The world’s most reliable large character ink jet print head is now even better. Re-engineered with an improved design and new internal components, the new REA JET 2.0 print heads operate at extremely high speeds while offering improved print quality and a significantly longer life cycle.

  • New high-tech internal materials increase reliability and print quality.
  • Re-engineered design reduces wear and tear inside the head, so heads last longer between cleanings or repairs.
  • 2.0 heads are compatible with all current and older REA JET DOD printing equipment.
  • The print frequency is twice as fast when used with the new REA JET TITAN controller, making it the fastest large character print head on the market.  Print at speeds up to 600 meters/minute (1,960 feet/minute)!

Character/Message Sizes

To achieve different character or message sizes with REA JET printers, the print heads can be used numerous ways:

32-dot ink jet print on rubber
Font Selection

Messages can consist of text using different size fonts.  For example, the message above uses the 32 x 20 font and the 10 x 10 font.

adjusting character height on a 16-dot REA JET print head
Print Head Rotation

Print heads can be rotated to make character sizes smaller, as shown above.  This also places the dots closer together to form more solid characters.

Print Head Stacking

Several print heads can be grouped together to work in unison to create extra large messages.
