Large Character Drop on Demand (DOD) inkjet printers are an incredibly flexible, reliable and durable solution able to mark on a variety of substrates.
Matthews provides a range of robust DOD printers for printing onto secondary packaging and directly onto timber and hardware products, e.g. steel pipe, timber and roofing.
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.
Higher print speeds: Matthews has pioneered the design and use of micro-plunger valves, with the smallest and therefore highest resolution DOD print-heads 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: DOD printers 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.
