March 27, 2012 - PRLog -- A quest to find the oldest surviving Linx continuous ink jet (CIJ) printer will form a central part of the jubilee celebrations. On Linx's 25th birthday, 6 July 2012, the owner of the oldest Linx CIJ printer in each of four global regions will be chosen to win a new Linx CIJ printer, fully installed, plus an ink and solvent pack to get them started.

What's more, once a month, from April to July, one registered prize draw entrant will win a Linx TJ225 thermal inkjet printer.

Paul Doody, Marketing Director, says: "This is a significant milestone for Linx and we're proud to have spent a quarter of a century coming up with many industry 'firsts'.

"We now look forward to sharing with new and existing customers even greater reliability, lower costs of ownership and enhanced ease of use. These key characteristics have helped us serve our customers so well over the last 25 years, and will remain our focus for the erata next 25 years and beyond."

Linx, based in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, began manufacturing and selling CIJ printers in 1987 with the 5200, 5100 and 5150 models. The company's two founders, Mike Keeling and Hillar Weinberg, introduced new technology from the very start, including a totally sealed, adjustment-free printhead, time of flight viscosity control, and one-button start and stop.

These features went on to be adopted by other manufacturers and remain key features of all leading CIJ printers today.  Later innovations included the first autoflushing printhead, the first multi-message memory, the first icon-driven interface and the first manufacturer to offer IP55 as standard.
