Project: To supply a special purpose chemical etching machine to mark fixed part number for large production runs of car fuel pipes for major UK automotive manufacturer.

A specially adapted Modulmat was designed to include a sensor-triggered fixture to confirm exact location of part prior to the marking cycle being commenced via a footswitch. The customer required a very quick cycle time due to high throughput whilst still obtaining a top quality mark.

The Modulmat machine is perfect for this type of operation as it can be tightly controlled using variable air pressure for the marking head and has a dosed pump for electrolyte supply.
