Matthews Marking System’s VIAjet™ V-Series drop-on-demand (DOD) valve jet system—displayed in PackExpo Booth S-3429—is engineered for rugged, challenging operations.
PITTSBURGH, PA (October 17, 2016) — Rugged and durable, the VIAjet V-Series drop-on-demand (DOD) large character marking system from Matthews Marking Systems features reliable valve technology engineered for challenging industrial and packing applications. A demo model of the VIAjet V-Series will be in action in Booth S-3429 throughout PackExpo International at McCormick Place in Chicago, November 6-9, 2016.
Intended for tertiary marking and coding applications, the VIAjet V-Series marks on both porous and non-porous substrates, including metal, paper and pulp, wood, concrete, and plastic. For high-speed production, the V-Series print heads can mark at rates up to 800 feet per minute (244 meters per minute). Additionally, the durable V-Series’ print heads are rated for a long lifespan of 6 billion firings apiece.
The V-Series’ large character print—ranging from 0.125 to 5 inches (3 to 127 millimeters)—combined with Matthews’ selection of pigmented inks, makes it ideal for building products marking in particular. To produce larger image sizes, multiple V-Series print heads can be stacked and networked with the enclosed V-Link module that includes an internal power supply and print head driver board.
Additionally, the VIAjet V-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 V-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.
