Self-cleaning economy saves Freshpack


After only a week’s trial, frozen food manufacturer Freshpack has purchased a new coding and marking solution from Linx Printing Technologies that delivers significant cost savings and reliable, high-quality printing of barcodes onto outer case packaging.

The Linx IJ350 high-definition Large Character Marking (LCM) printer benefits from a unique self-cleaning method that ensures low cost of ownership, minimal downtime and superior print quality. Freshpack anticipates that the annual cost of printing codes using the Linx IJ350 will be one-sixth of the cost of its existing labelling operation, with payback on investment achieved within two years. The self-cleaning method is known as ‘micro-purge,’ which uses a small film of ink on the printhead to collect dirt and debris prior to printing. This is blasted with air to clean the ink from the printing plate; the ink is collected and recirculated, passing through a high performance filter to maintain clean ink in the system. This innovative ink recirculation system reduces the overall cost of ownership and eliminates the need to dispose of waste ink, because every drop of ink is used.

 

Linx installed a trial IJ350 on one of the production lines and, within one week, Freshpack had placed an order to buy the printer.

The Linx IJ350 installed at Freshpack is running five days a week on a production line that fills around 360,000 cartons per year with potato-topped ready meals such as cottage pies. Each carton is printed with the product name, brand logo and an ITF barcode.
