Muehltal, June 10, 2014 – at the Interpack show REA JET presented the new Multiple Black ink which opens up many new possibilities for industrial product identification. The fast-drying black solvent based ink is ideal for coding and marking of non-porous coated or high gloss surfaces. The drying time is a fraction of a second without any additional treatment. This fade-resistant ink is instantly smear- and waterproof. The excellent adhesion properties at extremely short drying time results in increased production speed ultimately leading to higher productivity in the plant.The ink has been developed by HP particularly for use on films and coated carton boxes. In combination with the thermal inkjet coder REA JET HR this outstanding ink is a real alternative to continuous ink jet systems. It offers excellent print quality with a resolution of up to 600 dpi. The high optical density, the brilliant blackness and excellent contrast make the ink ideal for product marking with 1D- and 2D-codes which is a requirement in many industries for tracking and tracing purposes.
The improved ink cartridge eases handling and increases production uptime. Because the ink cartridge has an integrated nozzle unit, which is replaced with each cartridge change, it is completely maintenance free. In addition, the ink shows excellent starting behavior. Even after the cartridge has been open for over 20 hours the ink shows an excellent starting behavior. Meaning that the REA JET HR is immediately ready to use at start of production on the following day.
The REA JET HR marks the product surfaces contact-free, highly efficient, absolutely clean and in high resolution. This is particularly important when printing 1D- and 2D-codes, complex logos and any available variety of True Type fonts for all kinds of languages.The very compact REA JET HR print heads can also be integrated into existing production lines when space is limited. The reliable system is modular designed for a large scale of industrial printing applications.
The new REA JET HR pro system family is designed for the special requirements of machine and systems engineering and is particularly suitable for control cabinet installation. The user-friendly handling and the numerous applications, in combination with the new Multiple Black ink, stirred great interest at Interpack packaging show in Duesseldorf and made the strong duo one of the show highlights.
