Epson strengthens LabelWorks line-up with the multi-purpose industrial Z5000 series label printers

Epson today announced the newest additions to its LabelWorks label printer range, the Epson LabelWorks Z5000 series or LW-Z5000WA in white and LW-Z5010BA in black⁠—two new multi-purpose and economical industrial label makers suitable for a broad range of industries and applications.

The Z5000 series can print labels on a wide variety of materials such as Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Vinyl, Heat Shrink Tube (HST) as well as magnetic tape, making it suitable for producing labels for all types of applications that are suitable for indoor or outdoor conditions. Capable of a label width print range from 6mm up to 50mm, the LW-Z5000WA and LW-Z5010BA produce high-quality labels that can stand harsh industrial and manufacturing environments.

Built for industries with high-volume print requirements, the LabelWorks Z5000 series boasts of a 300dpi print resolution with superb print speeds of up to 50 mm/sec[1], allowing users to create labels with confidence and ease. With easy to replace consumables, a simple Bulk Roll (BR) label roll kit design, and a 4.3” WQVGA colour LCD touch panel[2] and keyboard, the Z5000 series offers hassle-free set up, easy label editing and a smoother operating experience to minimize production downtime.

The LW-Z5000WA and LW-Z5010BA allow customers to enjoy lower total cost of ownership after using just 2 pieces of BR label roll kit versus label cartridges. Cost per print is reduced with up to 50% savings compared to label cartridges, and up to 80% compared to competing thermal transfer label roll/ribbon offerings[3].

The LW-Z5000WA and LW-Z5010BA are compatible with all existing Epson LK label cartridges[4] and new BR label roll kit which are highly durable and has passed third-party testing for strong adhesive, humidity, water, temperature, chemical and scratch resistance to address challenging label printing demands while giving customers peace of mind.

To make label printing more cost-efficient, the Z5000 series also supports Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, allowing businesses to set up one printer for an entire workgroup and to print from anywhere when connected to the same network. Users can also print a wide range of industrial labels including those that require barcodes, QR codes and sequential alpha and numeric coding through the Epson Label Editor software, Epson iLabel and Epson Datacom mobile applications.

The LW-Z5000WA and LW-Z5010BA also offer increased productivity with an auto label rewinder unit as well as a full- and a half-cutter as options to allow users to print and peel labels easily.

“The versatility of the LabelWorks LW-Z5000WA and LW-Z5010BA makes it perfect for businesses that require a multitude of labels to fit a variety of conditions–from extreme heat or weather to essential safety labelling or inventory management. Its ability to consistently deliver high volume printing without compromising label quality offers businesses the solutions they need to tackle essential labelling jobs, anywhere or anytime labels are needed,” said Daisuke Hori, Managing Director, Epson Malaysia.

The LW-Z5000WA and LW-Z5010BA are now retailing at RM 2,300 and RM 3,100 respectively. To learn more about Epson products, kindly visit the website at
