Linx FSL20 & FSL50 fibre laser coders

Linx FSL20 and FSL50 fibre laser coders offer a cost-efficient and hugely flexible coding solution across the widest range of materials and substrates for both static applications and moving production lines.

Permanent traceability

Linx Fibre lasers can permanently mark on a wide range of materials, including metal, rubber, plastic, and packaging foils.The very fine spot size creates excellent quality codes and makes Linx Fibre lasers ideal for marking very small components, or large amounts of information onto small areas.Text, machine readable codes, graphics and logos are all marked with extreme clarity for traceability; ideal for pharmaceutical, medical devices, automotive and electronics industries, as well as FMCG packaging.

With a choice of four different lenses, Linx Fibre laser coders can be tailored to the precise requirements of each product – whether for static or moving applications – which makes extremely efficient use of the laser with no compromise on code quality or speed.Faster line speeds can be achieved without buying a more powerful laser coder.

Easily integrated

The Linx FSL20 and Linx FSL50 have one of the smallest supply units and marking heads on the market, which enable easy integration into your existing line or static coding applications – with minimum disruption to existing workflows.

The choice of two beam orientation options (including a Beam Turning Unit which allows the head to rotate through 90°) also aids integration, allowing coding in any direction.An internal air cooling system also means no restriction on location.

Reduce downtime

As with all Linx coders, Linx Fibre lasers have a robust design which delivers continuous, reliable coding.

With a laser source lasting over 100,000 hours, and with no pump chamber maintenance needed, you will experience less downtime on your line.The air cooling system is also more energy efficient with less maintenance associated with alternative water-cooled lasers.

The IP54 rated marking heads are designed to work continuously in a wide range of environments.

Message creation is quick and simple with LinxDraw® software, via a colour touch screen or from a separate PC, meaning less time spent on product setup and changeovers.
