French confectionery manufacturer Gida Confectionery has boosted production using a Linx 8900 Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) printer.
The company is using the Linx 8900 to print up to three lines, including ‘Use before’ dates, on all its confectionery products.
The contactless marking of CIJ is a benefit for Gida, allowing the company to print easily onto a variety of differently shaped metal and plastic boxes and cartons – and in whichever direction is most convenient.
In addition, the Linx 8900’s high-resolution, colour touchscreen provides Gida with an accessible user interface.
Laurent Deybach, managing director of Gida, said: “We’re very happy with our Linx 8900. It fits easily onto our production lines, our operators can use it regardless of their level of training, it is economical to run, and above all it is extremely reliable – we haven’t had any problems at all.”
