The food industry presents some of the most demanding coding and marking challenges for food companies. During the printing process, which has to be efficient and reliable, codes on products do not only have to withstand extreme variations in temperatures. Color fastness, cleanliness and hygiene are also playing an important role when printing them. This is why the choice of the right coding system for labelling food products is essential.

Panacea: Inkjet Printer for Labelling Food Products
Industrial inkjet printers, which enable to print variable information such as production and expiry dates or batch and serial numbers on surfaces like plastic, glass, tin and wood, can help tackling this situation.Linx Printing Technologies has launched a portable and compact inkjet printer called Linx 10. This printer has also potential for businesses whose growth is hampered by the use of flexible, non-digital coding methods such as print-and-apply labelling, hand-applied labels, or stamping.

Labelling Food Products With a Portable and Compact Inkjet Printer
The Linx 10 weighs around 11 kilogram, features a carry handle and a printhead dock to support portability. Due to its compact dimensions, this inkjet printer is well suited for packaging lines with space constraints. This feature allows companies to quickly move and set up the inkjet printer where it is required. Thereby it guarantees full flexibility and an easy way to use.
Linx Printing Technologies’ new inkjet is an example that new technologies can lead to more efficiency and flexibility within the production process.
