Finland-based company UPM Raflatac has announced receiving global approvals for its OptiCut Direct Thermal Linerless RL50 range on Star Micronics’ mC-Label3 printers.

These verifications will further help the company to expand the performance of its label materials across the hospitality business sector and any segments under it such as quick-service restaurants.

The latest milestone comes after a series of extensive testing and approval processes to validate the efficiency and performance of UPM’s OptiCut label materials when combined with mC-Label3 printers.

Star Micronics is a printer manufacturing company, with a point-of-sale printer portfolio, including thermal, dot matrix printers, and mechanisms that are used for barcode, ticketing, receipt, and labelling requirements.

Star Micronics EMEA director and general manager Simon Martin said: “Star Micronics mC-Label3 linerless printers not only meet the evolving market demands for efficient label printing in the hospitality environment but also underscore our commitment to innovation and sustainability.

“The collaborative efforts have yielded excellent test results, revealing a seamless fit and synergy between our mC-Label3 printer technology and UPM Raflatac’s OptiCut label materials.

UPM said its linerless label has already been certified as a CarbonNeutral product for its complete life cycle.

The company is now focusing on further minimising its carbon footprint.

UPM New and Emerging Technologies global manager Marko Tiainen said: “We are committed to tailoring our label materials to their intended end-use environments.

“The Linerless OptiCut RL50, designed for the fast-paced hospitality kitchen, eliminates concerns related to adhesive build-up and printer dust.

“These label materials are engineered to securely readhere as needed, enhancing order accuracy for consumers, and streamlining kitchen operations.”
