A solid carbide pin oscillates by pneumatic and electronic means. It is moved by two carriages in the x and y direction and strikes the material by an up and down movement. Depending on the impact frequency the marking either becomes a continuous or a single dotted line – perfect for characters, logos or two-dimensional codes, e.g. Data Matrix Code.
The force produced by the single dot marks is negligible. Due to this it is possible mark pressure sensitive, thin-walled, coated, hollow and arched work pieces. The system is suitable for almost all materials – also hardened steel!
Compared to dot peen marking the scribe marking pin does not strike into the material with an up and down movement. It is pressed into the material. In this position the carbide or diamond scribe marking pin is moved by two carriages in x and y direction. The MARKATOR scribe marking system offers optimal adaptability and high quality at a maximum marking speed.
The system is suitable for almost all materials – from hardened steel to pressuresensitive finished products!
As an alternative variation of the dot peen marking, the marking of single dot characters works also through a carbide marking pin which works pneumatically or electrically. Single dots are achieved by the defined up and down movement of the marking pin. Through to the exact definition of the dots, the matrix fonts are produced in the uni-form size of 5 x 7 or 9 x 13. Other fonts are additionally available.
The Data Matrix code makes it possible to display a lot of information in tight marking areas, on difficult interfaces and in fast production lines. A 2D-Code is considered as "secure" data transmission and can be reconstructed by Reed-Solomon error correction even if up to 25% of the code has been destroyed.
