PackExpo 2017: Compact, Entry-Level Priced Laser Coding System Easily Installs on Primary Packaging Lines

Matthews Marking System’s eMark Eco laser coding system—featured in Booth C-3632—is a low maintenance- and consumables-free alternative to continuous ink jet.

PITTSBURGH, PA (August 15, 2017) — Compact for easy installation on primary packaging lines, including those with minimal open floorspace and surrounding facility footprint, the eMark Eco laser coding system from Matthews Marking Systems is engineered for simple coding on cardboard boxes, paper and thermal labels. It is also affordably priced for entry-level marking applications and operations seeking to replace continuous inkjet systems in food, beverage, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and industrial applications. A demo model of the eMark Eco can be seen in Booth C-3632 throughout PackExpo Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada, September 25-27, 2017.

The eMark Eco measures 20 inches (533 millimeters) long and weighs 15 pounds (7 kilograms) for easy integration into new and existing production lines. 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, air-cooled CO2 laser.

Because it requires no ink consumables to mark items and is low maintenance, the eMark Eco offers a lower total cost ownership than other imprinting technologies. Features include a built-in start/stop key and LED status indicator lights. Optionally, a hand-held touchscreen interface terminal includes user-friendly preview, edit and new job creation modes for system and project setup.

The eMark Eco laser coding system can be seen in Booth C-3632 throughout PackExpo. For more information, contact Natalie Pizzi at Matthews Marking Systems at 412.477.5019,, or visit
