LONG BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 20, 2017 – Epson America today announced the ColorWorks® C7500 is the first color label printer to be certified by Applied Data Corporation (ADC), a leading provider of fresh item, recipe management, and scales management software to the grocery retail and food service industries. The Epson ColorWorks C7500 is certified for use with ADC’s Label Printing Manager that generates barcoded labels for non-weighted fresh food items in grocery or convenience stores, such as bakery or floral.

With the Label Printing Manager, store associates can utilize a networked PC-browser and the Epson ColorWorks C7500 on-demand color label printer to generate a barcoded label that can be affixed to a product’s packaging. The barcoded labels can be custom designed to replicate or enhance existing scale labels. The labels can include the same information as those labels printed by price lookup (PLU) computing scales, including price, nutritional facts, allergen warnings, and more.

“Certifying Epson’s ColorWorks C7500 is exciting for ADC, as we are now able to offer our customers color labels, allowing us to expand our label printing options,” said Mark Molter, Vice President of Sales, Americas. “Many of our customers are looking for new options to manage labels on their non-weighted fresh food items and this partnership offers them a turnkey system.”

As the first color label printer to be certified by ADC, the ColorWorks C7500 delivers fast, full-color, heavy production labels for busy, fresh food production, with minimal maintenance and a low overall cost of ownership. Built for reliable, high-quality performance with speeds up to 59 feet per minute1, the Epson ColorWorks C7500 is ideal for demanding, high-volume environments that require high-print-quality prime labels that are durable and cost-effective. Powered by PrecisionCore® print head technology, the durable, bench-top printer enhances print speed, image quality, ink durability, and color resolution with the flexibility to cost-effectively scale up production – saving up to 50 percent in total labeling costs versus preprinted labels – for higher volume industrial and manufacturing applications.

“This certification offers ADC’s customers an on-demand color labeling solution ideal for clam shell labels and shelf tags for delis, bakeries and more,” said Andrew Moore, product manager, Epson America, Inc. "With the growing trend for on-demand color labels in the food and beverage industry, the combined solution not only allows ADC's customers to create high-quality color labels, but also helps them with branding their products and meeting label compliance."
