Matthews Intelligent Identification will release Linx 6900, a new, high-speed continuous inkjet (CIJ), printer at Auspack.
According to Matthews, the Linx 6900, which is suited for a wide range of product coding needs, is a fully featured coder that can efficiently print up to five lines of text, graphics and bar codes at single-printed line speeds of up to 8.4m/s.
Its key features include an intuitive colour user interface, with WYSIWYG display and menu system, low-maintenance operation and an attractive curved appearance.
Superseding Linx’s successful 6800 model, the printer incorporates many new and enhanced features that are the result of ongoing consultation with customers as to their precise coding needs including maximum uptime, long-term reliability, low cost of ownership and good print quality at high speeds.
The Linx 6900 is designed to be easy for operators to use, durable to withstand harsh production environments, future-proofed with five-line coding and networking capability and it looks great.
The intuitive colour user interface incorporates a clear WYSIWYG display and navigable menu system for ease of message set-up and preview, thus minimising coding errors.
Weighing only 21kg, with no hard wiring and easy plug-in connections including optional parallel I/O and Ethernet, the portable, compact printer is easily transferable between lines and can be started at the touch of a button.
The attractive, curved enclosure doubles as a durable, protective shell with minimal dirt traps, making it ideal for environments where hygiene is paramount.
The printer is washdown rated [IP55], to ensure ease of cleaning; with an optional IP65 rating for dusty production environments requiring an extra level of protection.
Low maintenance and trouble-free start-ups are assured due to the Linx 6900’s full print-head autoflush on every shutdown.
Ink and solvent usage is easy and mess-free, with clear on-screen information to help avoid mistakes.
Additional features include a dynamic message store of 1000+ messages, preset and user-defined date, time and shift code formats and on-board logo creation.
