Matthews Marking Systems, Pittsburgh, Pa., launched a new product line focusing on OEM customers that want to integrate marking and coding equipment into their machines.

The products included are an automation software controller, an enclosed drop on demand (DOD) valve jet technology driver and an enclosed thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology driver.  

Because MPERIA is said to be the only universal controller designed to work with any print technology, OEMs can easily change the printers on the line, per their customers’ needs. One customer might choose a TIJ-based system because of its application-based need for high-resolution codes while another might want valve jet DOD because they want the unprecedented reliability. All products in the OEM line are more compact than standard products, making integration into current production lines a cinch. 

MPERIA OEM Controller, the automation software controller, is a production line controller ideal for OEMs controlling printers while utilizing their own user interface. The MPERIA OEM Controller is available in Lite, Standard and Advanced, and can be remotely managed via VNC and integrated by the end user with either XML or Command Line Protocol.  

The V-Link OEM, the enclosed DOD valve jet technology driver, controls the company’s 8,000-plus valve jet printheads, and delivers low ink consumption with high print quality.

The enclosed TIJ technology driver, the L-Link, is a driver module for up to four of Matthews’ L-Series L1 printheads, which have the ability to print a high quality 12.5mm (½ inch) mark at extreme speeds of 480 m/min (1600 ft/min).
