Coding of paint buckets and metal cans

Definition of Task

  • Coding of synthetic (PP) paint pails and metal paint cans with the expiration date and batch number in many languages

Special Product Specification

  • The assignment of print jobs and automatic printing with the respective batch number is carried out by simply scanning the bar code on the production's accompanying documents
  • REA customized software (Script) has an allowance counter which makes a log of the number of coded products. When the allotted amount has been reached the print job will stop via the autostop function and the conveyor belt will also stop
  • A signal light shows the operating personnel when the printing assignment is completed
  • Printing of up to three lines at a product speed of between 7 and 30 m/min
  • Pails are marked sidewise, metal cans are marked upside down
  • High humidity due to the manufacture of latex paint
  • Multi-shift operation (24 hours, 6 days a week)

Advantages of the REA JET Solution

  • Printing data imported per scanning of a barcode direct from the production data sheet and automatically printed
  • Manual input no longer necessary for operating personnel
  • All-in-one solution: coding and marking of products & print job ends after reaching the allotted amount for the production order
  • Highly-flexible coding (print text, language) through non-contact coding and marking with inkjet systems - replaces expensive, personnel-extensive and manual labeling
  • Various print adjustments (upside down or sidewise)
