The reliability and ability of the Linx IJ355
outer case coder to operate in dusty
conditions have made the printer the ideal
solution for Serbian-based Strauss Adriatic,
part of the international Strauss Group and
one of the largest coffee producers in the
The Linx IJ355 is being used to code production
and best before dates onto cases of pre-packed
coffee distributed throughout the region. The
coder, supplied by Linx distributor Insignis Ing
d.o.o., was selected after a detailed analysis
by Strauss Adriatic of the choice of models and
technologies available and following its excellent
performance during a one month trial.
The Linx IJ355 has been designed to cut production
costs while maximising line uptime and print quality
for the coding of secondary packaging. Key to its
reliable operation in difficult environments is its
patented ReFRESH® system, which maintains
premium print quality and avoids wasted ink during
printhead cleaning. Ink and dust that collect on
the nozzles are removed with an ink purge and
air knife, then ink from this procedure is collected,
passed through a high performance filter to remove
impurities, and delivered back ready for printing.
This helps to minimise downtime while delivering
important savings in consumable costs.
The machine’s durability is further enhanced by its
tough stainless steel nozzle guard that protects the
printhead from potential damage caused by impact
with boxes on the line. At the same time, it allows
the printhead to be positioned close enough to the
pack to ensure superior print quality is maintained.
Strauss Adriatic cites no downtime, no mess and
reliability as the key benefits of its new IJ355.
