If you’re looking for new or upgraded coding and marking equipment for primary packaging but are confused by today’s technologies, F.J. Smith Sales Co. is here to help you!

We will assist you in identifying key factors to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution for your company. Moreover, we will provide insight into Linux 10, a newly introduced compact Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) printer, for the coding and marking industry.

As a leading packaging machinery supplier and distributor, we’ve been selling coding machines for as long as anyone in the business. Currently, our favorite coding machine on the market is the Linx 10 Portable CIJ Coder.

Here are the top five things you should look for when buying a coding machine, all of which are incorporated into the Linx 10.

1. Ease of programming
You will want to purchase a machine that is user-friendly in terms of installation and interface.

The new compact Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) printer, Linux 10, is capable of delivering quality two lines code. It requires minimal training and is simple and easy to set up.

2. Excellent portability
How versatile is the printer? Is it easy to install? Linx 10 is the lightest and the most compact CIJ printer in its class. Our customers love moving the Linx 10 coding machine from line-to-line very quickly given the size and weight of the machine.

3. Flexible
You want a machine that’s going to stand up to rigorous use! The Linux 10 has the ability to operate the product on a fully automatic line, or you can easily change it over to a semi-automatic line. We know of no other coding machine that gives this type of flexibility!

4. MEK-free inks
MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone, also known as Butanone) is an industrial solvent used in most inks and additives. It is known to cause significant adverse effects on human health and the environment.

Linux 10 is a non-MEK dye-based ink only. You need only one ink type for Linx 10 to mark all materials! It delivers good quality code without giving up efficiency or durability.

5. Cost-effective
You will need to choose a coding system that is most efficient in terms of ink, solvent, and toner, reducing the costs of ownership.

The Linx 10 coder is priced exceptionally well, making it a great bang for the buck. At F.J. Smith Sales Co., we only sell our customers what we believe to be the best coding machines on the market!
