Previously, to be engraved with a machine the product had to meet several conditions. The engraving process had to be done in a workshop and the product had to be placed at the working space (a desktop, a table, etc). This made engraving and etching impossible for large and shaped metal parts. Luckily for us, this time has gone. With portable marking machines appearing at the market, the engraving process became much more flexible and mobile.
Portable Metal Marking Tools
A portable device is a smaller and more lightweight version of engraving equipment. Yet, the result it provides does not yield in quality to its bigger colleagues.
It can engrave and mark almost any symbols and codes or graphics outline, including complex data matrix codes and logos. It can provide the same level of accuracy, quality and permanence. And it can be used for product identification, traceability and quality assurance tasks. But the most important thing – it can be used in any place and for any size and shape of the product. It is very handy with metal parts.
Using Dot Pin Marking Machine Directly
For many applications direct product marking is a matter of quality assurance and fraud prevention. In automotive, aerospace, metal working and many other industries applying information directly on a surface and a use of dot peen technology are regulated by different industry standards. In these cases using labels or even metal plates is unacceptable. Thus engraving on large parts, heavy parts and parts that are hard to reach is only available with portable dot peen marking systems.
A Small Assistant for Marking Car Parts
One of the brightest examples of using portable machines is automotive industry. The norms and regulations oblige car and motorcycle manufacturers to put VIN codes, serial numbers and other required information on the surface of the product. Even on huge and heavy items like chassis, engines, frames, motor blocks. This is why portable pneumatic engraving machines are often considered special car marking systems.
However, not any portable solution can satisfy motorcycle, truck and car marking needs. Some applications require a portable device engraving automotive items to be really small to access the parts inside the car. And here is where the new miniature pneumatic engraving tool by HeatSigh comes in.
Portable Pneumatic Marking Machine by HeatSign
The new HeatSign’s PC-series pneumatic marking machines are made to fit really limited space retaining the power of bigger solutions. The devices provide quality imprinting on car parts and other big-sized products like metal equipment, pipes, tubes, etc.
This device is not much bigger than a hand or a smartphone, but can bring benefits to any manufactures working with metal and hard plastic:
● No separate controller needed
● Small size to reach parts in limited space
● magnesium alloy construction for increased stability
● Accurate marks easily recognizable by human eye and an automatic scanner
● Quick and flexible
With in-built software and a touchscreen, this pneumatic device is a true mobile engraving station operating without the computer and a separate controller.
