Matthews Marking Systems will be exhibiting at the WestPack 2018 show in Anaheim, CA February 6-8 in booth 5511
Pittsburgh, PA (January 18, 2018) – Matthews Marking Systems, a Matthews International company and global supplier of printing solutions for the CPG market, will be showcasing three methods of package printing and coding at the WestPack 2018 trade show. Matthews experts will be conducting demos of all three 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 asfast as competitive thermal inkjet systems. Print heads 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 print heads 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 consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies, the T-Series comes in two print head 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 cardboard boxes, paper and thermal labels. Because it requires no ink or consumables to mark items, and is virtually maintenance-free, the eMark Eco offers a lower total cost 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, aircooled CO2 laser.
