Project: To supply a semi automatic chemical etching machine to etch steel chisel blades for a worldwide manufacturer based in Sheffield.

Following extensive consultation with the client, a Modulmat chem. Etch machine was established as the best solution, configured with a sensor controlled fixture system to provide extremely quick change from one size of blade to another.

Following the insertion of the blade, the sensor triggers the marking process , the EU300 expert then controls the marking time, electrolyte flow, and voltage automatically to provide optimum results every time.

A typical marking cycle time is only around 1.5 seconds and due to the fact that our steel electrolytes generally require no neutralisation, the whole process from loading through marking and wiping the residue electrolyte from the surface of the part can be achieved extremely quickly.
