Due to the often-harsh nature of the bottling environment, beverage manufacturers and bottle packers must choose their equipment wisely: fragile or temperamental coders will not survive wet, dusty or sugary environments, and will need replacing frequently. This means more downtime, regular expenses, and a decrease in productivity. Naturally, this is something that professional bottlers wish to avoid at all costs. The new Linx 8940 CIJ printer can help.
Choosing the right ink for your coding application
When choosing an ink for coding purposes, there are five key areas to consider:
But do you know what they are and why they are so important?

Dye vs pigmented inks – which ink suits your needs?
Choosing the most appropriate ink for your application is a critical decision to ensure that the very best message quality and durability is achieved. Often the type of ink you need will determine which ink jet printer you buy. Therefore understanding the properties of the inks available is important.
How high powered laser coders help you to meet your high line-speed requirements
Large scale manufacturers with high volume output often require high speed production lines to meet their targets. It’s therefore essential that all components on a line are able to perform at the same high standard, avoiding any bottlenecks. Consider the other components of your line and the speed at which your coder can operate. Can your coder keep up?
How to choose a future-proofed laser coding solution
Choosing a future-proofed coding solution is essential for high-end coding applications, for example in the production of high value products or 24/7, high volume output, it's essential to consider how your investment will be future proofed, for example by recuperating costs thanks to reduced downtime through increased reliability with no ongoing consumable costs.
Does Cost Effective Dairy Coding Have An Effect On Production?
The dairy industry has been subject to a number of different trends affecting production, processing and packaging in recent years. The dairy packaging industry is under increasing pressures from consumers and others in the market to conform to many of these trends, something that could have an effect on other parts of the sector.
