MPF was particularly impressed with the Linx 7300’s ability to change codes quickly between different products and customers. “Templates can be saved to the system so that job selection can be achieved within seconds, and new details can be added via integral USB port for guaranteed accuracy,” explains Ian Wright
Another feature that attracted MPF is the design of the coder’s apertures for ink and solvent bottles, which are different shapes to prevent the risk of incorrect loading – a simple feature standard to Linx printers but not available on MPF’s previous choice
“Refilling fluids can be achieved in a matter of seconds,” Ian Wright confirms. “With different aperture sizes for ink and solvent bottles, there is minimal risk of operators from making costly mistakes.”
With the majority of MPF’s operation done manually, speed of coding is not an issue, with the Linx 7300 easily able to accommodate the average 20-25 packs per minute. Nonetheless, as the majority of MPF’s coding is three lines, the company was delighted that this comes as standard, with optional 4 and 5-line printing available should this become necessary in the future.
Since its installation, the machine has performed admirably for MPF, and Ian Wright is enthused by the attitude of Linx. “We wanted somebody who would be a great partner with the right attitude, and Linx is exactly that. They’ve done exactly what they promised, and the result is a convenient, intuitive and high-quality coding solution for all of our needs.”
