At Linx we understand that coding and marking in the extrusion industry is highly challenging. There’s no easy way to stop the production line if there is a technical difficulty without huge consequence for costly waste. Add to this the harsh operating environments with possible heat and dust, and the task of minimising downtime is even more pressing.
We appreciate you need a robust, reliable coder particularly suited to these challenges. Linx has proven experience gained over 35 years in delivering consistent coding through the development of its tough printers. You can be confident that if you use a Laser coder with its permanent marking capability, or Continuous Inkjet, together with its inks giving excellent adhesion, you will meet the demands of the high-output extrusion industry.
How Linx can help
Linx provides the complete printing solution.
We ensure our Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) (link to general CIJ page, but could be linked to specific product after launch) coders are robust enough for the task at hand: with IP ratings up to IP65, our coders can operate in high temperatures and dusty environments. Linx printers deliver excellent print quality and the wide range of inks provide exceptional adhesion, even at fast production speeds.
We’re up to the task
Linx printers can be mounted and moved to suit your production line requirements, delivering great codes on a wide range of extruded products:
- Cable and wire
- PVC pipes
- Double glazing window frames
- Moulded parts
- Industrial pipes and cables
- Aluminium profiles
- Metal elements
“The Linx coders give us good quality prints and have the speed and flexibility to deal with our different coding requirements.”
The Pre-Wired Conduit Company’s director Graham Davies
Laser coding options
Depending on your choice of substrate, our laser technology could provide an alternative option for coding and marking. The codes produced by the laser can be in a variety of sizes and do not suffer degradation through storage of the product. And as no ink is involved, drying time is not an issue and the codes remain smudge-free.
Keeping you on the move
Linx’s efficient coders are easy to install and have the flexibility to be moved and mounted onto different production lines, so you can plan your schedule for maximum output.
The range of CIJ coders come with large, intuitive user interfaces and colour touch screen functionality. They are easy to set up, keeping human errors to a minimum and your re-work costs down.
“At Linx we know flexibility is important, that is why our printers can be moved and positioned onto different lines with ease.”
Angelique Sachlos, Product Manager for CIJ
We’ve got you covered
Linx’s PrinterNet remote monitoring gives you a 360 degree view of the status of your lines and throughput rates:
- Delivering notifications and alerts to prevent unnecessary stoppages or shutdowns and the resulting costly waste
- Providing diagnostics and swift resolution, usually without the need for an engineer to visit, keeping your production lines running smoothly
- Keeping track of KPIs in real time so that the plans and schedules can be adjusted accordingly. The flexibility of the printers means you can move them to different lines as needed.
