Scribe Marking Machine
Scribe marking is an alternative technology to dot peen pin marking. Scribing uses a drop and drag pin technology resulting in a continuous mark with extremely clear character definition and an ultra quiet marking operation.
SCHMIDT Scribeliner® marking heads can be mounted to an adjustable height column, fix mounted as a nameplate feed system or installed as a separate head for in line production.
Scribeliner® Scribe Marking Overview
Originally designed for the automotive industry, these robust scribe marking systems are an alternative to our dot peen (stylus) pin marking systems. The Scribeliner® series incorporates a drop and drag pin technology resulting in a continuous mark with extremely clear character definition and an ultra quiet marking operation.
The Scribeliner® is best suited for marking applications where work decibel levels would be increased during normal impact marking, (i.e., large hollow parts, sheet steel, automotive vehicle bodies, etc). The drop and drag scribing technology virtually eliminates all sound associated with the marking process.
The Scribeliner® can apply permanent date codes, sequential serial numbers, logos, and any identification marks on your parts, sub-assemblies and finished products in accordance with ISO certification guidelines. These systems can be mounted to a manually adjustable height column, fix mounted as a nameplate feed system or installed as a separate head for production line integration.
