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


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. Matthews Mperia provides a complete coding management platform that scales to hundreds of printheads. Matthews also offers integrated applications.

  • 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


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.

  • 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 Group dotComm5

Complete DOD System

Our dotComm coder technology delivers an environmentally friendly , low waste , drop-on-demand system that addresses specific coding requirements of the dairy industry and is ideal for printing on powder bags, cartons and other bulk packaging types commonly used in the dairy industry.

The dotComm5 extends upon the well-proven reliability and user error minimisation of the dotComm series with several excellent new features.

The dotComm5 continues with the proven reliability and performance of the Matthews DOD printhead technology and large 23-litre ink capacity. It now features full WYSIWYG display and greatly enhanced message formatting and graphics capabilities, all in one intuitive colour touch-screen interface.

Under the hood, the updated solvent recapture system reduces solvent waste and the environmental footprint of the coder while extending the system's run time. Enhancements to the fluid management system control mean even sharper printing and reduced ink consumption.

Fully compatible with the dotComm4 command protocols, the dotComm5 also provides greatly enhanced integration capabilities for linking into MES and ERP systems, and custom scripting capabilities for specific applications.

Key Features:

• Intuitive 12” colour touch screen
• Large 23-Litre ink capacity
• Error-free coding based on simple product selection
• Full remote access available through line control devices
• Improved solvent recapture system reduces waste
• Extended message formatting and graphics capabilities
• Full backwards compatibility with the dotComm4

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 Mperia controller as its printing hardware, the dotComm4 is ideal for printing on the side of powder bags, sheet metal, and anything in between.

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