Although REA JET has enjoyed success for more than 30 years, which began when the company developed cashless payment systems in Germany, the company has a much wider range of focus today, catering to the coding and marking needs of Industry 4.0. Also called the ‘fourth Industrial Revolution,’ Industry 4.0 simply refers to the need for equipment and machinery that is capable of functioning flawlessly and keeping up in today’s fast-paced production environment, where packaging and printing speeds continue to grow.
Simply put, the technologies of yesteryear cannot keep up in today’s manufacturing environment. REA JET meets a wide range of needs for industrial customers including low and high resolution printing, measurement equipment for quality control of codes, value-added solutions for multi-dimensional codes and bar codes, and more.
The latest equipment developed by REA JET was showcased at Interpack 2014 this month, including the company’s technologically advanced new laser and ink based printing systems. This equipment focuses on cost efficiency, simple integration, and environmental friendliness within the factory for the machinery construction industry, and features intelligent interface management. These laser and ink based printing systems makes it possible to operate and maintain the equipment via the Internet as well.
Michael Neuschafer, managing director at REA Elektronik GmbH in Muhltal, Germany, said recently that REA works diligently to stay ahead of the competition in terms of developing, producing, and distributing solutions which cater to clients’ needs. Quality is another top factor; while REA does not claim to offer cheap prices for the coding and marking solutions they provide, in the end the equipment proves to be cost-effective for customers due to the reduced occurrence of machine failures and errors.
“Future-proof” technologies that require little or no maintenance and deliver results is ultimately what REA JET does. Manufacturers in the pharmaceutical, packaging, cable/wire, wood, steel/metal, food and beverage, and chemical/bulk powders industries are invited to learn more about REA JET coding and marking solutions.
