Columbia Marking Tools (CMT), has developed ready-made, complete marking stations to interface with robotic work cells. The compact systems, called the Mite-E-Mark, specialize in marking station ID’s, date codes, or QC marks on products.
According to CMT, these air impact stations are a lower cost solution to dot-peen and laser marking systems. They also note their units are extremely rugged, provide rapid cycle times, and produce deep, highly-legible marks.
CMT’s new marking stations feature a plug-and-play design with a selection of dry or lubricated air, all required valves, marker mounts and a part rest. The height and location of the part rest are custom-designed per application. An optional Fieldbus for Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) communications is also available.
