July 26, 2012
FoxJet (www.foxjet.com) is pleased to announce the newest addition to the FoxJet family of products, the Linx 7900 Continuous Inkjet coder. The Linx 7900 offers a wealth of features at no extra cost, including state of the art Linx Insight® software, the new ink system technology enables the Linx 7900 printer to run for up to 9,000 hours or 18 months between services and the Linx 7900 also comes with a warranty of up to 18 months at no extra cost.
The Linx Insight software means that with a few simple keystrokes on a remote computer connected to the internet, an operator can start, pause or stop the Linx 7900, change messages from pre-stored selections and download messages from the PC to the printer. Users can also lock the printer keyboard to prevent changes being made on the line – helping further reduce coding errors. For people on the move there is the ability to check the current status of the printer from their smartphone; for example view the current print message, print count, ink and solvent status, and time to next service. This ability to monitor the printer remotely via a smartphone is unique to the Linx 7900 [JL1] and means busy operators can keep their line moving wherever they are. All users can manage multiple printers from one easily accessible and simple to use web interface. Standard day to day printer operations can be performed without visiting each printer individually.
Dynamically adjusted service intervals ensure customers only pay for vital maintenance. The Linx 7900 contains Linx’s successful FullFlush® automatic printhead cleaning system, mistake-proof refills with the SureFill® system and error-free code changes with QuickSwitch® software. Routine maintenance is minimal and there are no expensive ink system assemblies to replace at every service.
The Linx 7900 is certain to make a major impact with operators who value ease of use, low running costs and reliability on a machine rich with features and technical innovation.
