Afinia L501 Colour Label Printer

Discontinued and replaced by the Afinia L502



  • The Afinia Label L501 is the first colour label printer with Duo Ink Technology, meaning its designed to use both pigment and dye inks to create waterproof and highly vibrant labels. Utilizing HP thermal inkjet technology allows this dual-ink feature. This offers a quick transition from ultra vibrant and colourful prints, to ultra-durable and waterproof label with a simple printhead swap.
  • Pigment or Dye Inks –

Pigment-based prints are highly resistant to the challenges of moisture, abrasion, sun-fading, and extreme temperature. This makes the Afinia L501 perfect for packaging requiring GHS compliance, as well as those with high exposure to moisture, such as beverages and bath products.

The Afinia L501’s dye-based prints are high-impact, colourful, and vibrant, making them ideal for key labelling applications, such as in retail environments.

  • HP Duo Ink Technology –

Enjoy the durability of pigment and the vibrancy of dye inks in the same printer. The Afinia L501’s ink interchangeability offers a level of versatility never before experienced in the label printing world.

HD recommends the L-501 to those needing a durable, high quality label in quantities up to around 2000 labels per week.

Customers who this has been a great solution for include cosmetics producers, chemical labelling and Vape labellers.

If you are producing larger quantities then you might want to look at the L801 Plus or the L901
