Linx SL1

Linx SL1

10 W Compact Laser Coder

The Linx SL1 is a compact, cost effective coder designed to fit easily into production environments where space is constrained. An ultra-fast mirror system enables faster coding than other lasers in its class, while using much less laser energy but delivering 20% more power. No routine servicing or consumables means the lifetime costs of the Linx SL1 laser coder is favourable compared to other types of printer, with no variable costs.

Key benefits

  • Affordable laser coding - no consumables or routine servicing
  • Designed to deliver enhanced reliability
  • Longer operating lifetime than equivalent lasers
  • Mix text, logos and machine-readable codes in a single message
  • Wide range of fonts to compliment packaging design and branding
  • Easy installation into tight production lines
  • Supports 2D code standards including QR and dot matrix codes
  • Wider range of marking fields than equivalent laser coders
