Linx’s range of printers have options to code onto almost any substrate. Primary and secondary packaging can both be coded in one facility, giving co-packers flexibility to keep production moving in-house. Whether a manufacturer is looking for permanent printing solutions or even food-grade inks, Linx industrial marking printers help co-packers adjust to changing customer printing applications.


Quick and accurate set-up, on-screen service guides, and self-installation are some of the key features that keep Linx’s advanced printing technology user-friendly. With touchscreens standard on all printers, message creation, printing, and routine servicing is kept simple for contract packaging manufacturers.
