They were experiencing high maintenance with their white ink printer due to ink build-up, and required an easier-to-use and more efficient solution.

After installing the Linx 8940 Spectrum with white ink, Brucom have noticed a considerable reduction in cleaning and greater efficiencies. The printhead does not require daily cleaning and the interface is easier to use due to the touchscreen, making code set up fast. The ease of use of the printers and clear print ensures they deliver a quality result for their customers.

“At the end of the day we put it into idle, and then first thing in the morning, it’s ready to rock and roll. I can’t fault it, it’s easy to use and you get a clear print, which is just what we want for our customers”
