REA JET SG large character ink jet printers are designed for reliable marking on industrial products in harsh manufacturing environments. All system components are dust-proof and water-resistant for rigorous industrial use. The REA JET print heads – with their patented "plunger" system – deliver superior performance compared to any other print head on the market.

Designed to Keep Operating Costs Low

The REA JET's system design ensures maximum uptime. The print heads feature a purge button to quickly clear the nozzles while the printer is on-line, and nozzles are kept clean by following simple cleaning procedures. When maintenance is needed, any system component can be easily exchanged using the quick-change connections.
