Matthews Marking System’s VIAjet™ L-Series thermal inkjet printer—featured in PackExpo Booth S-3429—produces high native resolution marks at speeds up to 1,200 feet per minute.
PITTSBURGH, PA (October 17, 2016) — With a variety of ink types and colors available, the VIAjet™ L-Series thermal inkjet printer from Matthews Marking Systems 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. A demo model of the VIAjet L-Series can be seen in Booth S-3429 throughout PackExpo International at McCormick Place in Chicago, November 6-9, 2016.
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. Print heads are available in 0.5-, 1- or 2-inch (12.7-, 25.4-, or 50.8-millimeter) print heights.
The system is also expandable, allowing for the addition of other print heads as needed. For applications using heavy ink volumes, the L-Series can be equipped with a bulk ink supply system for higher productivity and less downtime.
Moreover, the VIAjet L-Series is controlled by MPERIA™, Matthews’ universal print platform that enables complete, single-source management of enterprise marking and coding operations across different printing technologies and brands. Via an Ethernet connection, the controller manages multiple production lines across facilities located worldwide. It populates production data in real-time from order processing files and new or existing databases, including SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP), manufacturing resource planning (MRP) and warehouse management systems (WMS). Equipped with an intuitive, touchscreen graphical user interface (GUI) MPERIA makes local and remote message creation and selection simple, supporting production managers with a built-in image editor and remote tech support for minimal downtime.
The VIAjet L-Series and MPERIA products can be seen in Booth S-3429 throughout PackExpo. For more information, contact Lyndsey Farrow at Matthews Marking Systems at 412.665.2536, [email protected], or visit matthewsmarking.com.
