Matthews Drop-on-Demand (DOD) printers are the industrial workhorses of the coding world.

Recognised globally for their leading-edge printhead technology, the Matthews range of DOD inkjet coders are renowned for their ruggedness, reliability and economy. In environments where other technologies just can’t take the punishment, Matthews DOD keeps on delivering the results reliably, year after year.

Reynolds has been working with Matthews for over 20 years, and has developed such award-winning solutions as the dotComm range of coding systems based on Matthews technology. These are now recognised as setting the industry standard.


Matthews 8000+ Series

DOD

The latest generation DOD printheads, the 8000+ series, further extend Matthews’ unbeatable reputation for ruggedness and performance. Available in a range of configurations, with a vast choice of inks for different applications, the 8000+ series features enhanced nozzle plate and plunger designs that further improve performance and economy.

Matthews DOD heads can be matched with a wide range of ink supply systems, controllers and accessories to construct modular systems that can grow and change with your needs over time. The SX32 controller is ideal for more basic applications, while Matthews Mperia provides a complete coding management platform that scales to hundreds of printheads. Matthews also offer specialist controllers such as the v84i for OEM and integrated applications.

Features
  • Extremely rugged and reliable construction.
  • Longest shelf life for DOD valve print heads, with over 6 billion activations between rebuilds.
  • Available in 7, 16 and 32 valve models, and heads can be stacked for even bigger arrays.
  • Available in Mini, Midi and Maxi nozzle types.
  • Print heights from 2.5mm up to 128mm on a single printhead.
  • Print on almost any surface, porous or non-porous.
  • Operate flawlessly at speeds in excess of 240 m/min.
  • Ideal for harsh environments where other technologies can’t cope.

Matthews MPERIA V-Series

DOD

Powered by MPERIA, Matthews’ VIAjet V-Series marking system features super-reliable drop-on-demand (DOD) valve technology which marks on porous and non-porous substrates including metal, paper and pulp, wood, concrete, and plastic. Matthews’ DOD valve print heads are considered the fastest in the industry, marking product at speeds over 800 fpm (244 meters/min), with the longest life – over 6 billion firings per head.

The V-Series features large character print, ranging from 1/8” to 5” (3mm to 127mm), and the capability to stack print heads for large logos. These features, combined with rugged design, make V-Series ideal to meet the demands of extreme environments, such as building products, steel mills, and other challenging industries.

The VIAjet V-Series is powered by the MPERIA platform. The MPERIA controller effectively manages messages and settings for multiple printers across one or several production lines or plant locations. An extensive selection of pre-formatted and configurable counters, batch counts, user-defined text fields, and barcode symbologies makes message creation and selection a breeze with the intuitive, touch screen interface. Seamless integration with ERP/MRP/WMS/MOM systems helps to reduce coding errors. Best of all, MPERIA is expandable, allowing you to add other print heads or other print technologies as needed, promising a sound investment.

Our DOD valve technology and MPERIA controller are connected by V-Link, an enclosed module featuring an internal power supply and printhead driver board. Each V-Link drives up to 32 valves (1-4 print heads). Hundreds of V-Links can be networked through MPERIA, providing a flexible and scalable system for small or very large applications.

Features
  • Enterprise level coding platform.
  • The most versatile coding platform available.
  • Extensive selection of fast dry and/or pigmented inks available.
  • 7”, 12” or 15” MPERIA touch-screen controllers, with IP-rated option.
  • Effortless integration with ERP/MRP, MOM or WMS systems.
  • From single printhead solutions through to hundreds of networked printheads, Mperia does it all.
  • Add or change printheads as your needs change, or even mix and match coding technologies, such as Thermal and Impulse.

Reynolds dotComm4

Complete DOD System

The dotComm coder technology was developed to provide an environmentally friendly, no waste, drop-on-demand system that addressed specific requirements in the dairy industry. After many years of proving its reliability and user error minimisation, the dotComm4 was released to open this system to any industry, by allowing customisation and new levels of remote communication and integration.

Using the unbreakable Matthews 8000+ Series printheads and the SX32i controller as its printing hardware, the dotComm4 is ideal for printing on the side of powder bags, sheet metal, and anything in between.

Features
  • Large 23L ink capacity.
  • Error-free coding based on simple product selection.
  • Full remote control available through line control devices.
