Columbia Marking Tools air impact stations are designed for robotic work cells and come ready to mark with a selection of air impact markers, all required valves, impact marker mount, part rest, and optional Fieldbus for PLC communications.
The Diamond Scribe creates very clean looking marks. The diamond tip embeds into the substrate and carves the characters. This is different than a dot-peen or pinstamp method. In the pinstamp operation the carbide pin quickly impacts the surface in rapid succession while the marking head is moved across the surface tracing the characters.
The convex numbering head is a well kept secret. Many a roll marking owner has no knowledge of this tool. CMT has had many discussions with people that have no knowledge of this impressive tool.
The PR88 3 ton air impact marking press can be used to mark on the OD of round parts. The Model 88 is offered as both a unit for integration and a complete marking station. This marking application uses the bench-top C-frame mounted model 88 with a custom fixture to support a thin metal band during the marking process.
