Marking is becoming an essential requirement for many industries. Majority of factories considers marking a necessity for product identification and traceability. Therefore, marking is a crucial process in the manufacturing process and has gradually gained momentum as part of majority products’ design. Marking involves all industries dealing a variety of products ranging from electrical, automotive, construction and even energy products. Due to the increasing need of marking of products, marking industries for a long time have been in the forefront to ensure that comprehensive and satisfactory marking services are offered. Regardless of the size or shape of the products, marking and engraving are ecessary and a vital requirement.
Pneumatic marking machine
This is a real breakthrough in the identification of products. For the peen marking device, one enters the English letters, numbers, symbols into the computer. The relevant software for computer marking changes the contents given to the very digital control signal. Afterwards, the controller receives and drive both the print characters and graphics (composed of continuous dots ), moving the marking pin in the two-dimensional X-Y plane following the set trajectory which will print the dense dot concave marks in the workpiece surface. It has very many features that include:
- Fast engraving and marking on metal parts like steel create permanent marks
- Software is easy to edit and use, also support to import design file to mark graphic outline, like your logo marking
- Low consumptions and low maintenance, can support stable and longtime work.
Laser marking machine
For many years, lasers have been the prime permanent markers due to its high achieving results when used to engrave metal. It has a precise accuracy percentage in marking even in soft and hard metals such as aluminum and steel respectively; its legibly is high and quick which assures high-quality results, which are resistant to corrosion. This technology is suitable for specific types of metal which are alloy steel, copper, brass, coated metal, high-speed steel, anodized aluminum, titanium, and titanium alloys. Functions together with other advantages are usually being cost-effective, makes permanent engravings, time efficiency (seconds took in marking and allows higher output), design opportunities that are incredible.
Moreover, the material processing capabilities are very much reliable with non-contact and finally the product recommendations will be of high ratings. The laser marker usually has various methods of marking which include polishing where it leaves white marks on metals, engraving where it leaves marks that are tangible on the metals and annealing where the laser leaves not a single physical mark on the metal thus no ablation.
Vibro (Micro) Peen Pin Marking Machine
Due to changing times and technology, the highly rated pneumatic and laser marking machines can suitable all marking request. This results in industries trying to adapt to the new area by researching and finding new technology which can fulfill their present request. The laser and pneumatic machine has been the sole, primary marking machine of most industries but due to the marking depth on specific industrial metal part surfaces, it can not engraving enough depth. Usually, the pneumatic pen engraving machine are usually closer to the surface of the metal or element to be punched and stamped, making the markings not deep enough and mostly less visible after paint, then industrial companies and factories want to find new solutions for their product to be both valued and visually acceptable after paint.
If adopt pneumatic marking machine,marking depths of most pneumatics are usually 0.1mm-0.6 mm which can be adjusted by very skilled personnel and depends on the workpiece material. The work piece hardness should be <HRC60 for marking to be effective.So normal pneumatic marking machine can not meet the deep marking reqeust.
Some industry need to be simple and still produce accurate marks of great depth and marked effect on the products like metal working industry.oil and energy industry,automotive industry.This is where HeatSign dot (Vibro) peen marking machine comes in. HeatSign Micro Peen Marking Equipment can create deep, fast and reliable markings on the surfaces of metals that must resist very harsh environmental conditions. The marking result is still visible and readability even if the product has been plated, painted or galvanized. Usually, the stylus pen assembly has been adapted hard alloy material which can suitable big punch power for create deep markings
HeatSign technologies are continually growing and attracting more clients every year. Their undying commitment to improving identification and traceability of the products. The company provides outstanding marking solutions for various industries. Click here learn more about HeatSign dot peen marking machine
