Component marking, identification and traceability specialist, Pryor Marking Technology, says its CNC Marking Tool produces human or machine readable, two dimensional inscriptions that meet strict international aerospace marking standards. The firm will exhibit its cutting-edge marking solution at Southern Manufacturing 2016.
It can been controlled wirelessly from a Windows computer, using the company’s standard software, which can vary the force produced by the marking head, allowing it to mark materials of different hardness.
If it is possible to mark components using the same CNC machine that made them, they do not have to be transferred to special marking stations. Moving parts around the shop floor is the biggest cause of scrappage and waste in many manufacturing environments, says sales director, Alastair Morris.
A prototype was successfully tested, demonstrating manoeuvrability and marking ability and how it could be controlled wirelessly, using a Bluetooth connection.
