Bottle coding solution

Monday, 06 July, 2009 | Supplied by: Matthews Australasia Pty Ltd



The Linx 4900BC bottle coding solution has been specifically designed for wet and humid conditions. It uses inks that stick and it prints exactly where needed.

The robust continuous ink jet (CIJ) printer with ‘sticky ink’ and air-knife drying system are suitable for permanent coding 24/7 operation at the high speeds required on bottling lines.

The versatile, high-adherence beverage ink 1058 is suitable for coding on glass, PET and PLA. The ink penetrates condensation to provide good print quality and good permanence right up to the point of its removal in caustic bottle washers (if required).

The print-head and air-knife system ensure the print area is practically dry immediately before printing. This controlled process ensures that printing always occurs on the dried area for consistent code quality, even between production changeovers and daily line adjustments.

These benefits are matched by the durability and ease of use of the system.

The coder incorporates all of the benefits of the regular Linx 4900, offering 2-line printing of text and logos at production line speeds of up to 6.25 m/s.

The Linx 4900BC is full of features that make use cleaner and easier. With its curved stainless steel case and its IP55 washdown rating, the Linx 4900BC provides safe and clean operation in all production environments where cleanliness is important.

The 4900BC has a self-cleaning print-head and automatic power-down ability, ensuring mess-free and trouble-free starts and stops.

In addition to its cleanliness, coder operation is easy due to the simple, menu-driven interface with message preview for error-free code creation. It has a 50-message memory store and automatic date creation to minimise the need for editing.
