Printing on pesticides products

Pesticides are traditionally a seasonal business. Pesticides are produced in an extremely challenging environment. This business is generally run through distributor and retail market. During peak demand times the machines are pushed to the limit and during off-season will lie idle.   

  • Linx continuous inkjet printers are robust machines engineered to operate reliably even in harsh industrial conditions. Our printers operate reliably, are easy to use and have low total cost of ownership
  • In addition, due to variations in price and regulations between different states, print messages on pesticides and agrochemical products tend to change depending on the location and Linx Continuous Inkjet printers offer superior flexibility and reliability for these changing needs
  • Features like simple self-service moduleError free message selection without language barriers using product images, and printhead cleaning interval up to three months to reduce downtime and fluids consumption procedures reduce maintenance requirements and keep the printer running reliably.

Coding onto bags

The primary challenge in the pesticides industry is to get prints on pesticides bags which have diverse composition. Adhesion and durability are the most important criteria for selection of a printing and marking solution. Linx printers have the printers and inks to fulfil such applications. 

Coding onto bottles

Lately the demand for liquid pesticides has gained in our country. Many new and first time businesses in the pesticides industry tend to use bottles for pesticide fluids which can be sprayed directly. Linx printers are excellent when printing onto HDPE, PET bottles or glass bottles offering superior print quality on rounded smooth surfaces.

Coding on Labels

Linx printers code up to 6 lines of text, barcodes, symbols and numbers up to 20mm high, operating at speeds up to 9.10m/s. Such high speeds are ideal to code and mark information on high speed applications like winder-rewinder machines and direct filling stations. Linx printers deliver superior print quality at high speeds on labels.
