MATTHEWS Intelligent Identification’s new Linx thermal transfer overprinter range, featuring the TT5 and TT10, is ideal for coding onto flexible film packaging, labels or gloss card - efficiently, easily, and with low ownership costs.
These new printers were launched by Matthews at Auspack and are suitable for the snack food, confectionery and pharmaceutical sectors.
"They deliver the ultimate combination of productivity-enhancing benefits while increasing manufacturer's profits: they're easy to use, exceptionally flexible, offer increased production line uptime and lower ownership costs," said Matthews' Damian Marcantonio.
Marcantonio says the TT5 is particularly suitable for printing best-before dates and batch codes, while the Linx TT10 is perfect for printing larger messages, such as ingredients, logos and promotional information.
"Using motors rather than clutches to control ribbon tension, minimises the risk of ribbon breaks; while the ribbon-cassette design provides a simple path, ensuring changing ribbons is quick and simple,” said Mr Marcantonio. “Less maintenance and faster ribbon changeover means increased uptime."
The Linx TTs, which can switch easily between intermittent and continuous printing modes, feature security from three levels of password protection.
Colour touch-screens and an intuitive graphic user interface (allowing message preview before coding) means ease of use. An extensive on-board diagnostics package optimises productivity.
