REA at LogiMAT: Increase efficiency, reduce costs
Muehltal, January 29, 2019 - Processes within the logistics industry must be closely networked with those of industry. The manufacturing industry, the retail and, in particular, the customers, are providing decisive impulses for the need for optimization within logistics. Topics such as complete traceability of commodity flows, real-time availability, networking and serialization are becoming increasingly important. The catchword industry 4.0 is on everyone's lips and is even thematized by medium-sized companies. But what are the advantages of digitization?
Companies that control their material and information flows quickly and error-free can gain competitive advantages with increasingly comparable products through high delivery capability and delivery speed and low error costs. The condition for this is the unique, error-free and machine-readable marking of all goods. Powerful coding and marking technology makes effective, intelligent control and automation of intralogistics processes possible in the first place.
At LogiMAT, REA will be presenting solutions for product marking and code verification that optimize the internal material flow from procurement to production to distribution and increase the degree of automation.
A secure and reliable technology is indispensable for networking. Innovative operating concepts, intelligently programmed software and high-quality components are the basis for success. Manufacturing companies are demanding ever faster, contact free and maintenance-free ink and laser marking systems as well as high-performance dispensing systems for printed labels. REA has been a pioneer in the field of coding and marking technology since 1982 and has sustainable systems in its portfolio which also meet the future requirements of modern intralogistics. REA JET systems mark products and packaging in high resolution with ink or laser. They are controlled via the REA JET TITAN platform, the most modern single operating concept for contact free coding and marking technology. 2D or rather Data Matrix codes, which can encode a lot of information on a small area, are on the rise. An integrated error correction makes 2D codes easy to read, even if they are damaged. In addition, they are significantly smaller, which results in lower ink consumption.
Connection to higher-level databases and markings with texts and characters from all over the world are particularly important for export-oriented companies. Thanks to Unicode support (UTF-8) and True Type Font capability, REA JET coding and marking systems can be used worldwide immediately. With an XML-based data structure and state-of-the-art Ethernet interfaces for data communication with other systems, they are ideally equipped for industry 4.0 requirements. The REA systems are also equipped with the operating option via web browser and the VNC server for remote maintenance. Thanks to the worldwide networkability of REA systems, companies with production plants at different locations around the world can transmit print data from a central location, avoid operating errors on site and thus guarantee high process reliability with a low risk of errors.
At LogiMAT, REA will present the latest coding and marking technology from the ink and laser sectors under the REA JET brand. Under the REA LABEL brand, high-performance labeling technology solutions such as pallet labelers, continuous labelers and the integration of robot technology will be shown.
Visitors with the demand for good code quality to achieve high first-pass reading rates with machine-readable codes will be enthusiastic about the latest generation of REA VeriCube devices. These REA VERIFIER brand systems enable preventive and standard-compliant code verification of almost all codes used worldwide. Visitors are cordially invited to bring code samples to the REA booth for analysis.
All REA products are 100% Made in Germany.
