The Top Choice for Date, Lot and Batch Coding
Specify Alternate Text

Diagraph’s customers have spoken and they prefer the Linx 8900 continuous inkjet printer for their date, lot and batch doing needs! Customer feedback cited several reasons that the Linx 8900 model is their top choice including:

  1. 1) The print head runs cleaner for longer
    On average, CIJ users should plan to clean print heads thoroughly every one to two weeks. In worst case scenarios, some CIJ print heads require cleanings multiple times a week just to keep print quality legible and to prevent faults. So what’s the standout feature allowing the Linx 8900 print heads to run as long as 12 weeks before they require intervention? It’s simple: The print head design. Print heads stay print-ready for longer periods of time due to the fully sealed and potted design combined with the unique auto-flush system – giving Linx 8900 print heads the best cleaning intervals in the industry. 


  1. 2) Easy user interface -- for any skill level
    A challenge faced by Diagraph’s customers is the ability to keep line operators fully trained on all equipment. With very little time for training and transfer of knowledge as their skilled workers come and go, the icon-driven user interface with prompted fields is a highly valued feature in making the Linx 8900 printers a simple to navigate printer for lower skilled operators. In addition, operators appreciate the ability to customize the home screen of the printer to have the most-used functions right at their fingertips. It’s also not a problem to lock down system features that can only be accessible to a supervisor or manager. Bottom line: This easy-to-use interface saves money by minimizing user error, meaning less product waste and reducing the need for product re-runs. 


  1. 3) One touch fluid refills
    No mess, no tools, no mistakes. That is exactly why customers love the ease of a push-to-open door to access the ink compartment of the Linx 8900 Series. RFID-tag enabled ink and solvent cartridges prevent the wrong fluids from being inserted into the printer. Not to mention – the cartridges can be changed in a matter of seconds while your printer is running.

  • 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.
