The new Linx CSL10 and CSL30 scribing CO2 lasers offer the largest marking field in the industry, allowing wide web applications to be addressed with one laser instead of two. In addition, the coders can achieve among the fastest laser markings in the industry — up to 2,952ft/min (900m/min). Ideal for the requirements of high speed packing and bottling lines, both models can code crisp, permanent text or graphics on many different packaging materials including coated paper and card, plastic, glass, rubber, coated metal and anodized aluminum.


  • Largest marking area in the industry, up to 15.7in x 23.6in (400mm x 600mm), ideal for applications such as flexible sheets for lids
  • IP65 rating options allow either model to operate in harsh, wet and dusty environments such as frozen, dairy, beverage, chemicals and construction
  • Reduces energy usage by up to 50% with the unique VisiCode® function, also designed for producing unsurpassed high quality codes on glass and PET
  • More powerful processing board with the ability to relay the message from the control unit to the marking head more quickly, delivering higher speeds
  • Highly efficient operating system delivering a tube life of around 45,000 hours
  • Over 20,000 standard configurations for a range of marking heads and positions that can be tailored to precise coding application requirements
  • More versatility with an increased choice of conduit lengths (3, 5 and 10m), flexible conduit design, detachable marking head, connectors and conduit, and quick disconnect umbilical cable
  • Ease of set-up and reduction of user error due to an enhanced version of its LinxVision® operating system
