The 3000 C150-150D consists of three building blocks, marking head, base & column and the controller.
The Marking Head is available with 4 different marking area (see technical specifications) up to 300 x 150 mm size. The head has a precision X and Y axis which positions the marking stylus over the component to be marked. Each dot is applied by pneumatically driving, at high force, the stylus into the component. This produces a very deep mark. The ‘D’ series machines are ideally suited to marking large components where deeply marked inscriptions larger than 5mm are required.
The Base and Column facilitate the manual z-axis adjustment to allow for components of differing heights. Riser blocks are also available for marking very tall parts. The ‘Z’ models feature a powered digital Z axis. The machine can move to a pre-programmed Z position for different parts to be marked. After marking, the machine moves back allowing a better clearance for the operator. Z models are highly recommended for marking component batches with changing height.
The 3000 Controller is a separate unit to ensure it is protected from the mechanical shock loading of the marking operation. The easy to use software allows for 5 font types and up to 1350 layouts to be stored. Available in a variety of languages (including English, French, German, Spanish, Swedish, Finnish, Italian, Portuguese, Cyrillic and Czech), the software also contains features such as serial numbering, date and time marking and password protection.
