Linx Printing Technologies’ ability to provide cost-effective coding and marking solutions across a wide variety of applications will be demonstrated at Interpack on stand 11C58, where the company will showcase models across its many different ranges of equipment and technologies.
Underlining Linx’s ongoing commitment to continual and proactive new product development, highlights will include the newest additions to the company’s continuous ink jet (CIJ) printers and laser coders, which represent significant advances in the technologies, along with examples from its thermal transfer, thermal inkjet and case coder ranges.
The full range of Linx laser coding solutions will be on display including the newly launched Linx CSL10 and CSL30. These new coders have opened up the benefits of laser to more companies and applications. Key benefits are even faster printing speeds over previous models 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.
The recently-launched Linx 8900 series and Linx 10 have both further extended the capabilities of CIJ printing. The Linx 8900 has been designed to provide the highest levels of ease of use and help maximise efficiencies during production for valuable cost and time savings. As part of Linx’s policy of continuous improvement, a number of new features have now been introduced.
These include the first-in-class Advanced System Monitoring which provides a continual check of the printer’s operation in terms of ink system running parameters and environmental conditions to maximise efficiencies. The new Production Schedule enables the printer to print a sequence of different messages automatically, for example in dairy applications where the printhead is traversing across multiple lanes of products. User Defined Date Formats deliver even greater coding flexibility by allowing users to create their own customised date and time formats. This is particularly beneficial to operations coding many different products, for example contract packers, who need to meet differing customer requirements for code content and layout.
The new Linx 10 is a compact and totally portable entry-level CIJ printer. It has been particularly designed for smaller businesses that need to code products for the first time or whose potential for business growth is hampered by the use of less flexible, non-digital coding methods. The portability of the printer also means it can be used as a back-up machine for experienced CIJ users, which can quickly be moved and set up wherever required, and its compact dimensions will benefit packing lines where space is an issue.
Linx’s thermal transfer, thermal inkjet and case coder ranges will also be demonstrated. The Linx IJ375 case coder is able to cut production costs while maximising line uptime and print quality for the coding of secondary packaging. Its patented ReFRESH® ink system, robust design and printhead protection technology mean significantly reduced downtime and savings on consumables.
For coding onto packaging such as boxes, trays and sleeves, the Linx TJ725 thermal inkjet printer incorporates Simply Smart Technology® to offer a high resolution digital coding solution. Linx’s innovative Active Cartridge Care System® saves money and cuts waste by slowing the nozzle drying process, making first prints more reliable every time.
The Linx TT5 thermal transfer overprinter offers superb code quality along with a significant increase in production line uptime and a lower cost of ownership. Its unique clutchless bi-directional ribbon drives minimises the risk of ribbon breaks and the need to make mechanical adjustments to maintain ribbon tension.
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.
Easy-to-use Coders can cope with demanding applications
Linx Printing Technologies is extending its recently-launched Linx 8900 CIJ (continuous ink jet) printer with the introduction of two models which further enhance the range’s capabilities in a wide variety of markets including food and drink, cabling, bottling, extrusions and contract packing.
