Unique Solution

Lan Cables are printed at varying intervals, from simple number codes just a few centimeters apart to greater distances with long alphanumeric messages. However, the company found increasing printer downtime and reliability issues were impeding output and end-product quality. Coder breakdowns sometimes affected the product, and rework was not always possible, leading to costly waste. Tatung needed to reduce downtime, cut product wastage due to coding errors, and eliminate rework. The printing needed to be clear, using white ink onto Lan Cables in a variety of diameters, on fast production lines.  After comparing equipment and technology from different suppliers, Tatung chose the Linx 7900 for its excellent print quality, ability to keep up with line speeds easily, flexibility to print on the full cable diameter range size and ease of use.
