Europe: Linx introduces thermal inkjet case coder with upgraded software

The Linx TJ725 thermal inkjet case coder is now better than ever thanks to software upgrade which adds a host of new capabilities, says Linx.

It means users can print more than before with the same printer – the upgrade will be standard on all new models and can be added free of charge to existing machines.

The Linx TJ725 has:

– An Internal dynamic barcode generation capability for quicker customization,

– Anti ink-bleed feature and new inks, allowing a wider range of substrates to be coded,

– 600dpi printing for better print contrast,

– Rotated text fields,

– Arabic language support, and

– Quick code editing and creation.

Ink management

The Linx TJ725 incorporates Simply Smart Technology to offer a high resolution, digital solution for coding onto outer cases, boxes, shelf ready trays and packaging.

Supplied in a few pieces out of the box, the unit assembles without a service engineer or specialist installation tools.

The Linx TJ725 can cut waste and save money because it is ready to print straight away every time and with no hidden service costs, increasing production line efficiency.

Linx’s innovative Active Cartridge Care System saves money and cuts waste by slowing the nozzle drying process, making first prints more reliable every time.

The nozzles are covered and protected when not in use and uncovered automatically when the first product is sensed, so the unit can produce high quality prints as soon as they are needed.

It can also sense how much ink is left and forecast the number of prints remaining, so operators can plan to keep lines running without interruption.

The replaceable ink cartridge with integral printhead is key to the coder’s efficiency, as there is no risk of expensive printhead replacement or repairs.

Taking a few seconds to install a new cartridge, the machine then automatically detects the type of cartridge fitted, and adjusts for optimum printing performance.

It also allows easy, tool-free, repositioning of the printhead, so the printer can be set up quickly and easily in the correct printing position during product changeovers, or when moving the printer between lines – saving production time.

Print efficiency

The built-in sensors automatically detect the speed of the product, trigger the Active Cartridge Care System and initiate printing, without a separate encoder or sensors.

The touch screen interface offers ease of use and simple, intuitive configuration for easy message changeover.

For operators, the color screen shows the message selected as it will be printed, reducing the risk of coding errors.

The Linx TJ725 can print messages up to a height of 12.5mm, with a range of fonts and print densities of up to 600dpi, and line speeds of up to 1m/s.
