible because, instead of using inkjet ink or laser toner, the Plexo! 453 & 653 use color thermal transfer ribbons as printing ink. With the largest inventory of colored thermal transfer ribbons in the world, QuickLabel sells over 70 different formulations of thermal transfer ribbons in a rainbow of colors.

Labels printed by the Plexo! 453 & 653 are finished, dry, and need no additional finishing. Users can printed directly on pre-die cut label materials, producing a range of label shapes and sizes. Request a quote on labels to supply a Plexo! Family label printers.
Compatibility with a wide range of thermal transfer labels and tag materials, including both pressure sensitive paper label materials and synthetic label materials that are not compatible with other printing technologies, is another advantage of color thermal transfer printing. Many rollstock packaging films are compatible with the Plexo! 453 & 653 label printers.

Software & Accessories for the Plexo! Family:

An integrated label cutter and cutter-stacker can be connected via a USB port located on the front panel.
