Matthews Marking Systems Announces New Line of Laser Coders

Featuring upgraded user interface, new hardware designs and expanded integration options.

Pittsburgh, PA, June 11, 2019
Matthews Marking Systems, a leading manufacturer of marking and coding products, announces a new line of lasers called e-SolarMark+. eSolarMark+ units come in a variety of laser types including CO2, fiber and a range of diode, including UV and Green diodes. The wide range of technologies offered ensures a compatible laser for almost any substrate.

The upgraded 15” touchscreen controller now features a wide variety of hardware upgrades including additional user-configurable I/O and parent/child controller configurations. The new controlling software, SolPRO, boasts improvements in its user interface graphic handling, non-Latin language support, remote diagnostics and enhanced support for a wide variety of 2D codes.

Featuring a large, multi-colored LED to indicate status, the new laser design offers a sealed beam path to further limit dust ingress, beam bending modules for tight spaces and a better exterior design for simple maintenance. Default laser configurations are air cooled but can be easily upgraded to water-cooled for high-temperature environments.

In addition to the laser hardware improvements, a new line of scanning heads for the eSolarMark+ are also being introduced. The new scanning heads maintain the accuracy of the e-SolarMark units while significantly expanding the range of marking windows, which feature the Large Area (LA) marking heads that can manage print areas up to 28”x12” (700mmx300mm).

“The line of e-SolarMark+ lasers are a comprehensive market offering that ensures all applications and substrates have a compatible laser,” says Raymond Fortuna, Product Manager. “Our target customer is one that wishes to remove consumables from their marking and coding while ensuring that their product receives a permanent and crisp, quality mark. High-speed lines or lines with FDA requirements can also benefit from a laser marking product because no chemicals are being introduced to the product substrate or production facility. Lastly, the large area marking fields make the e-SolarMark+ lasers perfect for web printing on foils and plastics. The larger the printing area per laser, the fewer lasers needed to print the whole web.”For more information on Matthews’ products and services, please reach out to Matthews Marking Systems at 1-800-775-7775, [email protected] or online at
