REA JET SG large character ink jet printers are designed for marking on industrial products in harsh manufacturing environments. These robust drop-on-demand printers are the ideal solution for continuous printing on structural metals, pipe, automotive products, and building materials.
Reliable operation in tough applications.
All system components are water resistant dust-proof for 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. Mark text, logos, and date codes at line speeds of up to 800 feet/minute (250 meters/minute).
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.
