Introduction to DOD (Drop on Demand Inkjet Printing)

We have a range of durable, reliable Drop on Demand (DOD) Inkjet printers. With large-character printing heights and the ability to use a wide variety of inks, the extremly versatile DOD printers can easily code onto a wide assortment of substrates, including timber, cardboard and other secondary packaging.

Each print-head contains several individual valves (usually 7, 16 or 32) that print dots at regular intervals. Arranged in a single column, the valves are able to open and close independently. They form ink drops "on demand" to form printed characters onto your product as it moves adjacent to the print-head.


Benefits of DOD Printing Machines

  • Higher print speeds: Matthews has pioneered the design and use of micro-plunger valves, with the smallest and therefore highest resolution drop on demand inkjet printing machines on the market. Smaller valves means higher print speeds, of up to 4 m/s.
  • Lower costs: DOD printers typically have lower capital and operational costs than other inkjet technologies.
  • Exceptional flexibility: Drop-on-Demand printers can use a wide variety of inks to mark many different substrates. And they can make low to medium resolution marks over heights ranging from 2.5 mm to 128 mm – or even higher when print-heads are linked together. However, their lower printing resolution limits their application for most retail packaging.
  • Minimal maintenance: Drop on demand printing machines are very robust and reliable, requiring minimal maintenance. Matthews’ DOD printing technology is manufactured in Sweden, originally for the Scandinavian timber industry. It is therefore well suited to tough environments, with dust, shocks and vibrations.

  • Highly flexible printing solution

  • Require minimal maintenance
