Better Contrast, Adhesion, Performance
The Linx contrast printer range provides the capability to utilise the one coder for printing your critical business information onto a variety of dark and light substrates, potentially without having to purchase numerous machines and ink colour variants. The 8910c and 8920c models have different benefits depending on environment, operational efficiency and product substrate requirements. From pipe extrusion, wire and cable to glass and plastic parts, a range of performance contrasting colours is available to enhance visibility and brand identity.
Designed to reduce machine intervention from start-up, to filling to maintenance, the 8910c and 8920c offer quick, clean startups every time, less downtime cleaning printheads through its robust, completely sealed printhead, auto flush feature ensure continual reliable operation. With the seasonal shutdown mode the system is ready to print first time, even after extended shutdown, with no need for expensive printer flushing.
Less interventions filling solvent achieved with a larger capacity, cartridges and the new, self-service module (situation depending), offers elongated time between services.
New contrast ink formulations improve upon previous dry times, offer a better hue delivering a more prominent contrasting mark, expanded fast dry capabilities (colour depending) onto new product surfaces (from plastics to glass) and new yellow has improved ink shelf life lasting longer than ever before.
Advanced System Monitoring – internal monitoring helps to avoid unscheduled stoppages between service module changes - reliable coding for longer.
Not only is the solvent capacity larger, its simple, one-touch, RFID fluid cartridge refills during printing – no mess, no tools, no mistakes.
Finally, inbuilt on-screen wizard, guides operators through the service module change process – for a quick, engineer-free service. Simply our best contrast printer yet.
