Part-Feeding Systems


Reduce laser marking time and increase productivity with our part-feeding systems. These systems move parts into your marking machine's marking field with precision, ensuring they are in the right place for marking. Certain feeders can be loaded while other parts are being marked, minimizing the downtime between cycles. 

Custom feeders and fixtures that ensure proper fit and spacing for your parts are available. Give us a call at 847-647-7117 or contact your local Territory Manager to provide us with your part-feeding application .

Indexing Table

Indexing Table (Rotary Dial Plate)

Indexing tables are designed for marking one set of parts while loading another set of parts simultaneously. One half of the table sits inside an enclosure where parts loaded into a fixture are marked. On the outside of the enclosure, more parts can be loaded into another fixture located on the other half of the table. After the mark is completed, the table can be rotated to switch the positions of the two fixtures.

Pick and Place


The pick-and-place stacks several different-sized nameplates. The system then picks up a nameplate according to its programming and places it into the marking field. After the mark is complete, the system pushes the marked nameplate out of the marking place, then picks up the next nameplate to be marked.

Shuttle Feed


Our automated shuttlefeed holds dozens of nameplates in a magazine on one end. It "shuttles" a nameplate into the marking field where the nameplate is marked. After the mark is complete, the marked nameplate is pushed out of the marking field while the next nameplate is shuttled from the magazine and into the marking field.

Conveyor Feed

Conveyor Feed

This feeding system uses a conveyor belt to move a fixture full of parts into the marking
area, then drops the marked parts into a tote. See an example of our conveyor feed in action!
