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.
Q: Would you happen to have a Tag Map for implicit communication from a compact logix to an I Mark controller? A: Attached is an example project where you can find the mapping of the bits and their function. I-Mark-Ethernet-Example
Q: After the cell sits idle (overnight) for a period the marking head will slam into the work-piece when the cell starts operations again. A: All of the air is out of the system(or it bleeds out from sitting) and when it is re-energized it will jump / slam because Read more…
This is a great comparison between the standard dot-peen 2D code and the Patented CMT Square-Dot version. A 2D code, or Data Matrix, is specifically designed to be read by a vision system. This machine readable code can be put on parts in a wide variety of methods. These methods include ink jet, dot-peen, scribe, and laser. Dot-Peen and Scribe provide the solutions with the deepest marks, are considered permanent, and economical as compared to other methods

Sometimes a 2D code is required on the OD of a round part. This can be a challenge with the rounded surface. While the mark can be made – the camera reading will be nearly impossible due to the reflection of the light of the curved surface. CMT has overcome this challenge implementing 2 upgrades to the standard 2D code
Q: Currently only accessible by one user. Is there an install method so others can use the I-Mark software as well? A: The installer for the I-Mark software does not install for the specific user. By default the program will install with the “All Users” parameter of Windows set. Please Read more…
