With the help of latest technology, dot pin marking machines can save cost and time for manufacturers so these valuable resources can be invested elsewhere! These machines make small dots with the help of a pneumatically driven pin for markings in any form in either straight lines or curves, to form texts, logos, designs, 2D matrix, etc. hat are easy to read by naked eye of a person. Dot pin marking is an efficient, fast, and accurate method of marking the parts.
Dot pin marking systems also known by many names such as Micro-percussion marking systems or stylus pin systems. Though, these machines are very popular with the aerospace industry, many other industries have started appreciating their technology, efficiency and are using these machines for their part marking purposes. This proves the ability of these machines in efficient and robust markings on any surfaces.
These machines are available in different types such as hand-held or portable, bench mounted, or integrated, etc. According to your specific requirement, you can chose a category of dot pin marking machines, some of the popular stylus pin system machines available on the market today are:
* Desktop Dot Pin Machines: Perfect for engraving or marking on flat surfaces could be – plastic or metal surfaces-, which have a hardness of about HRC 60. Based on the surfaces of the material to mark, these machines work perfect on a standard marking area of 10mm by 80mm surfaces at speeds of 30-40mm/s with depths of about 0.1 mm to 2 mm. Such machines are perfect for nameplate engraving. They can mark English letters, special symbols, bar codes, graphics, among many other types of designs, etc. Desktop machines can mark small or medium parts with flat surface, works with less maintenance and operational costs, without any problems of jamming and can adapt to any condition easily with high levels of customization.
* Handheld or Portable Dot Pin Machines: These machines are lightweight, hence are portable. Suitable for heavy metal parts such as the chassis, etc. for marking VIN numbers, etc. With a marking area of 150 mm by 50 mm, these machines can mark with the speeds of 30 mm – 40 mm per seconds using the support of an electromagnetic base. These machines can mark on a surface with a harness of up to HRC 60. These machines are highly flexible and are a good fit for a variety of application; come with an electromagnetic base, they produce the most precise and deep markings on surfaces.
With the importance of marking the industrial parts increasing as more and more government and regulatory bodies make it mandatory for part marking, dot pin marking machines are a great help to industries in meeting the regulatory compliances of various agencies, while gaining the ability to track, monitor their parts, inventory, etc.
