Linx adds new TT printers for printing on flexible packaging

Linx Printing Technologies has launched a new series of Thermal Transfer (TT) overprinters, that is said to deliver a low total cost of ownership and increase operators’ production line output with a “easy to use” coding and marking solution.

The TT series printers can be deployed for printing best before dates, batch codes, barcodes, ingredients, logos and other product information onto flexible packaging across a wide range of industrial applications. The advanced motor drive enables printer operation without compressed air, thus reducing the cost of ownership while eliminating the need to adjust air pressures to maintain consistent print quality.

A lightweight, simple, push button cassette design allows for quick ribbon changes to minimise production line intervention, thereby increasing uptime and throughput. Linx also continues to deliver responsive, intuitive graphic user interfaces on all its products.

Equipped with print speeds up to 1,000mm/s at widths up to 107mm and ribbons up to 1,200mm, the new wider range of printers provides improved flexibility and increased production line throughput.

Craig Briggs, global business unit manager at Linx Printing Technologies, said: “The new range meets the growing demand from customers for solutions that deliver consistent, high quality codes within a low total cost of ownership. The new Linx TT printers increase production output through minimising the time spent changing ribbons, and by increasing the number of prints per minute possible in comparison to other TT printers.”
