Continuous Inkjet Coder - Linx 7900

Are you paying more than you should on additional features for your current coding equipment? The Linx 7900 continuous inkjet range of printers offer advanced additional features as standard, providing value for money with no hidden costs.

The Linx 7900 industrial inkjet coder is an advanced printing machine which can be used in many different types of industries and for a wide range of coding requirements. Some examples of inkjet coding applications are as follows: printing lot or date codes onto high speed bottling lines, coding longer messages with more detailed information onto continuous pipe or extrusion lines, printing mutiple lines onto products at higher speeds and printing lighter colored pigmented inks onto opaque substrates.

The Linx 7900 inkjet coder is available as a pigmented inkjet coder and can be configured for high speed printing.

See the gallery below for more detail.

Linx 7900: Large colour user interface and prompted fields for quick and easy message creation. IP55-rated with a curved stainless steel enclosure.
Linx 7900: Large colour user interface and prompted fields for quick and easy message creation. IP55-rated with a curved stainless steel enclosure.
Sealed Printhead: The unique hermetically sealed printhead is adjustment free, increasing productivity and eliminating costly service calls. Predictable service intervals of up to 9,000 hours.
Full Keyboard: Integral QWERTY keyboard (full size) and 1/4 VGA back-lit colour display, printer status indicators (4 LEDs). Dynamic message and logo storage capacity (up to 1000 typical messages)
Traversing System:The 7900 can be incorporated into a traversing system to quickly and efficiently code across multiple items.
Various inks available: Range of inks available, including low evaporation, low taint, and a wide spectrum of colors - thus allowing to print on many substrates.
Excellent print tolerance: Even when surfaces are not flat or still (eg. moving bottles), and are 10mm or more away from the printhead
Air knife system: Integrated printhead and air knife system ensures that the print area on the bottle is dried prior to printing. - thus printing always occurs on the dried area, keeping your code quality consistently high.
Quality inks: Linx Black bottling ink 1058 penetrates condensation and provides good print quality and permanence right up to the point of its removal in caustic bottle washers
Various ink colors available: The CJ400 inkjet coder can use many different ink types and colors
Date and lot coding: The CJ400 inkjet coder is capable of printing 3 lines of information such as date coding, lot number coding, time data and text onto various types of substrates.
Small, compact and rigid design: Only 17.8 inches wide by 12.75 inches in depth by 14.3 inches high
UV Coding: Discreet or UV coding inks available for industries such as wine bottle coding or other discreet code applications
