Schmidt manufactures separate marking heads and controls designed for automation and integration into current manufacturing operations. These marking heads can be mounted into existing work cells, positioned at the end of robotic arms, or designed to hang from a hoist or air balancer.

A wide array of self-contained or PC based controllers are available for simple input or complete networking applications.

Our separate marking heads can be equipped with programmable powered z-axis for automatic marking height adjustment. For harsh environments, an optional shutter shield assembly moves in conjunction with our dot peen marking pin to guard against dirt and debris that may contaminate the internal components.

With Schmidt's in-house engineering and extensive application knowledge, we offer complete customization capabilities that include electrical, mechanical, and software to meet and exceed your marking application requirements.

Custom Marking Head Integration Application:

Custom Pin Marking - 3 Dot Peen marking heads, one drill bit

A manufacturer of oil drill rock bit cones was looking for a part marking solution that would increase their production rate and reduce operator physical labor. Schmidt met this challenge by integrating 3 of our Styliner® pin marking heads into one system capable of handling their wide range of part sizes. This custom machine also simultaneously placed individual marks in three different locations on each part.
