High Resolution Printing

With an extensive range of products and an in- house engineering department, Matthews is able to design, integrate and implement marking systems that others simply cannot touch.

From inventory and quality control applications to regulatory compliance, branding and product ID solution, Matthews has the industry experience and technical know-how to get the job done.

With a variety of controllers, printheads, and
inks available to choose from, Drop-On-Demand printing is suitable for many different packaging and industrial applications. Case coding, bags, lumber, and metals are just a few of the common applications where Matthews have provided successful solutions. The flexible, modular design allows you to select the right combination for your needs.

Matthews Marking Systems also offers a unique large character inkjet printing system developed specifically for printing onto the uncured rubber, where the ink must withstand the curing process; including tire and tread marking. The robust design of the ACIS (Agitating & Circulating Ink System) significantly reduces the time required to clean and maintain equipment. The printer utilizes a fast dry, HAPS free, curable, white pigmented ink, which will not transfer to the mold, leaving any shadow of the previous mark and no adverse effect on the finished product.
