When Should You Use an Impact Marking Machine
Impact marking machines are simple, cost-effective, and fast. However, they are only applicable in certain scenarios. Below are a few things to consider before using an impact marking machine
1. Types of Materials
Impact marking machine only suits sturdy materials such as metal, plastics, and composite materials. This is the most basic requirement before choosing one.
2. Permanent Marking
All impact marking machines will create permanent markings. As a result, they are the best machines for marking products used in harsh environments such as marine environments. Also, they are suitable for VIN marking.
Although they deliver permanent markings, they do not deliver markings with high contrast. As a result, you should steer clear of them and choose a laser or inkjet marking system for markings with high contrast.
4. Thermosensitive and chemo-sensitive materials
Impact marking machines are suitable for marking thermosensitive and chemo-sensitive materials. As a result, you can use them instead of laser marking systems for plastics such as PVC and the case of inkjet marking systems for chemo-sensitive materials. There compatible with any chemo-sensitive material, such as food makes impact and laser marking systems are popular in the food industry.
