Coding, Labelling & Traceability for Hardware and Timber

Timber and Hardware

From timber marking to barcode labelling, Matthews has the industrial technology and industry expertise you need to streamline your processes and improve your bottom line.

Matthews has worked with many Australian timber and hardware manufacturers, helping them implement cost-effective, compliant solutions for coding, labelling and traceability. And we can do the same for you.

Compliant coding

Make sure your timber and hardware products have the right barcodes in the right place. With larger hardware retailers putting the spotlight on barcode compliance, timber and hardware manufacturers need to have the right systems and processes in place to put barcodes on products, cartons and pallets. Talk to our experts to find out the best-fit solution for your needs - including plaster printing and wood printers.


Product traceability and branding for timber

Matthews’ advanced technology and expertise makes it easy to print alphanumeric and geometric technical specifications, as well as branding, on various grades and lengths of timber. Even at high speeds in demanding, hot and dusty environments.

Because timber generally moves along a production line in random order, we can link the coders to your timber mill’s grading system. This means the specifications for each stick coming down the line are known automatically, and the printed message is adjusted accordingly – without any operator intervention and OH&S risks.

Large Character Drop on Demand (DOD) inkjet printers are popular in mills for timber marking, plasterboard printing and printing on pallets, as they are robust and can easily withstand dust and vibrations. They can also print at speed, helping to improve your throughput. Depending on the application, other coders or labellers can also be used to code timber.

Matthews can provide a tailored solution for your hardware or timber marking business – talk to our experts today.
