Linx’s first CIJ inkjet printer was the 5000 created in 1987, followed by the 5100, 5150 and 5200 inkjet printers.

These are all inkjet printers with sealed printheads, one key start stop and four line inkjet printing performance.

In 1988, 4000 was launched. In 1991, 6000 was launched.

The latter keeps Linx’s “pioneering” record by virtue of a complete set of automatic intermediate washing function of the nozzle and WYSIWYG display.

The upgraded versions of the two models were put on the market in the 1990s, including the first 6200 inkjet with automatic power-off function, and the 4800 that achieved another industrial “first” because it met the IP55 protection standard.
