Contract packer Universal Flexible Packaging says the reliability and simplicity of the Linx CJ400 continuous ink jet printer is helping it meet the increasingly exacting demands of its customers.

After trialling it against a competitor machine, the company bought six Linx CJ400s to replace various thermal transfer printers, label printers and drop on demand printers.

The award-winning printers are now coding on to an array of containers at the family-run company’s Leicester factory.

Universal Flexible Packaging produces high-end bag-in-box confectionery products, which then go into a shipping carton. The Linx CJ400s print on to filled preformed pouches and code on to inner and outer boxes on a semi-automatic line and on to secondary packaging, where the coder is placed on the out-feed of a case taper.

Using Linx Black versatile mixed-base ink T583, the Linx CJ400 copes easily with coding onto the varnished card of high-value packs, where ink adhesion can be an issue. The machine’s clean operation is also important in a hygienic environment.

Launched in 2011, the Linx CJ400 was the winner of the Most Innovative Processing or Packaging Machine category at the PPMA (Processing & Packaging Machinery Association) Group Industry Awards 2012.
