Linx does not manufacture inks or solvents for any other supplier. Our fluids are tested extensively during their development, and are manufactured according to strict specifications, resulting in a high level of quality assurance. There is ample evidence that the use of non-Linx inks or solvents in Linx printers can affect printer reliability and lead to costly repairs and production line downtime.
