Marking Process

Automated in-line marking systems for precision applications, delivering seamless operation and accuracy in diverse production environments.

Unparallered precision

The automatic positioning of the laser is facilitated by high-precision servo drives which control the laser's position, ensuring optimal alignment with the intended printed area. This precision control mechanism is critical for achieving consistent and high-quality marks, particularly in applications requiring exact placement and uniformity.

PLC, HMI and MES integration

Complete integration with PLC communication enables rapid job changeovers, allowing the system to quickly adapt to new marking requirements or run production without significant downtime. The system also supports manual control and diagnostics via an HMI faceplate, providing operators with an intuitive and accessible interface to manage and monitor the marking process.

Accurate part-tracking

The part tracking system integrates advanced barcode and Data Matrix Code (DMC) printing technologies, real-time data updates, and high-precision imaging to provide reliable and comprehensive traceability. This ensures quality control, regulatory compliance, and efficient production management, especially when tightly interconnected with an MES solution

Versatile marking
solutions

Key components of our system include the 3-Axis Fibre Laser Marker for high-precision applications, the Inkjet Printer for various print sizes, resolutions, and ink compositions across a wide range of materials, the Pad printer for simple shapes in various colors, and the Labeller, which accommodates different label sizes and prints any content with flexible application methods from the top, side, or bottom.

Our systems can print diverse texts, codes, and shapes, including various text sizes, fonts, barcodes, Data Matrix Codes (DMCs), logos, and custom shapes. Based on the text or shapes engraved, printed, marked, or labeled, the line or operators can sort parts into correct lanes, boxes, or reject bins. High accuracy is ensured through auxiliary vision systems, distance sensors, servo-driven positioning, and specially designed valves, enhancing efficiency, reliability, and customization in all marking processes.

Advanced automation
and integration

Automated marking systems enhance efficiency by reducing manual labour, accelerating the marking process, and ensuring consistent quality. They integrate seamlessly with production lines, minimizing downtime and boosting overall productivity. Our system offers comprehensive marking solutions with total PLC and HMI integration, ensuring seamless operation and precision in diverse production environments.

Parameters can be set from the recipe/MES system, allowing the PLC to quickly change jobs or adjust printing content. This flexibility ensures efficient accommodation of different parts, regardless of size, shape, weight, or any other parameter. By integrating third-party equipment at electrical, mechanical, and software levels, we provide a seamless and adaptable marking solution. Our collaboration with equipment suppliers ensures that we meet all customer requirements with high-quality components.

Quality control with
part traceability

Part traceability is a key feature of our marking systems, involving tracking each component from raw material to finished product. Technologies like barcode and Direct part marking (DMC) enable parts to be tracked throughout the production process. Scanners are integrated directly into the production lines, scanning barcodes and DMCs immediately after printing, serving as both a quality check and a verification of part traceability. Each scan feeds data into a central database system that tracks the movement and status of parts throughout the manufacturing process.

Integrated traceability systems ensure quality by immediately verifying the accuracy of part markings, allowing only compliant parts to proceed in the production line. This functionality not only meets strict regulatory standards but also streamlines the recall process by precisely identifying affected batches.
