Two new large character printers from coding and marking specialist Linx Printing Technologies can cut production costs while maximising line uptime and print quality.
The 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™ ink system, robust design, and printhead protection technology mean significantly reduced downtime and savings on consumables.
The patented ReFRESH system maintains premium print quality and also avoids wasted ink during printhead cleaning, thus saving time and money ordinarily wasted on purging procedures. Ink and dust that collect on the nozzles are removed with an ink purge and air knife, then ink from this procedure is collected, passed through a high performance filter to remove impurities from the system, and delivered back ready for printing.
The tough stainless steel nozzle guard protects the printhead from possible damage, caused by impact with the boxes on the line, whilst allowing the printhead close enough to the packaging to ensure superior print quality is maintained.
The stainless steel lower casing and printhead protection mean the Linx IJ355 and IJ375 are robust enough to cope with the busiest production line demands, delivering significant savings on consumables and in minimised downtime.
Jason Remnant, Linx Product Manager, says: “The ReFRESH system ensures the printer delivers quality print every time, without wasting a drop of ink.
Eliminating wasted ink is a hugely significant way of saving money. Some standard printhead cleaning techniques can waste enough ink in a single clean to code up to 2,000 boxes.
Added to that is the printhead protection - it is vitally important that Linx customers can rely on printheads with the longest possible working life.”
Error free coding is assured with the Linx IJ355 and IJ375’s full colour touch screen and trouble-free message creation software.
