Linx SL102 – Laser Marking

The Linx SL102 is a high specification 10W CO2 scribing laser coder specially designed to be economical, yet versatile for a wide range of laser marking applications.

If you have a fast line with simple code requirements, or a slower line with a more complex code, then the Linx SL102 offers you the most flexible solution for quality coding onto a wide range of materials.

More versatile

  • Produces high quality text, graphics and Data Matrix codes onto a wide range of substrates
  • Choose from 3 different heads (each containing different sized mirrors for varying beam sizes) and up to 13 lens options. Your Linx laser coder can be tailored to meet your coding needs and make the most economical use of your laser
  • Choose between 10.6µm and 9.3 µm (ideal for PET) laser tubes for optimum coding on different substrates
  • Quickest digital galvo response time gives the laser more time to code
  • VisiCode® setting for producing the clearest code on cold glass whilst enhancing the laser life by making the most efficient use of the laser tube
  • Linx’s QuickSwitch® (optional) allows fast and easy code changes using a barcode scanner or other external device
  • Label Enable, used when coding on a label station, ensures the laser is triggered at just the right moment for coding the label
  • Control up to 4 lasers from one location with Linx QuadMark®

More reliable and economical

  • The longest tube life on the market (average of 45,000 hours) reduces your total cost of ownership
  • Service intervals typically twice that of the industry standard – keeps your line running for longer without interruption
  • IP54 rating – maximum reliability and uptime in challenging environments
  • No expensive factory air for cooling - unlike many alternative laser coders – even in demanding environments with high ambient temperatures
  • No costly consumables associated with other coding technologies – reduces your ongoing costs

More intuitive with LinxVision

  • Large colour touch screen user interface
  • WYSIWYG display with large icons and intuitive operation for fast and easy message creation.  Selected messages are clearly shown, reducing coding errors
  • Clear message select preview makes browsing the message database easy and ensures the right message is selected
  • Easy access toolbar allows quick modification of codes – reducing your down time
  • Fully configurable user and access rights control -  ensures users can only access system areas allocated to their responsibility - less room for errors
  • At a glance status reporting enables you to quickly understand the laser status;
  • Unique set-up wizard speeds up installation meaning you can quickly start enjoying the benefits of your Linx laser
