Pittsburgh, PA, February 1, 2012 – Matthews Marking Products introduces a new multi-technology controller and GUI platform for the future generation of Matthews’ marking technologies. The revolutionary new Viacode print control module runs on a real time operating system and high speed control network, providing you with a scalable, single-source control of multiple printers or production lines. Paired with the new T-Series high resolution printheads, this new printer provides a cost effective alternative to adhesive labels and pre-printed cartons.
Viacode is the window to your complete plant-level marking/coding/tracking process. Quickly and efficiently create, edit, or select messages from one location (even remotely) eliminating costly coding errors. The virtual network computing feature provides live software updates and minimizes downtime with onboard manuals/troubleshooting and remote tech support.
Low cost alternative
Print directly onto corrugated cartons at a fraction of the cost of adhesive labels, up to 25 times less! Matthews’ new T100 (100mm) and T50 (50mm) printheads provide exceptional print resolution and versatility along with unparalleled levels of readability. Mark your cartons with high resolution barcodes and text, using specially designed inks that provide bold, crisp edges with minimum bleed. With image heights of up to 4” per head, and unlimited stitching possibilities, you can print large graphics and several lines of text from one printhead or group of printheads. Eliminate your inventory of pre-printed cartons by branding on demand with Viacode.
