With our advanced range of coding, labelling and inspection technologies, and our deep expertise in the water bottling industry, you have everything you need to streamline your processes and increase your bottom line. 

Flexible technology for your business

From high-speed lines to wet environments, we can help you implement the right labelling and coding technology for your unique business needs. And because our technologies are easy to use and highly adaptable, you have everything you need to improve efficiency and drive your bottom line. 

Right label, right place

Getting the right label in the right place is essential for your water bottles. With Matthews, you have the choice of in-line labelling systems or label applicators depending on your needs. Our labellers are highly versatile and can apply labels onto shrink-wrap, bottles, cartons and more. 
To ensure every label is exactly where it should be, we can also provide vision inspection technology. These versatile systems can be used to also inspect fill levels, closure seals, correct coding and more. Find out how our vision inspection systems can help optimise your processes and protect your profits. 

Reliable product identification

Product identification is essential in the water bottling industry. Coding may be used for best before dates as well as traceability, identifying the contract bottler, the production line, Julian date, time and more. Matthews has a broad range of coders that can print onto a variety of substrates, including primary packaging (such as plastic bottles) and also secondary packaging (cartons and pallets). As well as giving a professional look, the reliable coders will also reduce the risk of miscoding, and not coding at all, so you can minimise waste.
