Linx CSL60
Laser Coding System
Coding and marking faster in challenging applications
The Linx CSL60 laser coding system is designed for high-speed coding applications in demanding production environments.
Based on CO2 laser coding technology, the Linx CSL60 has a high powered 60 W laser tube and is ideal for beverage, food, personal care,
automotive, extrusion and carton packing applications. For customers who need to improve their coding and marking process, the CSL60
includes a number of unique features that ensure high quality product coding across the widest range of materials and line speeds.
Improved brand protection
Quality coding solution
Increased productivity
• High resolution, permanent coding, even
on hard to mark materials such as glass
and rubber
• Delivers exceptional reliability and
consistency of code, ease of use and
efficient operation
• Crisp, clear coding on glass with
VisiCode®, even at high line speeds
• Widest combinations of lens, marking
heads and tube options – enables the
Linx CSL60 to be configured to meet your
application, which means efficient use of
power and extends the life of the equipment
• Full system IP65 rating – for reliable coding
in washdown environments. Less downtime
as the Linx CSL60 can be left in situ in your
production equipment
• Largest marking field in the market – up to
a code height of 601 mm. For large area
coding applications such as food/yoghurt
• Clear coding on high speed PET lines –
with the 9.3 μm laser tube option
• Powerful processor allows coding at fast
line speeds with no compromise on code
quality. Codes up to 2100 characters
per second*.
• Easy to integrate into bottling machinery –
supply unit can be located up to 10m away
• No consumables – clean, and cost effective
• Air cooled – no ancillary air cooling or
factory air required (for IP54 variant).
• The detachable laser head with quick
disconnect cables makes integration into
production environments easier – even in
tight spaces – and reduces servicing time
• LinxVision® enabled touch screen – for quick
code creation and selection, fewer coding
errors, and less downtime between
product runs
• High power 60 W laser tube – for coding onto
hard to mark materials and on high speed lines.
Code up to 70,000* bottles per hour and meet
your production deadlines.
