Handheld Metal Marker Produces Continuous Lines

The Borries Model 317 handheld marking unit can scribe on sheet metal and other hard surfaces.

The Borries Model 317 handheld marking unit can scribe on sheet metal and other hard surfaces. The unit produces continuous lines for high-quality markings, which is an advantage over traditional dot peen markers, the company says. Designed for low-volume production, back-up applications or repair in high-volume production environments, it is well-suited for on-line or off-line repair VIN marking, with error proofing features such as format check on VINs depending on vehicle type, and safeguards against double marking the same VIN.

This lightweight device can be taken directly to the workpiece and comes with a selection of interchangeable fixtures for stability when marking large parts such as structural steel components. The Model 317 features a high-strength, low-wear scribe stylus made of synthetic diamond or carbide. It operates as a standalone unit or via PC or notebook software in a variety of languages. The marking controller features an EK box with integrated text display and foil keyboard, interfaces for an external keyboard, a barcode reader, Ethernet and optional onboard fieldbus communication.
