The I-Mark I-series marking systems from Columbia Marking Tools are designed for easy integration into automation systems. Standard dot-peen and “Silent Scribe” marking versions are available. Both models are capable of marking at speeds as fast as 4 to 5 characters per sec., including 2D/UID machine-readable codes. The Silent Scribe model can also mark the company’s high-resolution Square Dot 2D code.
The system is programmed with the I-Mark software for Windows, either remotely via LAN or directly with a dedicated PC. The marking layout is shown on the screen, and serial numbers, date codes or other information can be placed and sized according to application requirements. The versatile system offers three possible mounting sides to fit easily into production equipment. Optional features include small and large marking windows, a debris shield for industrial environments, extended pins for marking in recesses, and extra-long cables to position the controller farther from the marking head.
