Matthews Marking Systems to Demonstrate Marking and Coding Solutions at WestPack 2019
Matthews Marking Systems will be exhibiting at WestPack 2019 in Anaheim, CA February 5-7 in booth 5505
Pittsburgh, PA (January 8, 2018) – Matthews Marking Systems, a Matthews International company and global supplier of marking and coding solutions, will be showcasing multiple methods of package printing at the WestPack 2019 trade show. Matthews’ inkjet and laser experts will be conducting demonstrations of systems printing on various substrates to demonstrate the diversity and versatility of Matthews Marking Systems products.
Highlighted solutions include:
VIAjet™ L-Series Thermal Inkjet Printer
With a variety of ink types and colors available, the VIAjet L-Series thermal inkjet printer is a clean, fast, and cost-effective alternative to thermal transfer and adhesive labels. It is ideal for marking and coding variable data in both primary packaging and industrial applications, imprinting onto paper, chipboard, corrugated, and plastics. Leveraging the same cartridge technology found in desktop printers, the L-Series provides high native print resolution (600 x 600 dots per inch) at speeds up to 1,200 feet per minute (366 meters per minute)—nearly twice as fast as competitive thermal inkjet systems. Printheads are available in 0.5-, 1- or 2- inch (12.7-, 25.4-, or 50.8-millimeter) print heights.
VIAjet™ T-Series High-Resolution Piezo Inkjet Printer
The VIAjet™ T-Series high-resolution Piezo inkjet printer provides a cost-effective alternative to adhesive labels and pre-printed corrugated cartons used in secondary packaging. T–Series printheads create high-resolution barcodes and images as tall as 4 inches (25.4 millimeters). Grouping multiple print heads together enables the marking of larger images, logos and multiple lines of text. Ideal for the fast-moving consumer goods industry, the T-Series comes in two printhead models: The T100 for side/vertical printing and the T100S for down/right-angle printing.
eMARK ECO Laser Coding System
Affordably priced for entry-level marking applications and those seeking to replace continuous inkjet systems, the new eMark ECO laser coding system is engineered for simple coding on primary packaging materials, including corrugated, paper and plastic. Because it requires no ink or consumables to mark items, and is virtually maintenance-free, the ECO offers a lower total cost of ownership than other small character coding technologies. Clean and environmentally friendly, the unit produces vector-quality, permanent coding of alphanumeric text, date and time codes, serial numbers, barcodes and 2D codes with a 10-watt power class, air-cooled CO2 laser.
MPERIA® Universal Automation Controller
The universal marking and coding automation platform MPERIA® manages and controls multiple technologies from a single interface. The software allows message management and creation for multiple printers across one or several production lines. Remote control functionality alleviates operator error and efficiently coordinates multiple printers simultaneously.
