Robust Laser Coder That’s Perfect for Printing Complex Codes, 1D, 2D and Logos


LINX SL3 is a simple and robust laser coder that meets your coding requirements at an affordable price. It is generally used to code text, barcodes, logos, 2D codes, graphics, etc on a range of product packaging items such as glass, plastic, metal, cardboard, etc. This laser coder is made of top-grade materials and can help in increasing production time and reducing running costs.

Simple to install and easy to maintain, the Linx SL3 provides an ideal marking solution for a wide range of products. With the Linx SL3 laser coder, there is no need for a separate product detector and encoder. It comes with 3 laser enclosure mounting sides and is extremely easy to install.



  • Materials: The majority of materials can be effectively marked with this laser coder, including glass, metal, plastic and paper/card.
  • Warranty: With its two-year laser tube warranty, the coder ensures optimised production output and reliability, whilst reducing the total cost of ownership.
  • Installation: Very simple to install. The space required to house the coder, together with the installation time needed, is minimised, meaning less upheaval for already pressed production schedules.
  • Software: Using the latest LinxVision® Software the SL3 laser coder provides an easy access operator toolbar with a range of fonts, options and operating languages.
  • Target Industries: The SL3 laser coder operates in a wide range of production environments but its abilities are especially suited to beverage, packaging materials, home and personal care, and OEM installations.
