With qualiy being at the heat of their manufacturing, it was important that their choice of coder provided the best quality print, as well as meeting the hygiene and speed requirements of production line. Four Linx 5900s, supplied by PT Asia, has been added to the existing complement of Linx CIJ printers at Kellogg, and are used to print traceability codes onto inner boxes of Cereal, Bars and Fruit Flavored Snacks.
The Linx 5900’s automated date and traceability software creates the date, with Kellogg own production system providing the rest of the data for the traceability codes. The IP55 rating of the Linx 5900 means that the printers can be safely washed down with the rest of the production line equipment at the end of each shift. The curved stainless steel enclosure allows liquids to run off without creating any ‘dirt traps’, thus meeting the company’s strict hygiene requirements. The Linx 5900’s self cleaning printhead means that the printer is ready to print first time, every time, which gives Kellogg a reliable printing solution with high quality codes.
