Process reliability in
Tube marking with REA JET

Muehltal, February 20th 2014 – On the occasion of the Tube show REA JET shows variable systems for inner and outer marking of pipes. These solutions meet the demands for marking with inks, laser and paints. In particular, the marking with DataMatrix codes lays the foundations for a rapid identification and traceability of products and thus the basis for the optimization of all processes and procedures.

On the trade show in Hall 6, Booth D40 REA JET presents robust solutions for pipe manufacturers who need to mark their products reliable and traceable. REA JET shows steel tubes marked with DataMatrix Codes. The REA JET Large Character Ink Jet DOD and Spray Mark Technology Systems process the data received from the production master computer and convert it in real-time into serialized in readable text and 2D codes. Thereby each marking is unique and each tube is traceable as one of a kind.

In addition to the marking of the outer surfaces of pipes, the DOD is also suitable for inner marking of pipes starting from 200 mm inner diameter. To do that a compact built 32 nozzle print head mounted to a special mounting device is driven into the tube. The contact-free marking takes place during the rotation of the tube. The time-consuming and error-prone method of using stencils is no longer required.

Also Spray Mark Technology solutions are presented for marking weld lines and colored rings onto pipes as well as for longitudinal marking of wire cables. These markings support the identification, quality inspection and the correct installation of the respective products. Spray Mark Technology systems are also used to apply paint full-screen to prepare the pipe for inner tube marking. After that a REA JET CL CO2 laser system removes the paint and leaves a very well legible and sharp-edged marking.

For high-resolution, contact-free marking of metal or plastic surfaces REA has the Ink Jet printer REA JET HR in its range. The excellent readability of the high resolution print image is a great advantage especially for small pipe diameters. The available inks convince by excellent adhesion and fast drying time.

For the first time REA introduces the brand-new REA JET FL fiber laser for captive marking of metal, plastics and other materials. The high beam quality and energy density of the laser beam ensures short marking times and excellent marking quality even with very filigree marking content. The REA JET FL fiber laser is the first choice for the growing demand of direct part marking (DPM) of metal surfaces.
