Linx SL1

10 W Compact Laser Coder

The Linx SL1 is a compact, cost effective coder designed to fit easily into production environments where space is constrained. An ultra-fast mirror system enables faster coding than other lasers in its class, while using much less laser energy but delivering 20% more power. No routine servicing or consumables mean the lifetime costs of the Linx SL1 laser are favourable compared to other types of printer, with no variable costs.

Key benefits

  • Affordable laser coding – no consumables or routine servicing
  • Designed to deliver enhanced reliability
  • Longer operating lifetime than equivalent lasers
  • Mix text, logos and machine-readable codes in a single message
  • Wide range of fonts to compliment packaging design and branding
  • Easy installation into tight production lines
  • Supports 2D code standards including QR and dot matrix codes
  • Wider range of marking fields than equivalent laser coders
