REA Elektronik is excited to introduce an innovative new metal marking system, the REA JET US, SMARKTEC system. Designed to assist manufacturers and metal processors in identifying ingots, billets, slabs, blooms, and “hot” coils, the SMARKTEC marking system is not only environmentally friendly, but improves tracking reliability of these components through all stages of production.
Human readable text, OCR characters and 2D barcodes are a few of the aspects of this innovative new spray technology that makes product identification simple, and allows for 100% traceability in addition to automatic data collection and error-free management of inventory.
The SMARKTEC marking system utilizes REA JET spray technology and paint in applying the marking, with ductile pipes being marked at a temperature of 800 degrees C. Essentially, printed marks are heat resistant, resisting temperatures of up to 1100 degree C following the marking process.
A few of the benefits of the SMARKTEC metal marking system include:
- Reduced labor and safety costs
- Text that is easily read by humans
- Environmentally friendly ink that contains no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds)
- Automatic data collection, providing 100% traceability
- Highly visible and easy to read stencils
- Machine (cameras and scanner) readable codes
For more than three decades SMARKTEC has focused on the needs of major steel groups, providing marking solutions which stem from the real needs of manufactures in steel products. The steel plant environment is one that is demanding; we provide solutions that are simple, reliable, and environmentally friendly, even in an industry requiring “heavy duty” solutions.
