Leading marks represents companies who offer a range of traditional and advanced solutions for the following marking methods:
- Dot Peen. This versatile marking technology creates the marking details one dot at a time. Marks can be alpha/numeric, symbols, logos and 2-D bar codes. System configurations can be stand-alone bench models, hand-held and integrated into production lines. Marks components and materials up to 59RC hardness.
- Laser Marking. Permanent identification without product deformation up to deep engraving can all be accomplished with laser marking. Depending on the substrate being marked, the available cycle time, and the power of the laser permanent direct-part marks can be applied quickly from stand-alone work stations to fully integrated marking systems.
- RFID. Radio-Frequency identification is becoming a popular labeling method that allows for quickly locating a component or asset, capture equipment details, and much more. Options for RFID labeling can be simple labels with adhesive, or rugged devices that survive in almost any environment.
- Labeling. Print on-demand for high volume labeling requirements, or job specific with thermal transfer printers up to 300 x 600 dpi. Terminal blocks, wire id and other electronic components can be marked quickly and clearly.Pre-printed labeling options are great for repetitive application of warning labels, container identification, and other decorative application requirements.
- Ink Marking. Ink Marking. Today’s options for ink marking enhance the traditional rubber stamp and stencil marking processes. Available in varying colors and chemistries that allow marking on metals, plastics, cloth, wood, cardboard, and more. Print alpha/numeric, symbols, including serialization and date codes, as well as bar codes quickly without the mess. Computerized and wireless hand-held, and in-line ink marking systems are available, as well as rubber stamps, daters and stencils & rollers.
- Impact Marking. Spring-loaded impact presses, roll markers and other mechanical machines marking details can be permanently stenciled or indented onto the components. Serial numbers, date codes, part identification and other marking details can be quickly applied for traceability.
- Hot Stamping. Contrast marking on plastics, wood, leather and other substrates can easily be done with presses equipped with tape that suits the material, or with branding irons. Interchange type can be used in holders or custom marking dies made with logos and patterns.
- Steel Stamps, Type, and Dies. Steel stamps, often times referred to as stencils, provide options for application of individual characters, inspection symbols, or other variable data. Steel type allows multiple characters to be ganged in type holders for quick application of consistent marking details. Available for straight or curved line arrangements for flat or round component marking requirements.
- Tags and Nameplates. Industrial tagging is needed for temporary identification or for secure identification in harsh-environments. Nameplates offer equipment details including manufacturer details that aid in service requirements and asset identification.
