Why we won

The customer is very successful and has plans to develop the plant. He wanted a coder that was at the cutting edge of technology and one that would keep pace with his expansion plans.

The Linx TT5 is designed to optimize productivity with its unique clutchless bidirectional ribbon drive, meaning a minimal risk of ribbon breaks and no mechanical adjustments needed to maintain ribbon tension. Customers enjoy superb code quality as well as a significant increase in production line uptime and lower cost of ownership. The user interface allows users to preview messages before coding, reducing coding errors. It also has one of the longest standard ribbon lengths on the market (1000 metres) resulting in fewer ribbon changes.
