SCOTTISH bacon supplier Quality Foods of Aberdeen has installed a Linx IJ355 high definition case coder after being impressed with the machine’s reliability and performance. Low cost of ownership and clear printing were among the other factors that led the company to choose the latest machine from coding and marking specialist Linx Printing Technologies. The Linx IJ355’s robust construction is ideal for Quality Foods, where packs of bacon are packed by hand into brown cardboard boxes, which then go via conveyor past the printer. Information including the product name, pack size, product code and best before date is coded onto one side of each box, with prints measuring 205x40mm and 183x45mm. The machine codes 2.8 boxes/min with the line operating 50 hours per week, all year round.
