Carl Reid, Matthews product manager for ink jet products, says, “With its IP55-rated stainless steel cover, sealed print-head and printer-adjusted running parameters, the two-line Linx 4900 printer, which can print logos and graphics, is designed for minimal user intervention.
“This new Linx 4900 has been designed to be cleaner in operation, clearer in print quality and cleverer through use of advanced technologies, so needing minimal intervention by the operator. It has been engineered for reliability and also ensures users benefit from low cost of ownership.”
The printer’s stainless steel cover has no dirt traps, and liquids naturally slide off the surface. Because of the steel enclosure’s IP55 rating, it’s ideal for washdown environments such as food and dairy packaging, without the added cost of factory air.
Reid says, “Auto power-down is another valuable technological feature. Operators simply press a single button at the end of the shift; the print-head valve system and full auto-flush facility automatically clean the print-head before it powers down.
“This removes any inconvenience in waiting for the Linx 4900 to shut down,” explains Reid, “It also eliminates the risk of switching off the printer too soon. And the feature ensures the Linx 4900 is always ready for a trouble-free start up – even after extended shutdowns. It’s a ‘switch off and walk away’ button.
“An intelligent inkjet control system means the printer manages print-head temperature, time of flight and ink pressure, thus giving trouble-free viscosity control and consistent print quality.”
The printer case and print-head design mean no manual intervention. Running parameters are automatically adjusted and the printer provides clear on-screen diagnostics. The Linx 4900 can store up to 50 messages. The Linx 4900 can print logos and graphics, and it has a wide range of ready-to-use date, time, sequential number and shift-coding formats from which to choose.
Reid says, “The Linx 4900 is basically a printer you can install and forget.”
