Packaging printing - best before dates and batch codes.

The Linx TT5 has a standard ribbon width (up to 55mm) making it particularly suitable for printing best before dates and batch codes. Bi-directional motors drive both ribbon unwind and re-wind reels, creating more prints per ribbon and leaving only a 0.5mm gap between messages. Delivering low cost of ownership through an efficient use of consumables, and no overprinting.
