The client is a well-known manufacturer of agricultural machinery.
In order to guarantee the traceability of these different types of machinery, the manufacturer wanted to create a standard nameplate for its various production sites around the world: France (5 plants), USA (2 plants), Germany, Italy, China, Brazil (2 plants) and the Netherlands.
The SIC MARKING teams developed three laser marking solutions to satisfy the client’s requirements:
All the laser marking systems are able to engrave a range of information, such as logos, a Data Matrix or alphanumeric characters.
They use specific software that is capable of working with the client’s internal database.
The laser marking machines are also equipped with a camera for reading Data Matrix codes and they store the image of reading results.
For the systems with plate loaders, the plates to be marked are positioned in loading magazines in order for the sensors to verify the presence of a plate in the marking area.
The loader and the marking head are integrated into a secure LASER class compartment.
A manual door provides access to the inside of the compartment for loading and retrieving plates, maintenance and adjustments.
A positioning system is also available for occasional marking of larger plates.
