Matthews Adds New Color Options For Popular Contact Marking System
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, May 20, 2002 - Matthews International has introduced the CC101 Pulsar Contact Coder a new, economical reciprocating marking system that allows effective variable marking in up to 10 standard colored inks. Alternative pigmented inks of any color can be custom formulated to mark both light and dark substrates or mark specific product applications where colors may be frequently changed.
A product line extension of Matthews' CC100 Contact Coder, the CC101 Pulsar Contact Coder is a pneumatically operated printer that marks products and packages at speeds up to 160 units per minute. A primary advantage of the Matthews Pulsar Coder is the ability to use thicker, pigmented inks by pulsing air to a specially designed ink cartridge, resulting in vibrant color marking which is easily discernible on light or dark substrates.
The system integrates easily with form/fill/seal equipment, as well as with bagging and cartoning operations to form a complete packaging system.
The CC101 system operates by relaying an input signal that moves a regulated air pulse to a small pneumatic cylinder. Marking is performed with rubber face type (up to 24mm x 24mm) mounted to a dovetailed holder. This assembly is moved pneumatically to mark the product, then returns to position for the next cycle.
The CC101 Pulsar Contact Coder prints logos, product codes, expiration dates, prices on boxes, bottles, cans, glass jars, plastic bags, metal parts, among many applications.
