Epson GP-C831 Discontinued and Replaced by the New Epson ColorWorks C6500A

Posted by Jim on 27th Jul 2020

The Epson GP-C831 8-inch colour label printer has had a long run as a leading GHS chemical drum label printer. When it first hit the market, the Epson GP-C831 enabled Canadian businesses to print their own full color industrial and GHS BS5609-certified labels in house. The GP-C831 was a game changer and is a workhorse in the industry. As inkjet technologies continue to evolve, the Epson GP-C831 color label printer has been discontinued.

Fortunately, its successor, the new Epson ColorWorks C6500A 8-inch colour label printer with auto cutter, is a worthy replacement. This colour GHS label printer has everything you loved about the GP-831 and more.

-Label Types — The Epson ColorWorks C6500A prints GHS BS5609-certified labels, industrial labels, barcodes, tags, tickets, and other smudge-proof, water- and oil-resistant labels on demand. It accepts large label rolls (no more tractor feeder), continuous labels, and pre-diecut labels. The CW-C6500A uses removable media spindles for even easier media handling.

-Print Quality — The CW-C6500A has a higher print resolution at up to 1200 dpi compared to just 720 dpi with the GP-C831. It uses Epson PrecisionCore TFP Serial printhead technology for crisp graphics, text, and barcodes.

-Print Speed — The Epson ColorWorks C6500A colour label printer can reach speeds of up to 5 inches per second.

-Other Improvements — The CW-C6500A can be centrally managed with remote management tools; includes a general purpose applicator I/O port; and has robust compatibility with ZPL II, ESC / Label, Windows, Linux, Mac OS, SAP, and other major middleware.

Whether it’s time to upgrade an older Epson GP-C831 color label printer or you’re new to the 8-inch GHS colour label printer market, the new Epson ColorWorks C6500A colour label printer is an affordable and reliable choice.
