Linx Printing Technologies has introduced two fibre lasers to its portfolio for materials applicable in both static and moving production lines.

The new Linx FSL20 and Linx FSL50 fiber lasers offer energy-efficient coding with a fine spot size that are said to leave behind permanent codes for a wide range of materials, including metals, plastics, paper and glass.

These lasers are ideal for producing small discreet codes for traceability or anti-counterfeiting, bigger codes for high-profile branding or promotions, and large amounts of information in a small area.

"The Linx FSL20 and FSL50 are class-leading variants and an important addition to our laser coder offering."

Linx's fibre lasers with several fonts, codes and graphics over multiple lines and unlimited areas are suitable for applications in aerospace, automotive, electronics, pharmaceutical, medical devices and tooling, as well as FMCG packaging sectors.

The four different lenses available will allow customisation of coders based on the product requirements for either static or moving environments.

Linx Printing Technologies laser product manager Matt Eastham said: "With our new fibre lasers, we have developed a coder that meets our customers' most important criteria, easy integration, reliable operation and the flexibility to deliver high-quality codes of any description across the widest range of substrates.

"The Linx FSL20 and FSL50 are class-leading variants and an important addition to our laser coder offering, giving our customers the reassurance of a coding solution that is exactly right for their operation."

The Linx fibre lasers with IP54 rated marking head has a laser source lasting more than 100,000h. Its air-cooling claims to eliminate leaks or clogging that are commonly associated with a water-cooled system.
