REA JET coding and marking systems: faster, more efficient, more connective
Muehltal, 18th August 2017 – REA JET will present new solutions for industrial coding and marking at this year’s Labelexpo in Brussels. Exhibition visitors can look forward to an impressive portfolio of innovative labeling, inkjet and laser systems as well as code verification devices.
Today, the printing industry demands for small batch sizes, individualized products with variable elements and customization at late stage (Late Stage Customization). For being competitive with digital printing, the variety of rotogravure, flexography and offset printing machines needs to be expanded correspondingly. The refitting with the Thermal Inkjet Printer REA JET HR pro provides cost effective solution. It enables digital inline printing of variable data and increases efficiency of every system or machine.
At the REA booth, they will demonstrate label finishing with an AB Graphic machine which includes a REA JET HR pro OEM coding and marking system with eight print heads. Labels are marked on the front with variable codes and on the back with ongoing numbering. Thanks to the proven HP cartridge technology, the high-resolution printers of the REA JET HR pro OEM series are maintenance-free. The elaborate print head design and the sturdy stainless steel casing make it suitable for industrial needs.
For ink and laser-based marking technology, REA JET has developed the uniform operating concept REA JET TITAN platform. Operation is realized via touch-screen, keyboard or push-turn-jog-dial knob, through mobile devices via WLAN or on the PC. The included VNC server allows for remote control and maintenance. All components are compatible for industry 4.0. Latest Ethernet interfaces enable an easy integration into the manufacturing process. The compact controllers can be implemented in a space-saving manner. The REA JET HR pro OEM variant can even be integrated completely. Moreover, it can be operated via the machine control panel. All that makes the HR pro OEM first choice for machine engineering and integrators.
REA will also present the robot cell for coding and marking of products. The robot cell combines both technologies of code marking and code quality verification with a Kawasaki robot. Products are marked by ink, laser and labels with texts, logos as well as 1D and 2D codes. A REA VERIFIER code verification device ensures the inline quality control of the applied codes. According to industry standards, goods have to be equipped with codes to avoid costly and time-consuming re-reading rates. During the Labelexpo, REA VERIFIER experts will explain how to optimize markings until they meet the requirements.
