The Linx SL1 is a compact, cost effective coder, designed to fit easily into production environments where space is constrained. The Linx SL1 scribing laser coder is highly flexible, with the ability to print a wide range of message types, including multiple lines of high quality text, logos and machine readable codes.
Fast, Flexible Coding Without the Cost
Thanks to an ultra-fast, lightweight mirror system, the Linx SL1 is much faster than other lasers in its class, using much less laser energy while coding, but delivering 20% more power. The result is longer laser tube life, reducing the unit’s total cost of ownership, as well as improving the unit’s reliability.
With no routine servicing or consumables, the lifetime costs of the Linx SL1 laser coder is favourable compared to other types of printer, with no variable costs.
The Linx SL1 is fast and highly flexible, with the ability to print two lines of code and a logo in the same time it takes equivalent coders to print just two lines of text.
Simple and Robust To Suit Any Production Line
The Linx SL1 is one of the most compact single-box, laser coding solutions on the market, allowing it to be installed with ease into tight areas. Weighing just 12.5kg, the unit takes just a single operator to move it into position.
The provision of four mounting points, down and straight shooter options and four different lenses means the Linx SL1 can be positioned in a wide variety of ways to suit any kind of product or packaging coding.
With four different lenses, the Linx SL1 also provides a wider range of marking fields than equivalent laser coders – code larger areas, or at faster speeds, or position the laser at a wider range of distances to the product.
The stainless steel enclosure adds more strength than other, plastic-based coders and provides added reliability in busy production environments.
High Quality Coding
With the ability to print multiple lines of text, logos and machine readable codes in a single message, the Linx SL1 is more versatile than other coders in its class. In addition to this, a wide range of fonts are supported, ensuring your codes perfectly compliment your packaging designs and branding.
The unit supports widely used 2D code standards including QR codes and dot matrix codes such as DotCode for the tobacco industry. All coding is permanent, making the Linx SL1 ideal for high value goods such as spirits or tobacco, which are susceptible to counterfeiting.
Using our LinxDraw® software, message creation and management is quick and easy. Coding can be created from a template on or offline, which can then be securely downloaded onto the laser when required. This makes a significant change from other coders with inflexible, built in user interfaces.
Integrated Ethernet connectivity and ‘good shot’ and ‘bad shot’ production line signals means the unit can be monitored in real time from a central location, offering customer confidence in laser operation and coding quality, reducing the need for manual checks.
