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.
The coder can also 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 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.
Matt Eastham, laser business manager, Linx Printing Technologies, said the models widen the appeal of the technology to companies who might previously have considered it too complex.
“The Linx CSL10 and CSL30 combine proven Linx reliability with flexibility and ease of use, all of which simplify the process of owning and operating a laser coder. And with our many years’ experience of laser technology and a large global installed base, we can help companies find the ideal solution tailored to their individual needs.”
