Coding and marking specialist Linx Printing Technologies is to showcase its printing solutions to brewers at the International Brewery Convention.

The technologies are said to give brewers peace of mind in their coding operations thanks to low maintenance, cost-efficiency, speed and high-quality coding.

Models on display include Linx’s latest offerings in large character marking (LCM), laser coding, and continuous inkjet (CIJ) technology.

For LCM applications, the company’s range includes the Linx IJ200 thermal inkjet (TIJ) cartridge printer and the Linx IJ350 and IJ370 case coders.

The LCM printers offer brewers a cost-effective alternative to the labelling of secondary packaging.

They are also claimed to offer a low overall cost of ownership thanks to reduced maintenance and downtime, good reliability and ease of operation.

The Linx IJ200 uses disposable TIJ printer cartridges, which are easy to install and change, as well as minimising printer maintenance and removing the need to purchase expensive ribbons or labels.

For companies with higher throughputs, the Linx IJ350 (or its sister model, the IJ370) offers an ideal solution, featuring a self-cleaning printhead with a re-circulating system that avoids wasting ink and saves time ordinarily spend on ink-purging procedures.

The Linx SL501 50W laser is said to be a cost-effective and versatile coding solution that is ideal for the bottling industry.

The coder offers reducing running costs, reliability and flexibility in installation due to its standalone construction that does not require air or water for efficient operation.

The model is built to fit the production line.

Its range of lenses and beam delivery options means it can be manoeuvred into tight, hard-to-reach spaces.

An intuitive interface in the form of a handheld control unit allows users to create, change and set up codes at the touch of a button.

The Linx 7300 advanced CIJ printer will also be on display.

The Linx 7300 is designed to avoid the hidden costs of coding through low running costs, minimised production downtime, error-free coding and future proofing.

Among its features are dynamically adjusted service intervals to ensure customers’ maintenance requirements are based on the demands of their specific usage and factory environment, the Fullflush automatic printhead cleaning system, mistake-proof refills with the Surefill system, and error-free code changes with Quickswitch software.
