A long-established UK personal care company is to buy two Linx CJ400 continuous ink jet printers after a successful trial on its production line. Potter & Moore Innovations Ltd was founded more than 250 years ago and is renowned for its classic bath and beauty products.
The company has been trialling Linx CJ400s to print codes onto a variety of different sized plastic bottles containing shampoo, foam bath and talcum powder, using Linx T551 Black high speed ink.
The printhead prints upwards onto the base of the PP/PE bottles and codes a single line batch code, with lines running for up to 80 hours per week.
The Linx CJ400 has also demonstrated that it is completely capable of maintaining reliable, clean running in the dusty environment of the talcum powder lines. Potter & Moore Innovations Ltd needs to move printers between different lines.
Potter & Moore Innovations Ltd needs to move printers between different lines. The Linx CJ400’s 13.5kg weight makes it easy to carry, while its ability to store messages for up to four lines was another key factor in the decision.
As a result Potter & Moore Innovations Ltd has confirmed it is to purchase two of the machines, replacing technology from a competitor manufacturer.
The Linx CJ400 was launched to the market in Summer 2011 and represents a major development for the coding and marking industry. It offers customers three-month intervals between printhead cleaning and is the most portable CIJ printer available.
