According to Matthews, probably the significant will be laser marking bar codes on to cartons.
The laser marks a high quality bar code, plus uses no consumables to do so. Matthews will be able to show this for the first time in Australia.
Matthews will also demonstrate conventional marking onto cartons with lasers.
Matthews, which recently released the new in fibre laser technology in Australia, will also show how this new configuration of the e-SolarMark marks flexible film.
This is the first time this has been done in Australia. A major feature of fibre YAG branding is that when used on flexible films such as snackfood packaging the fibre laser will not perforate the material. And in many cases, the original field created for a small character inkjet code will be sufficient.
Matthews will also release the new Linx CIJ, the new 6900, a premium four-line machine.
Demonstrations will include the new SX 7 and SX 16 DOD inkjet coders; reliable entry-level carton-marking systems that can print on porous or non-porous surfaces, using pressurised ink canisters.
The coding, labelling and automatic data capture specialist is also running a series of seminars.
These include a potentially controversial talk by Uniform Code Council Global Symbology Committee member Rick Fox, who will question whether bar codes and RFID can co-habit.
Other presentations will look at RFID integration, plus Datalase, a laser-responsive substrate that enables bar coding and large amounts of text using laser at high speed.
According to Matthews, and just like previous years, the Chameleon Bar should prove quite popular.
Matthews Intelligent Identification will be on stand 224.
