FoxJet Announces the Release of the Linx 8900 Small Character Inkjet Coder

ST. LOUIS, (Sept. 1, 2015) – FoxJet is pleased to announce the launch of the Linx 8900, an advanced CIJ (continuous ink jet) printer that provides the highest levels of ease of use for operators and helps to maximize efficiencies during production, delivering valuable cost and time savings.

Capable of printing variable codes, barcodes and QR codes, the Linx 8900 incorporates a wealth of new features that speed up day-to-day operation and maintenance, combined with the renowned Linx reliability that ensures continual performance and minimal downtime. In addition, the printer offers even greater versatility thanks to the introduction of a range of special reporting functions, which enable companies to identify ways to improve productivity.

The Linx 8900’s one-touch, error-free ink refill system makes replacing fluids easier than ever with a one handed operation. The new design provides superior equipment protection by ensuring no printer parts are exposed during refills. Operators can enjoy long runs between fluid refills with increased solvent capacity and an 8-hour low to empty warning indicator.

The new printer’s ease of use extends to its large high resolution touch screen and error-free user interface. Individual operator passwords give users access to certain functions as required and customizable on-screen message editing prompts ensure accurate inputting. Designed for fast and easy set up in different coding locations, the printer can store multiple line settings and features industry-leading autoflush technology allowing it to start up quickly and cleanly every time.

Minimizing production downtime is made easier with the incorporation of a self-service module allowing filters and ink to be changed in one quick step with on-screen help from the Self-Service Wizard guiding operators through the process. The self-service feature provides maintenance managers the flexibility to schedule engineer-free maintenance on the Linx 8900 at times that best fit the production schedule.

These ease of use features combine with special reporting functions that provide at-a-glance real-time data, which also includes downtime information and batch counts that can be easily transferred to a USB for the compilation of reports. The Linx 8900 arms plant managers with the information they need to identify patterns and reasons for line stoppages, allowing them to implement solutions to improve efficiency and productivity.
