Thermal ink jet printers (TIJ) Linx are maintenance free with no downtime and no training costs. They provide a high-resolution digital alternative to roller coders, hand placed labels and continuous ink jet systems. The wide range of inks available make them particularly suitable for coding onto a range of applications and substrates.
The new Linx TJ50 is the perfect solution for fast-moving, fast production lines. Delivering continuous, high-quality codes, machine readable DataMatrix and 1D barcodes using specialist pigmented, water and solvent based inks, this versatile coder requires no maintenance and no wear parts, keeping your production lines moving.
Designed for demanding applications, the Linx TJ50 is a high-performance and versatile thermal ink jet solution that prints text, graphics and machine-readable codes onto a wide range of packaging materials, including LDPE bottles, aluminium cans, film and coated card. Intuitive software makes it easy to create complex new messages or simply use one of the message templates.
