Coding on Steel Sheets

Background
The customer is in the steel shearing manufacturing environment.

Application Requirement
White and Black Color batch number coding on the sheet is required depending on material which are mild steel, 304L, 304, 304/L or 316 Stainless Steel. The operating environment is typically exposed to extensive dust and dirt which is unavoidable in the industry of steel manufacturing.
Solution
REA-JET 16 Dots system (DOD Technology) with pigmented ink system and die based ink system were installed on the cut to length machine. During the shearing process, the steel coil is being pulled to the desired length prior to cutting, the REA-JET system which is synchronized with the wheel encoder print the batch number on the steel while it move past the printhead.

Changing the ink color from white to black or vice versa is made so easy by just connecting the respective ink system to the printhead without tedious flushing of ink system and re-calibration of the system.
