The NeuraLabel 300x color label printer prints high resolution (up to 2400 dpi) full color labels ranging from 1.5 to 8.5 inches wide. Based on HP Pagewide print head technology and HP pigment inks, the NeuraLabel 300x is fast and versatile.
NeuraLabel 300x Color Label Printer Overview
The NeuraLabel 300x is a pigment-based inkjet label printer that produces smudge-free, full color industrial labels, packaging, labels, and GHS labels on demand. With its pigment inks, the NeuraLabel 300x meets BS5609 certification standards for printing GHS labels that resist abrasion, long-term immersion in seawater, and UV exposure. Using compatible GHS label stock, labels printed on the NeuraLabel 300x can withstand the harshest of environmental conditions including long-term immersion in sea water.
Thanks to HP Pagewide print head technology and the printer’s stationary print head, the NeuraLabel 300x can reach print speeds up to 20 inches per second. It accepts a variety of label types including paper and synthetic film (vinyl, chemical, BOPP, and PET) label materials. The standard 300x prints on fanfolded or sheet-fed label media. An optional unwinder/rewinder system for the NeuraLabel 300x is available to convert the label printer into a high speed digital GHS label press.
The NeuraLabel 300x is commonly used to print hazardous materials labels, GHS labels, product labels, carton box labels, inventory tags, barcodes, packaging labels, shipping labels, retail tags, badges, name tags, and more.
The 300x can also produce prime labels such as beer and wine labels, coffee and tea labels, candy labels, candle labels, water bottle labels, aromatherapy labels, soap labels, shampoo labels, gourmet food labels, and more.
Who Should Buy the NeuraLabel 300x?
Built for industrial use, the NeuraLabel 300x is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses that need a versatile, fast, and professional label printing solution. With its speed and 8.5-inch media width, the NeuraLabel 300x is an excellent choice for printing large quantities of wide GHS labels such as chemical drum labels or pool supplies labels as well as large prime labels for big items such as dog food, kitty litter, and bulk goods.
Business looking for a label press should consider the 300x. The 300x is the lowest cost 8.5” wide label press in the market. It’s a great add-on to a label cutter and finishing system.
NeuraLabel 300x Strengths
The NeuraLabel 300x excels at printing high volumes of up to 8-inch-wide full color industrial labels, including GHS labels and prime labels. It’s fast with speeds of up to 20 inches per second. Its print quality is beautiful with a resolution of up to 2400 dpi. It’s versatile, printing a wide variety of industrial and GHS labels on paper and synthetic media. The NeuraLabel 300x prints labels that dry instantly without smudging or smearing. It can also be converted into a digital label press with the purchase of an optional unwinder/rewinder system. Optional software, Wasatch SoftRIP color enhancement software, is available specifically for the NeuraLabel 300x.
The 300x color label printer uses four individual color ink cartridges: black, cyan, magenta, and yellow to reduce waste. Each cartridge holds 100 milliliters of ink, so they are perfect for high volume environments.
While many industrial label printers on the market work only with Windows-based computers, the NeuraLabel 300x is compatible with modern Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems.
There’s no print head replacement needed. The original print head is good for the life of the printer.
Optional onsite service warranty is offered, which is provided through HPs global service organization. Onsite can be purchased for up to 2 years with printer purchase.
NeuraLabel 300x Weaknesses
The NeuraLabel 300x is more expensive than some of the other 8-inch GHS label printers on the market (like the Epson GP-C831 color label printer or Primera LX2000/LX1000). The print speed of the 300x alone makes a big difference compared to the Primera LX2000. The 300x is much faster. Plus, the ink cost on the 300x is also lower, with no print head replacement cost.
In order to use it as a label press, the optional unwinder/rewinder system must be purchased. Otherwise, you can only use sheet-fed or fanfold sheets.
If you are printing pre-die cut labels on the 300x, it only supports black eyemark for detection. GAP detection is not currently supported.
Labels under 3 inches wide can be printed using an optional adapter. Otherwise, the base unit requires labels media from 3 inches to 8.5 inches.
The 300x lacks a built-in label cutter. Upon completing a print job, you basically need to print a couple of extra labels, so that the print job can run through the paper path.
NeuraLabel 300x Costs
The NeuraLabel 300x retails for $4995 USD. Its ongoing costs include replacement ink cartridges and label media. There is no print head replacement cost.
