Software upgrade adds multiple benefits on TJ725.
Print Reprint
     

The Linx TJ725 thermal ink-jet case coder now includes a software upgrade that adds a host of new capabilities. It means users can print more than before with the same printer—the upgrade will be standard on all new models and can be added free of charge to existing machines.

The Linx TJ725’s new features include the following:

• Internal dynamic barcode generation capability for quicker customization

• Anti ink-bleed feature and new inks, allowing a wider range of substrates to be coded

• 600 dpi printing for better print contrast

• Rotated text fields

• Arabic language support
• Quicker code editing and creation


The Linx TJ725 already incorporates Simply Smart Technology® to offer a high-resolution, digital solution for coding onto outer cases, boxes, shelf-ready trays, and packaging.

Supplied in just a few pieces out of the box, the Linx TJ725 is simple to fit without needing a service engineer or special installation tools. No training is needed and users can be up and running within minutes.

The Linx TJ725 can cut waste and save money because it is ready to print straight away every time and with no hidden service costs, increasing production line efficiency.

Linx's innovative Active Cartridge Care System® saves money and cuts waste by slowing the nozzle drying process, making first prints more reliable every time. The nozzles are covered and protected when not in use and uncovered automatically when the first product is sensed, so the Linx TJ725 is ready to produce high-quality prints as soon as they're needed. It can also sense how much ink is left and forecast the number of prints remaining, so operators can plan to keep lines running without interruption.

The replaceable ink cartridge with integral printhead is key to the coder's efficiency, as there is no risk of expensive printhead replacement or repairs. Installing a new cartridge is a simple process that takes seconds. The machine then automatically detects the type of cartridge fitted, and adjusts for optimum printing performance.

The Linx TJ725 also allows easy, tool-free, repositioning of the printhead. So the printer can be set up quickly and easily in the correct printing position during product changeovers, or when moving the printer between lines, saving production time.


The built-in sensors automatically detect the speed of the product, trigger the Active Cartridge Care System and initiate printing, which means no separate encoder or sensors are needed.

The touchscreen interface offers ease of use and simple, intuitive configuration for easy message changeover. For operators, the color screen clearly shows the message selected as it will be printed, reducing the risk of coding errors.

The Linx TJ725 can print messages up to a height of 12.5-mm, with a range of fonts and print densities of up to 600 dpi, and line speeds of up to 1 meter/sec.
