Coding and marking solutions for the extrusions industry

Linx has a long history of providing coding and marking solutions for the extrusions industry. Manufacturers have come to rely on our name and reputation for high-quality coding equipment.

Whether you are looking for simple product name or logo marking, part number, or international standards marking, Linx coders deliver accurate and durable coding on a broad range of substrates.

Reliability and quality for lower scrappage

Smudged, inaccurate or illegible codes can harm your bottom line and increase waste. Keep scrappage costs as low as possible with a reliable coding solution from Linx. Our coders are available in a range of IP ratings up to IP65 to offer protection against liquid and particle contamination, keeping your line moving reliably even in hot, dusty, or damp environments.

You can further reduce scrappage costs for plastic and rubber extrusions by using pigmented inks that provide superior clarity and contrast regardless of substrates. Light-fast codes will not fade during storage or when in use, and the excellent adhesive properties of our inks make marking possible before or after wet baths. Linx offers you durable coding with both continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers and permanent laser coding solutions.

Our equipment comes with an intuitive user interface for quick code creation and selection, minimising downtime between product runs. With large, easy-to-identify touchscreen symbols, and the option to store code lines and transfer them between other coders in the same series, Linx printers are easy to operate, even if you are new to marking extrusions. Equipment can be linked to a central PC for greater control, reducing the frequency of the manual errors that can occur when setting up lines.

Flexibility saves time

Coding and marking for extrusions need to be as flexible as possible to account for the variety of materials manufacturers might produce. Linx digital coders provide quick and simple code changes for less downtime compared to contact printing systems. Furthermore, clear coding meets industry and international code standards.

Linx systems offer more versatile coding to include the printing of logos, text, and large codes for extrusions. Our meter marking software delivers accurate code placement anywhere you need it, onto a range of substrates including plastics and rubber.

Coding solutions for plastic and rubber extrusions

Linx offers a full range of CIJ and laser marking solutions for coding for plastic or rubber extrusions. Our line of CIJ printers offers non-contact, digital coding that provides quick and accurate code changeovers. CIJ printers can be used with the range of pigmented inks that offer superior adhesion and contrast for a broad range of coloured materials, or with UV cure inks that provide excellent adhesion, light-fastness, and chemical resistance.

Linx laser coders deliver permanent, high-quality coding – for example, colour changes on PVC. We even offer specialist extractor systems for automatic fume removal. Our wide range of configurations provide flexible coding solutions with easy installation into your existing line, all enhanced with our easy-to-use LinxVision interface for quick and simple code setups. For economical coding, Linx laser coders do not require factory air, which also makes installation more flexible.

Linx large character printers can code up to 70mm high, delivering large character information for printing company logos or industry standards. Large character printers can print both text and graphics for high resolution printing onto porous materials, and are a cost-effective alternative to pre-printed labels and secondary packaging.
