Link showcases coding innovations at Pack Expo

24 August 2012

Linx Printing Technologies will be showcasing three of its latest innovations at Pack Expo 2012, to celebrate 25 years as world-class coding and marking specialists

And the company has launched a microsite dedicated to its Pack Expo presence, at www.linxatpackexpo.com, allowing delegates both to plan their visit in advance and get information about Linx solutions.

Visitors to the Linx microsite can also enter a draw to win a Linx CJ400 printer and register for a free Pack Expo pass. The Linx booth (S-2083) will feature models from Linx’s continuous ink jet (CIJ) printing, laser coding, case coding and thermal transfer printing ranges.

A major highlight will be the newly launched Linx 7900, the latest evolution in CIJ printers. It offers a wealth of features at no extra cost, including state of the art Linx Insight® software. This remote web interface allows users to monitor and control their Linx 7900 printers through a web browser, either via a PC or a web enabled smartphone. This facility is unique to the Linx 7900 and means busy operators can keep their line moving, wherever they are.

New ink system technology enables the Linx 7900 printer to run for up to 9,000 hours or 18 months between services. As the Linx 7900 is one of the most reliable CIJ printers on the market, it also comes with a warranty of up to 18 months at no extra cost. …/

Also on show for the first time, the new Linx IJ355 and IJ375 high definition case coders offer a cost-effective, easy to use alternative to other large character printers, and to the labelling or pre-printing of secondary packaging.

Their innovative ReFRESH® system, robust design, and printhead protection technology mean significantly reduced downtime and savings on consumables. In particular, the
ReFRESH system ensures premium print quality and also avoids wasted ink during printhead cleaning, thus saving time and money.

In addition, the Linx CJ400 CIJ printer, which can be won in the free prize draw at www.linxatpackexpo.com, will be demonstrated.

The radically new Linx CJ400 printer offers a number of world-class features including portability, fastest set-up times and ease of use. Key innovations include its Easi-Change® Service Module, which can be changed in minutes using on-screen prompts, without the need for a trained technician or service call, and the cleanest, most economical printhead, with cleaning intervals of up to three months. At just 13.5kg, it is also the lightest continuous ink jet printer on the market.

From its range of thermal transfer overprinters, Linx will show the Linx TT5, which has been designed to optimise productivity. It features a unique clutchless bi-directional ribbon drive that means minimal risk of ribbon breaks and no mechanical adjustments needed to maintain ribbon tension. Customers can enjoy superb code quality as well as a significant increase in production line uptime and lower cost of ownership.

Demonstrating the company’s capabilities in laser coding, the Linx SL101 and SL501 scribing lasers incorporate the innovative Visicode® technology, which delivers a much clearer code onto cold glass and ensures bottlers’ running costs are kept low without compromising on line speed.
