US-based Linx has delivered two Linx 7900 continuous ink jet (CIJ) printers to Israeli dairy company Tnuva Eilon Tavor.

More than 100 Linx machines are in operation at Tnuva sites across the country.

The low-cost printers are said be capable of printing 40,000 yoghurt pots every hour.

"We have enjoyed a successful partnership with IPE and Linx for 14 years."

The solutions work with an Erca Form Fill Seal machine to print codes and 'best before' dates onto printed paper lids.

Advanced QuickSwitch software enables the solution to offer fast, time-saving changeovers between products.

The printer also offers automatic print format selection, and can run for up to 9,000h between services.

Maintenance for the printer is minimal due to its FullFlush automatic printhead cleaning system, Linx claimed.

Unlike other printers, Linx 7900 does not require an expensive ink system assembly replacement or tank change at every service.

Tnuva spokesperson said: “We have enjoyed a successful partnership with IPE and Linx for 14 years.

“The latest 7900 continues the excellent service we have received during this time, with proven reliability and consistent performance, which results in fewer unplanned line stoppages.”
