PackExpo 2017: High-Resolution, On-Demand Branding of Corrugated Cases, Secondary Packaging with Piezo Inkjet Printer

Managed by the MPERIA® marking and coding automation platform, Matthews Marking System’s VIAjet™ T-Series high-resolution printer—showcased in Booth C-3632—replaces adhesive labels, pre-printed boxes for significant savings.

PITTSBURGH, PA (August 15, 2017) — Delivering on-demand branding to secondary packaging lines, the VIAjet™ T-Series high-resolution Piezo inkjet printer from Matthews Marking Systems is a cost-effective alternative to adhesive labels and pre-printed corrugated cartons. A demo model of the VIAjet T-Series, controlled by the MPERIA marking and coding automation platform, can be seen in Booth C-3632 throughout PackExpo Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada, September 25-27, 2017.

The VIAjet T-Series is controlled by MPERIA, allowing it to adapt to virtually any marking and coding environment. MPERIA centralizes control of all primary, secondary and tertiary print operations, and easily integrates with current enterprise systems and existing third-party marking and coding equipment to reduce downtime and cost while increasing productivity. Equipped with a choice of intuitive, touchscreen graphical user interfaces (GUI), MPERIA makes message creation and selection simple by automatically synchronizing graphic and source data inputs from enterprise resource planning (ERP), warehouse management systems (WMS), programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and Big Data systems with minimal information technology (IT) effort.

Ideal for consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies, and web-based industrial customers, the T-Series comes in two print head models: The T100 for side/vertical printing and the T100S for down/right-angle printing. The T-Series print heads create high-resolution barcodes and images as tall as 4 inches (25.4 millimeters). Grouping multiple print heads together enables the marking of larger images, graphics, messaging, logos and multiple lines of text, as well as “best by,” production time and lot coding information.

The VIAjet T-Series and MPERIA platform 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
