Rotary Marking Machine
Product Announcement from GT Schmidt Marking Systems
Rotary roll marking machines for high speed, high production marking of cylindrical or tapered round parts.
Parts are automatically fed to a constantly rotating carrier dial that roll marks them past a fixed concave marking die.
- Easy to automate or integrate into a production line, these part marking machines provide a continuous marking cycle that reduces part handling and minimizes or eliminates labor.
- Rotary roll marking machines are ideal for high speed, high production marking on the periphery of relatively small round parts that have minimal marking requirements. Application examples include sockets, welding tips, screws, drills, and rods.
For pure marking speed, nothing can compare to Geo. T. Schmidt rotary marking systems. Usually, they can mark up to 4,000 parts per hour, but specially designed systems have achieved speeds up to 15,000 parts per hour. The explanation for this extraordinary speed is simple, rotary systems are engineered for continuous marking action, not one-at-a-time cycling like conventional roll markers.
Parts are automatically fed to a constantly rotating carrier dial that transports them past a fixed concave marking die. The impression is indented largely by forcing parts through a pinch point created between the air-spring-pressured marking head and the pressure dial.
Schmidt is the preferred source for rotary marking systems with more than 100 years of application experience. Virtually every machine we build is customized for a specific application, but all of our rotary systems share some common specifications: 110 volt power supply, 80 psi air source, and DC motors to permit variable speed operations.
Schmidt Marking Systems' Model 19 Rotary Marking Machine is specifically designed for round parts that are unable to stand on their own, it offers high production speeds and flexible adjustments for varying lengths of parts. This gravity chute fed machine can mark a minimum of 3,000 parts per hour and can easily be integrated with an automatic hopper and bowl feed system. A spring loaded die head insures constant marking force with a maximum pressure capacity of 1 ton. It also has variable speed DC motor and an automatic parts exit chute.
Is Rotary Marking right for your application? Rotary marking systems are ideal for marking small, round parts that are stable enough to stand up on a flat surface. Specific applications include: sockets, welding tips, screws, drills and rods.
- Marking Depth: Rotary units generate light marking pressure, so if you need deep indenting an automated roll marker might be a better choice. Schmidt has a large variety of roll marking systems to help meet this requirement.
- Part Diameter: Most rotary marking machines can accept parts up to 4 inches in diameter; specially designed units required to handle larger diameters.
- Part Range: Marking diameters that vary by more than 1/4" is more labor intensive because it involves the time-consuming task of changing pressure dials.
Schmidt offers all types of direct part marking equipment and systems. With its in-house engineering department, Schmidt is knowledgeable and experienced enough to handle even your most challenging marking applications.
