Systems for product and packaging marking and code verification for the pharmaceutical and medical technology industry

Everything from a single source: REA Elektronik will showcase state-of-the-art coding and marking solutions at ACHEMA 2024

Mühltal, 14. May 2024 - The industry needs correct, permanent and legible markings. REA Elektronik, recognized by Pharma Tech Outlook as a Top 10 Pharma Tech Solution Provider, supplies world-renowned systems for their application and verification - all from a single source. At ACHEMA 2024, the full-range supplier will be presenting its REA JET product lines - including newly developed marking inks - REA LABEL and REA VERIFIER.

Whether UDI for medical devices or product numbers such as the GTIN, NTIN and PPN - when companies in the pharmaceutical, chemical or medical device industry mark their goods or their primary, secondary or tertiary packaging, they have to be able to rely on the technologies used. The systems have to fit reliably into the production process, the markings have to comply with standards, contain all the necessary information, adhere permanently to the respective substrate and also remain clearly readable for as long as they are needed.

REA Elektronik has the required hardware and software, a wide versatile range of inks and, above all, the expertise to meet all of these requirements - from selecting the right codes to choosing the right technology, integrating them into higher-level systems for control or data connection, to code quality verification, and now also 100% inline. Experts from REA sit on various standards committees and incorporate the knowledge gained there into the three product lines, which are developed and produced in Germany: REA JET for contact-free marking with ink and laser, REA LABEL for labeling and REA VERIFIER for the inspection of matrix and barcodes.

REA Elektronik is also a GS1 Solution Provider and Loftware NiceLabel Partner, develops individual solutions for a wide range of industries for the global identification of products and has been recognized as a Top 10 Pharma Tech Solution Provider by Pharma Tech Outlook. In addition to its systems, REA will be showcasing its extensive portfolio of inks for all REA JET printing technologies at ACHEMA 2024, including innovations with improved properties.

The new UP printer with patented inks: from oil-based to light-curing

Visitors to ACHEMA 2024 will see the REA JET UP for the first time at this trade show. UP stands for Universal Print - the all-rounder prints contact-free on a wide variety of surfaces at three times the speed of other systems. Its patented, fast-drying inks range from oil and light solvent-based to light-curing and have been developed for high-resolution direct printing on a versatile range of substrates - from absorbent materials such as paper to finished surfaces.

A will also be presenting the REA JET HR 2.0 inkjet technology to visitors at ACHEMA 2024. In combination with the REA JET CL laser, folding boxes are marked or labeled efficiently, fast, reliably and in the highest quality. While the inkjet printer applies the content with REA JET's standard and special inks, the CO2 laser marks by removing the ink from a dark printed surface in such a way that a code and plain text become legible.

The print & apply systems from REA LABEL also stand for individual solutions for implementing industrial marking tasks with labels. On display at ACHEMA 2024: the REA LABEL ColorJet 2 color label printer - a cost-effective and practical alternative to external printshops. Using high-quality 1:1 full-color printing, it produces individual labels or small to medium-sized series in the highest resolution of up to 1,200 dpi and with a print width of up to 21 centimetres.

Verifying code quality is a must, especially for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. The code verification systems from REA VERIFIER verify the correct structure of 1D barcodes and 2D matrix codes and their optimum readability inline and offline in versatile situations.
