Touch(screen) and Go
Propen’s handheld marking system is designed as an all-in-one mobile solution for permanently marking workpieces.
The portable M7000 marking gun from Propen, a Gravotech brand, aims to simplify marking workpieces on the shop floor. The micro-percussion marking system uses stylus technology to create permanent serial numbers, logos and other identifying marks on a range of materials. But in contrast to other handheld units, the M7000 has an integrated control unit with a 7" touchscreen for programming that can be used even with gloves. When equipped with the optional battery belt, the system becomes a fully mobile, all-in-one marking solution. As shown in a video on Propen’s YouTube channel, an operator wearing the belt can simply carry the handheld unit to the workpiece, program it via the touchscreen and mark the piece without using an external computer or power source.
