Thermal transfer printing – digital and flexible
Allen XL5000 – the introduction to digital product labeling
The XL5000 allows you to label products flexibly. It can easily handle frequent labeling changes and rapid production changeovers. Its strengths also include its large ribbon capacity, which results in very short downtimes. With its attractive price, the XL5000 offers industrial-grade labeling on a low budget.
Small and flexible
Operate your XL5000 printing system via the a:touch Lite control panel. This industrial-grade control panel with a touchscreen offers the possibility to control your printing system directly at the production line. Adjustments to the printer settings, changing the print image or querying and displaying the current status can easily be done via the panel.
We also offer other options for operating the XL5000. We will be happy to advise you personally in this regard.

Frequently asked questions regarding the Allen XL5000
Do you have further questions? Find more information here.
If you want to print on smooth material such as a packaging foil, product labels or paper, then a thermal transfer printer is the right choice for you.
The XL5000 is suitable for printing fixed data such as logos, text and barcodes, but also for changing data such as expiration dates, batch numbers, barcodes or texts.
Examples of this are prints on packaging foil or labels.
The XL5000 printing system supports both cycled and continuous printing. Which operating mode is right for you depends on your application.
If your machine stops for a short time after each product, you can print in intermittent mode.
If the material to be printed is always moving after the system is started, continuous printing is necessary.
The XL5000 printing system supports both printing modes and can be easily converted.
We provide Windows-based operating software for the printing systems free of charge. This software can be used to control the printing system from an existing PC.
If operation on the line is required, we can offer you the a:touch Lite and TouchPro control panels. These enable direct control of the printing system.
We offer you software for creating print images for our XL5000 printing systems free of charge (a:design). With this you can create, manage and send your print images to your printing systems.
Additionally, we provide drivers for all common print image design software on the market.
As an alternative, we also offer a Windows driver for our XL5000 printing system.
In addition to the printing system, you require a suitable support with counter-printing plate or counter-printing roll to integrate the printhead. The material to be printed is guided along this counter-printing plate or roll. We offer different solutions for integration into your system depending on the application.
To operate the printing system, you need a suitable thermal transfer ribbon, which must be selected to fit your product. For this purpose, we offer you the possibility to select the suitable ribbon by means of sampling.
The XL5000 printing system with its low installation height fits into almost any existing printing system support. Whether you want to replace an existing hot foil printing system with a digital solution or replace a thermal transfer printer, we have the right solution for you.
Get in touch with us, and we will be happy to review your application and discuss a replacement with you.
