Materials of various shapes, whether round or flat, can be marked with a special embosser. A distinction must be made between the following marking systems: Needle embossers and scribe embossers. With the needle embosser, the material is marked with a carbide tip oscillating by compressed air, which is moved in the X and Y directions during its up and down movements. In the case of scribing embossers, the marking process can be compared with the natural writing process. Any characters, numbers, logos and codes (2D DataMatrix, barcodes, QR codes,…) can be embossed or scribed.
Both systems are available as hand, table, built-in and combination systems.
