The new Linx CJ400 continuous ink jet printer (CIJ) won a prestigious industry award last month at the PPMA (Processing & Packaging Machinery Association) Group Industry Awards in Birmingham, UK.
Described by PPMA judges as ‘outstanding’, the Linx CJ400 won the ‘Most Innovative Processing or Packaging Machine’ award.
Linx Printing Technologies, a world-leading manufacturer of coding and marking solutions for date and batch coding of products and packaging, developed the CJ400 CIJ printer following major global research into end user needs.
The PPMA award is presented to the machinery manufacturer or company, which has installed an application that has dramatically improved productivity for the customer. Judges selected the Linx CJ400 for ‘demonstrating that thorough investigation of every component can bring outstanding results’.
The CJ400 was released in the Australian market recently by leading intelligent identification company, Matthews Australasia. According to Stephen Mummery, Matthews’ national sales and marketing manager, the compact coders have received strong response in the market, particularly from businesses needing flexible production lines, as well as smaller and remote FMCG and industrial users.
Enumerating its advantages, Stephen says that the CJ400 uses up to 40% less ink and 33% less solvent in addition to offering easy portability and quick, true DIY serviceability. He adds that alpha-numeric and symbol coding from 2mm to 20mm allows manufacturers to use the machine for both product and carton printing, thus reducing costs.
