Linx Printing Technologies has expanded its portfolio of laser coders with the introduction of a new top-of-the-range CO2 steered beam model.
The Linx SLHP (Scribing Laser High Performance) produces superior quality codes at some of the fastest speeds currently available on the market – for example, in excess of 70,000 bottles per hour on a high speed bottling line. Its ability to produce complicated codes, such as GS1 which can include a 2D data matrix code, is especially suitable for pharmaceutical coding requirements.
The speed and power of the 120W laser mean there is a shorter dwell time on the product, reducing the chance of outside interference during the coding process to deliver the highest quality codes without errors. In addition, the combination of speed and power can create highly complex codes that are also permanent, making the coder ideal for anti-counterfeiting measures for high value goods, and to meet strict traceability requirements.
The Linx SLHP can operate over multiple lines, coding onto many different materials such as glass, PET, PVC and other plastics, rubber extrusions, painted surfaces, printed card, film and label, and tobacco products. This gives it the versatility to code a wide variety of information, including date, time, production details and legislative text, barcodes and logos, for both static and moving applications. End markets include premium alcoholic drinks, soft drinks, FMCG, cosmetics and perfumes, pharmaceuticals, automotive, electronics, building products and cabling.
Efficient use of the laser power prolongs the laser tube life, making this proven platform a long-term reliable coding option.
Equally important, the Linx SLHP has no consumables, with cooling of the coder achieved by a blower unit rather than by water cooling or factory air, which reduces operating costs.
The simple-to-use integral keyboard and display, featuring three level password protection, provides ease of set up and operation. The software includes several languages as standard, making the Linx SLHP ideal for global exporters.
With the arrival of the Linx SLHP, Linx now offers one of the widest ranges of laser coders, from entry level to high specification models, enabling the company to tailor solutions to individual customer needs.
"We believe the Linx SLHP is in a league of its own, thanks to its ability to deliver excellent quality codes – especially suitable for high value goods - at the fastest speeds", comments Matt Eastham, Laser Product Manager at Linx Printing Technologies.
"Its flexibility means it is the perfect choice for many different applications, in particular where lines are operating round the clock and where there is a high volume output. And its speed and versatility also make it future proof, allowing companies to diversify or expand their coding requirements without further investment."
Linx builds North American distribution for its range of coding and marking printers
Coding and marking specialist Linx Printing Technologies has appointed a number of new channel partners in North America to expand support for its product portfolio. As well as providing greater geographical coverage in this important territory, the new distributors offer expertise across a wide variety of market sectors and will help deliver the support and service end-user customers demand from their coding and marking printer suppliers.
A Linx 8900 Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) printer is delivering improved all-round coding quality to French confectionery manufacturer Gida Confectionery. The company – which uses the Linx 8900 to print up to three lines, including ‘Use before’ dates, on all its confectionery products – originally approached Linx France in search of a more reliable coder after experiencing technical difficulties with its previous solution.
A Linx 8900 Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) printer is being used for coding onto beer cans at a successful craft brewery in London. Since purchasing the Linx 8900 for its range of premium beers, Beavertown Brewery has praised the machine’s ease of use, compatibility with high-speed canning lines, and reliable operation in a damp environment.
Linx Printing Technologies has widened its range of specialist inks with the introduction of a new formula that meets the challenges of coding onto oily surfaces. Linx Black oil-penetrating ink 1062 is able to print effectively through light layers of oil onto a wide range of materials, including plastics, metal, glass and waxy surfaces. Linx 1062 ink also provides good adhesion on Oriented Polypropylene (OPP) and other plastic films, making it ideal for a variety of both industrial and food applications.
Linx extends Nigerian support
Coding and marking specialist Linx Printing Technologies is further strengthening its presence in Nigeria with the appointment of two new distributors. Nigeria is host to many multinational companies. The Linx product portfolio will help businesses of all sizes in their quest to minimise downtime and increase productivity on manufacturing lines in a variety of key industries including food & drink, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
New models extend laser coding capabilities
Linx Printing Technologies is launching two laser coders that will open up the benefits of the technology to more companies and applications. Key benefits of the new Linx CSL range are even faster printing speeds and greater versatility, making the coders ideal for a wider variety of products, along with quicker and easier installation and set-up that help to make laser coding simpler and more accessible.
Linx delivers long-term benefits for dairy company
Reliability and low cost of ownership are key factors in the success of two Linx 7900 CIJ (continuous ink jet) printers incorporating head traversing units which are printing 40,000 yogurt pots every hour at leading Israeli dairy company Tnuva Eilon Tavor.
The reliability, flexibility and efficiency of two Linx 8900 CIJ (Continuous Ink Jet) printers installed at leading aerosol manufacturer and filler LMA Services has been a key factor in allowing the company to increase the number of hours it operates its production lines - from eight to 16 hours per day - giving it the opportunity to take on more business.
