Linx Printing Technologies has launched a radically new design of continuous ink jet (CIJ) printer developed to suit production line needs. The new Linx CJ400 promises unique portability, fastest set-up and the most simple to use printer.
A key innovation of the Linx CJ400 is its Easi-Change® Service Module, which can be changed in minutes using on-screen prompts. This means scheduled maintenance is easily completed without the need for a trained technician or costly service calls – a major advantage for smaller customers or those in remote regions. On-screen trouble shooting can solve the majority of operating issues without the need to consult manuals or engineers.
The Easi-Change® Service Module is designed so that all relevant serviceable parts are housed in an easily removable box, with no wires or pipes to disconnect and reconnect, and no need to expose other critical printer components during servicing.
Low maintenance is further enhanced by extended printhead cleaning intervals, typically three months. Thanks to the Linx CJ400’s unique autoflush processes, there is also no need for printer or conduit flushing for shutdowns of up to four weeks, which means no wasted fluids and enables trouble-free startups after extended shutdown periods.
Other cost savings come from the 62 micron printhead nozzle which saves up to 40 per cent ink usage compared to other CIJ printers. Solvent consumption is also reduced by up to 33 per cent.
With the cleanest, most economical printhead, the Linx CJ400 delivers increased production uptime.
The Linx CJ400 weighs only 13.5kg complete with fluids, making it the lightest CIJ printer on the market. It is ergonomically designed to be well within health and safety limits for single-person pick-up. The ability to quickly move between lines is enhanced by the capability to store settings for up to four production lines and 1000 typical messages, which can be selected in seconds.
One-step set-up is assured thanks to an easy to use colour touch screen, whose simple prompts enable users to start coding straight away. The same system offers step-by-step message creation and editing without requiring any complicated manuals or training. Mistake proof refills with SureFill® fluid identification prevents expensive damage caused by the use of incorrect inks and solvents.
