Original Press Release:

Matthews Introduces New Versatile Controller with Large Color Touchscreen for Longer-Life Drop-on-Demand Ink Jet Marking

Pittsburgh, PA, January 10, 2008 - Matthews Marking Products announces the availability of the latest addition to its Drop-on-Demand (DOD) ink jet printing controller family, the I-Mark(TM) V84.

Ideal for printing 4-5 lines of text, graphics/logos, and bar codes for packaging and industrial applications, the new V84 controller features an easy-to-use 10.4 inch color touchscreen interface. The V84 can drive either standard printheads or Matthews' new low ink-consumption, high-resolution 8000 Series DOD printheads, which last five times longer than other DOD printheads.

Instead of global settings, the V84 allows for independent control of up to four DOD printheads to allow for maximum flexibility. Icon-based navigation and WYSIWYG format simplify message set-up and changes. Most printer functions are easily completed in a minute or less, saving time and money.

Maximum print speed is 680 fpm (feet per minute) and characters may be from 3/32 in. (2.38mm) to 5 in. (127 mm) high, depending on the printheads used. The V84 uses fast-dry, pigmented, dye, and water-based inks in a wide range of colors to print on porous and non-porous surfaces.

"The V84 can also run up to four photo cells," notes Donna Meade, Matthews V84 Product Manager," which makes it particularly advantageous for packaging applications where four sides of a carton need to be marked."
