MATTHEWS Intelligent Identification has been appointed Australia-NZ representative for Solaris laser-coding technology.
The benefit of laser coders is that they remove the need for consumables - ink and solvent - to mark products.
"We came across the Solaris laser coding system at Interpack, in Dusseldorf [Germany] in April,” Matthews spokesman Phil Biggs said.
“Our key search criteria were print performance, print quality, strong reference lists and extensive technical credentials.
“The Solaris laser system fits with our aim for low cost of ownership and our policy of only selling proven technology: while Solaris is not a household name in Australia, it has a large installed base across the globe."
Solaris manufactures SolarJet lasers for stationary marking and engraving as well as 'on the fly' package coding.
Biggs said the SolarJet 2.0 could also print dot matrix characters if needed.
SolarJets can print permanent and flexible alpha-numeric texts, dates or times, serial numbers, a range of barcodes, 2D codes and graphics, all without stopping the products.
The SolarJet comes with pre-installed, user-friendly software; the menu-driven user interface allows users to quickly and efficiently control a marking job.
