REA JET FL

REA Elektronik has developed the REA JET FL Fibre Laser that allows for permanent marking of metal and plastics. Laser product marking has many advantages: it is consumable-free and low-maintenance, therefore hardly requiring follow-up costs. At the same time, the extremely long operational life span of the Fibre Laser system ensures high investment security. The high resolution print provides machine-readable codes and therefore the traceability of products.
