New accessories are also available for use with the printers, cover tube seal, splash cover, and specialty air knife kit, each designed to help food manufacturers with humid environments meet production requirements.

Many food producers face additional challenges in complying with coding requirements when their production environment has high humidity or when condensation is present and/or builds up on cold fill packaging. The presence of moisture is problematic for coding quality and can negatively impact coding equipment performance.

Michelle Chamberlain, Diagraph Product Manager, said, “The Linx 89xx Series printers, with their stainless-steel construction and IP55/IP65 protection ratings, are designed to operate reliably in tough industrial environments. When application conditions go beyond normal humidity or when condensation builds up, the engineered Linx 89xx offered by Diagraph keeps production on target. The new pigmented ink and accessories are designed to make it easier for our customers to meet their production requirements.”

The  Linx 1088 Yellow Bottling Pigmented ink, from coding and marking solutions manufacturer Diagraph, provides contrast on dark substrates and is designed for adherence onto wet, slick substrates. The ink can be removed with a light caustic wash for returnable glass bottle applications. Other Linx inks include the Linx black wet process or bottling inks which are used when it is critical for marks to remain stable through tough freeze/thaw, cold room or cold fill coding applications.

PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will reunite the packaging and processing community, offering new products, technologies and solutions, while implementing up-to-date protocols for a safe and successful in-person event. Attendee registration is now open.

  • Is training production line workers creating a challenge? No problem!  Posted 7 years ago
    Companies rely on engineers or technicians to keep production lines up and running. These job functions are essential to hitting production targets, so it is key that their skill level on equipment is proficient. When making the decision to replace this equipment, the amount of time and money that will have to be invested in training your labor is a major deciding factor.
  • Don’t let fast drying ink slow down your CIJ coding process Posted last year
    Continuous inkjet printers (CIJ) use super-fast drying solvent-based inks. One of the technology challenges presented by these inks is that they aren’t too particular wherethey dry. With CIJ technology, the formation of drops from an inkjet stream creates a mist (or satellite drops) which builds up a layer of ink over time on the components inside the CIJ print head, causing print failure. Routine cleaning of ink with solvent from the components in a print head is required to maintain best print quality and uptime.
  • How do I get labels to stick in hot and humid environments? Posted 4 years ago
    Something to be aware of when considering using labeling for product identification in a hot or humid environment is that labels are sensitive to temperature, making facility environment temperature a determining factor in choosing what label material to use on a product.
