Bottle Coding

Linx bottle coding solutions are suitable for high volume coding of expiration dates and batch numbers, and are designed to print directly onto plastic or glass bottles in almost any orientation. With a range of pre-programmed codes, they can also print barcodes, datamatrix and qr codes onto bottle labels removing the need for pre-printed labels avoiding unnecessary waste and environmental impact.

With many years of experience in creating coding and marking equipment, we understand that bottle printing presents a number of unique challenges, from difficult to adhere surfaces and wet or dusty environments, to small circumference marking areas. Our products have been specifically designed to meet these challenges.

Linx bottle coders are used in a wide range of industries from beverage and cosmetics, to FMCG household products and chemical bottling. Our expertise in product and packaging marking & identification can help you to reduce costs and improve production rates.

Automate bottle printing

Bottle based production often requires high volumes, at Linx we realize that reliable and consistent product marking is critical as rework adds significant cost to product manufacture.

Our bottle printers and coders are designed to integrate with production line systems, able to cope with a variety of line speeds and with automated date, time & number series functions reduce manual interventions and therefore avoid line downtime.

We also have models capable of static marking and offer specialist coding solutions like UV visible inks or permanent laser marking suitable for luxury brands or anti-counterfeit product identification.

Our laser marking systems can also code directly onto hot or cold glass, so Linx have a product marking solution for all types of glass and coding requirement.

Printing on Bottle Caps

Many industries require coding of date/time and batch or lot numbers onto the bottle cap, rather than onto the bottle or label which often presents challenges of small circumference and hard to code materials.

Our bottle coders are also capable of printing onto metal and plastic caps with small character printing that is legible and consistent.
