Muehltal, February 10, 2015 – legislature and consumers expect from the food industry a comprehensive product marking. Since the end of 2014, the detailed requirements of the EU Food Information Regulation must be considered. At the Anuga FoodTec REA JET presents technologies for contact-free, high-resolution marking that allow an excellently readable and durable print on smooth, non-absorbent surfaces. The systems work without solvents and are therefore ideally suited for the food and beverage industry.
For the marking of foils and plastics the maintenance-free thermal inkjet printer REA JET HR is suitable. In connection with eco-friendly, fast drying inks the REA JET HR marks smooth, non-absorbent surfaces effectively and hygienically. Due to the maintenance-free HP print head technology there are no additional running costs for service and spare parts. Due to the absence of solvent the fire hazard and warehouse security efforts are significantly reduced, unwanted odors and a direct influence to the packaged product are avoided. These features make the HR system a clean and safe alternative to many continuous ink jet systems.
With the new ink REA JET Multiple Black DC a new solution is presented at the Anuga FoodTec which is specifically developed for marking of non-absorbent surfaces. The ink is especially qualified for marking of flow wrappings. It is characterized by extremely fast drying time of the print and a significant increase of blackness which are the two main unique selling propositions.
Due to the interfaces which are a standard feature the HR marking systems are perfectly suited for simple integration into the production lines. The directly supported technologies such as XML, True Type Fonts, Unicode, communication via TCP/IP and many more do not only offer in the context of Industry 4.0 a simple and reliable cross-system operation, configuration and networking. All these features make the REA JET HR the system of choice for machine builders and OEMs. The large scope of performance and the compact dimensions of the pro-series allow for easy integration of the HR controller into the control cabinet.
All major retailers manage their logistics by barcodes or matrix codes. To support automation, manufacturers are encouraged to apply the codes in optimum quality. At the exhibition REA VERIFIER shows mobile and stationary solutions for quality check of 1D and 2D codes which are successfully in use at leading retail corporations for a long time.
