MPERIA™ print control technology delivers ROI for large-scale food and beverage company in less than 6 months.
When a well-known food and beverage manufacturer needed to implement an in-line, dual-sided printing solution to mark label information on two sides of a shipping case, the company turned to Matthews Marking Systems. Matthews’ MPERIA™ print controller and software—used to power dual headed VIAjet™ T-Series piezo hi-resolution ink jet printheads was selected as the ideal solution.
The system accommodates a label format with alpha numeric code information, as well as GTIN barcode. It also allows the manufacturer to keep its existing label and messaging creation software, maintaining line side production consistency. To do this, a custom plug-in was created that enables MPERIA™ to seamlessly translate the label file created in the existing software and print “A” grade barcodes.
By eliminating the costs associated with labels and other consumables, the manufacturer saved approximately $8,000 per month, producing a return on investment (ROI) within six months of the new system’s installation.
In 1850, John Dixon Matthews emigrated from Sheffield, England to open a small engraving shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He became a pre-eminent provider of high-quality identification products and services, including stamping dies, branding irons, ornate engravings and stamps for wooden crates. His company flourished, converting from a partnership to a corporation in 1902.
