Rea Jet is using the expo as a platform to showcase its cutting-edge inkjet and laser marking systems. Direct coding makes products clearly identifiable, supports counterfeit protection and improves production and factory logistics. As coded products can be identified via track and trace, the degree of automation in the factory can be increased and tires can be traced globally.
For contact-free inkjet marking of raw rubber felts, treads and finished tires, Rea Jet offers the upgraded Rea Jet DOD 2.0, which has a longer operating cycle. With protection class IP65, the robust printer is now more resistant. It is operated via a tablet, smartphone, touch display or a knob – even with gloves – and can be integrated into the existing IT infrastructure for synchronised processes according to IoT.
The company is also highlighting its RPS coding and marking system that marks rubber reliably with eco-friendly water-based inks at low costs at all stages of the tire production process. Markings are applied directly and contact-free onto the surface. Furthermore, the system enables fast and easy data exchange. Markings can either disappear during the vulcanisation process or captively bond with the rubber if required.
