A new easy-to-use, low-cost inkjet printhead controller for marking extruded plastics such as vinyl siding and pipe was exhibited at NPE in Chicago last month by Matthews Marking Products, Pittsburgh. The I-Mark SX32 controller is said to be the first to combine the low maintenance and reliability of Matthews' "drop-on-demand" (DOD) printheads with affordability and a user-friendly interface. While it has features comparable to the company's high-end controllers, it costs 30% to 50% less. The SX32 can be used with a wide range of standard or enhanced-valve DOD printheads to produce graphics, logos, and date codes from 0.09 to 5 in. high.
