Linx printer scores a 10 for quality, performance and value
The ability of the Linx 10 printer to produce consistently high quality, reliable codes and its competitive pricing have made it the ideal solution for a recently-established contract liquid manufacturer, blender and labeller.
Mano Pack, based in Peterborough, offers blending, filling and packing services for liquid household chemicals and cosmetics. Its facilities include two filling lines, for single bottle (50ml -1,000ml) and multi head filling (1,000 – 5,000ml).
The company needed to ensure a quality code for every bottle it produces, both to meet customers’ compliance regulations and also ensure the code complements individual branding requirements. With a wide variety of products, flexibility and ease of set-up were also vital, as was the printer’s ability to produce consistently good codes, in particular after a period of inactivity.
The Linx 10 was able to satisfy all these needs and Ben Martin, the owner of Mano Pack, says the functionality of the printer and the professional code it delivers make it extremely good value for money.
“When I found out the price of the Linx 10, it was a done deal,” he confirms. “It’s a nice package, with no compromises, and flexible enough to cater for all my coding needs.”
The Linx 10 is producing one and two line codes, printing onto HDPE, PE and PET bottles. Another major benefit of the printer for these multi-product printing requirements is its integrated line speed sensor. This assesses the speed of the conveyor and adjusts the speed of delivery of the code to match, ensuring that each code is printed in the right place.
Fast and easy message setup is carried out via a colour touch screen that includes image-based code selection to reduce coding errors and speed up product changeovers.
The compact dimensions of the Linx 10 are a further benefit for Mano Pack, where space is limited, and they also mean the printer can be easily moved if required. The Linx 10 printer features a self-service wizard, enabling services to be carried out in-house based on the hours used, rather than on a regular pre-arranged basis, thus helping to manage costs.
“The Linx 10 delivers the high standard of code that meets my customers’ expectations,” concludes Ben Martin.
“It offers a better alternative and a more permanent code than label guns or simple label printers, and the quality of code has become a good selling point. The Linx 10’s versatility will also help to support my business as it continues to grow.”
