Pin Mark / Scribe Controllers

View UMC Controllers Spec Sheet



Value and flexibility…

The UMC box needle embosser control system is basically a UMC Eco without its own on-board intelligence. It is equipped with the same motor control cards as the UMC Eco.

Using your own PC or your notebook, you can use the UMC box to control our PinMark™ and MagicPin needle embossers. This way, you only obtain the most necessary features required for the optimum use of our needle embossers.
You can derive the technical prerequisites for your computer in the technical data table provided below.
Attention! – No savings at the expense of quality were made with the UMC box. We also manufacture this high-quality device in Germany.

UMC Eco control unit – now with a large high resolution color display


The controller UMC eco is used to control all our dot peen and Scribe heads in the PinMark – series.

With this device, all kinds of marking data can be sent to the head.

This marking data includes, for example:

  • 2D codes (Datamatrix)
  • Serial numbers
  • Corporate logos and other graphics
  • All other kinds of product data

Various communication interfaces make it possible to send the information to the controller. Variable data such as date, time, batch number, material composition, etc. are automatically controlled according to predefined criteria. In addition, it is possible to manipulate input data using the integrated scripting interface.

UMC 112 control unit

dotpeen controller
The UMC 112 control serves to control all needle embossers and scribers of the PinMark™ series.
This controller sends all marking data to the marking head. This marking data contains, for example:
  • 2D codes (Data Matrix™)
  • Serial numbers
  • Company logos and other graphics
  • All other conceivable product data…
Modifiable data, such as date, time, batch number, material composition, etc. is automatically generated by the control system according to previously established criteria.
Various interfaces make it possible to send the corresponding information to the control system in advance. By using a barcode scanner, for example, employee and extensive material information can be scanned in and later embossed onto the product as a compact 2D code. (This is merely one of many examples…)
The UMC 112 can control up to two marking heads simultaneously. Besides the marking data, the positions of the marking heads are also adapted to the product via the control. This means that, in addition to moving the needle in the X and Y direction, additional rotation axes, automatic vertical axes (Z-axes), indexing tables, type plate magazines, etc. can also be activated.
Advantages of using the Embedded Linux operating system:
  • Microsoft Windows™ licensing costs do not apply
  • User-friendly Windows user interface
  • Special solutions for special requirements are easier to realise
  • Stability in industrial routine
