Positioning systems for marking and engraving workpiece surfaces

High-speed motion solutions for marking with the smallest lines, contours and letters

We realize positioning and motion systems for highly-dynamical marking needle, laser or plasma burner processes in 2D and 3D. Products are marked after manufacturing to ensure tracebility along the supply chain as a means for quality management. High process velocities and precise marking depth and contour width adjustments are essential for optimal and safe marking applications.
Our experts develop and design the positioning system exactly fitting to your process requirements. We optimally match design, axis selection, frame materials as well as the drive components measuring system, servo amplifiers and motors to guarantee your marking application's maximum quality.
Our customers receive a solution ready for connection, meeting the highest requirements regarding accuracy and repeatability.
Customer advantage: less expenditures, highest quality, fast market entry!
