Dairy Coding 

A rise in health-conscious yet time-poor consumers are influencing current trends in the dairy industry, as such batch printing of dairy products needs to be flexible to cope with the expanding range of product packaging types. In addition, reliable operation in wet production environments is key, especially on fast-moving lines producing products with a short shelf life, where time to market is short and profit margins can be low.

Whether coding onto flexible film, cartons, plastic and glass containers or bottles, Linx printers are designed to be reliable, robust and to print accurate, durable codes on a wide range of packaging materials.  This makes sure that you meet coding regulations, minimize cost, and reduce waste. 

Maintain Uptime and Control Costs

Reliable operation in wet or damp dairy production environments is critical, especially on fast-moving production lines. Maintaining uptime is essential for products with a short shelf life, where time to market is restricted and cost control is paramount. 

Linx coding and marking solutions enable you to meet coding regulations, reduce waste, maximize your production throughput and meet deadlines.
