Stinger Series

Our portable pin markers are available in three styles: Stinger, Super Stinger, and Ultra Stinger. You get the same pin marking technology in all three, but different-sized marking fields. Additionally, we offer electronic versions of our Stingers, and accessories and custom options are available to increase the Stingers' portability and stability. 

Our Styliner Series Machines can be designed to fit your current project's needs by way of column-mounting, portable handheld units, integration heads, and even further machine customization. For every project, GT SCHMIDT is with you every step of the way.
