Linx Printing Technologies has just launched two new laser coders that open up the benefits of the technology to more companies and applications. The new Linx CSL range offer even faster printing speeds and greater versatility, making the coders ideal for a wider variety of products, along with quicker and easier installation and set-up that help to make laser coding simpler and more accessible.
The Linx CSL10 (10 watt) and CSL30 (30 watt) laser coders feature a new, more powerful processing board that is able to relay the message from the control unit to the marking head more quickly, delivering higher speeds, ideal for high speed variable coding applications such as unique QR codes for product traceability. Equally important, the coder can handle complex messages and graphics without any loss of quality, ideal for the requirements of high speed packing and bottling lines. Both models apply crisp codes onto many different packaging materials including coated paper and card, plastic, glass, rubber, coated metal and anodised aluminium.
A new marking head has been introduced for wide web applications, enabling the coders to code across multiple lines using just a single laser where previously two machines would have been required. An area of up to 440mm x 600mm can be coded – ideal for applications such as flexible sheet for lids.
Both models can be specified in an IP65 version, allowing the coder to operate in harsh, wet and dusty environments such as frozen, dairy, beverage, chemicals and construction.
Both the Linx CSL10 and Linx CSL30 retain the proven features of Linx laser technology including a highly efficient operating system that delivers one of the longest tube lives on the market – around 45,000 hours – and its unique VisiCode® function for producing unsurpassed high quality codes on glass and PET while reducing energy usage by up to 50%. An enhanced version of its LinxVision® operating system allows for fast and simple set-up that minimises errors.
